2016 World Grand Prix (Darts) Betting Tips and Odds

Miroslaw Jaworski

The World Grand Prix is a darts competition that takes place every October in Dublin, Ireland. Initially, the competition was held in Rochester in 1998, 1999 but in 2000 it was held in Rosslare, Wexford county. The tournament requires that each player completes all the plays in each round on a double; this includes the bull’s eye.

This has led to it being described as a unique game, including for darts tips and betting. It has become one of the most anticipated darts events in recent years due to the unusual turn of events which is attributed to the loss of 11-time world grand Prix champion Phil Taylor with his last win being in 2013.

The 2015 Winner

The 2015 tournament saw the defending champion Michael van Gerwen lose to Robert Thornton, who is expected to fight for his win in this year’s competition between 2nd and 8th October at Citywest Hotel, Dublin. One of the most anticipated players to make a comeback is former champion Phil Taylor, whom most of the fans are waiting to see if he’ll manage a win against Michael, Robert, and two-time champion James Wade.

This year’s competition is expected to be one of the toughest in the history of the game thus making it the perfect competition for all gamblers looking for the best darts world championship odds.

Betting on the Darts World Championship

Wagering on your favourite player is not a new thing when it comes to darts.  Punters from all over try their luck on the best players. However, the games in past years have not been very exciting as there was only one winner - Phil Taylor. However, last year’s competition saw new opportunities for the betting community. The win was not very predictable making it more exciting for both the players and punters interested in darts betting. The same is expected in the 2016 tournament. A lot of players will be studying to see who is most likely to take the cup home.

World Darts Odds

World no. 1 Michael van Gerwen is unsurprisingly the favourite to win the World Grand Prix, yet he is odds-against at 11/10 after Taylor Phil defeated him twice at the Champions League of Darts, which took place recently.

The 16-time world champion got his first major crown in two years and he is now 4/1 to follow up this success with a victory in Dublin.

In addition, current world champion Gary Anderson is next in the running at 6/1, ahead of Lewis Adrian (16/1), while James Wade (20/1), Peter Wright (16/1), Chisnall Dave (25/1), Michael Smith (40/1) or Mensur Suljovic (33/1) are next in the running.

One extra thing you should know - defending champion Thornton, who shocked everyone in 2015 final - including Michael van Gerwen - is way out at 80/1 after a bad season.
