None of us should forget what Christmas is really all about. But, in the season of goodwill to all men, forget trees and turkeys and fighting over the last bunch of flowers at the filling station. Tickets for the PDC World Championship at Alexandra Palace are already like gold dust and the countdown is firmly under way for this now traditionally festive event. It’s the European Championship in Mulheim at the end of this week and all the big names will be in attendance.
World champion Michael van Gerwen is the number one seed and favourite (a best 5/2 with sportingbet). The world’s top 16-ranked players are joined by another 16 who have qualified through various events on the Pro Tour and the lesser European Tour. But van Gerwen doesn’t have a great record in the tournament. He was beaten in the semi-finals by eventual winner Adrian Lewis last year having been beaten in the second round by Raymond van Barneveld in 2012. ‘Jackpot’ is a general 12/1 to retain his crown while ‘Barney’ is available at 28/1 in several places. Of course, if you don’t follow van Gerwen the default selection is Phil Taylor (3/1 general). ‘The Power’ won the European Championship every year between 2008 and 2011 but he hasn’t gone beyond the quarter-finals in the last two years and all of that travelling, promoting his new book, must be taking its toll – he looked physically and mentally shattered last time out in Dublin.
I like the look of James Wade at the general 12/1. He was in red-hot form in the World Grand Prix in Dublin and made van Gerwen fight all the way. He probably has Lewis to beat in the bottom half of the draw but you never know what you are going to get with the latter. Gary Anderson hit 25 maximums in Dublin en route to the semi-finals and has already won six times in 2014. He’s reached the last four in the World Matchplay and Premier League as well so is having a good season so the general 14/1 looks fair. Simon Whitlock is 25/1 with bwin, Unibet and 888sport and that’s also a bit of value. He won the European Championship in 2012 at the RWE Sporthalle, though it was a sub-standard tournament that year scoring-wise.

The Reebok Stadium in Bolton is the setting for the 2013 edition of the UK Open Darts betting. This is the eleventh edition of the tournament, which will be stepping up to the oche at beginning of June, bringing some more high quality darts betting your way.
This is something just a little bit different for your darts wagers though as this is the FA Cup of darts. Just a straight, round by round knockout with no second chances and the beauty of it is that the big guns could be drawn against each other at any stage of the competition. There is no big seeding avoidance for the players here, it is all down to the luck of the draw. So this invites the chances for some big upsets in giant killing acts in the big tournament which provides fast and furious darts betting action.
2013 UK Open Darts Betting Odds at online bookmaker Paddy Power
Michael van Gerwen 2/1, Phil Taylor 3/1, Raymond van Barneveld 11/1, Simon Whitlock 14/1, James Wade 16/1, Adrian Lewis 16/1 Gary Anderson 25/1, Robert Thornton 25/1
Naturally, despite the huge field all vying for glory the big names will take the lion’s share of the market action. It all starts with Michael van Gerwen, who has been lined up as the ante post favourite for 2013 UK Open of Darts betting. This is on the back of the Dutchman’s performance in Premier League, where he beat Phil Taylor in the final. That was a good response from the quick fire, heavy hitting Van Gerwen after losing in the final of the World Championships at the turn of the year to The Power.
Van Gerwen is definitely the rising power in the game and Phil Taylor is already seeing his usual supremacy and favouritism in tournament betting slipping to the Dutchman. Van Gerwen is going off as 2/1 favourite with online bookmaker Paddy Power for darts betting in this one. Helped along by winning the Dubai Masters title at the end of May.
But Phil Taylor isn’t that far behind at 3/1 in the 2013 UK Open of Darts betting. Taylor at least recovered from some stumbles through the regular season of the Premier League of Darts 2013 edition to make it through to the finals. He did suffer some uncharacteristic lapses during the season though, but in the end it showed that he still can’t be counted out.
He did of course land the 2013 World Championships as well and almost the rest of the field will want to avoid him. But it is getting to the point where you don’t know which Taylor is going to turn up. He’s not infallible any more and he was beating by Andy Hamilton in the quarter of the Dubai Masters recently. Taylor has history at the UK Open, winning four of the previous ten editions, the last time coming back in 2010. He reached the final of last year’s event, where he lost to Scotland’s Robert Thornton, who may not make a bad outside shot himself.
Robert Thornton, by and large, was pretty solid and impressive during his debut Premier League season. He just missed out on finals night for the 2013 Premier League, but scored some big wins along the way. He is the defending champion at the UK Open and that should carry some confidence forward as well. Still, he is well out at odds of 25/1 to double up on his success, something that only Phil Taylor has ever done before at the event.
He could be around the same sort of offering in value as England’s James Wade in 2013 UK Open Darts betting. Wade has won the event twice in his career (the most recent victory coming in 2011) and he recorded some big wins in the Premier League, at least over the first half of the season. He ran out of steam when it mattered most but he made the semi’s and followed it up with a semi run in Dubai. He is playing some good darts, just a question over his consistency.
But the real value at the event behind Taylor and Van Gerwen should be Raymond van Barneveld. He was one of the top players through the Premier League darts season, falling in the semi finals to old foe Phil Taylor. But the big Dutchman hit back hard with a run to the final of the Dubai Masters where he was gunned down by Van Gerwen in a thrilling final. Has been scoring heavy and finishing accurately all season. Shouldn’t be too far away from a title.

