Reigning World Champion Rob Cross has been heavily backed to suffer a shock elimination in his debut Premier League Darts season.

Cross has suffered back-to-back defeats in the early stages of the Premier League, mustering just three legs in his opening two matches.

The world number three finds himself at the foot of the table heading in to Week Three of the competition in Newcastle and already three points adrift of the top four.

Despite starting out as the second favourite to lift this title, these two performances have seen punters turn the tide and come to the conclusion that perhaps the former plumber is not all he’s cracked up to be.

Since he departed the stage in Cardiff last week, more than 79% of bets from Oddschecker punters have backed him to be relegated. 

Simon Whitlock was the only player who was odds-on to be relegated on Judgement Night before a dart was thrown, but after two impressive wins over Mensur Suljovic and Cross, he is now as big as 4/1 to face the drop.

It is now Gerwyn Price who is 4/6 favourite to bow out after Week Nine, with the Welshman picking up just one point from a possible four so far.

Oddschecker spokesman George Elek said: "Much was expected from Rob Cross after he won the World Championship but it hasn't been the best of starts for him.

"I'd expect him to bounce back but it has to be sooner rather than later, else he could be in serious trouble in his first season in the Premier League."
