Most Popular Darts Markets
The most popular market in world darts is the outright market for the PDC World Championship. Previously dominated by Phil Taylor with 14 PDC and 2 BDO titles, the game now sees Michael van Gerwen the man to beat.
Within each tournament match betting also generates a great deal of turnover. This market is a two-way as there is always a winner and a loser in a darts match. Bookmakers compete in terms of margins. In some cases players cannot be split so are assigned the same odds, usually 5/6 the pair but sometimes 10/11. Often though, there is an overwhelming favourite to win the match.
It is also possible to bet on the correct score in terms of sets. Darts matches are split into legs and sets. Generally a set is the best of five legs and matches can be played over anything from seven to 15 sets. In some cases a player must establish a lead of two sets to win the match.