In professional darts, sometimes one tournament can simply blend into another but the 32 players lining up for next week’s PartyPoker.com World Grand Prix at the Citywest Hotel in Dublin have something a little different to contend with. The World Grand Prix is the only mainstream tournament that requires every leg to start, and end, with a double which just gives a bit of an edge to the battle for the £100,000 first prize.
The top 16 players from the PDC Order of Merit are in action, along with the top 14 non-qualified players from the ProTour Order of Merit and the leading two non-qualified players from Ireland & Northern Ireland from the ProTour Order of Merit.
Last year’s losing finalist Brendan Dolan (100/1 to go one better this time with Boylesports, bwin and Ladbrokes), who recorded the first-ever double-start nine-darter 12 months ago, will be lining up again along with fellow Northern Irishman Michael Mansell, while Limerick’s William O’Connor will get plenty of support from the Dublin public but is the outsider of the entire field at Ladbrokes’ 250/1. Michael Smith is among a number making their World Grand Prix debuts next week but the St Helens youngster, who won his second senior ranking event in Benidorm earlier this year, couldn’t have asked for tougher start. He’ll be playing defending champion and Ladbrokes’ 2/1 favourite Phil Taylor in the first round. Smith is 125/1 with Boylesports to be outright winner in Dublin. Taylor was claiming his 1oth double-start title last year when beating Brendan Dolan but will need to be at the top of his game again with 2007 and 2010 winner James Wade (14/1 with Bodog, Boylesports and bwin) expected to be a threat again and 2004 champion Colin Lloyd could be overpriced at the general 66/1. Lloyd should get through his first-round match with Michael van Gerwen but is then likely to face current world champion Adrian Lewis (a general 8/1) He starts off against Welshman Ritchie Burnett, a semi-finalist in 2011 but a general 80/1 this year.

The 19th World Darts Matchplay gets under-way at the Blackpool Winter Gardens on July 21st, kicking off a competitive week of darts betting action. Phil “The Power” Taylor has dominated this tournament, winning fourteen of the eighteen times that it has been held. Taylor is back again this year at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, and is looking to earn his fifth consecutive World Matchplay Darts title.
It has been a phenomenal career for Taylor at this event, and online bookmaker BetFred is offering a Money Back Special surrounding Taylor, for 2012 World Matchplay Darts betting. Taylor is such an overwhelming favourite to win the tournament outright, that second favourite is James Wade, who is way back out at 10/1, compared to Phil Taylor who is in at 13/8. Huge discrepancies there for your darts betting!
However, if Phil Taylor loses in the final of the World Matchplay Darts this season, then BetFred will refund all losing Tournament outright singles. So a fantastic offer worth snapping up there, if you are looking at anyone other than Taylor to do the job. It is James Wade who has the best tournament history behind Taylor at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, so he does represent a decent, value outside bet (and let’s face it, all bets beyond Phil Taylor are outside shots).
Double World Champion Adrian Lewis is trading at around 12/1, along with the dangerous floater Simon Whitlock. The draw for the 2012 World Matchplay darts tournament has been very kind to Phil Taylor and he should get a pretty straight forward run to the final. Can anyone stop him? Taylor is priced at 13/8 vs The Field at 4/7 at online bookmaker BetFred, that’s how strong of a favourite “The Power” is.
Online bookmaker BetFred offer a free £50 bet for new customers registering an account with them. The highly rated bookie will match the value of your first bet on a new account between £5 and £50 with a free bet. This is a generous welcome bonus offer from BetFred, and a great way to get started with all of your sports betting.

