There are going to be plenty of sporting events in play next weekend, however one that I am more than confident that many of you out there will be very eager to bet on will be the 2019 Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals.
It is of course a major darts tournament and one that has been in the making all years, and there are some 64 players that will be battling it out in the hope of bagging the biggest share of the huge prize pool up for grabs on that tournament.
As for just which player is expected to win that tournament, well you only have to take a look at the early betting markets that many bookies have made live on this event to realise the player that does have the very best chance of winning is Michael Van Gerwen 5/4
However, it you are not that impressed with the size and value of those odds, you can of course place an each-way bet on any player and most bookies are paying out to two places at one half of the win odds, or read on to discover the individual matches that I have picked out for day one of that event as the ones that should bear fruits from a betting point of view.
Best Day One Betting Opportunities
You are going to find plenty of day one individual match betting opportunities on this darts tournament, and when it comes to the very first match that will be kicking off this tournament that being the Dimitri van den Bergh v Stephen Bunting match it is the former named player that should in it.
Also consider backing Darius Labanauskas for he should beat Harry Ward in their first match of the tournament and his odds of doing so are around the 1/2 mark in the Jose De Sousa v James Richardson it is hard to see any further that De Sousa who is the 2/5 favourite to win that match.
More Players Worth Backing
I have also picked out five other matches that are worth betting on, and keep in mind that all bookies will allow you to perm together any number of matches in this tournament and pick out the winner and have them included in an accumulator.
The first match that should see Glen Durrant winning at odds of around 2/5 is his match against Scott Baker, and there is a lot to like about the 4/5 odds being offered on John Henderson to beat Ryan Joyce.
Max Hopp looks good and ready to win at odds of 4/5 in his match against Jelle Klaasen and one banker bet is Dave Chisnall at odds of just 1/5 to beat Matthew Edgar, one other player that shouldn’t face an uphill task of winning his day one match is Ian White and if you do rate his chances you can back him at odds of around 2/5 to come out on top and beat Devon Petersen.
