Peter Wright, the winner on the opening night of the revamped Premier League, finds himself in the unusual position of favourite against rival Michael van Gerwen.
Peter Wright v Michael van Gerwen Head to Head
These two great rivals first played each other 13 years ago and it was Van Gerwen who dominated, once winning 16 in a row against the Scot.
Of late, however, fortunes have been reversed with Wright winning five of their last seven meetings. Van Gerwen still holds a 58-22 record between the pair overall, while they have also played out two draws.

Peter Wright to win – BET NOW
Wright was crowned player of the year in 2021 after winning the coveted Matchplay and World Championship double – and he's now got his sights set on further success.
He's only a few quid away from replacing Gerwyn Price as world No.1, has a first Premier League in his sights, and he's also on course to turn his famed rivalry with MvG into yesterday's news.
Under 5.5 180s in the match - BET NOW
That Wright is the favourite against the Green Machine shows how far the fortunes of these two have turned in recent times and Snakebite looks all over the bet.
Wright was faultless last week, coming from behind to hammer Michael Smith in his quarter-final, showing his grit to pip Gary Anderson in a thrilling semi and then turning on the afterburners to destroy Jonny Clayton in the final.
Five points on the board he's now the Premier League favourite after just one round of action, a round in which Van Gerwen fell at the first hurdle against Anderson.
The Dutchman followed that up with a pair of unimpressive efforts in Barnsley on the Pro Tour and at the moment his game's a bit of a mess.
He can turn it around – he's a multiple major winner for heaven's sake. But just now Wright looks to have his measure and looks the bet.
One of them is more than capable of firing in a barrage of maximums but in these best-of-11 matches, going under 5.5 180s looks the bet. Last week only two of the seven matches yielded six or more maximums.
