Most punters are now turning their attention over to the European Championship darts event, and with plenty of players involved in it there is also a good chance you rate one of those players to take the title this year.
However, no matter whether you are a high stake or low stake punter, there is one player that you cannot ignore the chance of and that player is of course Michael van Gerwen, he has been the favourite to win this major darts event as soon as the betting markets opened, and he has already been backed down to outright win odds of just 6/5.
Therefore you are not going to get rush backing him but it is fair and true to say the majority of punters stakes are going on him, but there is always the chance this could finally be an event he doesn’t play up to his very best form of course and that could see any of the other players beating him to the title.
As for who is most likely to do so, well there is always support for Peter Wright, no mater in which darts tournaments he is playing in and if you think this will be finally be a tournament that he manages to come out on top in then back him now is my advice as his 9/1 odds are there for the taking.
Rob Cross is a Fair Each-Way Punt
Looking at those players that have a fair chance of coming second this year in the European Darts Championship if Van Gerwen does end up winning it, well there is another one that you may be interested in betting on and that player is Rob Cross, whose odds are going to be too tempting for some punters, and those odds are 11/1.
When it comes to betting each-way though do keep in mind that the percentage of the win odds you are going to get on the place part of such a bet can and will vary, however the most favourable each-way betting terms are one third of the odds being paid out to two places.
Other Players Attracting Some Support
I will now let you know which other players are attracting bits and bobs of support from punters, however there is no great deal of confidence in the following players, not even from an each-way betting points of view.
The first of them is Gerwyn Price and he could tempt you to back him each-way if you are prepared to risk your money in exchange for win odds of around the 12/1 mark.
Next in the betting at odds of 18/1 you have the likes of both Daryl Gurney and Mensur Suljovic and they are followed by the 220/1 shots those being Dave Chisnall and Nathan Aspinall, the only other players one of which could scrape into second position are Glen Durran, Ian White and Michael Smith, and they are all readily available at odds of around the 25/1 mark.
