Michael van Gerwen vs Nathan Aspinall Prediction and Odds – Premier League Darts Night 12

Michael van Gerwen’s place at the top of the Premier League tree could be under threat on Night 12 in Rotterdam. But will a bit of home support give him the boost to get past Nathan Aspinall in this quarter-final clash?

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

Michael van Gerwen vs Nathan Aspinall – Match Predictions

This match completes the quarter-final line-up of Night 12 action in Rotterdam. Not having won a Night since Week 6, will Dutchman Michael van Gerwen get up a head of steam this week? He faces Nathan Aspinall who is badly in need of points to claw his way back into the top four. Read our darts predictions below.

Prediction 1: Van Gerwen -2.5 Handicap

Van Gerwen has had no problem in making it past the quarter-finals this season in the league. He’s only failed to do that on two of the eleven Nights of action played. So there’s a fair chance he steams his way through this comfortably as that’s been the trend in his quarter-final fixtures.

Prediction 2: Aspinall Total Legs Under 3.5

Aspinall’s form has been on the slide recently and he was toppled in last week’s quarters by Peter Wright. He’s generally a competitive, consistent player that doesn’t get torn apart too often. But in his last meeting with Van Gerwen in the league, Aspinall didn’t even get a leg on the board.

He’s on a 17-8 record for the season in the Premier League. In all competitions, he has strangely alternated between a win and a loss in his last six matches.

The Asp Losing Ground

After sitting in the top four of the league from the start of the campaign right through to week 9, Nathan Aspinall now has to start digging deep. He begins the night two points out of the top four but has lost his quarter-finals in the last two rounds and three of the last five.
