World Series Of Darts Finals Betting Tips

As the players move on to this weekend’s World Series Final in Salzburg, the Austrian darts fans will also be back in attendance, making it the first PDC event played in front of a crowd since March. 

24 players in total will be in competition over the next few days including the world’s top 15 stars plus a select few choices including Fallon Sherrock (300/1).

Of the heavyweights, only Gary Anderson will be missing after choosing not to travel. Michael van Gerwen will be there, however, and has started to raise his game after he unimaginably missed out on the Darts Premier League playoffs, a poor performance which followed losing to Dimitri van den Bergh at the World Matchplay.

MVG has been quickly installed as favourite and, as the number one seed, finds himself in the sweeter side of the draw. Bear in mind though that MVG is destined to meet Premier League leader Glen Durrant or his new/old nemesis Van den Bergh in round two. 

Those two meet in round one and if Duzza can bring his Darts Premier League A game to Austria then you would think that a clash with the Dutch world number one beckons next. A wager on Duzza, win or each way, is tempting given his pre-tournament odds of 16/1.

There must surely be some money lumped on two-time Grand Slam of Darts champion Gerwyn Price, however, who arrives in the kind of form that has seen him book to back Autumn Series successes in which he averaged 104 over six matches. 

The Iceman is another that didn’t make it to the Darts Premier League playoffs and this week finds himself in the bottom half of the draw along with world champion Peter Wright and Nathan Aspinall, but if he can summon the same form here in Salzburg that he has produced of late, then the Welshman can go all the way and claim another TV title.

If you are looking for a longer odds darter, at least at each way, then may we suggest Krzysztof Ratajski, a member of the top 16 and already a winner on the tour this season. The Polish Eagle also made the last eight of the World Matchplay and finished eighth in the Autumn Series Order of Merit and meets Mensur Suljovic first up on Friday.

As a local hero, Suljovic will have the crowd behind him though making him a tough hurdle to get past.

The event will be shown on ITV4 this Friday at 1900 GMT.

2019 US Darts Masters Betting Tips

2019 US Darts Masters Betting Tips

2019 US Darts Masters

The World Series of Darts gets underway this week in Las Vegas at the South Pacific Ballroom at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, which will host the North American Darts Championship and U.S. Darts Masters from Tuesday, July 2 through Friday, July 5.

The action begins with two days of Qualifiers on July 2-3 before the PDC US Darts Masters officially gets started on July 4 with eight first-round games before the North American Championships gets underway in the evening. Everything is then wrapped up on the Friday with the conclusion of the US Darts Masters that will bring the curtain down on the opening 2019 World Series of Darts event of 2019.

As a quick recap, the PDC launched the World Series in 2013. In that year, the PDC sent eight top players to Dubai and Sydney in the hope of spreading the sport’s uniquely British appeal to new, global audiences. Over the years, as popularity has grown, the competition has expanded with more events added to the tour.

There are now five World Series tournaments on the calendar in 2019, plus the World Series of Darts Finals. New Zealand’s Hamilton and Cologne in Germany make their debuts in the World Series this year, replacing Auckland and Gelsenkirchen respectively. Las Vegas, where we get started, Melbourne and Brisbane all remain on the schedule, while this year Shanghai will not be a stopover this time around. Finally, the World Series Finals will be staged in the Netherlands for the first time in Amsterdam in November.

World Series of Darts Schedule 2019

  • 4-5 July – U.S. Darts Masters – Las Vegas
  • 12-13 July – German Darts Masters – Cologne
  • 9-10 August – Brisbane Darts Masters
  • 16-17 August – Melbourne Darts Masters
  • 23-24 August – New Zealand Darts Masters – Hamilton
  • 1-3 November – World Series of Darts Finals – Amsterdam

There are eight top performers from the PDC tour in attendance: Michael van Gerwen, Rob Cross, Daryl Gurney, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price, Michael Smith, Nathan Aspinall and Gary Anderson, who won this event last year. North American competitors will be confirmed on Tuesday and Wednesday this week where the winner of each of the four qualifying events will receive a place in the stage events, along with the top four players from the Qualifiers’ Order of Merit.

The winner of the North American Darts Championship will qualify for the 2020 World Darts Championship, meaning that all eight North American qualifiers will be looking to emulate the 2017 winner, South Dakota policeman Willard Bruguier, who previously claimed a competitive place in London.

2019 US Darts Masters and North American Darts Championship Schedule

Tuesday 2 July – North American Qualifiers One and Two
Wednesday 3 July – North American Qualifiers Three and Four
Thursday 4 July – US Masters Last 16 and North American Darts Championship
Friday 5 July – US Masters Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals and Final

A quick run through of the competitors reveals that, unsurprisingly, Michael van Gerwen is the favourite to lift the trophy on Friday. To that end, Betwayhave price the big Dutchman at evens to win the first World Series event of the season. Last year’s Vegas champion, Gary ‘The Flying’ Scotsman is at a very decent and extremely attractive 7/1, not least because he should be in buoyant mood having recently taken down the World Cup of Darts in partnership with Peter Wright. Snakebite himself is at the wider price of 12/1 and could be about to turn around his season too, and, let’s face it, if anyone should thrive off the energetic atmosphere of Sin City it’s him.

