Live on Sky Sports 1: Tue 20:15. Ladbrokes make Phil Taylor 4/5 to beat Michael van Gerwen in the PDC World Darts final
The Ally Pally crowd are just 6/1 to be thrilled in the final of the Ladbrokes World Darts Championship with a 9 dart finish according to the sponsor.
Following an electric night at the Palace when Michael van Gerwen came one dart away from defying odds of 50,000/1 with two consecutive perfect legs the bookies offer 25/1 that the feat happens again in the final, at any time.
van Gerwen, who admitted that in practice he hits around two 9 dart finishes a week took the sponsors for over £50,000 following his exploits with punters now keen to play up their winnings by backing him for the final despite him being the outsider at evens.
Phil Taylor heads into the match as the 4/5 favourite.
Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes told betrescue.com: “It’s been the costliest World Championship ever but by virtue of that also the most exciting. Punters have been quick to reinvest their nine dart winnings and fully expect Mighty Mike to wow the crowds again.”
