Betting Odds for Premier League Darts in 2024: What to Expect

The 2024 Premier League Darts tournament will take place between Thursday, 1st February and Thursday, 23rd May. It’s set to be proving grounds time for Luke Littler, who will enter the tournament aged 17 – making him the youngest player to participate in the league.

Betting Odds for Premier League Darts: Players to Watch

If you’re looking up betting odds for Premier League Darts, here are the eight players you’ll want to keep an eye on:

  • Luke Humphries
  • Michael van Gerwen
  • Luke Littler
  • Gerwyn Price
  • Rob Cross
  • Michael Smith
  • Nathan Aspinall
  • Peter Wright

Premier League Darts Betting: Who is Luke Humphries?

They call him ‘Cool Hand Luke’ – and there’s a good reason or two for that! Luke Humphries is PDC World Number One, and he’s got 13 titles under his belt, five of them televised. Given his rise to prominence in recent years, this year’s league could well be his time to shine. And the odds seem to be on his side. However, he’s up against some seriously tough competition.

Premier League Darts Betting: Who is Luke Littler?

Luke Littler is the youngest player ever to enter Premier League Darts, but he has already wowed the crowds at just 17. At the PDC World Darts Championship, he came runner-up to Cool Hand Luke – it’s little wonder that he’s already earned an explosive nickname, ‘The Nuke’. Luke The Nuke is one of three big favourites to take home the tournament. If Littler pulls this off, it’ll be a major upset – but his odds really aren’t bad!

Premier League Darts Betting: Who is Michael Van Gerwen?

‘Mighty Mike’ has claimed more than 150 titles in his career. Van Gerwen has finished with nine darts in TV tournaments several times – he’s certainly a force to be reckoned with. However, he’s PDC World Number Two to Cool Hand Luke – meaning that he might just have met his match.

Premier League Darts Betting: Who is Gerwyn Price?

Gerwyn Price is known to darts fans as ‘The Iceman’, and he’s picked up some impressive titles over the years – televised and otherwise. He’s ranking at Number Five in the PDC World right now, meaning that he’s going to be an interesting player to watch at this year’s Premier League. But does Price have what it takes to knock out some of the best darts players of all time? We’ll find out soon enough.

Other Players and Betting Odds for Premier League Darts

Other players in the running who you’ll want to look into via betting odds for Premier League Darts include Rob Cross, who ranks World Number Six, Michael ‘Bully Boy’ Smith, the World Number Three, ‘The Asp’ – Nathan Aspinall – who’s ranked Number Four, and ‘Snakebite’ himself, Peter Wright. Wright is, according to some odds, the rank outsider in the competition. As the oldest player in the lineup, he might not be your first pick. However, stranger things have happened, and he’s ranked Number Eight for a reason!
