Taylor to be best price for entire first day of World C’ship

| 13.12.2013

With the peak of the darting calendar just a short tungsten tickle away from beginning, Ladbrokes have unveiled a lucrative special offer to coincide with their sponsored Ladbrokes World Championship Darts event’s kick off.

On Friday 13th December, the first day of the competition, Ladbrokes will be offering the top price on Phil Taylor to win a 17th World Championship to all customers betting via a mobile or on a tablet device, for the entire day.

As if that offer wasn’t enough, there’s also the extremely tempting money back special where all losing outright flutters are refunded as a free bet should Taylor win the tournament.

It seems many Ladbrokes customers have taken that second sprinkling of good will as the perfect opportunity to back second favourite Michael Van Gerwen, who is priced at 3/1 behind the 10/11 Taylor, as the company reveals the Dutchman has received the most financial backing in the run-up to the tournament.

Jessica Bridge of Ladbrokes said: “The money suggests it’s a two-horse race this year. No matter what the price is punters will always back The Power, but Mighty Mike is hot on Taylor’s heels and it looks like we’ll have a repeat of last year’s final.”

For those looking to gain a slightly higher windfall from their punt, joint-fourth favourite and one-time Ladbrokes World Champion Raymond van Barneveld heads a trio of players priced at 25/1 along with Englishman James “The Machine” Wade and Aussie, Simon Whitlock.

Or, if multiple bets are more your thing, then why not try our 9/1 four-fold for the first day’s action which has both John Part and Dean Winstanley to progress to the second stage of the competition.

Be sure to check back with news.ladbrokes.com regularly though, as they’ll be an accumulator tip posted for ever day of Alexandra Palace action.
