Mighty Mike 6/5 fav to prevail in a sold-out 2019 World Championship Darts tournament

Tickets for the PDC World Championship Darts sponsored by William Hill went on sale this week.  40,000 tickets were reportedly sold within the first 36 hours as darting fans clambered to get a seat in London’s Alexandra Palace to see some of the world’s best darting action.  

The tournament starts on Thursday December 13th and continue across the Christmas period before culminating in the final on Tuesday January 1st.

Meanwhile supporters of two-time winner Michael van Gerwen (MVG) saw the Dutchman’s World Championship price drift alarmingly as suffered a shock first round elimination from the BetVictor World Matchplay tournament this week.  ‘Mighty Mike’ was trading as short as 1/25 to beat fellow countryman Jeffrey de Zwaan in that contest but he looked shadow of his former self throwing the ante-post betting market for the annual Blackpool event into disarray.

As for the ‘big one’, ‘Mighty Mike’ is now top-priced 6/5 (with Paddy Power) to take his third Wold Championship crown in the space of six years.  Gary Anderson, the 2015 & 2016 champion is 6/1 (William Hill) and the current title holder, Rob Cross, is also 6/1 with Betfred.


Sky Sports is at the prestige races

There’s some good news for horse racing fans with confirmation the free-to-view TV channel, At The Races, has signed a deal with U.S. racing authorities to broadcast, exclusively, the Kentucky Derby in a multi-year deal.

The news comes hot on the hooves of the announcement that racing from Ascot, including the Royal Meeting, will transfer from the pay-per-view Racing UK to the popular At The Races channel which is currently situated on channel 415 on the Sky TV platform.

However, plans are afoot for a change in identity as the channel which boasts Betfair, Coral, Ladbrokes, bet365 and William Hill as its principle ‘racing partners’ will be renamed Sky Sports Racing at the turn of the year and therefore become Sky’s eleventh dedicated sports channel.


Harry Kane for a second award?

England may not have finished in the top-three of the World Cup but Harry Kane now sits at the top of the betting for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year (top-priced 5/6 at Betfair).  Victory here would represent a second major trophy for the 24-year-old following his World Cup Golden Boot accolade.

In a year when multiple winner Andy Murray is under performing Lewis Hamilton may prove to be Kane’s chief rival.  The 2014 Sports Personality of the Year recipient is currently locked in a Hunt/Lauda type confrontation with Sebastian Vettel and this duel could spark the public’s imagination as the season draws to a close and make his current 16/1 price a guilt-edged investment.
