If Darcy thought that Bingley wasn't serious, i.e., that Bingley would soon get over Jane, then there would be no reason to separate them. And if Bingley wasn't in love, there would also be no reason to separate him from Jane.
I believe that Darcy felt that Bingley was fairly serious. He says he did not think that Jane reciprocated Bingley's feelings, though how he could possibly decide that during a portion of the Netherfield Ball I cannot fathom. I think he would have tried to separate them even if he had thought Jane was also in love, because he had decided he knew what was best for Bingley.
Presumption and arrogance, I must say! :-)
