For those of you out there that are keen fans of darts, and always enjoy placing a myriad of bets and wagers on all major darts tournaments, then do keep in mind that it is going to be the Czech Darts Open that will be starting in earnest later today.
There are way too many darts players to bet on though, as the huge prize purse has attracted plenty of players from across the globe, but to help you get some idea of which players have been backed below is an overview of those players listed higher up on the betting markets for this tournament.
One thing that every punter will be aware of by now, is that whenever Michael Van Gerwen has entered any major darts tournaments, bookies across the world are going to have him listed as the early favourite to win, and as such that is the case in the Czech Darts Open for Gerwen has been installed as the 10/11 favourite according to ApexBettingSites.com.
The odds on all other darts players are of course going to be huge, based on Gerwen being the red-hot and odds-on favourite to win, and as for just which player is the early second favourite, well that honour falls to James Wade who is currently being touted at outright win odds of 12/1.
Plenty of Punters Betting Each-Way
Value is something you are going to be sadly not able to get backing Gerwen, and with that in mind I am aware plenty of punters have been backing players each-way, in the hope that the ones they select finish in the top positions of the leader board at the end of this tournament.
Having said that though most bookies are only paying out to two places and at one third of the win odds, but that does mean by picking out a player that does win or much more likely finishes second to Gerwen will see you getting a decent sized pay-out.
Who to Back Each-Way?
As for whom you should consider backing each-way, well with players such as both Gerwyn price and peter wright taking part in the Czech Darts Open they are two players you could end up pinning your hopes of having a winning bet on and they are both 14/1.
Then there are the likes of Ian White at 16/1 and Daryl Gurney at 20/1, but they will of course need everything to fall their way if they are to progress through this tournament, and that may just be too much of a big ask.
The rest of the field have very little chance to be fair to then of either winning or finishing in second spot, but anybody that do rate the overall winning chance of any of the other players should be betting on the Betfair betting exchange, as that is where the true and very real value will lay, and you can of course ask for any odds you like on any players too on that betting exchange too.
