The 2014 PDC Darts Championship gets under way on Friday, with Phil Taylor the odds-on favourite to defend his title. Coral are offering a free bet up to £50 on this event. The most likely man to take the crown away according to the bookies is Michael Van Gerwen, at best odds 4/1 exclusively at Sportingbet. Many punters will see this as a great bet given that Van Gerwen got the better of Taylor at Players Championship final at the start of the month, as well as in the final of the Premier League earlier in the year.
2014 PDC Odds and Betting Tips
If you look beyond the two market leaders there are a number of top players available to back at great odds, starting with Adrian Lewis who won the tournament in both 2011 and 2012. At best odds of 6/1 it’s easy to see why Lewis will be a very popular bet. Other players who will be of interest to the betting public include James Wade and Simon Whitlock, both available of odds of 33/1 with Stan James.
Other Darts betting options
Another popular bet at the World Championships is the most 180’s of the tournament. Only a couple of bookmakers are offering odds on this market, but it’s definitely worth a bet and we think Michael Van Gerwen justifies being favourite at odds of 2/1 with Betfred.
