The top bookmaker UK has this tournament as a three-horse race. Gerwyn Price and Michael van Gerwen are neck and neck as equal favorites to win on November 20th, while Peter Wright is just behind. Both of these favorites are past winners, with Price winning last year and Wright the runner-up.
Before we break these odds down any further, let’s look at the context of this event.
Understanding the PDC Grand Slam of Darts
Organized by the Professional Darts Corporation, the Grand Slam of Darts began in 2007 as a way of crowning an ultimate champion in the sport.
In 2015 it became a ranked event; however, it has been a hotly contested event since its inception. The introduction of ranking points has made the Grand Slam of Darts even more exciting for players and fans. Historically, a handful of players have dominated this event:
- 2015-2017 — Michael van Gerwyn
- 2018-2019, 2021 — Gerwyn Price
- 2020 — Jose de Sousa
The man to beat at this tournament is Gerwyn Price, who has won three of the past four years at the Grand Slam of Darts.
2022 Grand Slam of Darts Betting Tips
For those that are looking to bet on the 2022 Grand Slam of Darts, here are a couple of our top predictions:
Gerwyn Price to Win @ 5.00 (4/1)
The conservative bet to make ahead of this tournament is for Gerwyn Price to pick up yet another Grand Slam of Darts crown next weekend.
Since 2018, Price has dominated this event, winning every year except 2020, when Jose de Sousa came out of nowhere to claim the title. Right now, Price is sitting in the No.1 position in the PDC Order of Merit and is the form player of 2022 in the darts game. Add all of these factors together, and it’s hard to bet against Gerwyn Price picking up his fourth Grand Slam of Darts win this year.
With online odds of 5.00 (4/1), there’s an acknowledgement that the nature of darts means upsets can still happen, regardless of a player’s form. However, Price is looking strong, and a bet on the Welshman to win is still lucrative.
Peter Wright to Win @ 7.50 (13/2)
Three times in the past five years, Peter Wright has fallen agonizingly short of claiming his first Grand Slam of Darts title.
Twice Wright has been defeated by Gerwyn Price in the Grand Slam of Darts final in 2019 and 2021, while he also lost in the final to Michael van Gerwen in 2017. With Wright nipping at the heels of Price in the PDC Order of Merit, sitting in second place by the slimmest of margins, will this be the year that Peter Wright finally gets the monkey off his back and becomes a Grand Slam winner?
The chances of such a quality player falling short for the fourth time are unlikely, so betting in favor of a Wright victory here is not unreasonable at all. With odds of 7.50 (13/2) at live sports bookmakers, it has a healthy return too.
Grand Slam of Darts 2022 – Bonus Pick
For those who fancy taking a bit of a shot in the dark to try and score a big betting bonus, here’s our high-risk, high return to make on the Grand Slam of Darts this year:
Raymond van Barneveld to Win @ 151.00 (150/1)
Sure, Raymond van Barneveld is currently sitting at No.50 in the world and hasn’t been in the recent winners’ circle.
However, rewind the clock a decade, and van Barneveld was king of the castle here at the Grand Slam of Darts. Having defeated Michael van Gerwen for the title in this very event, and being one of the most decorated darts players of all time, Raymond van Barneveld is worth a cheeky punt. He may be past his prime and no longer throwing the way he used to, but there’s something of the champion spirit that is never lost in a player, regardless of age or form.
As long as van Barneveld is in the event, which he is, there’s always a chance he’ll rekindle his old ways and storm to the title.
