You will of course soon be able to bet on the individual matches that are going to be played off as part of this year’s European Darts Championship, and if so then do keep in mind that you are also going to be able to bet on the player you think is going to win it too, and you can bet on them right now.
There are two ways of betting on the major darts event right now, the first is by simply placing your money down on the player you think is going to win it outright, and if that is something that tickles your fancy then the odds on many of the much more fancied darts players can be found below.
However, you can also back a player each way, and by doing so you will be paid out at the full odds if your chosen player does go on to win the European Darts Championship this year but if that player finished in one of the top positions you will be paid out at a percentage of the win odds.
The number of places that most bookies are paying out to however isn’t huge, in fact I have yet to find bookie that is paying out to more than two positions, however those bookies are going to be paying out at one third of the win odds on the place part of an each-way bet.
Van Gerwen is the Current Favourite to Win
If you are a very avid follower of the sport of Darts then you will know the is only going to be one player worth backing outright to win this darts event, and that player is of course Michael Van Gerwen for he is in the form of his life and it is going to take a very special player to beat him.
However, that is of course something that all bookies are also very aware of too, so do not expect to be offered high odds on him winning, in fact currently the highest valued odds I have seen being offered don him are just 6/5.
Who to Back Each- Way?
There are three darts players that are going to be taking their respective chances in the European Darts Championship this year that are standout each-way betting opportunities right now.
Those players are of course Peter Wright who does look something of a value each-way bet currently for he is being offered generally at most bookies sites at odds of around the 9/1 mark, but you could be tempted to back either Rob Cross at 11/1 or Gerwyn Price at odds of 12/1 each-way instead.
As for some much more riskier each-way betting opportunities then look at players such as Daryl Gurney and Mensur Suljovic who are both 18/1 or even be prepared to take your chances, on the likes of Dave Chisnall and Nathan Aspinall who are both currently trading at odds of 20/1, or even go for broke and take a huge chance on some of the 25/1 shots that include Glen Durran, Ian White and Michael Smith,.
