Jonny Clayton vs Dimitri Van den Bergh Prediction and Odds – Premier League Darts Night 15

Jonny Clayton vs Dimitri Van den Bergh – Match Predictions

This is an interesting clash coming up because Jonny Clayton needs the win to try and strengthen his grip on the final qualification spot for Finals Night. Here are our darts predictions.

Prediction 1: Clayton -1.5 Handicap @ 21/20 (2.05)

Jonny Clayton has everything to play for in this match, so we expect him to put in a good performance. He had a good week in the Premier League seven days ago in finishing as runner-up, so he has a bit of momentum behind him to back him up as well. Van den Bergh doesn’t have anything to play for, so the Belgian may not put up too much resistance.

Prediction 2: Van Den Bergh Total Legs Under 4.5 @ evens (2.00)

We don’t see Dimitri Van den Bergh doing enough to threaten Jonny Clayton in this one. So we are looking for a low total from him in terms of the number of legs that he puts on the board. He’s found the going tough and facing a player who desperately needs to win, isn’t going to help his cause.
