After the thrilling matches of the World Cup of Darts last weekend, fans can watch some of the best players in the Nordic Masters this weekend. The inaugural edition of the event is held in Copenhagen on the 17-18 September. With 8 PDC players taking part in it including Price, Wright and van Gerwen who are the top favorites in the PDC Nordic Masters predictions.
A new event, the Nordic Darts Masters, will make its debut in the PDC calendar this season after the postponement of last year’s tournament. 16 players will compete for the trophy and the £20,000 prize money including 8 PDC players and 8 regional qualifiers. We can find in the invited competitors the best players from Price to MVG. But the first women match winner in a PDC World Championships, Fallon Sherrock will also be there. Local fans can also support three Danish players beside Latvian, Lithuanian, Swedish and Finnish participants. The new tournament offers a great opportunity for players of the region to play against the very best, who are likely to feature in the final on Saturday night.
PDC Nordic Masters Predictions Favor The Usual Trio
The reigning PDC world champion and the leader of the world rankings, Gerwyn Price is the top favorite to win the first Nordic Masters event. Online sportsbooks in Denmark offer the smallest odds, 3.00 for his victory. Price has been in great form all season and was playing well last weekend in the World Cup of Darts along with Johnny Clayton. They reached the semi-final but lost there against the future winner Scottish team. Now Price can aim for another victory in this new tournament. Where he will start against the Swedish number one, Daniel Larsson.
Peter Wright will arrive in Copenhagen as the fresh winner of the World Cup of Darts after their brilliant victory with his teammate, John Henderson in Jena. Wright is currently in second place in the world rankings after also winning the 2021 World Matchplay. Snakebite will face Finnish Marko Kantele in the first round and can meet Johnny Clayton next. His odds to win the event are 4.00 in the PDC Nordic Masters predictions. While three-time world champion Michael van Gerwen will try to win his first tournament this season. The Dutch star was close to winning a couple of times, but failed in the last moments. His odds to break this spell now are 5.50.
Other PDC Players in The Field
We can also find Jonny Clayton, the winner of this year’s Masters and Premier League in the field. The Welsh player took part in last weekend’s tournament along Price but they couldn’t defend their title this time. He is still mentioned in the favorites now with the odds of 10.00 to get the win. One of the most loved players by the fans, Scottish Gary Anderson will also take part in the tournament. He reached the final of this year’s world championship but hasn’t achieved such results since. His odds to finish on top in Denmark are 13.00.
The world No10 Nathan Aspinall can have the most difficult job in the first round against Latvian Madars Razma. Online gambling sites in Denmark still favor the English player to win with the odds of 1.30. But he has to be careful against Razma, who got to the fifth round in this year’s UK Open. The tightest game is expected between Fallon Sharrock and Danish Niels Heinsoe who will be supported by the local fans. But surely many people will hope for a great result from Sharrock. Who got the best result as a female player in the PDC World Championship after getting to the last 32 in 2020. Now her odds to win the game are 1.44 on bet365.
