The most ardent of darts fans are convinced that Michael Van Gerwen can do no wrong, and if you have been watching him play at any of the numerous darts tournaments he has been taking part in this year he is certainly a man in-form!
However, taking a look at the upcoming World Grand Prix darts tournament, there are plenty of people that are of the mindset that he is going to continue with his amazing run of luck, or should I say skill and win that tournament outright and probably with great ease too.
There has been no end of money pouring in for him at betting sites such as BetFred, and a quick glance over their early betting markets on the World Grand Prix shows that he is currently the even money favourite to win this year.
But there is never any telling whether he is going to remain at the top of his form, and he does have plenty of excellent and highly skill and talented players to beat to make his way right through to the final, and with that in mind below are some of the other players that could be worth backing this year.
Could Mensur Suljovic Land a Surprise?
If you are thinking of betting on any other player taking part in the 2018 running of the World Grand Prix darts tournament, then wit Michael Van Gerwen being the favourite and with such low odds associated with him winning this year, there is plenty of value to be had on all other players for sure.
One player that could land something of a major surprise is of course Mensur Suljovic, and if you do think he has any chance what s ever of winning, then place your bets on him before his first round matches as by doing so you can get odds of 20/1 on him right now over at the BetFred betting site.
Back to Win or Each-Way
You are of course free to back any darts player to win this tournament outright or back them each-way and BetFred do offer some of the best each-way terms, those being one third of the win odds for first or second place.
That could of course mean that it is prudent to back the likes of Gary Anderson at his current odds of 6/1 or even take a chance that Peter Wright at 7/1 or Rob Cross will up their game and come out on top and if Rob Cross is the player you think could land a surprise his odds of winning are currently appealing at 8/1!
I doubt there are any other players that could possibly win this year, but having said that who knows, it could finally be the turn or players such as Michael Smith at 25/1 or even the often overlooked player that is Daryl Gurney at 33/1 or there is also the chance that Adrian Lewis who could win this year at his huge odds of 40/1!
