2022 PDC World Darts Championship Odds

For some sports fans Christmas means one thing – Alexandra Palace and the World Darts Championship.

It has become a staple in the sporting calendar in recent times as the popularity of the sport has grown phenomenally and there will be plenty glued to their television screens over the course of the two weeks of action. 

The standard of the game has risen in turn with the increased viewership and, as ever, there will be plenty of betting interest from those who are watching. There are plenty of valuable odds leading into the knockout tournament, all of which are supplied by Paddy Power.

Unsurprisingly the favourite to win the tournament is the top seed and current world number one Gerwyn Price. The pantomime villain of the sport, he won the World Championship last year and has had an excellent 2021.

Winning it this year would see him become just the third player in the competition’s history to win it in back-to-back years alongside Phil Taylor and Gary Anderson. The bookmakers clearly fancy his chances to do so with his current price being 4/1, making him the favourite to lift the trophy.

Michael van Gerwen follows Price at 9/2 after a year which has seen him fail to win any of the PDC’s premier events for the first time since 2011. Still, he has regularly got to the latter stages of many tournaments and the three-time world champion is still unstoppable on his day. Victory this time around would give him four world titles, still leaving him 10 short of Taylor overall.

Peter Wright believes he should be the favourite to win the tournament but the bookies currently have him as the third favourite. The Scot comes into Ally Pally off the back of a season that has seen him win the World Matchplay and Players Championship Finals for the first time in his career. World champion in 2020, you can get a price of 13/2 for the 51-year-old.

Slightly behind him at 7/1 is Jonny Clayton, who has won four TV titles this year. Clayton has enjoyed a terrific 2021 that has seen him rise to eighth in the world rankings after winning the World Grand Prix, Premier League, Masters and World Series Finals. There will be no player in a more confident mood than Clayton coming into London.

There is a pretty significant drop off in terms of the odds once it gets past the top four contenders, with Dimitri van den Bergh being the only other player lower than 20/1 at 14/1. The Belgian recently made it to the World Series Final before losing to Clayton 11-6.

If your favourite pick is outside of these five then you can get seriously good value. Michael Smith is priced at 25/1, while Jose De Sousa, Nathan Aspinall and Rob Cross are all 28/1. Two-time champion and five-time finalist Gary Anderson is 33/1, with James Wade and Ryan Searle both at 40s.
