The never ending cycle of Darts tournaments continues this week, for on the 10th to the 18th of November the Grand Slam of Darts tournament will be in live play, and that PDC organised event is going to be as popular as ever with professional players, thanks in no small part to its huge prize fund
There is £450,000 up for grabs this year and a large £110,000 of that prize fund goes to the winner of the tournament, which is going to be held over at the Aldersley Leisure Village which if you didn’t know is in Wolverhampton.
What I will be doing today is taking a look at the dart players that are attracting support on the early betting markets, and those that are a little friendless too, so that you can make a decision if betting on the Grand Slam of Darts this year is something you do fancy doing.
As for just which betting site is offering the odds I will be quoting below, well they are available on the early betting markets over at the BetFred betting site, so do check that site out, but be aware that they are subject to change at any time.
Current Favourites to Win
You are going to recognise the names of the three current favourites to win this darts tournament, for they are three players that can always be relied on to deliver the goods so to speak when they are playing.
The first favourite and the one that is leading all betting markets to win this event is Michael Van Gerwen who can be backed at odds of 10/11, next we have Gary Anderson who is a fair bet too at 11/2 and then there is Peter Wright, of course and he is a steady 9/1 third favourite currently.
Other Players in With a Slim Chance of Winning
If you are put off for any reason betting on any of the above three favourites to win the Grand Slam of Darts in 2018 then there are of course plenty of other players that are worth backing at some much bigger odds too, and backing them each way will also see you getting some fair each-way terms over at the BetFred betting site who are paying to four positions!
Therefore, as to just which players are worth an each-way punt this year, well I do have to say that I personally like the look of the chances of Rob Cross who at 14/1 is worth a little bit of each-way interest to say the least!
There are some much bigger odds on offer on all other players, however the bigger those odds become the lower the players chances are of winning of course.
But a few other darts players that could be worth something of a speculative bet this year include players such as Mensur Suljovic who is 18/1, Michael Smith whose odds of 22/1 are sure to attract a few punters to back him each way and then there is James Wade at 25/1 and Glen Durrant at 33/1!
