The premier tournament for the world’s best darts players has finally arrived with the PDC World Darts Championship set to start in North London this Thursday. Alexandra Palace is our venue once again for some great entertainment, culminating in the final on New Year’s Day.
All the big names are here but one man stands out as the favourite. Defending champion Michael Van Gerwen has a significant lead in the markets but new customers to Coral can get much better odds of 33/1 if MVG reclaims his crown.
After a brilliant run of form, Mighty Mike has shortened in the outright markets for 2018’s World Championship. A few weeks ago, the Dutchman could have been picked up at around Even Money but his best odds now stand at 8/11 with Stan James and Betway.
Behind Van Gerwen we have a gap to the second favourite Gary Anderson at a best of 7/1 with SkyBet while Peter Wright is at 12/1 with Paddy Power and the legend Phil Taylor follows at 14/1 with SkyBet.
MVG has been beaten by all of those rivals at some stage but his current form underlines why he is so far ahead in the betting. So, if you feel that the odds setters have got this one right, here’s what you need to do next.
You qualify for the offer only if you do not already hold an account with Coral and you can join up by following the link. Registration is very simple with just basic personal information needed and in a very short space of time you will be welcomed on board and taken to the cashier.
At this point the minimum deposit required is £5.00 and we suggest using a debit or credit card here as certain eWallets, including Skrill, Neteller and paysafecard are excluded from the deal and you won’t be able to proceed.
When you fund with a card, the transaction should be instant and then it’s time to make the bet.
Betting and Payouts
Stake the fixed amount of £1.00 on Michael Van Gerwen to win the upcoming PDC World Championships and if he is successful and takes the title on New Year’s Day 2018, you will be paid out in two clear steps.
Initial profits will be at Coral’s published, standard book price and these will be paid in cash as soon as the tournament finishes. The balance, up to that quoted price boost figure of 33/1, will then appear as free bet tokens.
These tokens will hit your account within 24 hours but look out for them as you must use them within 4 days before they expire.
There is a consolation element to this bet as well because, if Van Gerwen doesn’t succeed and fails to defend his title, you will receive a £5.00 free bet token with that same 4 day expiry limit.
Man to Beat
The middle of the year was a shaky period for Michael Van Gerwen but the Dutch Darter has turned things around as 2017 comes to an end. Notable defeats to Phil Taylor and Daryl Gurney in big tournaments show that he can be beaten but MVG has been the standout performer this year and he deserves those short odds.
If you agree with the bookmakers and qualify for this offer, feel free to check all terms and conditions as those odds of 33/1 on an MVG win will be tough to beat for this year’s PDC World Championships.
