Dutch Favourites For World Cup Title
NETHERLANDS have been made the early favourites to win their third Betway World Cup of Darts title following the confirmation of the 32 nations for June's tournament.
The seventh staging of the PDC's World Cup of Darts will see 32 nations - including debutants Brazil and Latvia - competing from June 1-4 at the Eissporthalle in Frankfurt.
The unique tournament, featuring a combination of Doubles and Singles games, will be broadcast live on Sky Sports, as four-time winners England defend their title.
However, two-time champions Netherlands - whose team is set to feature World Champion Michael van Gerwen - have been made the Evens favourites with sponsors Betway.
England are the 5/2 second favourites as they bid for a fifth triumph, while Scotland are the 7/2 third favourites.
2012 finalists Australia are 16/1 chances to go all the way in June, with two other previous runners-up, Belgium and Wales, both 25/1 chances.
