It has been one of the most gripping World Matchplay Darts Tournaments for quite some time, and whilst a couple of the final six players left in this year’s running of that tournament were firm favourites to win, before the tournament started, there are still some rank outsiders still left in it and any of them could win this most prestigious event too!
As to who is going to win the 2018 World Matchplay Darts Tournament, that is a decision I am going to leave up to you, however this betting guide is going to give you an overview of a range of different betting opportunities that are on offer to you at some of our approved betting site such as Betfred.
But let me first enlighten you on the current state of the outright betting market, for that should at least give you some ideas as to where both the smart money is going, and also just which players have a better chance of winning this event, based on their current form!
The punters favourite to win is of course Gary Anderson who certainly does have the required skills and talents to win this even, and if you do fancy his chances you can secure odds of 4/5 on him doing so.
Another darts player you are bound to have heard and seen playing before is Peter Wright and he has rightfully earned his position in the last six players of this tournament, and you can back him at win odds of 10/3.
The other four players that do remain in the World Matchplay Darts tournament and therefore still have a chance of winning it, albeit a much lower chance than both Anderson and Wright include Jeffrey De Zwaan at 6/1, Mensur Suljovic at 7/1, Simon Whitlock at 25/1 and Darren Webster at 33/11
Fridays World Matchplay Match
Later on tonight you are going to be able to settle down and watch the Peter Wright v Simon Whitlock match on TV, and that match does promise to be an exciting one, for even though Peter Wright is the short odds-on favourite to win that match, Whitlock is not going to go down without a fight, I can assure you of that!
If you fancy having a financial interest in the outcome of that match then the best odds available on Peter Weight coming out on top and winning it are 1/3 over at the Betfred sportsbook, and that very same betting site are also offer odds currently of 12/5 on Simon Whitlock winning too!
Two Matches on Saturday
There are two matches scheduled to start on Saturday and the first one is the match between Mensur Suljovic and Darren Webster, as far as the betting markets go the odds on Suljovic winning are short at 4/11, however you can secure odds if you are quick of 11/5 on Webster winning that match.
The final match of the day on Saturday is the Jeffrey De Zwaan v Gary Anderson match, De Zwaan is the outsider to win at odds of 11/4 and you can secure odds of 2/7 on Anderson winning that match.
