Night 7 in Nottingham gave us a new leader atop the 2024 BetMGM Premier League Darts table as Luke Humphries won for the second consecutive week to knock Michael van Gerwen off top spot.

While it was a third quarter-final defeat in a row for the Dutchman, it was a night of relief for Peter Wright as a win over Gerwyn Price saw Snakebite get his first victory of the tournament.

Following a quarter-final win Wright couldn’t get past a Humphries in supreme form in the semi-finals while Luke Littler exited at the last-four stage for the third week running, losing out to an inspired Nathan Aspinall.

Despite looking in great form, Aspinall found Humphries too much to deal with as the world number one powered to a 6-3 win. Elsewhere on the night, Brighton runner-up Michael Smith couldn’t make it past the quarter-final while Price’s loss to Wright leaves the Welshman without a victory in four weeks.

The BetMGM Premier League Darts heads to Ireland this week with Night 8 taking place at Dublin’s 3Arena. Before we share our picks for our acca as well as our weekly specials, let’s take a run-through of the BetMGM Premier League fixtures as the tournament hops over the Irish Sea.

BetMGM Premier League Darts Night 8 Fixtures

The Night 8 fixtures are decided based on the current standings which means that first up we have top against bottom – Luke Humphries vs Peter Wright.

The current world champion has been in superb form in recent weeks – winning the last two nights of the BetMGM Premier League – while it’s no secret that Snakebite has struggled this year despite claiming his first win of the tournament last week in Nottingham. Humphries, though, will be looking to equal a record set by Michael van Gerwen and Michael Smith by winning three nights in a row.

The second match in Dublin sees fourth play fifth as Nathan Aspinall takes on Rob Cross for the second week running following their quarter-final on Night 7. The Asp was victorious on that occasion, just as he was in the final in Exeter where he claimed his first BetMGM Premier League Darts nightly win. Voltage will be looking for revenge and hope to move above his opponent in the standings.

Next up we have a battle of two players struggling for form as second plays seventh with Van Gerwen against Gerwyn Price. Following a storming start to the campaign which saw him win three nights out of the first four, MVG has struggled for form and hasn’t made it past the quarter-final since Night 4.

Price, meanwhile, was runner-up on the first night in Cardiff but has only made it past the quarter-final once since then so will be targeting the out-of-sorts Dutchman as a route to get back on track.

Finally, Luke Littler takes on Smith to round off the Dublin quarter-finals. Littler sits third in the table and is yet to win a night but his consistent performances mean he has made it to at least the semi-final on all but one evening. Smith has had a mixed tournament so far, winning the opening night and making the final in Brighton, but has suffered quarter-final defeats on four occasions.

Night 8 quarter-finals in full: Luke Humphries vs Peter Wright; Nathan Aspinall vs Rob Cross; Michael van Gerwen vs Gerwyn Price; Luke Littler vs Michael Smith

12/1 BetMGM Premier League Darts Night 8 Accumulator

As the BetMGM Premier League Darts heads to Ireland, we’ve put together an acca for the four quarter-final matches of Night 8.

Peter Wright, having won his first match of the 2024 Premier League Darts last week against Gerwyn Price, takes on an in-form Luke Humphries who seems to be getting better and better with each passing night.

The two faced off in the semi-final on Night 7 with Cool Hand running out a resounding 6-1 winner, putting an end to Wright’s brief revival. Humphries was dominant in that game and we can only see more of the same this week in Dublin. The man leading the league for total points, three-dart average and most 180s is 6/4 to be King of the Oche in this one (match winner, most 180s and highest checkout) and this is our choice to kick off the Night 8 acca.

Nathan Aspinall is up against Rob Cross again in the second semi-final with the Asp winning all three matches against Voltage in this year’s BetMGM Premier League, including last week’s quarter-final.

Cross, despite losing last week, has been steadily improving throughout the competition with three semi-final appearances and a runner-up spot in the four weeks prior. We’re backing Cross to get one over on Aspinall at the fourth time of trying at 7/10 as a result.

The match between Michael van Gerwen and Gerwyn Price is an intriguing one as, on paper, it is second against seventh and looks like nothing to worry about for MVG. He has been struggling in recent weeks though, losing 6-2 to Luke Littler in Nottingham and averaging just 94.83 and 93.48 in the two nights before that.

Price, meanwhile, is seemingly even more out of form, losing his last four BetMGM Premier League matches as well as failing to make it past the UK Open second round earlier this month after losing to Martin Schindler.

With this in mind – plus MVG winning 11 of the 12 Premier League matches he has played in Dublin including winning the night here last year – we are backing him to get back on track as part of our acca at 7/10.

Lastly we have Littler against Michael Smith. The Nuke continues to impress in his BetMGM Premier League Darts debut season yet remains without a nightly win – something his opponent managed at the first time of asking in Cardiff.

Littler has been consistent with his scoring and his plentiful semi-final appearances see him third in the table, just four points off top spot. Both players are hitting maximums consistently this season, with Littler on 49 180s and Smith 44 so far.

Add to that Smith topping the weekly 180s count twice so far, including hitting 15 in Brighton, and 4/5 for over 6.5 maximums looks good value in this one.

Night 8 Accumulator

  • Luke Humphries King of the Oche (win the match, hit most 180s, hit highest checkout) vs Peter Wright
  • Rob Cross to beat Nathan Aspinall
  • Michael van Gerwen to beat Gerwyn Price
  • Luke Littler vs Michael Smith over 6.5 180s

Night 8 Odds & BetMGM Specials

As well as our acca, BetMGM carries odds on a plethora of markets on all nights of Premier League Darts action. Who will come out on top in Ireland’s capital?

It continues to be hard to see past Luke Humphries. Cool Hand is very much in the rhythm and has averaged 102.14 for the tournament so far. He is 9/4 to make it three consecutive nightly wins.

Beyond the world champion, Luke Littler is 3/1 while last year’s Dublin victor Michael van Gerwen is 11/2.

Gerwyn Price is 8/1 to get his first BetMGM Premier League nightly win of the year while Rob Cross is available at 9/1, Night 5 champion Nathan Aspinall and opening night winner Michael Smith are both 12/1 and Peter Wright, after getting his first win last week in Nottingham, is the outsider at 20/1.

Still we await a nine-darter in the 2024 betMGM Premier League Darts, though we came agonisingly close in Nottingham when Littler missed double 12 to claim a first Premier League perfect leg and also to equal the record of the most nine-dart finishes in a season with four. We have odds of 7/1 for a nine-dart finish to be hit at any point.

We also have some Night 8 BetMGM Specials including a tasty-looking 10/1 for Humphries and Littler to win their quarter-final matches while also having the most 180s and the highest checkout. Littler achieved this in Nottingham in his match against Van Gerwen, while Humphries faces bottom-of-the-table Wright on Night 8.

Additionally, you can get 6/1 for Humphries, Van Gerwen and Littler to hit the most 180s in their quarter-final ties.

BetMGM has a host of other markets available before the night gets underway as well as in-play options throughout the evening, so be sure to keep an eye on the BetMGM Premier League Darts Hub over the course of Night 8.
