How to bet on darts

With more darts events than ever the bookies have introduced a good number of darts betting markets in recent years, from tournament betting to individual matches, there are many wagering options available.

How darts betting works

Winner – There are no draws in darts matches making backing the winner as simple as it gets.

Correct score – With the winner of a darts match being the first player to win a specified number of sets, the correct score betting market allows you to bet on the final score in sets of that match.

Handicap betting – This involves backing the match winner, but with a plus or minus handicap of a number of sets or legs. So a favourite who is short odds in the outright match winner market could be worth backing with a -1 set handicap, for instance.

Over/under – Simply backing whether a match will contain greater or fewer than the specified number of sets or legs, usually stated in half sets/legs to avoid a tie.

Tournament outrights – as well as backing the outright winner of a particular tournament you also have the option to bet on players who you think will make the final.

170 checkout – In this bet you pick the player (or players) you think will achieve the maximum checkout of 170 in a given tournament.

Highest three-dart average – This is a bet on which player will have the highest three dart average over the course of a tournament.

Darts can be a particularly good sport to indulge in a spot of in-play betting as even when a player goes into a big lead and looks to be throwing well there is a tendency for matches to swing the other way.

Also, doing your research on the current form of players coming into a tournament will usually pay dividends. A former star who is fading up against a fearless rookie could be an opportunity to back the newcomer at big odds for the match and for the tournament outright.

Overall darts is a great sport to bet on as it’s exciting and can provide a great opportunity for you to score a bulls eye of your own.
