THE PREDICTION

The 2020 Premier League resumes under different playing conditions as the action takes place without fans present at Milton Keynes but that does not necessarily mean a lack of quality or drama as was proven at the World Matchplay in July. The first fixture of the night sees a mouth-watering match-up between Michael Smith and Gary Anderson who met in a thrilling World Matchplay semi-final at this very venue only a month ago in which Anderson won 18-16. It’s quite difficult to be confident on how quickly both players will settle into the contest as they haven’t been playing competitive darts since the Matchplay, but hopefully we will still see them serve up a good quality encounter. I’m finding it hard to split them and think it could be worth taking a punt on the match to finish as a draw.
