Peter Wright Odds Cut To Defend World Darts Championship Title Next Year

Peter ‘Snakebite’ Wright won the World Darts Championship for a second time on Monday night as he defeated Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith 7-5 at the Ally Pally.

We priced up the 2022/23 World Darts Championship on Tuesday morning and it didn’t take punters long to get behind the Scottish star in the betting again…

With Wright already backed into 5/1 from 6/1 to successfully defend his title next year.

Gerwyn Price is the 9/2 joint favourite alongside Michael van Gerwen, who saw his hopes of a fourth title dashed due to a positive test for COVID-19.

‘The Iceman’ will be seeking revenge after his quarter-final exit to Michael Smith, while his Welsh buddy Jonny Clayton is 7/1 to land his first world title at the beginning of 2023. The ‘Bully Boy’ is 9/1 to go one better having come up short in two finals, with 2018 champion Rob Cross and multiple winner Gary Anderson both 25/1 shots.

Callan Rydz enjoyed a fantastic tournament this year reaching the quarter-finals and is 33/1, while fellow quarter-finalist Luke Humphries is 40/1.
