BoyleSports World Grand Prix Favourites
Gerwyn Price is the new favourite for the BoyleSports World Grand Prix at odds of 15/8 after coming through the two opening rounds of the tournament in Leicester.
In Round 1 Price overcame Noppert after his opponent missed the chance to take the opening set before the Welshman reeled off five consecutive legs to get his bid for a second World Grand Prix title off to a perfect start. The win saw him overtake Michael van Gerwen as favourite at the time after sponsor BoyleSports trimmed his odds into 11/4 from 10/3 for the title.
The 2021 PDC World Champion spoke to Abigail Davies for BoyleSports after the victory and admitted he needs to improve his starting doubles ahead of a second round clash with Krzysztof Ratajski, who accounted for James Wade on the opening night.
“My scoring game was alright in patches,” said Price. “But just my starting doubles – I need to stop thinking too much. I think that’s just first round jitters, so I will be a lot better in the second round. These are sprints, it’s first to three in the next round, so there’s a little bit more room for error and not so much pressure.”
The Wales native came into the tournament in great form so it’s no surprise that he has been cut into favouritism after his opening round win.
In the second-round he faced Krzysztof Ratajski (who had triumphed over James Wade in the first-round). They traded four big ton-plus checkouts, but Price proved too good winning out 3-0.
Not one to mince his words, Price following his victory didn’t speak kindly of his opponent.
✅ Gerwyn Price defeats Krzysztof Ratajski in straight sets.

In 2023 Price has most notably guided his country to success in the World Cup of Darts alongside Jonny Clayton. The pair made light work of Scotland in the final for a 10-2 victory and a second World Cup of Darts title.
The Iceman has also been going strong week-to-week too as he currently occupies 3rd spot in the PDC Players Championship order of merit.
Gerwyn Price won the BoyleSports World Grand Prix in 2020 and also made a final appearance at the event in 2021. He faces German Martin Schindler tonight for a place in the Semi-Final. This format suits the Welshman and his current form makes him the man to beat this week in Leicester.
The second favourite in the betting for the 2023 BoyleSports World Grand Prix is Michael Smith at odds of 3/1.
The PDC World Champion comes in behind only Price in the odds for World Grand Prix glory.
Smith is of course the reigning World Darts Champion having won the World Championship at the beginning of the year. The Englishman beat Michael van Gerwen 7-4 in that final with some incredible darts.
Bully Boy was for so long the ‘nearly man’ on the PDC. Bags of ability but just not converting that to wins on the biggest stage. Now it’s a different story.
Smith’s 2022 Grand Slam of Darts victory to go with that 2023 World Championship win means you can’t underestimate Smith in these big tournaments any longer.
Michael Smith has been backed down to 3/1 from 10/3 and originally 5/1 to put an indifferent history at the BoyleSports World Grand Prix behind him by winning the tournament in Leicester this week.
BoyleSports has cut the odds on the World Champion after he cruised to a 3-0 victory over Brendan Dolan on Wednesday, booking a Grand Prix quarter final date for the first time in his career.
Smith told BoyleSports he was “over the moon” to get past the second round in the event for the first time: “It’s one tournament that has really got on my nerves,” he admitted. “But hopefully in four more days it’s a tournament I love, with a title. I’ve just got to keep focused.”
Smith faces 2023 UK Open winner Andrew Gliding for a place in the Semi-Final against either Gerwyn Price or Martin Schindler
Luke Humphries is currently third favourite at 10/3 having been backed from 5/1 from 8/1 after his opening round victory over Northern Ireland’s Daryl Gurney.
In the second-round against Luke Woodhouse, he didn’t drop a set again, whitewashing him 3-0 to book his place in the Quarter-Final against Peter Wright.
‘Cool Hand Luke’ is the number 6 ranked player in the world the highest-ranked player not have a PDC major. He looks well placed to go close in in Leicester .
If he overcomes Wright in the Quarter-Final he will play either Chris Dobey or Joe Cullen for a place in the final.
Humphries has been in form of late and could be a dark horse in this competition. The 28-year-old made it to the semi-finals of the World Matchplay this July but was narrowly beaten by Jonny Clayton 17-15 in that semi-final.
Ahead of the Quarter-Finals Lawrence Lyons, Spokesperson for BoyleSports said: “Van Gerwen’s exit leaves Gerwyn Price and Michael Smith vying for favouritism, but the likes of Luke Humphries and Chris Dobey are taking some shrewd money so it’s really up for grabs over the weekend.”
