PDC World Championship: Superb 7/2 for MvG v Taylor final
Holly Thackeray | December 16, 2015
Fancy naming the 2016 PDC World Darts Championship finalists?
Coral have really rolled out the red carpet for customers, with a host of cracking winter markets available for the upcoming World Darts Championship.
A current star special worth snapping up while you can is a sublime 7/2 price for giants, and two title favourites, Michael van Gerwen and Phil Taylor to face off in the final. Punters can peruse our Name the Finalists section and mix and match potential pairings to their hearts’ content, but here is why we think it’s best to jump on this offer, enhanced generously from 11/4, now.
Regular crown contenders
With Taylor the all-time great and dominant force in darts over the past few decades versus emerging super power Van Gerwen, there are always fireworks.
The prolific pair have amazingly already met in 13 PDC finals, with three of those premier events, and this fixture looks great value to be repeated for a 14th time, a mere two months after their last Grand Slam of Darts set-to in November.
In fact, these two tungsten titans have wrestled twice at the final hurdle for trophies across 2015, with four frays as the last two across 2014.
Mighty Mike has snatched several of previously imperious The Power’s favourite titles, leaving the Englishman now holding no majors, meaning there would be plenty of venom in this darting dust-up, should it occur.
These darts juggernauts have expectedly been in the thick of Alexandra Palace oche action over the past few world championships too, with Taylor runner-up last time out and MvG featuring in two of the previous three finals, including once squaring-up to The Power. So, it’s tough to imagine this year without either at the business end.
Stupendous supporting stats
Furthermore, these couple of PDC superstars have both present and past history in their favour for this fantastic bet, and it is simpler to start with Taylor’s extensive World Championship roll call.
With two BDO World Championships first under his belt, The Power has gone on to claim 14 of the 22 PDC editions since their inception in 1994, appearing in a whopping 18 finals.
So, surely the 16-time champion of the world will fancy his 4/1 chances of a repeat, after coming within one agonising leg of last year’s silverware.
While, Mighty Mike is much more fancied at 11/10 after an astonishing run of four trophy triumphs from the last five televised tournaments and, crucially for this tip, appearing in all five of the same previous finals.
With such pedigree and form between this duo of darts superstars, 7/2 for both to battle in the grand finale looks even tastier the more you delve into their past.
