This is an interesting clash with the winner going on to meet either Michael van Gerwen or Peter Wright in the Night’s semi-final in the Premier League draw. Nathan Aspinall has struggled for results against the DreamMaker, and he goes into Thursday’s fixture as the underdog. Here are our top darts predictions for the fixture.

Prediction 1: Van den Bergh to win

Dimitri Van den Bergh appears to have Nathan Aspinall nicely in his pocket, dominating the head-to-head between the two players. The DreamMaker has won both Premier League meetings this season and because of that, we have to roll with the head-to-head trend continuing there. It’s a big one for Van den Bergh who trails Aspinall by two points only in the standings in the race for a top-four finish and he should be fired up.

Prediction 2: Van den Bergh -1.5 Handicap

There could be a nice play towards the -1.5 handicap on Van den Bergh, who has covered that in both matches against Aspinall this season. So it’s back on the table for darts prediction this week. In Van den Bergh’s last seven wins over The Asp, he has secured victory by at least two legs. So the trend for darts betting is there.

The Asp Loses Momentum

Nathan Aspinall’s quarter-final loss to Van den Bergh last week snapped a run of back-to-back semi-final berths. It was only the second time this season that he had failed to make it past the quarter-finals. Aspinall is on a 6-7 match win/loss record this season and has started to slip back in the league standings. He needs a recovery but he is facing a bogey opponent.

Dimitri Van den Bergh To Extend Head To Head Form?

Van den Bergh has struggled for consistency this season. He hasn’t managed to post back-to-back weeks when he has made it past the quarter-finals. Should the trend continue he should fall in this match. But two of his five league match wins this season have come against The Asp. So he definitely gets the edge in what should be a tight match.

Nathan Aspinall vs Dimitri Van den Bergh Head to Head

The head-to-head record between Aspinall and Van den Bergh is dominated by the latter. The DreamMaker extended things to a 10-match winning streak against Aspinall with his 6-4 victory last week. That includes all four previous Premier League meetings.
