Betting on darts for the first time? Familiarize yourself with the wide array of darts betting markets.

To Win Outright 

Selecting who will win the tournament.

Money Line 

Selecting who will win the match. The first round match-ups are the best of 11 legs and the quarter-finals onwards are the best of 15 legs.

Correct Leg Score 

Selecting the exact correct score of a match-up. There are odds available for all possible round scores and outcomes.


Confident in a match winner and don’t want to bet the Money Line? The spread allows you to take a player to win by more than one leg (-1.5), or a player to lose by less than one leg (+1.5) or win the match. 

Alternative handicap markets are also available, allowing bettors to select spreads greater than -1.5.

Total Legs 

The total number of legs played in a match. If the over-under for total legs is 12.5, and the match finishes 8-5, that would indicate the ‘over,’ as 13 legs were played. 

Alternative total leg markets are also available.

Most/Total/Player 180s 

Hitting a 180 is the maximum score a player can achieve in a single visit. This can be accomplished with three treble 20s in a row. 

There are markets available for which player in a matchup will hit the most 180s, how many 180s a single match between two players will yield, as well as how many 180s a single player will produce in one match.

Highest Checkout

A checkout is the points scored by a player in their final visit to the oche in which that player wins the leg. The highest possible checkout is 170, as rules state a leg can only be won with the final dart landing on a double or a bullseye.

This market allows you to select which player will have the highest checkout in a match.

The ‘Highest Checkout Score’ market is also available, where you can select an over-under for what the highest checkout score in a match will be.

170 Finish in Match

Selecting whether or not a player will achieve a 170 finish, the highest possible checkout that requires two treble 20s and a bullseye to complete. The odds of this occurring in a match are typically quite long.

9 Dart Finish in Match

Selecting whether or not a player will win a leg having thrown just nine darts, the minimum amount required to score a total of 501. The odds of this occurring in a match are longer than that of a 170 finish – but it has happened before.

First Leg Betting

Several markets are available for the first leg of a match, including ‘First 180’ – which player will achieve a perfect 180 first – ‘To Win First Leg,’ ‘First Leg Total Checkout’ and more.
