If you agree, there is still time to take advantage of a new customer promotion from SportNation that would take Mighty Mike’s odds on price and take it all the way up to 33/1. Here’s how it works along with details of how the figure compares in the open markets.
Van Gerwen started the tournament at that 8/11 price and while some bookies have shortened after his first round display, SkyBet are still offering 8/11 as the best odds at the time of writing.
Behind the favourite, we have a gap to Gary Anderson at 6/1 with William Hill. That could be significant but the Scot has won this tournament twice and clearly can’t be ruled out. There are other options with Phil Taylor at a general 12/1 and Peter Wright at 16/1 but if you’re siding with Van Gerwen then here’s how the process works.
That money should clear straight away and then you can stake the fixed sum of £1.00 on Michael Van Gerwen to win the PDC World Darts Championship of 2018. Watch the action continue from North London and then, on New Year’s Day 2018, you will be paid as follows if MVG wins it.
If MVG wins the PDC worlds and the bet lands then you will be paid a total of £33.00 by SportNation. These will come as free bet tokens, referred to as Bonus Funds by this bookmaker and there are wagering requirements applicable.
To meet those requirements, place a series of bets equivalent to 5x the bonus amount in question. Those bets should be at minimum odds of 2.00 and you have up to 30 days in which to place them. Once that is complete, any profits are then made available for withdrawal.
Those are the main points to the offer but please check all terms and conditions to make sure you are happy before going ahead and remember, the offer is open until December 24, 2017.
Man to Beat
Michael Van Gerwen dropped a set on the way to winning his first round match with Christian Kist but still managed a three dart average above 106 against a spirited opponent. The tough part of the competition won’t begin until after Christmas but for anyone backing MVG for the title, the signs are encouraging.
Naturally there is no guarantee with this and there are plenty of challenges from Gary Anderson, Phil Taylor, Peter Wright and more but for anyone still waiting to commit to a bet on MVG, those odds of 33/1 should look very tempting.
