Not only do Ladbrokes have the best odds on all players at the World Darts Championship, but nine dart finishes and 170 check-outs will give punters even more reason to cheer at Ally Pally according to Ladbrokes.
Losing match bets will be refunded throughout the tournament if the match features either crowd pleaser and the firm also pledge to be the best price on every player including Phil Taylor at even money until play gets under way on Thursday evening.
Adrian Lewis and Gary Anderson are The Power’s closest competition at 8/1 in the betting.
James Wade (10/1) is the best backed player on the other side of the draw whilst Simon Whitlock is also proving a popular each-way bet with punters at 25/1. Justin Pipe (100/1) is still the worst result in the book with Wes Newton (40/1) also backed to bring recent form to the big stage.
Jamie Caven (4/7) is favoured to kick off the tournament with a win against Roland Scholten (11/8) and reigning champion Adrian Lewis is heavily odds-on at 1/9 to beat Nigel Heydon (11/2).
Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “Nine dart finishes raise the roof and punters will get an early Christmas if the standard is as high as we expect it to be.”
She added: “Confidence in the Power has never been higher although many seem to think Justin Pipe is ready to come good.”
