PDC World Darts Championship Betting Tips & Predictions

The PDC (Professional Darts Corporation) is one of the two leading professional darts organisations in world darts. It was formed in 1992 as a 'breakaway' organisation for many of the world's top players who were dissatisfied with the performance of the sports' then sole governing body, the British Darts Organisation. 

Since 1992 the PDC has organised its own world darts championship, which commences in late December each year and concludes in January. This version of the world darts championship has been utterly dominated by Phil Taylor, whom has won it fourteen times. No other player has won it more than twice. You can get the best tips for this prestigious tournament right here.

BDO Darts Betting Tips

The BDO is the other governing body in UK darts, alongside the PDC. The BDO is much older than the PDC, having been formed in 1973 and having been members of the World Darts Federation since 1976. The BDO used to be the premier darts organisation in the UK until the formation of the more commercial PDC, since when the BDO has somewhat diminished in standing. 

The leading BDO tournament is the BDO World Darts Championship, which takes place in January each year. It was the world's leading darts tournament during darts' TV hey-day, and was won by such names as Eric Bristow, Jocky Wilson and John Lowe. Despite its lessening in importance you can still find tips for this tournament here at Live-Darts.com.

What other darts events do you provide tips for?

Ladbrokes UK Open

The UK Open - currently sponsored by the leading UK-based sportsbook Ladbrokes - is the second-most important competition in the PDC calendar after the World Championship. It is nicknamed 'the FA Cup of Darts' as players from all around the UK – both amateur and professional – are allowed to enter the competition. Thirty-two 'local' players join ninety-six of the biggest names in darts for the first round proper. 

The finals tournament takes place over a weekend in March each year. The most successful player in UK Open history is Phil Taylor, winning five times. Raymond van Barnevald, Michael van Gerwen and James Wade have all won the tournament twice.

Betfred World Matchplay

This tournament takes place each year in July at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, UK, and is organised by the PDC. As opposed to the 'set and legs' format of most leading darts tournaments World Matchplay tournament matches are played as a series of legs, in a style similar to frames in snooker tournaments. Since 2000, when it comes to the final the first player to win eighteen legs is the winner (by two clear legs with sudden death if the score reaches twenty-all). 

Thirty-two players compete in the tournament. As with most darts tournaments, Phil Taylor is the most successful competitor, winning the World Matchplay title an astounding 16 times in 23 years.

World Grand Prix

The World Grand Prix is a darts tournament that takes place in Dublin, Ireland each year. This tournament is unique in the darts calendar in that it uses the 'traditional' darts-playing rules of players having to start on a double as well as finishing on one. Uniquely, this means that in any game a nine-dart finish can only be achieved by either starting or ending on a double. 

This World Grand Prix has winning prize money of around £400,000 and has been won the most times – surprise, surprise – by Phil Taylor, although he last won it in 2013 prior to his retirement from competitive darts early in 2018.

Bwin Grand Slam of Darts

The Grand Slam of Darts is one of the more recent additions to the professional darts calendar, being conceived as a tournament in 2007. This competition takes place in November, and has every year been held at the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton (aside from 2018 when the Civic Hall was not available). 

This is another title won on a 'legs' basis rather than 'sets and legs'. Since 2009 the first player to win sixteen legs in the final is declared the winner. It's an invitation-only tournament, with only high-ranking and tournament winners and finalists being invited. 

Phil Taylor has won the Grand Slam title six times, with Michael van Gerwen winning it three times as the next most-successful competitor.

Ladbrokes Players Championship Finals

Another fairly-recent addition to the darts-playing calendar, this tournament was first organised by the PDC in 2009 and has been played in Purfleet, Doncaster and Minehead. It is now played annually in November. 

The competition is open to the players ranked in the top thirty-two positions in the Players Championship Order of Merit, which is an annual ranking system graded by the performances of players on the PDC Pro Tour. 

In recent years the tournament has been dominated by Michael van Gerwen, who won it every year between 2013 and 2017 bar one. Phil Taylor has won the title three times, including the first competition in 2009.

Unibet European Championship

This competition combines the leading European players with the top-ranked players on the PDC Order of Merit to create a tournament that's not so dominated by players in the UK, Belgium and the Netherlands as most other darts tournaments are. 

Since its inauguration in 2008, the tournament has taken place in the Netherlands, Germany and Belgium. Despite being known as the European Championship the tournament was won in 2012 by Australian Simon Whitlock. As with the Players Championship the competition has been dominated in recent times by Michael van Gerwen, although Phil Taylor won the title the first four times the competition was competed for.

Where can I find the best darts tips?

Since the retirement of Phil Taylor early in 2018 and despite the recent dominance of Michael van Gerwen darts has become a more difficult sport to predict. This means that the prices are much better as the field is much more open – in July 2017eventual winner Rob Cross was a 400-1 long shot to win the World PDC crown, for example. 

This means there are plenty of value bets to be had when wagering on darts, and here at Live-Darts.com we do all we can to provide you with the best darts tips available. We've had plenty of success in recent years with our darts betting tips, and we thoroughly expect that to continue.

What are the most popular darts bets?

The most common bet in darts is the simple straight forecast – you choose whom is going to win any game between two competing players. 

There are plenty more factors in a game of darts that you can wager on though. You can bet upon the correct score in any leg, on which player will score the most 180s, how many 180s will be scored during the match or during an individual leg, or on which player will secure the highest check-out. 

Darts is very much a game of numbers and as it involves numbers, it involves plenty that's measurable. If something can be measured or compared in any sporting contest then you can bet your bottom dollar that it can be wagered upon!

Where can I get the best darts odds?

In truth, all sports books monitor all other sports books, so the price you will receive for any aspect of any darts encounter that you may wish to wager upon will not waver much no matter where you look. 

Perhaps the question you should be asking is 'where am I likely to get the best darts betting experience' – i.e. which sports books will treat you fairly - with speedy, hassle-free payouts and help (including live chat help) whenever you get stuck.
