PDC World Darts Championship Preview


PDC World Darts Championship


Christmas is a great time for sporting events and one of the biggest is the PDC World Darts Championship. The atmosphere at this event is like nothing else, with Christmas cheer and the best darts players in the world coming together to give us some exciting moments. Things get underway on Friday 13th December with the first round of matches taking place that evening before a full day of action across both Saturday and Sunday to really kick start things.

PDC World Darts Championship Outright Betting

As you would expect with a big PDC event, the betting market is dominated by Michael Van Gerwen, the best player in the world. The Dutch player always comes to shine on the big stage and many will be expecting him to do the same again.

While Van Gerwen is a strong favourite, priced up at 11/10 with Unibet, it could be argued that the man behind him in the betting, Gerwyn Price, is the form man of the moment, and he is available at 5/1 with the same company.

Those looking for something at a bigger price can look at the remainder of the field, who are all available at double figures behind the front two.

Alternative Darts Betting Markets

Those looking to place a bet on the darts over the festive period do have other ways in which they can bet, if you do not want to bet on the outright market, or do not see value in it. 

Forecast the Finalists

If you like the front two in the market but can’t split them then this could be the market for you. Here, you don’t have to choose who wins, but choose which two players will be in the final. Backing a Van Gerwen vs Price final is available at 7/2 with Bet365, while every other option is available at double figure odds, so there is certainly value to be had for those who don’t fancy the front two to both get there.

180 Betting Markets

There is nothing better than seeing a maximum scored on the dart board and the best darts betting bookmakers have some great betting markets available for those who love to see these. You can bet on 180s either on a match by match basis, across the full day of action or across the whole tournament.

If you want to split it down then you will find betting markets for each game surrounding 180s including the over/under market on how many there will be, who will score the most and markets for each separate player.

Those looking for a bigger market can bet on a player to score the most 180s from all of those playing during the day, or look at the entire tournament, where Michael Van Gerwen is the current 11/8 favourite to score the most 180s in the tournament with Bet365

180 betting has really come to life in the past few years, and those who want to bet on these markets have a great choice ahead of them.
