Darts PDC World Championships Betting Guide

The PDC World Darts Championship is a world championship competition for the sport of darts, organized by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC). It was introduced following a dispute in 1994 with the British Darts Organization, which has run its own world championship since 1978. The biggest of the PDC tournaments, it traditionally begins in late December, finishing in early January just as the BDO`s version gets underway.

The tournament is currently sponsored by Ladbrokes.com and is now staged at the Alexandra Palace in London after being held the Circus Tavern in Purfleet for its first 14 years.

Only 4 players have won this championship: Dennis Priestley, Phil Taylor, John Part and Raymond van Barneveld. Of these, only Taylor and Part have won it more than once. Taylor has dominated the tournament, winning 13 titles and reaching 16 of the first 17 finals.

2011-2012 PLAYERS

PLAYER ODDS BOOKIE TIPS
GARY ANDERSON 4.84 BETFAIR With Phil Taylor eliminated of the tournament, Gary Anderson became the first favorite to win this tournament. If he can keep his current playing form, he could be the new champion.
JAMES WADE 6.08 BETFAIR He is the second favorite, according to the bookmakers. He played well so far, he could have a good chance at the trophy.
ADRIAN LEWIS 6.27 BETFAIR The current champion, proved to be a bit inconsistent in this tournament. He is only third favorite in the bookmakers top five, and he will have to perform better if he wants to keep his title.
DAVE CHISNALL 10.00 PADDY POWER Fourth place in the favorites top five. His chances to win this tournament are small, but as we have seen so far, anything can happen.
SIMON WHITLOCK 11.00 STANJAMES Last in the top five favorites, he has small chances to win this tournament. Something close to a miracle must happen so he can have a chance at the trophy.
