PDC World Darts Championship Betting Tips and Bet Preview

We are now just hours away from the start of the much anticipated PDC World Championships. Usually, that means I’m about four days away from my picks crashing out to someone I’ve never really taken any notice of. Like the FA Cup, this competition is full of surprises, but some players have an easier draw than others, and I have my eye on one of them.

Although the odds suggest there’s little chance of an upset, MVG will be hoping someone can dispose of Barney before he may have too.

When we look at quarter two Lewis, Wright, Huybrechts and Chisnall, it isn’t a group likely to produce a tournament winner, but it’s a very tough group that many people will be happy to avoid.

Quarter three will see Gary Anderson and James Wade pitted together. There may be one or two challenges along the way, but I don’t expect anyone to shift those two.

Finally we have the Power, Phil Taylor, who is seeded alongside Terry Jenkins, Robert Thornton and Mark Webster. Of course, if you’re going to win any tournament, you need to beat a few handy players along the way. But these are all players who have and can beat Taylor on their day.

The quarter that catches my eye the most is the one containing James Wade. It goes without saying Anderson is a tough out, but I wouldn’t be at all fussed by the remaining players. The other quarters all have a few banana skins outside of the favorites, whilst Whitlock would be the only half concern here.

James Wade is long odds are a price of 26.00, but I like the look of him. A matchup against World Champion Anderson may have lengthened those odds – but I don’t know why.

Gary has crashed out of the last three tournaments early and he struggles to beat James Wade. The Scotsman is not in his best form right now, and we know he’s a confidence player. Wade has come a long way since those days and is now a model of consistency.

It’s been said many a time that James Wade is probably the best player yet to win a title in the game of Darts. I wholeheartedly agree, and we’ve seen so many moments of class from this guy this season. He’s pulled out several wins, and he was just fantastic in losing to MVG.

What interests me going beyond a winnable quarter is that Phil Taylor is the big name in the second half of the draw, but he is on a more than questionable run of form, and Wade can most definitely top him.
