It should be noted that live streams for different darts tournaments are often only available through one particular bookmaker’s website or mobile app. This is because many events tend to be sponsored by one particular bookmaker, and it is that betting company therefore, which retains the rights to stream live action online.
What it’s also important to note, is that some geographical restrictions can apply in terms of when and where you are able to watch live darts streams. What we mean by that is that in certain countries and for certain tournaments, broadcasting and TV rights deals are such that it is not legal to make live online streams available.
What In-Play Markets are Available?
As a popular spectator sport which enjoys a close sponsorship relationship with many bookmakers and betting companies, darts is well catered for by most top betting sites. In fact, for the top matches in the most prestigious tournaments there can be an impressive number of in-play darts betting markets made available to punters. Some of the most popular and most widely available are as follows:
Match Winner – Okay, it’s not a particularly innovative or unusual market but match winner bets are unquestionably the most commonly available and one of the most popular types of in-play darts wagers. What makes this market so popular for in-play betting is that slight shifts in momentum in any match can change the available odds significantly, and lead to excellent value occasionally becoming available.
Set Winner – For darts matches which do not adopt a matchplay format, most online bookmakers will also allow punters to bet in-play on which player will win the set that’s currently ongoing. This type of bet can yield great rewards if a strong player suddenly finds themselves 2-0 down in legs but a punter still fancies them to be good enough to come back and win the set.
Leg Winner – Taking things one step further still, some betting sites will allow punters to bet on the winner of each and every leg as a match progresses. This kind of bet, however, requires quick thinking and even quicker betting given the rapid fire nature of many darts matches.
Double to Win the Set/Leg – One of the more innovative in-play darts betting markets, in some cases you can bet on which double will be hit to win a particular leg or set. This market can offer some impressive odds and is an interesting one to try out if and when you get a flavour of which doubles are a particular players favourites.
