The PDC World Darts Championship has become synonymous with Christmas and we’re in for another festive treat as the world’s best descend on Alexandra Palace for a three-week fiesta of arrows.

Gerwyn Price returns to the iconic London venue as the defending champion after defeating Gary Anderson in last season’s final, but previous winners including Michael van Gerwen and Peter Wright will be desperate to nick back the title.

NEW TO PADDY POWER?

Fallon Sherrock stole the headlines in 2020 by beating Ted Evetts and Mensur Suljovic on her historic run to the third round, and she heads to Ally Pally in fine form after her recent heroics at the Grand Slam of Darts.

The PDC World Darts Championship 2022 gets underway on Wednesday, December 15 2021 and runs until Monday, January 3 2022. You can find the full schedule below and Paddy Power’s latest odds below.

PDC World Darts Championship 2022 Winner Odds

Gerywn Price is the favourite with Paddy Power to retain his crown at Ally Pally with the reigning champion ticking along nicely after thrashing Dirk van Duijvenbode in round four but he faces Michael Smith is a tasty quarter-final tie.

Smith has leapt to a prominent position in our Outright betting market after getting the better of this season’s breakout star Jonny Clayton in a seven-set thriller in round four.

Peter Wright beat MvG in the 2020 final to claim his maiden PDC World Championship but crashed out in the third round of last season’s tournament. Snakebite bounced back by winning the World Matchplay title in July and Players Championship Finals last month. He eased past Ryan Searle in the fourth round to progress to a last-eight match with up-and-coming Callan Rydz.

PDC World Darts Championship Winners

Phil ‘The Power’ Taylor is the most successful player in the history of the PDC World Darts Championship with an incredible 14 titles to his name. He also claimed two BDO equivalents before the PDC breakaway from the British Darts Organisation in the early 1990s.

Michael van Gerwen is next on the list with three victories, although the Dutchman has not come out on top at Ally Pally since January 2019, while Gary Anderson with two crowns is the last back-to-back winner.

Phil Taylor – 14
Michael van Gerwen – 3
John Part – 2
Adrian Lewis – 2
Gary Anderson – 2
Gerwyn Price – 1
Peter Wright – 1
Rob Cross – 1
Dennis Priestly – 1
Raymond van Barneveld – 1

PDC World Darts Championship Finals In The Last 5 Years

Gerwyn Price got the better of two-time winner Gary Anderson at an empty Ally Pally in January 2021 to lift the Sid Waddell Trophy for the first time in his career. A reigning champion has not defended their title since 2016 so recent history is against Price to come up trumps once again.

2017: Michael van Gerwen 7-3 Gary Anderson
2018: Rob Cross 7-2 Phil Taylor
2019: Michael van Gerwen 7-3 Michael Smith
2020: Peter Wright 7-4 Michael van Gerwen
2021: Gerwyn Price 7-3 Gary Anderson
