The European Darts Open tournament is not too far away now, and what you should be doing right now is trying to work out just which players are going to win that event, for the odds available on the futures betting markets are certainly rather tempting.
Take for example Paddy Power, they do have such a futures betting market now live, and as is always the case you can rely on that bookie to offer some of the very highest odds in the business, and below you will get an insight into just what odds they are offering on several fancied players to win that event.
You do of course have the option of backing any player to win this tournament outright and can take the odds listed below instantly or if you prefer you can back them each-way at Paddy Power and be rewarded for doing so with one third the win odds being offered to two places.
It does appear however that the so called smart money is currently pouring in on Michael van Gerwen to win this major darts tournament for the very highest odds I have seen being offered on him coming out on top and winning it are 11/10.
Players Who Are Next in the Betting
Not everybody will of course think that the favourite to win will come out on top and win the European Darts Open, and you may be of the mind it is going to be one of the second or third favourites that could win it.
If that is the case then it is at the Paddy Power you should be placing such bets for those two players that are next in the betting are Rob Cross at 8/1 and Peter Wright at 9/1 and those odds are there for the taking if you get a move on and back them right now!
A Few Other Potential Winners
You never know when one of the outsiders to win a darts tournament is going to find their very best form and any of the other entrants in the European Darts Open could of course go onto win it including Michael Smith who is 16/1.
There is also the chance that a darts player with even higher odds could win this event or at the very least make it to the second spot and therefore another one to consider backing each-way is Mensur Suljovic who is currently on offer at odds of 20/1.
If you thing that it will be either James Wade and Gerwyn Price who will win or get placed in the major darts tournament this year then now is a good time to put your money down and back them for they are both 22/1 shots.
As for a couple of other darts players to consider, well I do feel that all things considered there could be a chance that either Glen Durrant and Adrian Lewis could do well this year and if you agree with me you will certainly be tempted to back them right now at their odds of 25/1.
