Phil’s Got The Power!
The European Championship begins on October 24th and it’s currently Michael van Gerwen that heads the betting at 9/4 to win his first title.
Last year’s winner, Adrian Lewis, will face Jelle Klaasen in his opening match and is currently priced at 12/1 to retain the title whilst last year’s runner up, and 2012 winner, Simon Whitlock, can be backed at 22/1 to go one better.
Phil Taylor has won the tournament on four occasions since it started in 2008 and The Power is currently 3/1 having been installed at 10/3 to win a record fifth title.
Punters are latching onto Phil Taylor as he has an excellent strike rate in the tournament.
World Championship runner-up, Peter Wright, is currently 28/1 alongside Robert Thornton and Michael Smith whilst Wes Newton, who was runner up in 2012, is currently priced at 80/1.
