PDC 2023 Premier League Cardiff Odds
Here’s a look at the darts odds for those who want to bet on the action in Cardiff this Thursday:
- Michael van Gerwen to win @ 3.00 (2/1)
- Michael Smith to win @ 4.33 (10/3)
- Peter Wright to win @ 6.00 (5/1)
- Gerwyn Price to win @ 6.50 (11/2)
- Jonny Clayton to win @ 13.00 (12/1)
Looking at the bookies in Wales, Michael van Gerwen is the clear favorite to win on Thursday night at 3.00 (2/1). His performance last week has only strengthened the Dutchman’s odds, giving him a good lead over second-placed Michael Smith on 4.33 (10/3). The odds drop off from here, with Wright and Price double the odds of van Gerwen and Clayton a long 13.00 (12/1).
Recap of the PDC 2023 Premier League Night 1
Before the darts action heads to Wales, let’s recap how the opening night of Premier League Darts went down in 2023.
Chris Dobey entered the night still riding the high of winning his first-ever televised event at the Cazoo Masters a few days before. We picked that he might ride that momentum all the way to glory in the Premier League, and that’s exactly what he did, brushing aside Peter Wright, Nathan Aspinall, and Michael van Gerwen to win Premier League Night 1 in Belfast.
Can Dobey continue his wild ride in the world of darts, or will van Gerwen get his revenge this week and build towards his title defense?
Darts Cardiff 2023 Betting Picks
Those who want to bet on darts online will have plenty of opportunities ahead of Night 2 of the Premier League Darts this week. Here are our top three darts tips for Cardiff 2023:
Michael van Gerwen to Win @ 3.00 (2/1)
Defending champion Michael van Gerwen came oh-so-close last week, falling in the final 6-5 to Chris Dobey in Belfast. We say this week he’ll go one step further and win the evening – and the bookies agree with us, having lowered their odds from last week to 3.00 (2/1).
Nathan Aspinall to Beat Peter Wright @ 2.30 (13/10)
Two weeks in a row, Peter Wright has been beaten by players ranked significantly below him. At the Cazoo Masters, it was Rob Cross; last week in Belfast, it was Chris Dobey. On the other hand, Nathan Aspinall looked impressive last week when he defeated Gerwyn Price in their quarterfinal. The two are due to meet in a quarterfinal this week, and we say there’s a good chance Aspinall will again send Wright packing early here.
Chris Dobey @ 15.00 (14/1)
Can the Englishman keep his momentum going in Cardiff? Surely not – but also, with two big wins in a row, and odds of 15.00 (14/1), it’s hard to resist a bet here. Dobey has Gerwyn Price in his quarterfinal, who looked out of form last week, before a likely semifinal against van Gerwen, who he beat last week. If Dobey makes the final, chances are he’d be up against a fellow countryman in Michael Smith. Could he do it again?

As much as we’d all love to see the fairy tale of Chris Dobey continue, our darts betting prediction is that Michael van Gerwen will spoil the party.
