MICHAEL VAN GERWEN is an odds-on favourite as he bids to win a fourth successive Unibet Masters title in Milton Keynes this coming weekend.
The Dutchman has been victorious in the 16-player Masters since the tournament's move to Arena MK in 2015 to complete a title hat-trick.
Van Gerwen enters this year's Masters as the top seed , and is the 8/11 pre-tourmament favourite with sponsors Unibet to extend his winning run to four titles.
He is also a huge 1/20 favourite to win Saturday's first round tie with Kim Huybrechts, who is 10/1 to cause an upset against the reigning champion.
New World Champion Rob Cross is Unibet's 4/1 second favourite as he makes his Masters debut, with the number three seed 2/15 to win his Friday night opener against Ian White.
2017 runner-up GAry Anderson is the 13/2 third favourite, while 2017 UK Open champion Peter Wright, the number two seed, is an 8/1 chance as he aims for a third televised title.
Unibet will be offering a wide range of Outright, Match and In-Play odds throughout the Unibet Masters.
