Round One winner Michael van Gerwen try and win back to back when he plays Mensur Sujlovic. It will take a great game from Mensur to knock off the inform MVG, I can’t see him getting it done MVG for me.

Peter Wright v Michale Smith

It looks like Peter Wright is true to his word and sticking with the same set of darts, he has used the same ones for three outing now and has been showing some great form, in the first round Wright drew with the up and down Rob Cross, but I think he can get over the top of Michale Smith in hard-fought match

 

Daryl Gurney v Glen Durrant

Superchin’s form has been inconsistent since he beat MVG in the Ladbrokes Players Championship in December, losing his first-round match to Gerwyn Price, he is up against time BDO World Champion Glen Durrant making his first Premier League appearance. I am going to pick Gurney based on the experience of playing the premier league, with no confidence at all. If Durrant overcomes his stage fright anything can happen.

 

RVB v Gerwyn Price

If RVB thinks he is going to have a few wins in his final year in the premier league, I don’t think it is going to happen against Price, since winning his maiden TV title his form has been solid but overly impressive, and it won’t need to be to beat the out of sorts RVB.  In the first round, Price had a comfortable win over Daryl Gurney and I think RVB will be beaten 7-2 the same as round 1.

 

Rob Cross v James Wade

Simple known as The Machine Wade will account for the up and down form player Rob Cross, Wades steady, consistent play will be too much for Cross to handle, the only positive for Cross is that last weekend Wade lost to Kyle Anderson which was the first time in  a while but the big stage and a big chance to move further up the table is enough to keep Wade motivated.

 

So for me the winner this weekend will be

 

Wright

Gurney

Price

Wade

MVG
