World Series of Darts Finals 2022 Betting Tips And Predictions

2022 World Series of Darts betting tips

The eighth staging of the PDC World Series of Darts Finals reaches its conclusion this weekend as a 24-player field that includes the likes of Michael van Gerwen, Peter Wright, Gerwyn Price as well as defending champion Jonny Clayton head to the AFAS Live in Amsterdam who will be hosting the event for the second year in a row and third time overall.

The 2022 Jack’s World Series of Darts Finals will take place from September 16 – 18 with both an afternoon and an evening session on Sunday and live coverage available on ITV 4. The draw has been made and already we have an intriguing opening round tie between the recently demoted world number two Peter Wright and Women’s World Matchplay champion Fallon Sherrock.

The winner of that match, which really should be Snakebite, will take on third seed Michael Smith.

Returning Champion

Elsewhere, last year’s winner Jonny Clayton is laying in wait for the victor of the clash between World Cup of Darts winner Simon Whitlock of Australia and UK Open champion Danny Noppert, who is returning to his home nation for this event where home advantage and crowd favouritism could well make the difference as to who progresses. 

Whitlock’s Darts World Cup winning partner Damon Heta faces Queensland Darts Masters semi-finalist Gordon Mathers in an all-Australian affair. The lucky winner of this will walk into local favourite and four-time champion Michael van Gerwen. Heta should be the man to make it through this one and face Mighty Mike.

The winner of both the Nordic Darts Masters and Dutch Darts Masters, Dimitri van den Bergh, has been made the top seed and will await the winner of the tie between Ryan Joyce and USA number one Danny Baggish. Any win for Baggish really would be a shock so I’ll stick with Relentless in this one.

New World Number One

In an effort to repeat his 2020 victory newly promoted world number one Gerwyn Price, who won the New Zealand Darts Masters in August, will get his season off to a start against either Canadian Matt Campbell or, as is far more likely, Dutch veteran Vincent van der Voort.

2018 champion James Wade will face the winner of the Leonard Gates, Devon Petersen match, while you would expect Dave Chisnall to come through his opening round match against Jamie Hughes. Finally, I am not expecting any shocks as Haupai Puha takes on Dirk van Duijvenbode with the Dutch Aubergenious predicted to move on to play Gary Anderson on Saturday.

Second Round

With many of the game’s leading lights not playing until Saturday, there will many eyes on Peter Wright’s battle with Fallon Sherrock on day one. We have seen many top players wobble when sharing an oche with the Queen of the Palace, but Snakebite is top quality and as long as he keeps his head he should move on to a very tough opponent in Michael Smith.

Bully Boy could very well represent the end of the line for Wright, and I think the outright 9/1 offered on the St Helens star is worth taking. Elsewhere the usual suspects – Gerwyn Price, Michael van Gerwen and Jonny Clayton – are naturally in with a chance and short-priced accordingly.

But it’s the Dream Maker Dimitri van den Bergh who really catches the eye this weekend in the Netherlands. The Belgian, who moved in with Wright for almost three months at the start of the pandemic, is in the middle of a feud with Snakebite right now following van den Bergh’s win over the Scotsman at the Matchplay in July.

Surgery And Sickness

Since then, Wright has undergone surgery to remove his gallbladder forcing him to miss a trio of World Series of Darts events in Australia and New Zealand, which opened up a space in those tournaments for his former friend. 

Snakebite returned to action at the Hungarian Darts Trophy, won by Joe Cullen by the way, earlier this month and where he again blanked the Dream Maker when their paths crossed this time in Budapest as opposed to Blackpool

The pair met last week in Sunday’s German Darts Open final in Jena where relations seemed to improve a little with Snakebite insisting that van den Bergh, who also came across unwell during the latter stages of his quarter-final win against Krzysztof Ratajski, is the future of darts.

Wright beat the Belgian 8 – 6 to lift his seventh European Tour crown and first since 2017. Along the way, Snakebite also defeated Raymond van Barneveld, Jonny Clayton, Ross Smith and Joe Cullen. But the Dream Maker battled through his illness to make the final and should be free of it now, making him a very dangerous opponent and potential champion as he looks to get one over on his old roommate.

Frequently Asked Questions: How Do I Budget For Sports Betting?

Frequently Asked Questions: How Do I Budget For Sports Betting?

Do you want to know how to work out your betting budget? Well we’re here to tell you that it’s one of the best things you can do.

Darts fans often like to place a wager on a big tournament. And maybe your interests move out of darts and into other areas, like other sports, bingo, casino or poker. If you add up all of those bets, it could turn out to be quite a pretty penny.

