Premier League Week 7 – Football & Racing News – Star Sports

Welcome to Week 7 of the 2024 Premier League. This week, the 4-month road-show makes a stop in Nottingham where Humphries leads the market but not too far ahead of the recently crowned European Tour Champ Littler, writes LEWIS WILLIAMS.

The action in Belgium for the first European Tour of 2024 was won by Luke Littler who continued to surpass expectations with a 9 darter in the final and an average of 103.76.

Peter Wright has been playing more and more right lately but is still 6 nights deep into this Premier League campaign without a single point.

I feel like I’m bashing my head against a wall every time I back him but in all fairness, he’s slowly overcoming his demons from earlier in the year and +1.5 legs at


?





is a fair bet considering two of his last three Premier League defeats have finished 6-5. These were against Smith and Littler and he averaged 103.37 against the latter.

He arrives after a very respectable European Tour campaign in Belgium where he defeated van Gerwen before going down to Johnny Clayton while averaging 100.02. That figure would’ve surely been enough to send him to the quarter-finals the majority of the time but a 104.06 display from the Welshman stopped Wright in his tracks.

Still, though, that performance would’ve been a real boost for Peter who has too often travelled to another part of the world this year to be eliminated in the first round. Sitting rock bottom of the table, I’d argue the pressure is virtually nonexistent for him tonight and if he goes there and plays his own darts he has every squeak in this fixture.

It’s been profitable to take on Gerwyn Price on Thursdays lately and he’s too short at

for a player who has lost in the first round for the last three weeks, with a lowest average of 90.73 two Thursdays ago.

His European Tour effort at the weekend is driving his price too short, and although he made the semi-finals and beat the likes of Clemens and Gary Anderson averaging triple figures, he seems to be struggling on the Premier League stage nearly as much as Peter Wright lately.

looks like a fair price for someone who has just blown the European world apart by winning the first European Tour title in Belgium to go alongside the firsts this year that he’s achieved including winning the first World Series Event and PC Event. Not to mention his 9 darter in the final, taking his 2024 PDC tally to 3.

Although he hasn’t made his just yet mark in the Premier League, he’s had some bitterly close moments including missing two at double for the match against Michael in a final some weeks ago and


?





to win Week 7 also looks fair.

It’s been a pleasure this year watching Littler grow into a more complete player on the world stage and exert more and more of his character as it grows. This was the case most recently against Ricardo Pietreczko who was beyond rattled with his defeat to the 17 year-old as seen by his social media posts that claimed Littler was too arrogant for his age.

Littler’s last four matches in that event all recorded averages of over 101 with a peak of 110.06. To contrast, Michael van Gerwen’s last four games have been defeats with averages all below 95 and if you asked me who’s more likely to hit triple figures tonight, Littler would be overwhelmingly odds-on.

Nathan Aspinall

Nathan Aspinall has won both meetings of this fixtures in the Premier League this year and this match once again feels like the performance of the favourite in Belgium has distorted the prices slightly.

Don’t get me wrong, Rob was outstanding in Belgium and his game continues to go from strength to strength with all 5 matches with an average above 96. However, only one was triple digits and that was in a memorable final against Littler who seems to somehow draw out the best of any opponent he plays.

Granted, Nathan’s recent matches are nothing to get excited about with two defeats in the 80s, but let’s not forget he won Week 5 just two Thursdays back with all three matches above a 95 average, which will certainly be enough to beat a Rob Cross who is yet to win a night in this Premier League.

More recently than Asp’s Week 5 win was the UK Open where Rob exited the tournament with an 87.45 average and as we know, darts players’ form comes in swings and roundabouts and I’m more than happy to take the underdog chance for this match at
