The new Premier League has been an oddity in so many ways, it would be fitting if it ended oddly with underdog Joe Cullen defying the odds by triumphing in his debut campaign.

Just over four months after the eight-man field kicked off the 18th edition of the PDC’s mega-bucks invitational event, there are just four left, with Cullen taking on defending champion Jonny Clayton at the the first semi-final at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Berlin and Michael van Gerwen taking on James Wade in the second.

They are both best of 19 heats with the final – which follows immediately after – contested over a maximum of 21 heats.

This is the first time the final has been played outside of Britain, the world’s two best did not reach the semi-finals, Wade did so despite a negative leg difference while Cullen did not. probably would not have succeeded at all but for a few of his crying opponents. An unusual situation indeed.

Cullen isn’t seen as a big threat by the bookies, but he has shown at times during the campaign that he has what it takes.

He pretty much knew his place in the field depended on winning the Masters at the end of January and pulled it off, which showed a lot of bottle in the first place.

He also showed real courage by defeating Van Gerwen in the final in the backyard of the Green Machine in Rotterdam on Night Seven. And he also won his win-win matchup with Peter Wright on Night 16 to stamp his ticket to Berlin.

Rockstar may be erratic and he’s certainly had some packed opportunities with a pair of walkovers that no other player has benefited from. But two good games are enough and he looks great in a market where neither top two, Clayton or Van Gerwen, are exactly dominating the game.

Cullen boasts a 9-5 win-loss record against semi-final opponents Clayton, although the Welshman has won four of their six encounters in this year’s Premier League.

The Englishman looks a fair price to beat Clayton and you could say that Wade too is on the big side against Van Gerwen. They have met five times in the Premier League in 2022 and the southpaw has won twice. At the very least, he should be made to stay in all three legs at odds.
