This weekend Milton Keynes will host the PDC Masters, with the 16 top darts players taking part in it. Michael van Gerwen is the defending champion, and he is the favorite again in the PDC Masters 2020 betting odds. But freshly crowned world champion, Peter Wright can also go for the title.
The giant Dutch has already won the Masters five times, certainly, he is the record holder. Even though it is a non-ranking PDC tournament, winning the Masters still has importance and of course prize money. TV in the UK and in the Netherlands will broadcast it, but surely fans will watch it live and have a great time just like at the world championship.
Van Gerwen is still favorite according to the PDC Masters 2020 betting odds
Even though he lost in the final of the world championship against Peter Wright 4 weeks ago, van Gerwen is still the favorite to win the Masters. He has odds of 2.00 at Unibet. It is not a surprise, as he is confidently leading the world ranking. Even with a defeat, he is still the player to beat at every competition.
We shall see how much he was affected though by losing in the finals for the second time, from a player he usually beats. But he will have the chance now to take revenge if both of them manage to get to the final. Peter Wright was given the odds of 6.00 by online gambling sites in the UK to win, so still much less chance than the Dutch.
But Snakebite must be full of energy and power after winning his first world championship, which he truly deserved. Besides the fame and cash he has won, he also moved up on the world ranking to the second place, which means easier opponents at the beginning. He will start against Joe Cullen, who is a young talent but Wright should get through him easily. Last year the Scot reached the semi-final, where he lost against James Wade, this year we might see him in the final.
Other favorites to win
Online sportsbooks in the UK are also mentioning Gerwyn Price in the favorites with the odds of 6.50 to win. The Welsh who is currently third in the world ranking is not a popular person and liked by many after his latest behavior at the world championship. He lost in the semi-final in London against Peter Wright, even though he tried everything to make him lose. From the pre-match comments to his arrogant attitude during the game, without any success. So it will be interesting to see how the fans will treat him now, and how he will handle it.
One of the biggest surprises at the world championship was the performance of Nathan Aspinall, who reached the semi-final after defeating former champion, Gary Anderson. He will make his debut at this event, and his fans can hope for a similar performance. But it won’t be easy as he is starting against James Wade, who was in last year’s final. If you think, the young Brit can go until the end, his odds are 19.00 at Unibet.
