Monday PDC World Darts Championship 2023 Betting Tips
Price’s match against Woodhouse or Omelchenko is mouthwatering. “The Iceman” is unlikely to lose to either Woodhouse or Omelchenko, so you may want to focus on set betting once the odds are released.
The betting on Price isn’t necessarily the reason to follow the match. Price is currently the second favourite to win the PDC World Darts Championship 2023 according to leading bookmakers. Price’s performance will be an indication of what to expect from him throughout the tournament.
Monday’s fixtures have plenty of matches close in odds. Perhaps the most intriguing is the match between Niels Zonneveld at odds of 8/15 against Lewy Williams at odds of 6/4. Williams is the underdog but is ranked No 70 in the world. Zonneveld is ranked No 76 and is the favourite going into the match.
Williams has never gotten past the second round of the PDC World Championship. However, this could be the first time he does.
Ritchie Edhouse and David Cameron will also play on Monday. Bookmakers have Edhouse at odds of 4/7 and Cameron at odds of 11/8. Cameron is not ranked going into the World Darts Championship. The Canadian reached the last 16 of the tournament in 2019. He has spent a lot of time on the PDF circuit.
Edhouse is ranked No 49 in the world. He twice previously reached the second round of the competition. Cameron has the chance to spring a major surprise with an upset win. He could at least take on set.
Monday's PDC World Darts Championship Prediction
Once again, we are excited to see “The Iceman” Gerwyn Price start his PDC World Darts Championship 2023 campaign. Price will face Luke Woodhouse or Vladyslav Omelchenko, and should prevail with a win. Matchday No 1 saw Peter Wright play a second-round match against Mickey Mansell, and won the fixture 3-0. It was the first 3-0 victory of the tournament.
Price should post a 3-0 win as well. Odds for Price’s match against Woodhouse or Omelchenko will be posted on Sunday.
You may want to build an accumulator with the favourites on Monday. However, based on the upset between Grant Sampson and Keane Barry on day No 1, you may think against building an acca solely with the favourites.
Set betting may be the ideal way to find profit on day No 5. Danny Jansen and Paolo Nebrida could go over 3.5 sets. The match is at odds of ½ to finish with over 3.5 sets, while it is at odds of 6/4 to end under 3.5 sets. Our betting tips prediction is for Jansen and Nebrida to go over 3.5 sets.
