Seven Dutchman are in the field so the home fans will have plenty to cheer about, but the favourite remains Welshman and returning champion Gerwyn Price.

Queen Of The Palace

Fallon Sherrock, who this week qualified for the PDC World Championships of Darts, will also be in action. 

The Queen of the Palace is actually the second seed on account of her runner-up finish in the Nordic Masters in Copenhagen a few weeks back.

Despite that, bet365 have priced her up at 100/1.

To be fair, she only needed to win two matches to reach that final after her scheduled opponent in the quarter-final, world number one Gerwyn ‘The Iceman’ Price withdrew from the competition with an injury. All the same, her comeback against the Dream Maker Dimitri van den Bergh in the semis was still hugely impressive.

There is a nervousness about those that have to play her and in this case, it will be the winner of the first-round match between Krzyzstof Ratajksi and the big German Gabriel Clemens.

The Draw

The top half of the draw features two of dart’s current big three, world champion Price, his compatriot Jonny Clayton, who has enjoyed a great run the past 12 months, plus Dutch local hero Michael van Gerwen.

The other member of darts big three, Peter Wright, finds himself in the considerably softer bottom half of the draw, where the main threat would seemingly be Michael Smith, who looks like he is coming back into form.

The Scot is a 6/1 shot while his English rival is a far tastier 22/1, which given his win last week in the Players Championship is exceedingly tempting.

For Bully Boy to emerge victorious, he would need to overcome just three opponents, the first of which would be against Belgium’s Kim Huybrechts, who is ranked 33 in the world to Smith’s tenth.

Huybrechts is a rival who Smith has beaten on their last two meetings, the most recent of which came only one week ago in Barnsley.

On form, which admittedly he hasn’t been for some time now until recently, speedy Smith can beat anyone, and three victories will not be out of the question making 22/1 definitely worth your consideration.

That said, the big three of Price (1/3), Wright (6/1) and van Gerwen (3/1) — the latter of whom will have the luxury of home support — can never be ruled out. The same can be said for the player that is surely the player of the year, Jonny Clayton (8/1).

Fallon Sherrock Qualifies For 2022 Darts World Championships

Fallon Sherrock Qualifies For 2022 Darts World Championships

Fallon Sherrock Ally Pally

Fallon Sherrock and Lisa Ashton will both be featured at this Christmas’ World Darts Championship following their performance in the PDC Women’s Series success.

Sherrock made history at Alexandra Palace two years ago when she became the first woman ever to win a match in the competition after she beat Ted Evetts in that year’s opening round.

The Queen of the Palace then followed that up by knocking out the seeded Mensur Suljovic and was widely applauded for her achievements.

She now has a chance to repeat her success after qualifying for the 2022 World Championship from the PDC Women’s Series Order of Merit over the weekend, sealing one of the two spots on offer in this year’s event.

Darts Two Leading Ladies

Sherrock, who was the recent runner up to Michael van Gerwen in the Nordic Darts Masters, won three of the six Women’s Series events in her hometown of Milton Keynes last month. She then added two more victories during the second set of six events in Barnsley last Saturday where she averaged over 100 twice in the process.

Lisa Ashton beat Sherrock in Event Eight, which gave her a fourth Women’s Series event of the year. Coupled with her run to the final of Event Nine, where she lost to Sherrock, it helped secure her place at the Alexandra Palace event. Her appearance in the upcoming World Championships will be her third.

Ashton, 51, has herself been setting the pace and making history for female darters this year, her second as a PDC Tour Card Holder.

Another Televised First

At the UK Open, she became the first woman to average 100 in a televised match. Neither Sherrock nor Ashton can be overtaken on the PDC Women’s Series Order of Merit which guarantees their participation at the event, which will run over the festive period.

Ashton, known as The Lancashire Rose, also qualified for the Grand Slam of Darts alongside Sherrock following the completion of the PDC Women’s Series.

To secure qualification, she needed to top the Order of Merit from Events 7-12 or finish second behind Sherrock, an achievement that was unlocked with a victory over Anastasia Dobromyslova in the Event 10 final.

Sherrock and Ashton are dominating the world of women’s darts right now and have won six and five Women’s Series titles apiece. In terms of averages, Sherrock finished the series on 85.54 ahead of Ashton at 84.44 while they both recorded a pair of 100+ averages.

bet365 has priced up Sherrock at 300/1 to win the Darts World Championship outright, while her rival has been given odds of 1000/1 to do the same.

