Michael van Gerwen vs Peter Wright Prediction and Odds – Premier League Darts Night 13

Michael van Gerwen has not quite been at his best for a while in the Premier League. Last week he gave up the top spot to Gerwyn Price. Will MVG get back in the winning groove as he opens in Leeds on Night 13 against Peter Wright?

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

Michael van Gerwen vs Peter Wright – Match Predictions

This is a big one for Michael van Gerwen as he looks to land a successful night in Leeds to try and take back over at the top of the table. We look into our darts predictions for this match. The winner will face either Michael Smith or Chris Dobey in the semi-finals.

Prediction 1: Van Gerwen -2.5 Handicap

We expect Van Gerwen to come roaring back after narrowly losing to Nathan Aspinall in last week’s quarter-finals. That will have hurt even more because it was in his native Netherlands. Peter Wright is out of the running for a top four finish which should help Van Gerwen’s cause of racing through this match.

Prediction 2: Van Gerwen To Win & Most 180s

Peter Wright hasn’t been able to move off the Premier League table since Night 3. He’s had chances but hasn’t followed through on them. He suffered a quarter-final exit last week which may have knocked the wind out of the small revival he was just starting to put together.

Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright Latest Form and Performances

Next let us take a closer look at the recent form of the two players, both within the Premier League and recent tournaments outside.

MVG Not Hitting The Mark

Granted MVG has an enviable record of W17 L9 in this season’s Premier League, bettered only by that of Gerwyn Price. But the last time he claimed maximum points for a night of action was in Week 6. So it’s been a barren spell. Mighty Mike suffered a shock 7-0 loss against Josh Rock in the Austrian Open semi-finals on the weekend.

Peter Wright Punches Himself Out

Peter Wright has made it past the first round of action on just three of the twelve nights of Premier League action this season. Two of those were back to back on Nights 10 and 11. But he bowed out in the QF last week in a tame performance against Dimitri Van den Bergh.

Michael van Gerwen vs Peter Wright Head to Head

Michael van Gerwen has had Peter Wright in his pocket recently, winning the last four meetings. Only one of those was a close match, MVG not shipping more than one leg in the other three wins over Wright in the sequence.
