<p style="text-align:center"><span style="color:inherit;font-family:inherit;font-size:1.2em;font-weight:700;text-align:center">Premier League Darts Week 14 Matches</span><br /><strong>Thursday 2nd May 2019, Manchester</strong></p><p>Last week we tipped up one winner, as Daryl Gurney defeated Peter Wright at 13/10 (2.30) to move within one point of a semi-final place as all three other matches last week finished as a draw. Therefore, Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright occupy the top two spots in the Premier League of Darts and four players will fight it out for the two remaining places to reach the semi-finals. Two of these players clash on Thursday night as Price faces Wade in what is sure to be a great match up. Elsewhere Suljovic will fancy his chances against Wright as will Cross against Smith. In the other match van Gerwen hosts Gurney, which may not be as one sided as people think.</p><p>See our preview below with top tips to make some profit.</p><p style="text-align:center"><br /><strong>Rob Cross Evens (2.0) <a href=";a=95095aa3-ae41-43ba-886d-99a97893c4a3&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Boylesports Today!">Boylesports</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Draw 4/1 (5.0) <a href=";a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Michael Smith 11/5 (2.2) <a href=";a=1ba923f3-5341-4bda-b457-0138ac61ae7a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in game with Betfred!">Betfred</a></strong></p><p>Rob Cross has not won in his last two games with a draw last week against Gerwyn Price and a defeat to Michael van Gerwen the week before. Still sitting comfortably in second place, Cross can’t be complacent in the final couple of weeks and will look to take advantage of facing Smith who sits joint bottom of the Premier League of darts. For this reason and the fact Cross has won eight of his thirteen matches, we strongly fancy Cross to get back to winning ways and with a good performance over Smith with high scoring and % check-outs.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li><u>Rob Cross to beat Michael Smith Evens (2.0) Boylesports</u></li></ul><p> </p><p style="text-align:center"><u><img alt src="" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></u></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Peter Wright 21/10 (3.1) <a href=";a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Betfair</a></strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Draw 4/1 (5.0) Bet365</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Mensur Suljovic Evens (2.0) <a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Ladbrokes</a></strong></p><p>Mensur Suljovic drew last week with Michael Smith which was a surprise to a few given Suljovic’s good form this season in the Premier League of darts. This week he faces Peter Wright, who like Smith sits on nine points in the table. With Wright losing four of his last five matches and Suljovic needing to get back to winning ways to move back into a semi-final spot, we’re tipping up a win for Suljovic this week. Not only because he is the better player, but he is a lot more consistent than Wright and should he show this on Thursday then a win for Suljovic is likely to happen. At Evens (2.0) for the win, it’s a good price to take given the difference in class between players.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li><u>Mensur Suljovic to beat Peter Wright Evens (2.0) Ladbrokes</u></li></ul><p> </p><p style="text-align:center"><u><img alt src="" style="width:700px;height:394px" /></u></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>James Wade 13/10 (2.3) Betfair</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Draw 4/1 (5.0) Bet365</strong></p><p style="text-align:center"><strong>Gerwyn Price 6/4 (2.5) <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">William Hill</a></strong></p><p>To say these two players are closely matched is an understatement. They have identical records in this season’s Premier League of darts with five wins, five draws and three losses and price has only won one more leg across all thirteen weeks. Last week Wade draw with van Gerwen while Price drew with Cross. Therefore with the draw a tasty 4/1 (5.0) with Bet365, this is definitely a value play for us this week. What’s more, when these players met back in week 3 we saw a draw.</p><p><strong>Best Bet:</strong></p><ul> <li><u>James Wade to draw with Gerwyn Price 4/1 (5.0) Bet365</u></li></ul>
