Anderson price boosted to retain Darts World Championship crown

Gary Anderson’s 2015 hit such vertigo-inducing heights when he followed up the PDC World Championship with the Premier League title, he was gifted entry to an ultra-exclusive club.

Only the Flying Scotsman and the most legendary player in darting history, aka Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor, have added both of these most prestigious PDC trophies to their mantlepieces in the same calendar year.

Some months on from claiming a second Premier League title, Anderson is gearing up to defend his maiden Alexandra Palace crown, ranked as the world’s second best player for the first time in his career.

The fantastic festive news for Ladbrokes customers looking to back the merciless doubles maker from Musselburgh, is that the bookmaker have inflated Anderson’s price to see off the world championship competition yet again.

For one day only Ladbrokes are boosting the Flying Scotsman from 13/2 out to 8/1 to secure back-to-back world championships.

Given the season which Anderson has just placed in the books – which included a nail-biting runners-up spot behind Micheal van Gerwen at the European Championship – this really is the tastiest of tungsten tidbits thrown down by the bookmaker.

Anderson has a healthy winning record over all of the higher seeds in his quarter of the draw to boot, while he recorded victory over his most likely semi-final foe, Taylor, as recently as November.
