Michael van Gerwen Average Over 105.5 v Phil Taylor

Darts - Premier League - 12 May 20:45

In the battle of the top two players in the league, I feel there is a certain level of uncertainty surrounding the outcome of this one. This is down to, in my mind, whether Taylor can raise his game to go with van Gerwen.

What I am in no doubt about is van Gerwen's ability to produce a good enough performance to get over this mark. Since a poor start in week one, he has been over this mark in 11 of the 14 fixtures he has played. This included one week with two averages below this mark, demonstrating it as more of a bad week for him rather than a run of bad averages.

He plays tonight in front of his home fans, which some may view as a daunting task, but not in my mind for MVG. van Gerwen has won the Dutch Darts Masters in his home country for the last 3 years, playing superb darts throughout. He has, when given the opportunity to play there, not let anyone down and I highly doubt he will this evening.

In Taylor, van Gerwen faces an opponent who normally brings the best out of van Gerwen. He was comfortably over this mark against him in their previous 3 Premier League fixtures, and, with the possibility of topping the table ahead of his rival here, I expect we will see a motivated van Gerwen striving to produce his best. That may see him try too hard at times but it will still very likely see him over this very achievable mark.