The slightly shorter priced Rob ‘Voltage’ Cross can also be picked up for 7/1, but I’m sticking with Anderson this time out. Refreshed from sitting out the Premier League and buoyed by World Cup success, They Flying Scotsman price of 7’s is too good to turn down. Elsewhere, Gerwyn Price is available at 14/1, Michael Smith 16/1, Daryl Gurney 22/1 and Nathan Aspinall 25/1. Others available on request, all at Betway.

James Wade Wins World Series Of Darts Finals; MVG Goes Into 2018 Grand Slam Of Darts As 10:11 Favourite

James Wade Wins World Series Of Darts Finals; MVG Goes Into 2018 Grand Slam Of Darts As 10:11 Favourite

James Wade World Series of Darts

One week from putting an end to his half-decade wait for a TV championship win at the European Championship, James ‘The Machine’ Wade won another as he beat Michael Smith 11-10 in the final of the World Series of Darts Finals.

Wade’s TV double came in Vienna after a hard-fought match that only began to split after The Machine broke to a 10-9, only to miss two darts for the match. This fumble allowed Smith back in the match from where he managed to force a deciding leg where he would throw first. Just like his opponent at the oche, Bully Boy also dropped his two championship shots.

In a match where seemingly no one wanted to win, Wade couldn’t take out his required 141, instead, letting Smith in for three shots at the double 20. Missing all three, Wade returned to take out the double 18 in one shot to bring home the title, his second in as many weeks. The Machine, who knocked out Raymond van Barneveld in the semi-final, hit five 180s and averaged 97 in the match where he would win his ninth career TV title. Smith, who one round earlier dispensed of Welshman Gerwyn Price, would average 99 and hit five maximums.

A look at the Grand Slam of Darts matchups

This Saturday sees the Sky Sports-televised Grand Slam of Darts, which takes place at the Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton from November 10-18. This unique tournament features players from both the PDC and BDO, which is combining to make a field of 32 in a 24/8 split. The event’s structure sees eight groups of four in a round-robin phase make up a first round, before the remaining 16 players go through to the knockout stages. During the round robin phase, each player will face off against each other once in a best-of-nine legs match, with two points going to the winner.

Michael van Gerwen has been grouped with Jonny Clayton, Joe Murnan and Gary Robson in Group A, while Michael Smith headlines Group B with Raymond van Barneveld, Krzysztof Ratajski and Adam Smith-Neale.

The in-form James Wade faces a tough Group C that includes Keegan Brown, Mark Webster and Wesley Harms, while Group D pits Ian White, Steve Hine and Michael Unterbuchner against Gary Anderson. Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright, seeded second, leads Group E where his opponents will be Max Hopp, Josh Payne and Jim Williams.

BDO world champion Glen Durrant goes in Group F, along with Simon Whitlock, Gerwyn Price and Andrew Gilding, while Mensur Suljovic will be the favourite in Group G that includes qualifier Stephen Bunting plus Martin Schindler and Scott Mitchell. Reigning PDC world champion Rob Cross will meet Ryan Searle and Mark McGeeney along with hot prospect Dimitri van den Bergh in Group H.

Grand Slam of Darts Betting Tips

Despite not being quite as dominant in the second half of this year, three-time defending champion Michael van Gerwen is the 10/11 favourite to lift the trophy for the fourth year in a row. The PDC world number one showed his class with last month’s World Grand Prix triumph, however, and it’s up to the likes of Gary Anderson, Peter Wright to stop him. Worryingly for the challengers though is that the format of this event suits the 29-year-old Dutchman — is there one that doesn’t? — who can utilise his three group matches to gather momentum as the competition goes on.

Of course, the same can be said for world number one and three Gary ‘The Flying Scotsman’ Anderson and Peter Wright. Anderson, in particular, offers the biggest threat to Mighty Mike and Betway have installed a 5/1 price on his head to win the tournament. Don’t discount a rejuvenated James Wade, fresh from his dual wins on the European circuit in Dortmund and Vienna. Betway are offering 20/1 on Wade and 9/1 on Wright to win outright. Mensur Suljovic is the other name worth considering this coming week after such an improved season. He can be picked up for 18/1.

Glen Durrant is my pick of the BDO qualifiers at 33/1 after reaching the quarter-finals last year, although emulating Scott Waites as the only other past winner from the BDO is a very tall order. In fact, Betway have priced any winner from the BDO at 20/1. Rob Cross fans can back their boy at 14/1, while Michael Smith, still looking for his first televised win, is available on 20/1, which is 30 points away from Gerwyn Price’s 50/1, again at Betway.
