2016 PDC World Darts Betting Tips PT 1- By A.J. Ryder on December 16, 2016 19:24 GMT
The darts is always one of the biggest highlights of the holiday season and the massive PDC event always reigns as the most widely-anticipated meeting of the entire calendar. With a veritable slew of high quality matches all unfolding over the next couple of days as we pursue the penultimate tungsten battle for the final of the PDC World Darts Championship.
One of the best parts about this massive tournament is the fact that the bookmakers always haul out some of the most impressive betting promotions and money back specials you'll find for the entire year as this tournament unfolds. Expect things to get really interesting as we get closer to the knock out stages of the action.
It probably doesn't come as any major surprise as Michael Van Gerwen comes into the PDC World Darts Championship as the odds-on favourite to secure the victory against the best the darts world has to offer.
You'll find the Dutchman available as high as a 3/4 price tag right now at the time of this writing and that has drifted down as the action has gotten underway as nobody has produced a genuinely stand out performance that looks capable of matching him for consistency and accuracy. The vast majority of bookmakers have been listing Van Gerwen at a price of about 8/11 and that's going to plummet once he picks off his next victory – particularly if the Dutchman is able to get the win in particularly dramatic fashion.
The value really isn't going to come on him in the match betting until the final and, even then, you're not going to be looking at a particularly great price in the grand scheme of things so if you are looking to back him then you're better off doing it now than later.
