2022 Premier League Darts Tips and Predictions: Play-Offs

The 2022 Premier League season comes to a close on Monday at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin with the top four players all vying to become champion.

Defending Premier League champion Jonny Clayton ended the weekly rounds on top of the table. He collected 40 points thanks to four nightly wins.

Michael van Gerwen finished nine points behind Clayton in second, while James Wade clinched third with Joe Cullen beating Peter Wright on night 16 to claim the fourth and final place.

The format for the play-offs is 1st versus 4th and 2nd against 3rd. That means Clayton takes on Cullen and MVG battles Wade with the winners advancing to the final later in the evening.

Before the tournament started, I backed Cullen to win the whole event. Seeing as he has made it to the final night, I cannot and will not back against him. He has his work cut out against Clayton, but he definitely has the game to beat the Welshman.

I am being loyal to Cullen, but you don’t have to. For what it’s worth, I do think the winner of this tie will win the tournament, so if you don’t fancy backing Cullen go for Clayton instead.

What is the new format for Premier League of Darts?

The Cazoo Premier League returns this year with a brand new format for the 18th year of this prestigious competition.

This year, the Premier League will see eight players go head-to-head in 16 mini-events before a play-off series will determine the new champion.

The Premier League has had a number of format changes since it was unveiled in 2005. It started off with seven players, before it changed to eight then 10, while recent years has seen some challengers get involved in the action.

The Premier League will still be played in 17 arenas across the UK, Ireland, Netherlands and Germany this year and offer a bumper, increased £1 million prize fund.

The new development this year will see eight players compete with 16 league nights being individual events with a quarter-final, semi-final and final over the best of 11 legs. The winner of each night will also receive a £10,000 bonus.

Ranking points will be awarded during each night. Five points will go to the winner, three to the runner-up and two to the losing semi-finalists. The points will be added to a league table with the top four qualifying to the play-offs.

Across the 16 weeks, players will face each other twice in a quarter-final tie to form the draw for 14 nights, with the additional two nights (night eight and night 16) seeing the stars face off again in a draw bracket based on the league table following night seven and night 15 respectively.


Each night will see quarter-finals, semi-finals and a final played over the best of 11 legs (first to six).
Each player will meet the other seven players twice over the course of the season in a quarter-final game, plus two further nights will feature additional fixtures in the same format.

League Points

Night Winner – 5 points + £10,000 bonus
Runner-Up – 3 points
Semi-Finalists – 2 points

Treble Boost

This allows you to back your selected player to win the match, hit the most 180s and get the highest overall checkout.

If you do not fancy risking your money on the Treble Boost, backing your selected player just to hit the most 180s is also available.
