2024 Premier League Darts Night 12 Rotterdam Tips: Positives for Price

Gerwyn Price Darts
Gerwyn Price may not qualify for the play-offs but is still great value to win a night

Rotterdam hosts the next leg of the Premier League tour and Gerwyn Price should feel good about his game despite his league position...

  • Price still great value to win a night

  • Humphries high scoring to continue

  • Cool Hand to make another semi-final


Price playing too well to be ignored

Remarkably, despite sitting seventh in the Premier League table with his chances of reaching the play-offs now surely all but over having suffered another first round defeat in Birmingham, Gerwyn Price still boasts the second highest running average of all the players in the field.

As he said himself at the weekend, if it wasn't for missed darts at the outer ring, he could easily be comfortably inside the top four.

The Iceman was sublime, as he always seems to be, at the European event in Riesa and I still think there is great value in backing him to win a night before the end of the league phase, he is 6/17.00 to do so in the Netherlands this week.

Of the Premier League players who competed on the Euro Tour at the weekend, Price is the only one who made it to the final session, continuing his sensational love affair with Riesa, losing out to Martin Schindler in the final despite averaging over five points more than his opponent.

Against Ricardo Pietrezcko in round three, he was spellbinding. An average of 115.74 was his 27th over 110 in the last five seasons and the third highest we have ever seen on the Euro Tour, remarkable stuff.

MvG showed why he's been the dominant force

I said last week that I feared for MvG. He sat precariously in fourth position having won one game in six weeks of Premier League action, inconsistent performance levels and a number of other players around him in the table digging deep and grinding out results.

Well, I should have learnt by now that I needn't have worried because more often than not, he'll find a way in this tournament!

The final against Luke Littler in Birmingham didn't really deliver in terms of quality, neither player at their captivating best but a 90 average was enough to secure all five points for MvG and move him back up to third in the table.

In Rotterdam he takes on the current world number one Luke Humphries.

Cool Hand has won their last two meetings including the final of the German Darts Grand Prix, after which MvG admitted that Humphries is the best in the world right now - not something the Dutchman has said about many others in the past.

They are the two strongest finishers in this year's field but Humphries has scored significantly heavier and more consistently than the reigning Premier League champion. I'm backing the reigning world champion to win and hit the most 180s in this contest at 13/102.30.

Back Humphries to win & hit the most 180s @ 13/102.30
