Belgium Are Each Way Value In The Betting For The World Cup Of Darts

The World Cup of Darts returns on Thursday as the three-day tournament features 32 teams battling it out for glory in a straight knockout format in Germany, and Belgium are tipped to cause something of a stir in Frankfurt...

  • Belgium have reached three World Cup semi-finals in the past four years
  • England have won four of the six editions of the World Cup (Netherlands won the other two)

The Favourites

It is the Netherlands who head into the World Cup as 6/5 favourites (Bet Victor) as they bid to win the tournament for a third time. Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld will again join forces for their country after winning the title in 2014 before reaching the final last year.

The pair were beaten in the 2016 final by England, who must do without the talismanic figure of Phil Taylor this year. The retiring Taylor will be replaced by Dave Chisnall, who finished the Premier League season in electric form, and Adrian Lewis, who hasn't been quite so impressive. England have won four of the six editions of the World Cup, including the past two in Frankfurt, but can Lewis raise his game in the absence of his old mate Taylor?

England are 6/1 for the title (Ladbrokes) but they are in the same bottom-half of the draw as the Netherlands and that looks a particularly tricky section of the draw to call, particularly with Northern Ireland, who have made the semi-finals in two of the past four years, potentially lying in wait for the Dutch in the last-eight.

Scotland's Time To Shine?

It is Scotland who are the number one seeds for this year's renewal as they boast the world's second and third ranked players in Gary Anderson and Peter Wright respectively. There is very little love lost between the pair but they did reach the final together in 2015 and they have been in good form, with Wright impressing before blowing his chance of Premier League glory in the final recently and Anderson winning the Dubai Masters last week.

However, the Scots are plenty short enough at 7/4 (Ladbrokes) and we prefer to side with a nation whose pairing regularly go far in this tournament together.

Belgium Offer Value

The Huybrechts brothers, Ronny and Kim, have consistently been a force to be reckoned with at the World Cup as the Belgium team have reached at least the quarter-finals during each of the past five years.

They have made the semi-finals in three of their past four visits, including one final appearance, and they rank as tremendous each-way value at 40/1 (Betway). They are in the top-half of the draw so would need to overcome Scotland but that might not be so fanciful in this format and they are surely the value play.
