World Series of Darts betting is available on Unibet’s award-winning sportsbook and we’ve got all the best odds for one of the biggest tournaments on the darts calendar.
The World Series of Darts Finals brings together the PDC’s very top players from across the globe for a spectacular three-day event in Glasgow.
Darts betting fans of course have one eye on Michael van Gerwen, who is the clear favourite to win this tournament and scoop the €56,000 winning prize.
But there are some dark horses in Scotland this weekend and Van Gerwen is certainly not guaranteed a place in Saturday’s final.
Bet on Michael van Gerwen
Of course, Van Gerwen is the favourite at 9/20 to win the World Series of Darts Finals. The Dutchman won the Unibet European Championship with victory over England’s Rob Cross in the final. It was a routine weekend for Van Gerwen in Hasselt. He averaged over 100 in three of his five matches and his only scare was the 11-10 semi-final victory over Australia’s Kyle Anderson.
Van Gerwen is second seed for the World Series of Darts Finals and could face Kyle Anderson as early as the quarter-finals. That may be a little unnerving for some darts betting fans who watched their epic battle on the oche last week. If that’s the case then it’s maybe worth backing Anderson to win this tournament at 50/1. His price will plummet if he beats Van Gerwen and you could then lay it off with other bets. It’s worth a stab.
Bet on the World Series of Darts Finals
Gary Anderson is the top seed for the World Series of Darts Finals even though he is not the favourite to win the competition. The Scot is 9/2 to claim the title, which would be his first since the Perth Masters in August. Anderson has taken some time off recently but did reach the Unibet Champions League of Darts final in September… where he lost to Austria’s Mensur Suljovic. Anderson’s form is unknown and he is perhaps best avoided here. He’s aiming to peak at the World Championships in December, so a defeat here is not a disaster for the two-time world title holder.
Other players worth considering to do well at the World Series of Darts Finals are the aforementioned Suljovic and burgeoning Aussie whizkid Corey Cadby. Suljovic won the Champions League of Darts and has impressed on the European Tour this season. He stayed away from the World Series of Darts to focus on European events and it’s paid off, with his qualifying via the PDC Order of Merit. Suljovic is a slow, considered player and that could put him in good stead over these long-form matches, where it’s Best of 11 in the first and second rounds, 19 in the quarters and 21 in the semis and final. He is 18/1 to win the darts.
Cadby, meanwhile, continues to pull up trees on his rise through the PDC jungle. He lost the Auckland Masters final to Kyle Anderson 11-10 back in August and also competed at the Melbourne and Perth Masters events. A regular on the Australian circuit, Cadby is only now starting to eat his way into the European tournaments and should be seen as an outsider for the World Championship. For now, progress to the quarters or semi-finals would be a major step for the 22-year-old but he certainly has the talent to do it and is priced at 33/1 to win the tournament
