Mighty Mike big favourite to win at Minehead

Michael van Gerwen is odds-on at 8-11 with Coral to win the UK Open at Minehead ahead of the start of the tournament.

World champion Rob Cross is second best in the betting at 7/1. Former world champion Gary Anderson can also be backed at 7/1, while the tournament’s defending champion Peter Wright is 9/1.

“As always with the major tournaments, Michael van Gerwen is a red-hot favourite to win the UK Open for the third time in his career.

However, the FA Cup style of this tournament has thrown up some huge upsets in the past and there will no doubt be a few more this year,” said Coral’s John Hill.
