World Cup Of Darts Betting Odds, Tips & Predictions
Some of the best players in the world will be teaming up and battling it out to be crowned the World Cup of Darts champions.
Australia will begin their defence of the My Diesel Claim World Cup of Darts against Guyana on Thursday’s opening night in Frankfurt, as host nation Germany kick off their campaign against Hong Kong.
Simon Whitlock and Damon Heta teamed up last year to defeat Welsh duo Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton 3-1 in the Final.
The 2023 World Cup of Darts will take place at the Eissporthalle from June 15-18, with an expanded tournament featuring 40 teams and a £450,000 prize fund.
The top four ranked nations – based on the lowest cumulative PDC Order of Merit ranking of the two competing players – are seeded and will enter in the second-round.
Four-time winners England and Netherlands will begin their campaign in the last 16, alongside 2020 winners Wales and two-time champions Scotland.
The remaining 36 teams have been split into 12 groups of three for the round-robin first round – including 12 seeded nations – from which each group winner will progress.
Heta and Whitlock will once again team up to defend their title. Other major contenders include Wales with Price and Clayton, while World Champion Michael Smith will partner Rob Cross for England.
Peter Wright and Gary Anderson will represent Scotland with the latter looking to find his best form. Host nation Germany have selected Gabriel Clemens and Martin Schindler.
There are plenty of talented teams on display at the World Cup of Darts, but I honestly cannot look past Wales. Price is one of the best players in the world and Clayton is not far behind.
The two of them are capable of being crowned champions. They teamed up together in in 2021 to win the title and were runners-up last year – they are clearly one of the teams to beat.
