2013 PDC World Darts Championship Betting Tips

The biggest darts tournament of the year is finally upon us and the earlier round of fixtures at the PDC World Darts Championship spawned more than a few interesting match-ups with Phil Taylor being pushed all the way by a Kiwi that many people had never heard of before. Anxious moments aside, there are still plenty of quality matches still to be played out on Saturday with several big names looking very likely to progress, with a few others looking significantly more wide open. 


Unsurprisingly, Phil “The Power” Taylor is the betting favourite at the moment in the outright market with his listing being trimmed slightly from 10/11 down to a 4/5 margin. That puts him a healthy distance ahead of Michael Van Gerwin, but it’s important to remember that Taylor came very close to being pushed all the way by his opening round opponent and it might be a few matches before he actually winds up against quality opposition. 

The question remains whether Taylor can be trusted to put 110% into the whole tournament after nearly losing right in round 1 when backed down to 1/100 in the match betting.

Van Gerwin is trading at a 3/1 price tag and he’s definitely one of the main candidates to meet up with Taylor in the final - it really does seem to be all about The Power at the moment. Adrian Lewis is available at an 11/2 price tag and that’s not a bad wager if you’re looking to maybe take it each-way as you would likely still come up with a profit if Lewis made it to the final. 

Following that, James Wade and Simon Whitlock are some distance away, odds-wise, with 25/1 listings. Raymond Van Barneveld - who always used to be the second favourite for big tournaments like this a few years ago will find himself at 33s - ranking as the sixth most likely winner. 

You can back Taylor at 4/5 against the Field at 10/11 - and that’s not a bad wager but you’d be mathematically better off backing Lewis and Van Gerwin.
