Free Darts Picks Today


Here you will find today's free darts picks on OLBG, listed are the most popular picks for upcoming matches and tournaments. This column will highlight either a tournament for example the US Darts Masters or a match from an upcoming tournament will be displayed. If a tournament is highlighted here then the most popular selection shown will be for the tournament winner market, if it's an upcoming match listed then the popular pick showing will be for a betting market on the match. For a list of upcoming PDC Tournaments take a look at the official PDC website.

Best Free Darts Selections

  • Tournament Winner

The most popular choice highlighted under a tournament heading is the selection receiving the most predictions to win the tournament outright. The tournament name is displayed first, for example, the PDC World Championship or PDC Premier League. The Tournament Winner picks may also include 'Each Way' selections, particularly for tournaments like the PDC World Championship where there will be a large pool of players taking part. Each Way betting terms in the majority of tournaments will cover 1st and 2nd place so the player must reach the final to at least result in a partial payout. Clicking on the pick shown will transfer you to the tournament picks page showing all the predictions including the 'Each Way' picks.

  • Win Match

This is basically a 'Money Line' bet so the selection shown for each match has received the most predictions and is tipped to win the match.

  • Handicap 2 Way

This is a spread bet where sportsbooks will set the Handicap Line, for example, the majority of regular PDC tournaments are in 'leg' format so the handicap may be set at + or - 1.5 legs. The favorite will have a -1.5 leg start and the underdog will have a +1.5 leg start. If you think the favorite will win by more than 1 leg then the bet is -1.5 legs, if you feel the match will be decided within 1 leg or the underdog wins then the bet is +1.5 legs.

  • Total Legs (or Total Sets)

This again is a spread bet whereby sportsbooks will set the line at their forecast total number of legs or sets (depending on the format) to be played in the match. The majority of tournaments have a shorter format so this will be a Total Legs bet, the match may be best of 11 legs so the first player to reach 6 legs wins the match and the sportsbooks may set the Total Legs line at Over or Under 9.5 legs. If you feel the match may go the distance and a winner will be decided in the 11th and final leg then the bet would be Over 9.5 legs, if the match finishes in the 9th leg or before using this example then 'Under' 9.5 legs is the winning pick. For tournaments with a 'Set' format where the players will play best of 3 or best of 5 legs to win a set like, for example, the PDC World Championship then the Total Sets market will apply with the line set at a Total number of Sets played in the match.

  • Win First Set

This bet is only applicable for tournaments like the PDC World Championship with a 'Set' format rather than just the leg format. You are betting simply on which player will win the First Set in the match. The final match result is irrelevant.

  • Leg (or Set) Betting

This is a correct score bet where you are betting on the final leg or set score in the match, for the majority of the regular tournaments sportsbooks will offer Leg Betting, and similar to soccer matches a correct Leg Score or Set Score wager offers greater payouts than just betting on the Win Game or match market. For tournaments like the PDC World Championship, sportsbooks will offer Set Score betting odds.

  • Total 180s

This is a bet spread bet, where sportsbooks will set a figure for the expected total number of 180s thrown in the match, and bettors, predict whether the total number of 180s thrown will be 'Over' or 'Under' the Total 180s figure set by the sportsbooks. This is the combined total thrown by both players so consideration has to be given to the possible number of total legs or sets that may be played in the match and whether the players involved are generally prolific when it comes to throwing 180s. Some players may have a greater tendency to revert to the 19 scores more often if the first dart of the three thrown may land awkwardly and preventing a clear shot at the treble 20 with the remaining darts, an important factor OLBG handicappers may consider before adding darts picks.

  • Most 180s

This is a match bet on which player will throw the most 180s in the match, it is usually a 3-way market that includes the tie/draw option.

  • 9 Dart Finish

This is a straight 'Yes' or 'No' option bet whereby odds are offered whether or not a player will throw the perfect 9-dart leg to checkout. The '9 darters' does happen occasionally and in main televised events so can be a fun wager for bettors playing the 'Yes' option offering a nice return for a small outlay. The 'Yes' option generally is priced up around the +2500 or +3000 range.

Value Odds Darts Picks

The odds are shown next to each popular pick, many handicappers may view the available odds as the most important factor for placing a wager and whether they consider the selection to be a 'value' bet. Click on the Odds column menu tab to sort the most popular picks from shortest to highest odds and vice versa. Next to the odds are the number of picks received for the highlighted selection against the total number of picks received for the relevant match market giving a confidence percentage.

The Value Rating column may highlight a 1 to 5-star rating (5 being the best). This compares the % of picks and odds for a selection. If the odds are higher than the theoretical chances of winning considering these factors then the selection could be a value bet. Click on the Value Rating column to list the popular picks by most stars.
