Who wins PDC World Darts Championship 2019?
Darts is split into two divisions with the elite players involved with the PDC board and those who are bubbling under plying their trade with the BDO. Promotions can be a little rare for darts events but if you look at the really big tournaments such as the World Championships in January and the Premier League which begins during the following month, you should find a tempting selection.
Overall, promotions from UK bookmakers can focus more on football and horse racing but if you look hard enough, there are darts deals to be had. This is less popular but can give us a little extra value at times so side markets are worth following.
Firstly you need to think about what side bets you could actually place on a darts match or tournament. For match betting you can take a punt on which player will score the most s and this is where some bookies such as SportingBet and Winner are absent from the main odds comparison sites. However, there is still a huge choice with William Hill, Ladbrokes, Betway, Paddy Power, bet and more all getting involved.
The same principle applies to live darts betting and as you would expect , bet are among the better options here. This bookmaker is the king of betting in play with more markets on offer than other bookies and the sport of darts is no exception. But once again, live betting is carried by other operators and will still be quoted when it comes to the larger, televised events.
William Hill, Coral, Betway and more will all have betting in play options so unless you want every single darts match covered, there is no reason to switch your allegiance. When it comes to tournament betting, there is a huge choice in terms of side markets and the ongoing Premier League is a good example of this.
This will be the sixth staging of the evening by the PDC and heading back to the tournament as the reigning champion is Michael Van Gerwen. The tournament starts on January 26th and finishes on the 28th.
Michael van Gerwen won the title last year after holding off Gary Anderson in the Final. That was his third Masters title on the bounce so it is little surprise that he will be going to Milton Keynes as the favourite this year as well. The draw is based on seeding, so the number one seed plays the sixteen seed, second seed plays the fifteenth seed and so on. That is the heavyweight showdown if it happens and if it does, then the winner of that game will be expected to go through all the way and land the title.
Of the rest of the players in the top half of the draw, James Wade is the only one who has been to the final of the Masters before, beating Mervyn King in the edition. Anderson reached the quarter finals of the recent World Championship, where he was stopped by Phil Taylor while Van Gerwen was surprisingly halted in the tournament in the semi-finals when Rob Cross took him down in a deciding set.
He is down in the bottom half of the draw and should be looking at the draw ahead of him with some excitement. He could have a tricky battle against Mensur Suljovic in the quarter finals and the highest ranked player he could meet at the semi-final stage would be Peter Wright who struggled at the World Championships after a health problem.
The draw should put Cross into contention here really. Just because of the draw really it should be either Anderson or Van Gerwen who go all the way to the title. You would expect one of them to make it through the top half of the draw really. From the bottom, Rob Cross looks the best option to get the closest to making it to the final given hesitations about the others.
