Essential Rules When Betting On Premier League Darts

There are many different rules you should follow if you want to be successful when betting on Premier League Darts Matches. You will need to shop around for the best odds and promotions to make sure you make the maximum from each bet. When you are searching for offers make sure you check worldwide bookmakers that have no restrictions on wagers made from your countries of residence. Some Canadian operators offer darts odds that are better priced than others so it is well worth searching the whole market and not just your local bookies. Below are my top three essential rules you should follow if you want to turn over a profit when betting on darts.

 

#1: Handicap Betting

One of the most popular bets to make is on which player will win each leg. The odds are determined by the players ranking, form and are altered in real time depending on how the match is playing out. One common mistake gamblers make when betting on Premier League Darts is that they assume that when a top-ranked player has a nice lead, they will continue to dominate that match. What commonly happens though is that once a big lead is gained the player tends to switch off and lose focus. This gives the losing player a chance to make a comeback and due to handicap betting, the odds will be high.

To be successful at handicap betting look for telltale signs that the player in the lead has begun to lose focus and back the underdog to win a few legs during this period. It is highly likely that the player with the lead will gain focus again once the gap has been closed which is why getting your timing right on this wager is vital if you want to come out on top.

 

#2: Anyone Can Win

The standards of darts have dramatically improved over the last 30 years and now there is only a tiny gap between the top-ranked players in the top 30. The top five players will still have a slight edge but now it is possible that anyone can beat anyone. This is why you should never bet on a player that you have not researched as there are no longer any no-hopers that qualify.

 

#3: Player Speed

One common factor that is overlooked by bettors is the amount of time on average it takes a player to play their darts. One of the most important aspects of a successful player is been able to play at their preferred rhythm. If players of the same speed are matched against each other the ranking are the best indicator of who to bet on. If however, a fast player is pit against a slow player this can dramatically affect the outcome of the game. You will need to check previous performances to see how each handles different game rhythms.

 

Conclusion

Pressure is also another important factor you must consider as it is a huge aspect of the game. Looking at the previous records to see how each cope when the pressure is on can help make the correct bets. Big tournament experience can help players relax as they have been through it all before but you should also check if they are under any other pressures in their personal lives as that too can have an impact.
