Week seven of the Premier League sees the tungsten maestros hitting Leeds with Van Barneveld v Wright the tie of the night. Wayne Mardle expects the Dutchman to emerge triumphant...

Recommended Bet
Back Van Barneveld to win at 2.56/4


Peter Wright v Raymond van Barneveld 
21:15

Peter is unbeaten, which is some achievement considering it's his debut season in the Premier League. Snakebite has been the coolest of customers under extreme pressure during the first six weeks.

But, despite all that, I think RVB can get the better of him on Thursday. The Dutchman has been playing well since he cut his own flights to a shape that have made his darts enter the board with the pace and angle he wants. He's a confident man right now and, to beat Barney when he's playing well, you have to play perfectly.

As mentioned, Snakebite is unbeaten but I think that record goes on Thursday. It will be a close match that'll be decided by a moment of magic and the dynamic Dutchman is your man for that occasion.
