PDC World Championship 2019
It is at Alexandra Palace that the PDC World Championship darts tournament will be held in 2019, which has been the setting for that major darts tournament since way back in 2008.
The number of fans of darts has been growing year on year, and this is certainly a tournament worth winning, for the prize fund, much like the audience has also been growing year on year and in 2019 the prize fund on offer is huge at some £2,500,000!
It is William Hill who are sponsoring this event, and with such a huge prize fund on offer, there are of course plenty of darts players who have their eyes on that fund, and in this guide I will be giving you an insight into both the outright betting markets that plenty of betting sites now have live and also giving you an insight into the types of bets and wagers you can place on this event too.
The final game may seem a long way away, but as is always the case it is those sports bettors that take advantage of the early betting markets who are going to be able to lock in the best betting value by making use of the early prices currently being offered by a range of different betting sites.
Plus, as most if not all betting sites and betting apps will have some form of new customer sign up offer available you could bag all manner of additional promotional offers when signing up to a betting site you are not yet a customer of, so do keep that in mind also!
Each-way and Outright Early Prices on the Championship
By taking advantage of the early prices betting markets that are now live you could secure some high odds on your chosen player, and when placing an each-way bet most betting sites go one half the odds on the place part of such a bet.
You will always be best advised to check the current live betting markets to see the current odds available, however currently, at the time of compiling this guide it is Michael Van Gerwen at odds of 11/10 who is the favourite to win this event.
The odds jump to 9/2 on the second favourite and that is Rob Cross, however there are plenty of other players who could surprise everyone and win the PDC World Championship 2019 and some that could include Gary Anderson at odds of 6/1 or even Peter Wright at 12/1.
As the event is quite some time away there could be some value betting on a range of different darts players who could suddenly find their best form, and as such consider placing a few well-thought-out bets on players such as Corey Cadby at 33/ or Michael Smith, and Daryl Gurney both currently on offer at 40/1
Most of the other players are 100/1 bar with several of them being available at odds as high as 1000/1 except for Raymond Van Barneveld and Adrian Lewis both at 50/1, Mensur Suljovic at 66/1 and Dave Chisnall whose odds are currently around the 80/1 mark.
Types of World Darts Championship Bets
The above odds are available on the outright betting markets, however there are of course plenty of other ways that you are going to be able to bet on your favourite darts player other than just taking the outright winner odds on the player you think is going to win.
As soon as each individual game goes live so will the live in-play betting markets and those betting markets will allow you to place a bet as the games are in full flow, however the odds will change quite rapidly as the games all progress.
You could choose to bet on whether any individual match will end with one player scoring a bull to end a game, and the odds on one player doing so will be quite high, often way higher than their odds to win a match outright.
I have also started to notice more and more betting sites and bookmakers now offering a handicap betting market on the PDC World Championship matches, and that may be of interest to you if one of your chosen players to win any match has very low win odds.
What I would suggest you do is to look over the betting markets available at any of our featured betting sites, for all of them will give you a plethora of different bets types on all darts matches, and you will always get paid out your winnings quickly when betting at any of those top-rated sites too.
Past Winners of the PDC World Championship
It was Rob Cross that won the PDC World Championship last year in 2018 and he beat Phil Taylor to take the crown with a final score of 7–2, the prize pool last year was a huge £1,800,000 and Rob took home the lions share of that prize pool that being some £400,000.
Back in 2017 is was a player from the Netherlands that was crowned the champion of this event, that player being Michael van Gerwen, that was the second time he had won this event and in the final game he was playing against a player from Scotland, that being Gary Anderson and his first place cut of the prize pool of £1,650,000 was an impressive £350,000!
Many people did back Gary Anderson to win the above match, for the previous year in 2016 he had won this event, with a final match score of 7–5 playing against Adrian Lewis. In 2016 the prize fund stood at some £1,500,000 and Anderson bagged a huge £300,000 share of that prize fund with Lewis taking home £150,000.
In fact, as luck would have it back in 2015 Gary Anderson also had an amazing season for he won this event for the first time beating one of the players who had been short odds-on to win, that being Phil Taylor with a score of 7-6.
