Many betting sites are currently running scared of Michael Van Gerwen, for he has cost them a fortune recently with his unique skills and abilities playing Darts, and due to his remarkable form many bookies have him on offer at odds-on to win the upcoming PDC World Championship.
However, one betting site that is prepared to lay all punters bets on him is BetFred, so much so they have him on offer at some massively overpriced win odds currently of 11/8. So if you fancy his chances of winning that major darts tournament do not hang around for too long for those odds won’t be around for very much longer, I can guarantee you of that!
The only other darts player that could possibly beat him in the PDC World Championship darts tournament is Gary Anderson, and he is the current second favourite at some tempting odds of 10/3 at BetFred, but whether he will beat Van Gerwen does remain to be seen.
The odds on all other players taking part in that tournament are in double or triple figures, and as such if you do fancy taking your chances on some of the other less fancied players then there are plenty of them to pick and choose from and some massive odds waiting for you too.
One half of the win odds are on offer if you bet each-way on any of the players taking part in the PDC World Championship later this month, and BetFred are paying out to two places on such bets, so as long as your chosen player manages to make it through to the very final game of that tournament your place part of an each-way bet will be a winner, whether your chosen players wins that match or not.
As for the two other players that have a good chance of chasing in if one of those or even both of those first and second favourites fail to play up to their current form are Peter Wright who is 11/1 and Michael Smith who is 14/1.
Whilst all of the other darts playing taking part in this tournament do of course have a chance of winning, their respective chances of doing so are tiny, and you will be best off keeping your stakes to some reasonable amounts if you do fancy backing any of them, for there is a good chance they will not get through to the final match.
The next two players in the betting are both 22/1 shots and they are Mensur Suljovic and Rob Cross, the odds then jump in size to 33/1 on players such as Daryl Gurney and Gerwyn Price, and as for the chances of players like James Wade and Dimitri van den Bergh, they are 40/1 and 50/1 shots respectively.
With odds of 66/1 right up to 500/1 on the rest of the field there are plenty of additional but much riskier betting opportunities available to you at the BetFred betting site if you are prepared to make use of them!
