Premier League debutant Glen Durrant currently tops the standings on nine points after six match-days played prior to the lockdown, though given he is just two points ahead of fifth-placed World Champion Peter Wright, it’s clearly all to play for.
The two face-off in a fascinating battle on Night Seven on Tuesday, with Wright evens to win. Durrant is 15/8, with the draw 3/1.
Regardless, the bookmakers don’t appear to be convinced ‘Duzza’ can go all the way, with Sky Bet making him 12/1 to win the tournament. Wright is much shorter at 9/2.
Indeed, the three-time Lakeside champion suffered disappointment at last month’s World Matchplay when he was beaten by eventual champion Dimitri van den Bergh in the semi-finals, but is determined to bounce back and reach the play-offs.
“Losing in the semi-finals of the World Matchplay was a real heartbreaker and a missed opportunity. The bookies aren’t often wrong, and for a big part of the tournament I was the favourite. It was a tough loss to take,” Durrant admitted.
“But you can only look forward and I’m in a fortunate position to come into the Premier League restart top of the table.
“I said at the start of the tournament my only aim was to avoid being eliminated on Judgement Night but with the position I’m in now, I’m going to have a real good crack at making The O2.”
Michael van Gerwen has won the league phase seven years running, but will need to significantly improve his recent form to continue that impressive streak. The Dutchman has had a mixed year, typified by being dumped out of last month’s World Matchplay by Simon Whitlock in the second round.
However, he remains favourite to win both the league phase for an eighth consecutive season at 4/7, and the tournament outright for a fifth consecutive season at 11/10, and he certainly sounds hungry to continue his winning run.
“Of course it was disappointing to lose at the World Matchplay, but sometimes these things can happen in darts,” Van Gerwen explained.
“It feels like a long time ago and since then I’ve been looking forward to getting back on stage and doing what I do best.
“I noticed during these breaks that I really miss playing on the highest level every week and that is a good sign to me that I am hungry.
