Glen Durrant has seen his outright odds for a series of major PDC tournaments slashed following his maiden ranking triumph last weekend.

Durrant claimed his first PDC title at just the fourth attempt with victory at Players Championship Four in Wigan on Sunday, defeating Dimitri van den Bergh in the final.

The Teessider went one better than his runner-up spot at the same venue a week earlier and took his PDC prize money tally to £16,000, eclipsing the efforts of Stephen Bunting, Rob Cross and Corey Cadby from the same period of their first four events as PDC players.

Now ranked 74th in the main Order of Merit, 'Duzza' has stormed into second spot on the seasonal Players Championship Order of Merit and has already moved into the provisional qualification places for July's World Matchplay.

It is estimated he will need to rack up around £35,000 in prize money in order to secure a debut in Blackpool this summer, meaning he is just under halfway towards that tally.

Tournament sponsors Betfred have subsequently cut his outright odds from 66/1 a week ago to 40/1 to go all the way at the Winter Gardens.

After securing a third consecutive Lakeside title in January, Durrant was widely available at upwards of 50/1 to win the 2019/20 PDC World Championship, but he has since been shortened to just 25/1 with tournament sponsors William Hill and a best price of 50/1 available at Bet365.