World Series of Darts Finals

The Grand Slam of Darts will take place on the 13th of November in Wolverhampton and run for nine days.

Up first is this weekend’s World Series of Darts Finals in Amsterdam. We will have darts betting tips for this televised event later in the week.

World number ten Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith and Kim Huybrechts will get the 2021 World Series underway on Friday the 29th of October. Taking place from October 29-31, the World Series of Darts Finals will see 24 of the world’s top stars in action at the AFAS Live.

The eight seeded players, based on World Series Order of Merit ranking, will all enter the action on Saturday, October 30 in round two, which will include Gerwyn Price, Michael van Gerwen, Fallon Sherrock and Peter Wright.

2021 World Grand Prix Darts Betting Tips

2021 World Grand Prix Darts Betting Tips

The eyes of darts fans around the world will be on Leicester next week when the Darts World Grand Prix gets underway on Sunday the 3rd of October. 

Last year, for reasons due to you know what, we were denied our annual trip to the Citywest in Dublin’s fair city and instead had to make do with the tourney taking place domestically behind closed doors at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry

The prestigious double start tournament will see 32 stars of the PDC battle it out across seven days for the corporation’s third oldest title and its £450,000 in prize money. World Number One Gerwyn Price will be the defending champion at the Morningside Arena in the East Midlands city.

The World Grand Prix Darts event began in 1998 and was designed to replace the previous World Pairs Tournament. Since 2000, it was held in Ireland right up until last year when, like many other events, it was switched to a domestic venue. 

World Grand Prix winner could be a surprise

Heading into the 2021 renewal, there is an openness about darts right now that wasn’t there pre-pandemic and it really feels as though this year’s winner really can come from anywhere. Of course, that anywhere could very well be Wales. From there, after all, hails reigning Grand Prix champ, world champ and global numero uno Gerwyn ‘The Iceman’ Price and his countryman Jonny Clayton

Last weekend, The Iceman helped himself to yet another title when he took down the Gibraltar Darts Trophy, not long after he lifted the first European Tour event of the year, the Hungary Darts Trophy, just weeks ago. He is very much the man to beat right now. As such, bet365 have priced him up as the 7/2 favourite to retain his title.

Has anyone in darts had as good of a year as Go Go Jonny the Ferret Clayton? The part-time plasterer for Carmarthenshire County Council is now the Darts Masters and Premier League of Darts champion, both of which he won after he, along with Price, won the 2020 Darts World Cup, an event which kicked the former Rugby player into new darting life.

Clayton now looks like a decent shout for any event he enters and because he is 13th on the Order of Merit, he can provide some pretty tasty prices too. bet365 has placed a rather generous 14/1 on his head which is not to be sniffed at.

Elsewhere, it would be unwise to rule out Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright, who has won the last two televised PDC events, albeit one in a two-player team tournament. That, of course, was the recent World Cup of Darts, which he took down with the help of big John ‘The Highlander’ Henderson, a win which came six weeks apart from the world number two’s excellent showing at the World Matchplay.

Ever the showman, Wright, perhaps more than anyone, has been transformed by having the fans back. World number two Snakebite has been priced up at 5/1 with bet365 to take down his third televised PDC title in a row.

As ever, a challenge is expected of the Green Machine, Mighty Michael van Gerwen who, after an astonishing 293 long and worrying days, has finally re-joined the ranks of the trophy winners after he claimed the Nordic Masters title a fortnight ago when he beat Fallon Sherrock in the final. 

Not so very long ago Mighty Mike looked near invincible and a shoo-in for just about any tourney he entered. That has not been the case of late, but his recent win did come in the absence of Gerwyn Price, who pulled out of the tournament with an elbow injury. Had he been involved in the event, things could have been very different and MVG might still be waiting for a trophy win. 

As we wind our way down towards the World Darts Championships in December, Mighty Mike will be looking to get himself back into that kind of form once again and this might well be the event to help him get there. 

Another darter to keep an eye on over the week is Belgian sensation Dimitri van den Bergh. The 2020 Matchplay champion looked almost unstoppable when attempting to defend his crown in July. It’s crazy how many nine-dart finishes The Dream Maker almost posted as he broke averaging records at the time.

In the end, he was undone by some dodgy doubles and an even better Peter Wright. If Snakebite can summon similar levels in Leicester then he could well be your man once again.
