Just two rounds into the 2021 Premier League and no-one has a 100 per cent record. Scotland World Cup team-mates Peter Wright and Gary Anderson clash on night three with Snakebite on one point so far and Anderson on three.
Peter Wright v Gary Anderson Betting Odds
Peter Wright to win - BET NOW
Wright was well and truly thumped by Michael van Gerwen on night two of the Premier League in Milton Keynes, yet he's still fancied to get his first win here. The former world champ is an 11/10 shot.
Anderson, with a draw and a win to his name thus far, is available at 19/10. The opening night saw four of the five matches end 6-6 and the draw here is available at 19/5.
Peter Wright vs Gary Anderson Head to Head
These two go back a long way having met each other almost 50 times under the PDC banner over the last decade and more. Anderson has a clear edge - he has 27 wins to Wright's 18 overall - and that advantage is even more pronounced in the Premier League. In this competition they have met 11 times and Wright has won just two of those showdowns.
Having said all that, of their last seven match-ups, Anderson has won just one of them.
Peter Wright v Gary Anderson Prediction
Wright to hit most 180s - BET NOW
It's a marathon not a sprint so Wright won't be panicking, though the manner of his 7-2 humbling by Van Gerwen on Tuesday might be a concern.
Snakebite had been inexplicably trash-talking Van Gerwen for a while and the Dutchman definitely has been patchy over the last 12 months. But the Green Machine loves nothing more than putting pretenders in their place, especially ones who lead with their mouths.
In theory, therefore, we should be able to write off that match and look back 24 hours instead when Mohican Man was averaging 101 in a high-class draw with Jonny Clayton.
That sort of form makes him a colossal danger against Anderson, who needed a magical 156 to snatch a point off James Wade and then needed Jose de Sousa to miss doubles to register his first win.
As he says, he keeps hitting a "brick wall" in games and sooner or later that's going to prove costly.
The 180s matchbet is interesting. Anderson has already hit eight in two matches, Wright just two. Yet on the Pro Tour, Snakebite averages one every 3.3 legs, Anderson one every 3.5.
