World’s No. 1 Van Gerwen is top dog
Taylor has the best odds at BetVictor
Title-holder Anderson is third favourite
Michael van Gerwen has the shortest 2016 World Darts Championship odds to win, but BetVictor also has excellent options for Phil Taylor.
The upcoming PDC World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace will be the 23rd such event. Gary Anderson, the Flying Scotsman is the defending champion, but obviously world’s No. 1 Michael van Gerwen is the favourite to win the tournament. Phil Taylor is also in the mix naturally and his fellow Englishman Adrian Lewis might also have a shot at the title. So, have a look at the 2016 World Darts Championship odds with the courtesy of BetVictor, one of the best online sportsbooks in the UK!
Michael van Gerwen 2016 World Darts Championship odds
Van Gerwen is first in the Order of Merit, but this is not news for those, who bet on sports in the EU. MVG just dominates the world of darts right now and he is the obvious favourite before every PDC premier event. Interestingly, Mighty Mike won the event at Ally Pally only once, two years ago, when he beat Peter Wright 7–4 in the final. (By the way, Snakebite is the only Scotsman apart from Anderson to reach the final. He has now 9.00 (8/1) 2016 World Darts Championship odds to do that again.)
Last year MVG reached the semifinal only to go down 6–3 against subsequent World Champion Anderson. Van Gerwen is available at 1.57 (4/7) to repeat that feature and this could be your safe bet amongst the 2016 World Darts Championship odds. The Dutch player won six out of the nine PDC premier events in 2015, making it his best season ever. He is 2.10 (11/10) to win the tournament, and you should really consider backing him.
Phil Taylor 2016 World Darts Championship odds
The Power is third in the Order of Merit, but ranked as top underdog according to online sportsbooks in the UK. He is looking for his first PDC premier event win since the 2014 Grand Slam of Darts, when he defeated Dave Chisnall 16–13. Taylor, the most decorated darts player ever, won the PDC World Darts Championship a record 14 times, with his last success to date coming in 2013, when he beat Van Gerwen 7–4.
In 2014 the Power, though ranked as world’s No. 1, was powerless against Michael Smith, who eliminated him as early as the second round. Last year he reached the final at Ally Pally, but Anderson took home the £250,000 main prize after a thrilling 7–6 showdown. BetVictor offers the best odds for Taylor both to win the even at 6.00 (5/1) and to reach the final at 2.75 (7/4) too. Though his tournament win would upset a lot of internet betting players, these odds are very tempting… At least you should think about backing him to finish amongst top 2!
Gary Anderson 2016 World Darts Championship odds
Though ranked as only third favourite, the 44-year-old is second according to the Order of Merit, as he won the Premier League Darts this year after finishing as World Champion in January. In the final of the Premier League, he defeated Van Gerwen 11–7, who was able to take revenge on him at the European Championship (11–10). As it was already mentioned above, the Flying Scotsman defeated Taylor 7–6 in last year’s amazing final, despite the Power having a better dart average by three points.
Anderson has 3.40 (12/5) 2016 World Darts Championship odds to reach the final according to BetVictor. He is 7.00 (6/1) to retain his title at the Alexandra Palace, and he would be the first one to do that since 2012, when Adrian Lewis won his second in a row. Lewis is now fourth favourite with online betting odds of 17.00 (16/1) to win his third title. He is 7.00 (6/1) to reach the final.
