Be warned! Darts experts are going to appear from beneath the cracks over the next 7 days and probably try and convince you their selections for the World Championship are banker bets.
Some publications will employ ex professionals to offer their opinion on the markets. But just because they once hit lots of 180s it doesn’t mean they are great at spotting value on oddschecker.
So be warned. I wanted to take this opportunity to give you a better idea of who you should be following ahead of, and during the PDC World Championship.
On The Oche is a premium darts betting tipster with 17 years of experience. He’s fairly pricy but he does offer a 14 day free trial, which to my knowledge is available at the start of the World Championship.
Tips might be thin on the ground in the early rounds so perhaps wait a few days before taking advantage of that offer to ensure you get free tips right up to the final.
Anon Darts Bets sits second in the tipster rankings here at Betting Kingdom and his service costs £50 for 3 months. His long term stats are showing a ROI of around 10% and he’s coming off a brilliant Players Championship.

Anon focuses on the 180s market which is one of the most enjoyable and infuriating things to bet on, across all sports.
Tips are derived from a statistical model he’s created and it’s very simple to follow. So if you are happy to pay for darts betting tips then this might be the best approach for you.
Top of that list is Sean Rafferty with a score of 81%. Just the one punter review to date for Raffo’s Tips titled “The King of Darts Tipping”. Sean’s tips are free and available via his Telegram channel, so it seems a no brainer to get involved.
The other 3 darts tipsters on the list all work for third party sites. Carl Fletcher and Chris Hammer share the responsibilities for Sporting Life. James Punt, another in good form shares his darts tips at TX Markets.
These guys are paid to provide content, so my advice would be to read their previews and pick your favourite selections. Backing all of their tips might not be the best approach, but that’s not to say they won’t find some real gems during the tournament.
The one site I would avoid is Racing Post as they seem to offer the responsibility to several different tipsters who primarily cover others sports. Steve Palmer being the main example. I’ve often found the tips on Racing Post to be more about views that long term profit, whether my hunch is correct, we will likely never know as they do a terrible job at sharing the profit/loss of their tipsters.
Hopefully this brief article will help you make a profit ahead of and during the PDC World Championship this December.
