We asked seven pundits to predict how the Unibet Premier League table will look after the opening nine nights of action, ahead of Monday's Night One in Milton Keynes.

The first half of the season will be held across two blocks, from April 5-9 and 19-22, as players face each other once in the league phase, before the bottom two stars are eliminated following Judgement Night on Night Nine.

Of the seven darts pundits and commentators we asked, five picked Michael van Gerwen to reclaim his place at the top of the pile which he held from 2013-19.

2017 runner-up Peter Wright is also highly-fancied to enjoy a strong campaign, with all seven pundits predicting he will sit in the Play-Off places after nine matches.

Late replacement James Wade, who won the event in 2009, has been tipped by five pundits to also feature in the Play-Off spots.

At the other end of the table, Rob Cross received four votes to be one of the two players to face elimination on Judgement Night.
