Who will win the darts championship?
Judging by the winning trends from the past 7 years, Gary Anderson has made quite an appearance and punters should watch out for him. He has bagged wins in two consecutive years that is 2015 and 2016 and was a runner-up in 2021 with an average score of 7-3. Michael Van Gerwen is also a potential winner given the wins of 2017 and 2019. He was also a runner-up in 2020 with a score of 7-3.
Other darts championship competitors are Peter Wright (2020), Gerwyn Price (2021), and Rob Cross (2018). Let us narrow down on the competitors, to try and establish the likely winner of the darts championship. Now the top finalist players have been listed with regards to how they have won, and the player that holds the first position is Phil Taylor but who is not active in the competition scene, so we rule him out.
The second winner is Michael Van Gerwen who has had up to 14 appearances, we then have Gary Anderson who comes in third with up to 12 appearances. Adrian Lewis comes in the fourth position and ties with John Part who boasts of up to 18 appearances. So given the above statistics, we are hopeful that either Michael Van Gweren from the Netherlands will win the darts championship because he has put up a good fight over the recent years. Michael Van Gweren does have some wins tied to him for example he won the 3 min matches in 2016/17 and in 2019. He is also among the players with a 100+ match average.
