Stat's Magic!

May 16 2017
THE Betway Premier League season saw an incredible standard as ten players competed across 15 league nights - and ahead of the Play-Offs we look at all the key stats.

The season saw the second highest ever televised match average recorded as Peter Wright achieved 119.50 in his win over Adrian Lewis in Exeter.

Five other averages of 110 or more were also recorded across the 72 regular season games, while the overall tournament average sits at 98.35 going into the Play-Offs.

Michael van Gerwen topped the regular season's league table for a fifth successive year - maintaining a record which stretches back to his debut in 2013 - and also had the highest tournament average at 104.68 as well as the best finishing record of 41%.

Van Gerwen was one of three players to achieve a 170 checkout during the season, with Gary Anderson and Adrian Lewis also landing the highest possible finish.

Dave Chisnall landed the most 180s during the season with 71 - 13 ahead of Van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld's 58.

Chisnall, though, missed out on claiming a Play-Off spot as Van Gerwen, Wright, Phil Taylor and Anderson secured the top four spots.

Taylor is bidding to claim his seventh Premier League title as he bids farewell to the tournament on Thursday, having won the tournament from 2005-2008 as well as in 2010 and 2012.

Reigning champion Van Gerwen and Anderson are both two-time winners, while Wright - March's UK Open champion - is appearing in the Play-Offs for the first time, having finished in fifth place in two of the previous three seasons.
