The 2019 running of the Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals will be the twelfth time that major darts tournament will have been played off, and it is of course a PDC darts tournament and one in which you are going to see the cream of the darts world taking their chances of winning a share of the massive prize pool.
There are going to be a total of 64 players taking part in that even, all of whom have rightly earned their place in it during the last 30 Players Championship events that took place during 2019.
As for just where the Players Championship Final will be staged this year, well it is over at the Butlins holiday camp in Minehead that it will be held at, and it is certainly a tournament that many very avid fans of the sport of darts will be attending or watching live on TV instead.
As for just players are currently heading the outright betting market, well it is as usual Michael Van Gerwen that leads the field at some very short odds, those being around the 5/4 and he is followed in the betting by both Rob Cross who is a 12/1 chance currently to win and then Gerwyn Price who is very easy to back at odds of 14/1.
Featured Day One Matches
There are three players that I expect to win their day one matches, and in the Dimitri van den Bergh v Stephen Bunting match I feel the 4/5 odds being offered on Van de Bergh are worth taking and he should win, as should too at odds of 1/2 is Darius Labanauskas who is up against Harry Ward.
All eyes will also be on Jose De Sousa who faces what I feel is an easy task in his match against James Richardson, and if you think, like me he will win that match, which he surely should do, you can pick up odds at most betting sites of around 2/5.
Additional Tips for Day One
Some other players that should breeze through and win their day one matches include Glen Durrant who can be backed at odds of 2/5 to beat Scott Baker and John Henderson looks a rock solid bet to beat Ryan Joyce in their match and his odds of doing so are 4/5.
You should also consider taking the 4/5 odds that are being offered on Max Hopp who has a great chance of coming out on top and winning his match which sees him up against Jelle Klaasen on day one.
It will be something of a shock if Dave Chisnall doesn’t win his day one match for he is being offered at ridiculously small odds of just 1/5 to beat Matthew Edgar, which he should do and one other player worth backing is Ian White and he is being offered at odds of around the 2/5 mark to come out on top and win his match in which he is playing against Devon Petersen.
