World Series of Darts Finals Betting Tips And Predictions 2021

World Series of Darts Finals Betting Tips And Predictions 2021

Live PDC action returns to the AFAS Live in Amsterdam this weekend for the seventh staging of the World Series of Darts Finals.

The final will take place this Sunday – 31st of October – which is Halloween which will hopefully inspire Peter Wright to dress up appropriately.

24 players will make up the field which will consist of Michael van Gerwen, one of seven Dutchmen in the event.

Mighty Mike has won this event four times and, chucking on home soil, will be confident of wrestling back the trophy from its current holder, the world number one Gerwyn Price.

Those two both find themselves in the top half of the draw along with Price’s fellow Welshman, Jonny Clayton who has enjoyed a fantastic 12 months on the oche.

The considerably softer bottom half of the draw features the other member of darts big three, Peter Wright.

There are eight seeded players in the event – Gerwyn Price, Peter Wright, Michael van Gerwen, Jonny Clayton, Dimitri van den Bergh, Gary Anderson, Madars Razma and Fallon Sherrock – who will all join in the fun on day two.

Opening Night

There are plenty of mouth watering encounters on the opening night in the Dutch capital, not least Krzysztof Ratajski and German Giant Gabriel Clemens who has been struggling to find his best form of late.

That’s a tough match for both players but I expect the Polish Eagle, who made it to the quarter finals of this event the last time it was held here, to just about edge it.

The winner of that match will take on second seed Fallon Sherrock in the round two when things begin to heat up.

The Queen of the Palace recently booked her place in the 2022 PDC World Darts Championships after she, along with Lisa Ashton, dominated the latest Women’s Series in Barnsley.

The Lancashire Rose will also be attending the Ally Pally in December while both players will represent at the upcoming Grand Slam of Darts next month.

Queen Of The Palace

Sherrock gained her seeding and buy in to round two on account of her runner up place in the Nordic Masters in Copenhagen a few weeks back.

On that occasion, she only needed to win two matches to get to the final after her quarter final opponent world number one Gerwyn ‘The Iceman’ Price withdrew from the competition with injury.

Her semi final win over the Dream Maker Dimitri van den Bergh and the manner of the comeback that inspired it showed she can still mix it with the best.

You can feel that there is a nervousness about the men that have to play her, something Ratajksi or Clemens will need to overcome.

Hurricane To Do The Bullying

Another key opening night battle will be the one between Kim Huybrechts and Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith.

For Bully Boy to win the trophy he needs to take on and beat three opponents starting with The Hurricane on Friday night where I can see an upset on the cards.

The Belgian is ranked 33 in the world to Smith’s tenth and Smith has won on their last two meetings the most recent of which came only one week ago in Barnsley but, save for a Players Championship win a week ago in Barnsley, he hasn’t been in decent form some time now and Huybrechts can capitalise on that.

World Matchplay champion Peter Wright will await the winner of that match and Snakebite has twice finished runner up in this event and can be backed at 11/2 to go one step further this year and be crowned champion of another live televised PDC title.

Michael van Gerwen, who recently ended his long trophy drought when he took down the Nordic Masters a fortnight ago, looked to be in good shape in the recent Super Series even if he did come away from the with no titles to his name.

Mighty Mike is joint 16/5 favourite and will play the winner of the match between Maik Kuivenhoven and World Cup champion big John ‘The Highlander’ Henderson.

Razzmatazz

The eighth seeded Latvian Madars Razma was also in good form last week. Razzmatazz became only the second player to hit nine darters on consecutive days on the Pro Tour after Phil Taylor.

He will take on the winner of the match between 2018 World Series of Darts champion James Wade and Mervyn King.

Those two have met each other 52 times in the past with King shading events on 27 occasions including their last six games, a run he will hope to stretch to seven.

Of course, all eyes will be on the world champion, world number one and reigning champion, Gerwyn Price who has been priced up at 16/5.

Others may prefer Jonny Clayton who can be backed at 8/1 and looks a good shout for any competition he enters right now.

The Ferret has a tough opener, however, playing the winner of night one’s Nathan Aspinall Vincent van der Voort match up.

Price, ever the pantomime villain, will be taking on someone with home support when he steps out to play one of Jeffrey de Zwaan and Dirk van Duijvenbode on Saturday.
