James Wade Odds
James Wade odds are always worth checking out as the young Englishman continues to show he is one of the best players in the world.
He us the youngest ever player to win a major PDC title in 2007 when he lifted the World Matchplay title at just 24 years of age.
Since then he has gone on to win the World Grand Prix twice, the Premier League and Championship League, as well as the UK Open in both 2008 and 2011.
However, despite consistently performing in all of the major tournaments, there is one title that has so far eluded him…
James Wade odds in the World Championship are sure to be short – despite never making the final
Wade has so far disappointed in the Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship and hasn’t really come close to upsetting the odds and picking up the biggest prize in darts.
Wade’s best performance in the championship so far was a semi final appearance in the 2009 event when, after seeing off Paul Nicholson and Vincent van der Voort in the previous rounds, he was knocked out 6-4 against Dutchman Raymond van Barneveld.
Van Barneveld went on to lose the final against Phil Taylor and it’s unlikely that, even if he had defeated Van Barneveld, Wade would have had enough to beat ‘The Power’ and claim a maiden title.
However, Taylor is getting on in years and, with age on his side, the James Wade odds for him to go on and win a Ladbrokes.com World Darts Championship title look extremely temping.
You can’t rule out Taylor though
Even though he is now the wrong side of 50 years-old, Phil Taylor is still easily the best darts player in the world and continues to be No.1 in the world rankings by a considerable distance.
Ruling Taylor out when looking at the darts odds could prove a costly mistake.
