PDC World Darts Championship 2017 Betting Tips and Preview
The darts crazy season is upon us with the Winmau World Masters in full swing that will soon be replaced by the enormous hype and darts fest that is the PDC World Championships 2017 that starts on December the 15th 2017 where Daryl Gurney takes on Jermaine Wattimena.So what better way to look forward than to see if any of the top 72 PDC darts players on the planet stands even a remote chance of taking the title off the world’s best ever dart player on the planet Michael Van Gerwen (MvG).The PDC World Championships has introduced 16 Preliminary players to increase the International flavour of the event and allow for players to go through qualification, whatever your thoughts on this any attempt to grow the game overseas is worth it in our book.In these qualifiers there are a few rough cut gems that could turn into polished diamonds with wins in their first games, and more importantly causing a handful for the qualified players that wait in the first round proper.Corey Cadby from Australia faces Sun Quiang in his preliminary game, and having averaged 109 whilst losing to Peter Wright he should breeze into the official round one and then cause havoc for Joe Cullen, who has struggled to let his real star quality show this year.Cadby is listed with the Bookies at 200/1 for the title, which may sound long odds but when you compare it to the odds for players who have been firm fixtures in the top 16 and top 32 it shows how much class the bookies think this boy has. By example Mervyn King sits at 300/1 with Robert Thornton at 200/1 whilst Joe Cullen who he may face in round one is at 300/1.Dragutin Horvath is another inform Preliminary Round player that should win his first game against Boris Koltsov, setting him up a juicy clash with Simon Whitlock, and whilst averaging above 95 in his last televised Euro event could cause the re-emerging Wizard a few problems.In the other half of the draw away from MvG lies the ever consistent Peter Wright, Gary Anderson and James Wade who owing to his style love set play as you can have a few bad legs and still nick a set, but if the form goes according to plan it will be Peter Wright who faces Gary Anderson in a huge Semi Final battle. No betting review on darts can be complete without looking at the evergreen Phil Taylors chances of defying age, shape and his current track record in 2016. Phil has a fairly straight forward start until the quarter where he could potentially face Adrian Lewis. However, Adie’s form has been patchy at best this year but as a Twice World Champion he will arrive at the Palace knowing unlike several players, that he has nothing to prove in. The winner of that quarter will no doubt face MvG and that’s where either Adrian or Phil Taylors event could end.So with all the value sown up on bets for the title you could look to some match bet accumulators from non-seeded players who are in better form than their counterparts with Darren Webster, Kevin Painter, Andrew Gilding, Chris Dobey, Christian Kist, Mick McGowan, Devon Petersen, Ricky Evans, Johnny Clayton and Steve West all having a more than decent chance to progress into Round 2 and even Chris Dobey should start as just favourite against the purposeful Justin Pipe.So whoever and whatever you fancy a flutter on remember to do it responsibly.
