Now, I know what you are going to say, when I tell you that the early betting markets have now opened on the 2019 PDC World Championship.
That will be that the event is so far away in the future why on Earth would anybody bet on the early betting markets and not wait until the event is just a few days away from starting to then place their bets.
Well, it is always the case that those punters who are prepared to take advantage of early betting markets are going to find plenty of value to be had, for if they do have something of an inclincling of just which darts players are going to find their form soon, then they can bag some much better odds by betting long in advance of the scheduled starting time of this event.
Not all the odds will be as generous as they could be, but by making a point of betting early, there is always the chance they and you could get some excellent betting value.
Currently the favourite to win this far off darts tournament is Michael van Gerwen, but I wouldn’t be tempted to place a long-term bet on him based on his current odds of just even money, but that will be a decision for you to make of course.
Best Early Prices to Take
At this stage of the betting, I think it would be advisable for you to consider placing one or two each way bets on the PDC World Championship, for most betting sites are offer 1/2 the odds on the first and second placed player in that tournament.
By taking Michael van Gerwen out of the equation that does give you plenty of players to bet on each-way and still get a decent return on your investment if any of them come second to him.
Take for example Gary Anderson his early odds are 6/1 and those exact same odds are being offered on Rob Cross, so there will be some value to be had if you do fancy the chances of either of those two joint second favourites to win this event.
Peter Wright never fails to attract punters, and I know for a fact there will be plenty of them out there who will be prepared to take a gamble on him in this event at his current odds those being 12/1.
The odds currently up for grabs on players such as Michael Smith at 20/1, Phil Taylor and Corey Cadby along with Daryl Gurney at 33/1 may be worth taking, in fact I have just also noticed that Raymond van Barneveld has had a few best placed on him resulting in his odds also dropping down to 33/1.
Out of all the other players the only two I can see possibly doing well in this tournament are Mensur Suljovic at 40/1 and Dimitri van den Bergh at 50/1, but if you do want to try and pick out a huge priced winner of this event then below are some of the complete outsiders!
Outsiders in with a Chance of Winning
As I did mention there are some huge odds on the early betting markets for this event I suppose I should give you some ideas of just how generous those odds really are.
Simon Whitlock can certainly play, and I have a sneaking suspicion he may be tempted to have a bet on himself to win next years title, for he is currently available at odds of 100/1 to do so, and that could be an each-way betting opportunity if you are to take his form as good.
Max Hopp can be had at odds of 150/1 and too can Jeffrey de Zwaan, however when you start looking further down the list of players of most sportsbooks betting markets on this event you will find players such as Benito van de Pas at 200/1 Kim Huybrechts at 250/1, James Wilson at an even bigger 300/1 and right at the bottom you will find Jamie Caven who does seem to be friendless at the minute with win odds of a huge 500/1!
