An Early Glance at the 2024-25 PDC World Championship Odds


The excitement is already building for this season’s PDC World Darts Championship. Although it’s still nine months away, darts fans and bettors alike are eager to get an early glimpse of the odds to try and pinpoint value among those who’ve started the year in fine form.

We’ll explore the latest odds covering the bookies’ favourites, as well as some of the possible dark horses based on recent results and performances.

It’s perhaps no surprise to anyone that 17-year-old sensation Luke Littler is currently at the top of the betting markets. After losing to Luke Humphries in the 2023-24 final, most bookies think he can go one better and claim his first world title next time around.

Littler is priced as the 7/2 favourite with BetVictor, a reputable, historic and now global bookmaker. Established in 1946, it has a firm handle on the darting world. It was originally founded by William Chandler, the proprietor of Walthamstow Greyhound Stadium, a track in East London. It was taken on by Victor Sr. and then Victor Jr., before it was acquired by entrepreneur, Michael Tabor. Today, the brand has a busy online sportsbook as well as an online casino offering a variety of classic table games and slots to its global user base, from the UK to New Zealand. It also happens to have one of the leading promotions for free spins no wagering in NZ, which acts as a convenient test run of industry-leading games like Big Bass Splash. This global service works well for darts' expanding fan base, as players around the world are able to bet on their sport.

Humphries is second favourite at 9/2. The defending champion had a relatively low-key start to the 2024 season, with only four matches won across the opening five nights of the Premier League. Michael van Gerwen has won three out of the opening five Premier League nights and is flying at the top of the table. The Dutchman is 5/1 at present and arguably represents the best value for the 2024-25 PDC World Championship as of March.

At a current price of 20/1, Stephen Bunting is one to watch this year. In February, Bunting overcame Michael van Gerwen in a thrilling final to win the Cazoo Darts Masters, securing his first televised PDC title.

Ryan Searle is another player who has found top form already this early into the 2024 season. Searle has started the Pro Tour schedule like a house on fire, reaching three finals already this year. He landed the PDC Players Championship 3 by defeating his practice partner, Gary Anderson. He’s currently priced as long as 66/1 for the World Championship which will almost certainly shorten if his current form continues.

You’d also be hard-pressed not to consider James Wade at long odds of 80/1, given his ability to grind out results on the biggest stage.

Although it might seem a little early to be running the rule over the next potential darts world champion, the sport is getting increasingly more traction and exposure.
