In the head to heads between the four finalists during the league phase, M.Smith registered just 1 win and that was in the opening week against his great pal G.Anderson who was suffering with a bad back. He has lost the 5 fixtures against his rivals since. MVG in contrast won 5 out of the 6 games played, only losing to Anderson in Week 15 to deny him a 100% record against the other contenders. That also set up a Semi-Final match up with World Champion Rob Cross who he has defeated in both match ups throughout the league phase. Cross and Anderson have both won 3 and lost 3 but The Flying Scotsman has a superior leg difference. There were no draws between the players.

Cros s

Anders on

Of the 4 finalists there is very little to choose between MVG, Cross & Anderson for the most 180’s and 180 Per Leg Ratio. Anderson has it many more of the other big 3 treble visits (171, 174 & 177) – a further 17 – whereas Cross is quite prolific scoring 171. Anderson also has the highest percentage of Stray Darts and MVG the least.

Smi th

PLEASE NOTE: My data has been extracted from live.dartsdata.com and there was a couple of errors in Anderson & Smith data hence a small discrepancy in their 3DA’s. I have watched matches back to ascertain this corrected data. This data also includes Anderson checking out a miscounted referee call.

Unsurprisingly MVG tops all the stats when it comes to the 1st 9 darts scoring power of the 4 finalists. He is the only player on a finish after 9 darts in more than 50% of the legs played throughout this years league phase and also the only player on a finish after 9 darts based on the Median score left. Amazingly heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also on a finish of less than 100 in just over 20% of the legs heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s played after 9 darts. He has by far the best 1 st 9 3DA and his having a 2 or 3 treble visit on 48.68% of occasions.

Leg Win %

MVG has the best leg win percentage overall and on throw. Rob Cross has the worst leg win percentage on throw, against throw & overall. Michael Smith has the best win percentage against throw throughout this years league and his timing has been the reason he finished second in the league. The leg differences in the league stages reflect the league standings for the Top 4. MVG and Gary Anderson clearly throw the highest percentage of winning legs in 12 darts or less. Cross matches the pair over 15 or 18 darts or less. Smith has the worst record in all three areas quite considerably. One stat I like is limiting your opponent to 4 visits to the board per leg, meaning they need a 12 darter or less. MVG tops both these statistics on throw & against throw, followed by Anderson. Smith surprisingly has only won 2.53% of legs against throw & in 12 darts or less despite having such a good record against throw.

These 4 players have left the big fish 54 times between them from the 663 legs theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played collectively during this years Unibet Premier League. That equates to an outshot opportunity at 170 in 8.14% of the legs theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played. This should be left a few times on finals night and if the opportunity presents itself they have registered the first two trebles 24.07% (13) of occasions collectively and checked out 5.56% of the time (3 occasions). Rob Cross is the only player not to have had an attempt at the bull and left it the least.

No 9 darter during this years Premier League so far. Anderson has come the closest so far throughout, hitting the first 8 trebles before missing the double. MVG has got the first 7 before throwing a stray dart. Meanwhile Cross & Smith have got no further than 5 accurate darts. If there is a 9 darter it would look most likely to be MVG or Anderson. Perhaps in the final?

Contact Details Thank you for looking through this statistical guide to the final 4 players in this years Unibet Premier League. If you have any further questions regarding any statistics relating to this years events please do not hesitate to contact me on Twitter. (Contact details are below)

@CarlyFletch N.B. All data collated throughout this guide has been obtained from live.dartsdata.com or from inputting the data live in play to a database I created myself. Most of it is from the latter and as such there is some minor discrepancies to the data retrieved via the former method. The main discrepancies are Gary Andersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s data. I have 2 less checkout attempts and a slight difference in his tournament 3DA. There is also a minor difference in the tournament 3DA for Michael Smith. All data assumed correct at the time of creating this document. Background Photo: Lawrence Lustig (PDC)
