Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright Prediction and Odds – Premier League Darts, Night 6

It’s Night 6 action from the 2023 Premier League Darts on Thursday and there’s a heavyweight clash to come between Gerwyn Price and Peter Wright. After both had early exits from the previous week’s round of action, who will come out on top in this exciting duel?

These odds from Ladbrokes were correct at the time of writing.

Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright – Match Predictions

This should be a great clash between two former World Champions, with a little extra spice thrown in because they both need bounceback performances from recent Premier League and UK Open misfires. Let’s look closer into our darts predictions for the match.

Prediction 1: Price To Win

The first Premier League darts pick is going to be the victory for Gerwyn Price. His form in this season’s Premier League has not been quite as hot as expected, but he did win Night 2 and was a runner-up on Night 4. That far surpasses the miserable output that opponent Wright has produced. Price has won two of the last three Premier League Darts meetings with Wright too.

Prediction 2: Price -1.5 Handicap

We can see this match being fairly tight, but in this season’s league, Price has won more than double the number of legs than Wright has done. That is enough to point towards a -1.5 handicap victory for the Iceman on the night. Price has won an average of 5 legs per match while Wright in contrast has an average of 4. Tight, but doable.

For Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright Premier League Darts tips, we will look next at the respective current form of the two. There is certainly room for improvement for both of them.

Gerwyn Price To Raise The Heat On Wright?

Former World Champion Price bowed out early of this month’s UK Open. It was another disappointing result from him, leaving the Iceman with four wins in a run of ten matches. On Night 5 of the Premier League, he was easily beaten by Michael van Gerwen, a player he had pushed all the way in the Final of Night 4. The Iceman looks the more likely of the two on the night in this one, however.

Snakebite Can’t Find His Winning Touch

No wins in five Premier League matches for Wright this season sums it up. He did grind out a couple of tight wins over Stephen Bunting and Callan Rydz at the UK Open before losing to World No. 71 Richie Burnett. He just hasn’t been able to get up a head of steam, making him once again, vulnerable.

Gerwyn Price vs Peter Wright Head to Head

The most recent meeting between the two players was at the Nordic Masters back in January, a match that Wright won commandingly 11-5. Price has won two of the last three Premier League Darts meetings. In the last ten fixtures, it’s been five wins each, so this is a great competitive rivalry.
