Night 13 of the 2023 Premier League Darts season comes from the First Direct Arena in Leeds. For the first time this year, MVG isn’t the favorite to win, that honor goes to Gerwyn Price. Standing in Price’s way will not only be MVG and World Champion, Michael Smith, but also Nathan Aspinall, who won last week’s event in Rotterdam. Here we look ahead to this week’s action with our latest darts betting picks.

Nathan Aspinall’s 6-4 win over Gerwyn Price in Rotterdam secured his first Premier League Darts night win of the season. The win sees Aspinall up to third in the points table. And with only four nights remaining this season, Aspinall is now in a good position to secure a top 4 finish and a place at finals night.
Gerwyn Price’s latest run to the final was enough to see him replace Michael van Gerwen at the top of the table. The Iceman is now one point clear, and the best online sportsbooks have Price as their -110 favorite to finish top of the points table.
Price is simply playing darts on another level at the moment. But even in this red hot form, Nathan Aspinall has shown he can be beaten. So this should give hope to the rest of the field ahead of Night 13 in Leeds.

The draw for the quarter-finals this week sees Michael Smith start the proceedings off against Chris Dobey. Also in this half of the draw is MVG, who takes on Snakebite Peter Wright.
In the bottom half, Nathan Aspinall starts his night off with a winnable match against Dimitri Van den Bergh. If he wins that, he could get another crack at Gerwyn Price. But only if the Iceman can see off compatriot, Jonny Clayton

Betting to win Night 13
The excellent form of Gerwyn Price has seen the top online sportsbooks install him as the favorite to win Night 13. This is the first week in the 2023 season that MVG hasn’t started a night as the favorite with the best darts betting sites.
Gerwyn Price is +200 to win his fifth night of the season. The Iceman is followed by Michael van Gerwen at +250, and Michael Smith at +450.

Night 13 Winner Pick
We have to go with Gerwyn Price don’t we? How can we not, that is the question. The problem with this competition is that these are eight of the best darts players in the world. So on any given night, they can all beat each other.
But when it comes to making sports betting picks, we can only go on form, and what we know. And even though Gerwyn Price is beatable, as shown by Nathan Aspinall last week, he is currently the best darts player in the world.
And to further boost Price’s chances, he hasn’t played in the last two European Tour events at the weekends, meaning he is fully rested heading into the Premier League nights.
As we’ve seen from the Premier League and the European Tour this year, the grind is having an effect on some of the players. Peter Wright and Michael Smith have suffered, and even MVG hasn’t looked himself recently.
Price seems to have coped best with the constant treadmill. And his chances of success this Thursday will be significantly boosted by having sat out the last two weekends of darts. Our betting pick to win Night 13 of the Premier League is Gerwyn Price.
If you think Price is too short at +200, or you’re looking for an alternative bet to go alongside Price winning, then we think we have just the wager for you.
Nathan Aspinall has been in good form lately. As well as winning in Rotterdam last week, he also recently made it to the final of the German Darts Grand Prix, where he lost an entertaining final 8-5 to Michael Smith.
Aspinall is -125 to beat Dimitri Van den Bergh in their quarter-final on Thursday. But on the handicap line, Aspinall is +135 to win starting from -1.5 legs. That’s the difference between Aspinall winning 6-5, or winning 6-4 or better. We would happily back Aspinall to win, so why not take him to win on the handicap at +135.
