After all PDC tournaments have been canceled or postponed, the organizers at the Professional Darts Corporation have decided to arrange a new type of tournament. On the PDC Home Tour players will take part in the competition from their own homes, all the games will be streamed live on PDCTV. Bet on the PDC Home Tour now where well-known top players are the favorites.
Everyone with a tour card, so 128 players will take part in the new online tournament, which will start tomorrow, the 17th of April. Four players will fight every night for 32 consecutive days. In the first round of the tour, players are divided into groups of four, the winner of each group will get to the knockout stage. Fans will have the chance to follow the matches online for free on PDC’s own channel after registration. We don’t know the names of all the participants yet, as only the players of the first four nights have been announced. But they already include top players like Peter Wright and Gerwyn Price.
Bet on the PDC Home Tour where Wright and Price are the favorites
In the historic first online PDC tournament current world champion Peter Wright will be the first player to appear. He will start the competition on the first night, tomorrow evening in part of Group A. He has relatively easy opponents in the group. Probably Welsh player and former World Championship semi-finalist Jamie Lewis can be the most difficult one. Still, Wright’s odds to win the group is 1.50. Online sportsbooks in the UK are also favoring him as the winner of the whole tournament so far with the odds of 5.50 at 1xBet Sportsbook.
In the second group, we can find one of Wright’s biggest rivals, two-time Grand Slam of Darts winner Gerwyn Price. Price is not the favorite of fans who often boo him live. So actually he might benefit from a home environment. He is also favorite to win his group with the odds of 1.57. Though young talent Luke Woodhouse might cause a surprise. Price has been given the same odds for the final win as Wright with 5.50.
Favorites in Group 3 and 4
On Sunday night we might see the most exciting game between Dave Chisnall and Scott Waites. Chisnall is a well-known name in the world of PDC. He reached the final of the 2013 World Grand Prix and 2014 Grand Slam of Darts, losing both against Phil Taylor. While Waites is a former two-time BDO World Champion, who joined the PDC this season. Still, Chisnall is the favorite to win their duel and also the group with the odds of 1.83 at 1xBet Sportsbook.
You can also bet on the PDC Home Tour on the first woman to win a PDC Tour Card, Lisa Ashton. She will play on Monday night in Group 4. Online gambling sites in the UK are not giving too many chances for her to qualify for the next stage. Her odds are only 5.50 to win the group, while the biggest favorite there is Ross Smith. Smith reached the quarter-final of the UK Open last year has the odds of 2.50 to win the group.
