We look at some match predictions for this big clash in the quarter-finals of the Night 9 Premier League Darts. Price has won the last two rounds of action to strengthen his position in the top two. Wright meanwhile has been unable to haul himself off the bottom of the table. The winner of this faces either Michael van Gerwen or Jonny Clayton in the semis.
Prediction 1: Wright +1.5 Handicap
We are kicking off with Wright to not lose by more than one leg in this interesting clash. Snakebite has had some big blowouts in matches this season, however, he did put up a decent fight against Van Gerwen in last week’s quarter-finals, only losing on a deciding leg. If he brings that competitiveness forward, he can push Price close in Germany.
Prediction 2: Price Most 180s
The only match that Peter Wright has won this season happened against Gerwyn Price back on Night 6. That was a close one, settled by a deciding leg only. But it is something that should give Wright a bit of confidence heading into this one. However, Price has tallied 45 maximums in this campaign compared to just 18 by Wright. So we’ll back The Iceman to win this area.
Peter Wright and Gerwyn Price Latest Form and Performances
To get some further insights into our darts predictions for Peter Wright vs Gerwyn Price, we next look at the current form of the two players ahead of their Nigh 9 clash.
Snakebite Still Sliding Out Of Form
Peter Wright has a shocking W1 L8 record this season in the Premier League, but that lone win happened against Price. Still, this isn’t the same Peter Wright that has won World Championships before, he’s well below that kind of level at the moment. Given that his chances of making the top four are extremely slim, motivation can’t be high at the moment from him.
Gerwyn Price Seeks A Hattrick
Earlier this season Michael van Gerwen won three Nights in a row. Now Gerwyn Price has a chance to emulate that after winning the last two rounds in Nottingham and Newcastle. So there is a clear difference between the two in terms of the current form. Price was dominant last week and if he’s back anywhere near that level, he should bank this win. He goes into the Premier League action this week after winning the European Tour night in the weekend which included match victories over Michael Smith and Michael van Gewren.
Peter Wright vs Gerwyn Price Head to Head
Peter Wright won the one Premier League meeting between himself and Price this season, a 6-5 victory. That’s back-to-back wins for Wright over The Iceman in all tournaments and three in the last four.