2012 World Match Play Darts Betting Info
The 2012 World Match Play darts betting will get under-way on July 21st, with the biggest names in the sport coming together for one of the great darts events. This is held at the Blackpool Winter Gardens, and this will be the 19th edition of the popular event, organised by the PDC. The top 16 in the PDC along with sixteen ProTour qualifiers will be in Blackpool for the big event, and each of the 16 seeds will start off a first round match against one of the qualifiers. This is a straight legs knockout format, but the difference here is that in order for a player to progress, they must win by two clear legs. There will be no deciding legs, and if the match is resting at 9-9, they keep playing on until someone goes two legs clear, just like a final set decider in tennis would. The action starts on July 21st, and the final will be played on the 29th.
2012 World Match Play Darts Betting Favourite and Defending Champion
Little surprise about the man who is defending champion here. This is one of the tournaments which Phil Taylor has made his own, and The Power goes as defending champion and favourite. Phil Taylor has won 12 of the 18 editions so far, including the last four in a row. So he is going to be the one to beat. He is still looking for a really big win this season though, with only the Premier League and the World Cup of Darts of note this season so far. He enjoys his time at the Blackpool Winter Gardens and is such a strong bet. Looking at the draw ahead, he should have easy passage to the final if he is on top of his game. In his quarter there is possibly only Andy Hamilton to be concerned with, while in his half of the draw, the next highest seed is Scotland’s Gary Anderson who hasn’t been in top form. So seeing Phil Taylor in full flight in the 2012 World Match Play darts is likely to happen. This is a quick paced race to the following rounds, and that is where Taylor excels, just like in the Premier League format. Taylor’s last six titles in this event have all been won with a three dart average of over 100. Taylor is trading as favourite at 13/8 with online bookmaker BetFred.
Double world champion Adrian Lewis should naturally be a big contender here. He is perhaps, the best player in the field in terms of turning up and producing rapid, heavy fire. His inconsistency still is a bit of a problem at times, but his talent is top notch. He goes as the second seed, but is in the bottom half of the draw which is packed with potential finalists, so his job is going to be harder than Taylor’s in reaching the final. Still, in with a pretty even shot at the final and therefore a decent shot.
So too is England’s James Wade. He has been the nearly man of the World Match Play darts over the event years, reaching four of the last six finals, but managing just one win. That came in 2007 when he beat Terry Jenkins in the final. In his other three finals he has gone up against Phil Taylor, including last year, when he really has not had a look in at all. Had a surprisingly decent Premier League season, an event in which he generally falls a little bit flat, but he has a strong enough track record in this event to make a nuisance of himself. A tricky quarter though with Simon Whitlock and Kevin Painter floating around.
Simon Whitlock, aka The Wizard could be a decent proposition at the Blackpool Winter Gardens. Whitlock looked pretty handy and consistent through the Premier League season and is good enough to make a quarter final appearance, where he would likely run into James Wade. So not a bad option on him, and he did make the semi final in 2010. The darts world is just waiting for him to step up and take a PDC Premier event like this. Even though he is in decent form, he is still one of the chasing pack really behind the other contenders.
Raymond van Barneveld, who has taken a European Tour title this season, could be a dangerous floater in the bottom half of the draw. He is though in the same quarter as Adrian Lewis and you would back the Englishman there really. Wes Newton also is trading well, and could be the biggest benefactor in the top half of the draw, should Phil Taylor slip up along the way to the semi finals.
Best Outside Bet
Well, it has to be Gary Anderson here. He never found his footing the Premier League really, and wasn’t helped with the death of his father disrupting things. He just hasn’t been at his all powerful best in 2012 at all, but did fire off a nine dart finish in June at the UK Open. However, he lost in the fourth round there, not really looking as if he would take the title. However, he is a class act when he pulls it all together and a heavy scorer. Is his form and confidence there? No, that is why he is an outside bet at 16/1 with online bookmaker BetFred.

The semi finals of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting season are set, as we head towards Finals Night at the O2 Arena in London on May 17th. The top four players from the regular Premier League season booked their places in the final, and now it is a straight knock-out to lift the title. Just two matches stand between one of the four and some glory. Of course Phil Taylor is there, after winning the league, but there are some surprise names alongside him ready to contest. One of the ones not making it, is defending champion Gary Anderson. Nor is double world champion Adrian Lewis. The bookies have little doubt as to who they think is going to win the title outright, it is of course, The Power, who lost only one match during the regular season. But he only lost once last season too, and then lost in the semi finals against Adrian Lewis. So we could still be in for some drama.
Phil Taylor v James Wade
This is first versus fourth from the final standings, and yet Taylor finishing a massive eleven points ahead of fellow countryman Wade. Taylor picked up two wins over Wade this season, with an 8-2 win on March 22nd, and then a recent 8-1 demolition job on May 3rd. So Taylor is firm favourite here, because Wade has really struggled throughout his career to make any kind of indent on Taylor. The Power was scoring phenomenally throughout the regular season of the 2012 Premier League Darts betting finishing with a three darts average of 107.95 compared to Wade’s 95.82 for the season. So it really should be Taylor all the way and hard to go against him. Taylor was the only player to finish in the positive for Leg Difference on the season, and the only one to finish with a three figure 3-dart average. He is the one to beat. Taylor beat both Whitlock and Hamilton twice this season. Wade, who won the 2009 Premier League Darts title, won just one of his last six matches this season, but it was his strong middle part of the season which carried him through.
Taylor 2/9, Wade 7/2 at Bet Victor
Simon Whitlock v Andy Hamilton
The Aussie Wizard has been a solid performer all season and won 50% of his games, so you can’t argue with that. There has always been a nearly-man kind of feel about Whitlock, but he has put together some good consistency this season, to a lot of people’s surprise He isn’t a bad player, obviously, but always seemed to lack a bit of cutting edge against the top guns. He will be happy with his semi final draw, simply because by finishing second, he avoided Taylor in the semi’s. Andy Hamilton is a surprise name in the final four, because he looked to be down and out for most of the season. He scrapped brilliantly though and put together a strong run of form to end the season with, and forced his way into third place from nowhere. Hamilton went unbeaten in his last five and one of those matches was a massively important 8-4 win over Whitlock a couple of weeks ago. The two drew earlier in the season, so this should be a close match. Would edge Hamilton, just because he has been scrapping so well.