As long as you aren’t a problem gambler, placing the odd bet is fine. But of course, you need to make sure you can afford it. And that’s why it’s so important to work out your betting budget.

Frequently Asked Questions: How do you work out your betting budget?

What is the first thing I need to do to work out my gambling budget?

First things first, figure out how much you spend in total on gambling. This could be per week, month or year. Remember, be honest with yourself. Look at all angles of this, from sports, casino, poker, bingo. Online and offline. Everything you spend counts.

Some months you might spend more or less. Best to work out the average over a period of time to see how much you tend to spend. It’s easy to find out your transaction history on online betting sites, just go to your account for the rundown.

Then for offline spends, take a close look at your bank statements and receipts to add up your spends there.

How do I work out my disposable income?

The amount you spend on your gambling budget depends heavily on your disposable income. To figure out what that is, you’ve got to add up your gross income (after taxes). Then you also need to take out major living expenses, including rent/mortgage, bills, grocery shopping, insurance, pension, utilities, loan repayments, childcare, education fees, and all the other non-negotiables you spend money on.

Then add up all your discretionary spends. This includes money you spend on hobbies, gym memberships, cinema trips, socializing, going to restaurants. All that fun stuff.

And you’ve also got to figure out how much you want to save every week, month or year. Remember, everyone should aim to have 3-6 months of savings readily accessible in case of an emergency. Especially if you’ve got a big expense on the horizon or you want to splash out on something in the future.

What you’re left with is the absolute maximum you could spend on gambling. But this isn’t what your gambling budget should be, necessarily. Add a little bit more into your pension fund and savings until you’re left with a figure you’re comfortable with.

Get the help you need with a gambling problem

Even if you never spend over your gambling budget, it’s still possible to have a gambling problem. It’s a scary reality, but it’s true.

The good news is that there are lots of professional organizations that can help. In the United States, you can contact the National Council on Problem Gambling on the phone at 1800 522 4700 or online. If you’re in the United Kingdom, you can talk to Be Gamble Aware at 0808 8020 133 or online.

Alternatively, there are lots of other organizations around the world that you get help from.

7 Things You Should Know About Time Outs In Online Gambling

7 Things You Should Know About Time Outs In Online Gambling

Online gambling time outs might seem a little confusing at first, but really they’re not.

Whether this is the first time you’ve ever heard of them or you’ve been thinking about taking one yourself, we hope these 7 facts will help illuminate things for you.

1. You can’t place bets or deposit during a time out

This might seem pretty obvious, but during the time that you’ve chosen to take a break, you can’t place any wagers on your online gambling site.

And you also can’t deposit to fund your account during this time either.

2. Online gambling time outs are short breaks

Unlike self-exclusion, online gambling time outs are designed to be short breaks, after which you typically resume gambling.

3. Typically, a time out is between 24 hours and 30 days long

Depending on your online gambling site, a time out last anywhere from a day to 30 days.

4. You can also set custom and recurring time outs

Now this is a feature we love. In many online gambling sites, you can decide to set your own custom time outs. For example, it could start on a Monday morning and finish up on a Friday evening, for those who don’t want to gamble during the working week. And it can be recurring so it always starts and ends at the same time every week. Very handy.

5. There’s no way to reverse a time out

Once you’ve chosen a time out, you can’t cancel it. The only way to gamble again is to wait until the time period has lapsed.

6. You can withdraw whenever during an online gambling time out

It’s really handy that you can withdraw whenever you want during an online gambling time out. It’s not like your available funds are locked up. Simply log in and get out however much you need.

7. Time outs are for everyone

As you can see, time outs are handy responsible gaming tools that you can set to suit you. It’s a really smart way of time (and budget) management and keeping it straight in your head when you want to gamble and when you don’t.

Whether you set a custom time out for the working week, like we previously discussed, or you set one in the run up to a vacation to save or for any other reason at all, it’s a great idea to set a formal time out.

Just try it out and you can see how it works for you.

Get the help you need if you think you have a gambling problem

While online gambling time outs are brilliant for people who want to take a casual break from gambling, they aren’t designed to tackle a gambling problem.

If you think you have a gambling problem or you’re worried about a loved one, you need to get help from professional organizations. They are equipped to guide you or your loved one through dealing with a gambling addiction.

There are many excellent resources all over the world, including the National Council on Problem Gambling in the USA. As well as brilliant online resources, you can also phone them directly at 1800 522 4700.

In the United Kingdom, you can call 0808 8020 133 or visit the Be Gamble Aware website for help. And if you’re outside of the USA or the UK, there are lots of other organizations all over the world that are ready to help you.
