The finals of the biggest darts tournament in the world less than two weeks away, and you can already bet on the PDC World Championship winner with BetVictor!
The 24th Darts World Championship has been taking place for days now. 32 players are now entering into round two of the tournament in a bid to reach the finals on January 2nd. It’s shaping up to be an interesting competition, so let’s take a look at two of the betting favorites to win it all.
Michael van Gerwen – 8/13
Unsurprisingly, the number one darts player in the world is the betting favorite to win the PDC World Championship. The Dutchman has been a professional since 2002, and has won nearly every major darts tournament in the world.
Van Gerwen has been a top player for years, but it’s the past three that he has dominated. He has been in top form as of late, earning the highest ever average at the 2016 Premier League. This year alone he has won the World Matchplay, Grand Slam, UK Open, and European Championship.
Now, Van Gerwen is looking to advance past round 2 of the PDC World Championship. He already made UK gambling news with a dominant win over Kim Viljanen, and will take on either Cristo Reyes next.
Michael van Gerwen’s odds to win the PDC World Championship are currently set at 8/13, according to BetVictor. If you’re looking to bet on the PDC World Championship winner, Van Gerwen might just be your best gamble.
Gary Anderson – 11/2
As the reigning PDC World Champion, Gary Anderson is one of the best players in the world right now. Known as “The Flying Scotsman,” Anderson has gained a reputation as one of the most talented players in history. Anderson is 45 years old, and will be looking to earn at least one more major tournament title with another PDC win.
Anderson has been a pro player since 1995. He was hailed as a future world champion long before he ever won a world title. It took until 2015 for him to finally fulfill the prophecy, and he followed up with another the next year. Even legendary player Wayne Mardle said of Anderson when he hits doubles, “Nobody can live with him when he does that, whether you’re world champion or world No 1, you will get beaten by Gary Anderson.”
Anderson is one of the best choices if you’re looking to bet on the PDC World Championship this year. He is one of the most experienced players in the tournament, and is coming off two straight victories. His odds to win the 2017 PDC World Championship are set at 11/2, according to BetVictor.