28th December 2011 / Lee A Jackson - Category:
Well James Wade and Gary Anderson are now the front runners in 2012 PDC Darts World Championship betting, after we saw the shock exit of Phil The Power Taylor. Taylor bombed badly in just the second round of the major event, losing 4-1 to Dave Chisnall, even though Taylor had the higher three dart average for the match. Chisnall just had the finishing power going on and it was a major scalp for him as the top half of the draw was blow wide open at the Alexander Palace in London. The expected semi final clash in the top half of the draw was between Phil Taylor and last year’s losing finalist, Gary Anderson. But now the Scot has a clear run at making it to the final again. Anderson has a tight scrap in his first round match, and didn’t have things all his own way in the second against South Africa’s Devon Peterson. But he is getting the job done at the moment, and now with Phil Taylor out of the way, he should be even more motivated than ever. Anderson lost in last year’s final against Adrian Lewis, but the Scot has been one of the most consistent and strongest players during 2011 and is now hotly tipped to take his first ever PDC Darts World Championship title.
England’s James Wade is pushing him hard though in the PDC Darts World Championship betting, and remains our tip to take the title. Wade has looked pretty solid so far, although he hasn’t been scoring too highly, he has been efficient and effective. There have been question marks over his form this season, but is looking in good enough shape to make a serious run here. His second round demolition job over Jelle Klaasen was a nice confidence builder for him. He will know that he can’t face Phil Taylor in the final now, but he is in the bottom half of the draw (which was tougher than the top) and the defending champion Adrian Lewis is still hanging around in there. So that is the likely semi final clash up in the bottom half of the draw at the moment. Lewis almost crashed in the first round, staring defeat in the face but survived that just about. He played much better in the second round, but with his inconsistency you always wonder and that is what makes Anderson and Wade the stronger darts bets here.
Australia’s Simon Whitlock is also playing very well at the moment, being the tournament’s top three dart average scorer. The Wizard is likely to come up against Gary Anderson in the quarter finals of the top half of the draw, but the winner of that outcome is likely to push on to the final, so Whitlock, who seems to always be a nearly man, maybe just worth keeping an eye on as an outside bet in your 2012 PDC Darts World Championship betting.

The second round of the 2012 PDC Darts World Championship will fire underway on December 22nd, with the big guns still in the hunt. Defending Champion Adrian Lewis had a narrow escape in his first round match, squeezing past Nigel Heydon 3-2 in the defence of his title. It wasn’t very impressive stuff, and whether nerves as defending champion, combined with his penchant for inconsistency will plague him during this run remains to be seen. It wasn’t a convincing kick off from him to say the least. Phil The Power Taylor had no such problems though, breezing past qualifier Haruki Muramatsu in straight sets to book his place in the second round. Strong contender, Scotland’s Gary Anderson starts his run at the final on Tuesday with a match against Jyhan Artut. Anderson was last year’s losing finalist against Lewis, and has to be hungry to get back there and get his hands on the title. The biggest upset of the competition so far was England’s James Richardson crushing Raymond van Barneveld 3-0 in the first round. The big Dutchman was all full of talk, saying how he was getting back into his top form and was ready to gun for Phil Taylor in the draw. Well, that’s all over with, and is one challenger down for Phil Taylor.
The second round of the 2012 PDC Darts World Championship betting runs from December 22nd to the 28th, and it is that man Phil Taylor who is still commanding everything and is still the man to beat. He is the man that the bookies fear the most as well, and why he remains so short as outright favourite. Really can’t see anything stopping Taylor on a run at the title here at the moment, and really should be a certain for a quarter final place at the very least, and then we’ll take our darts betting from there.
With so many matches still to come from the Ally Pally in London for the 2012 PDC Darts World Championship betting, online bookmaker Ladbrokes are offering some pretty good coverage on your match betting for the event, the final of which is on January 2nd, 2012.
