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.

Peter Wright and John Henderson are the defending champions. At the moment, Henderson is only ranked the sixth-best player in Scotland, but his form in the World Cup in recent years has given him a free pass.

Michael van Gerwen will be absent from the World Cup of Darts to undergo surgery, and unfortunately, that will hamper the Netherlands’ chances. He is replaced by Dirk van Duijvenbode – who is capable – but I think the Dutch will miss MVG too much.

England will be represented by Michael Smith and James Wade. Both of these players are amazing in their own right but have the tendency to crumble under pressure.

Having looked at the list of teams, I cannot see any team from outside the top eight seeded sides winning it.

I have mentioned that Wade and Smith could fade under pressure, but they could also switch it on and claim the title.

I do not have a lot of confidence in that pairing, so I am going for Wales to win the World Cup of Darts for the second time. Their pairing sees Jonny Clayton and Gerwyn Price team up, and it’s safe to say that if they bring their A-game, they could easily win this tournament.
