MVG leads betting for Ally Pally

By Editorial Staff 15/12/2020

Event sponsor William Hill have Michael Van Gerwen as the favorite for the PDC World Championships. The event, held at London's Alexandra Palace, lasts until the new year and gets underway live and on SKY Sports Darts this evening.

Those who fancy a straight bet on the winner of the overall title will note that MVG at 5/2 to more generous than is usually the case for The Green Machine. Patchy form and the narrowing of the gap within the field are reflected here. 

Welsman Gerwyn Price is the second favourite and at 5-1 looks good value, for a recent major winner. Peter Wright is just a litter further out (at 6-1) to retain the title and join a select band of back-to-back champions.

The real value may lie in spotting who can come through the pack and cope with what may by varying circumstances and conditions this year. The crowd will now be totally absent again possibly increasing the chances of, former Lakeside winner and reigning Premier League champion, Glen Durrant (28/1) completing a remarkable journey after switching from the BDO.

There is however some remarkable possible value in the lower reaches. Nick Kenny and Jamie Lewis, semi-finalist only 3 years ago, are not your average 500-1 player. The same goes for Jason Lowe (400-1) who came within two darts of defeating MVG in the Uk Open this year. If you can find odds on them reaching latter stages, or fancy a few cheeky each way bets, then this is a ripe pool to choose from.

Could the perennial mystery that is Ian White (80-1) finally crack the case. Ian is one of the top three or four non TV players in the world and at times seems unstoppable. Yet his record in the TV majors is so different to his ability level that, despite being in the top 16, he is priced at odds that should he turn things around will look very generous indeed.
