World Cup Of Darts draw 2016 and teams

Scotland

This years line up is Gary Anderson and Robert Thornton as unfortunately Peter Wright ruled himself out. Which is such a s shame as Gary and Peter played really well together last year and finished the runners-up. Gary beat MvG a couple of days ago in the final of the Dubai Darts Masters so he is coming into this tournament in fine fettle.

Netherlands/Holland

The Dutch duo this year are Michael van Gerwen and Raymond van Barneveld, as like Peter above, Jelle klaasen decided not to put his name forward. Holland are the favourites here but I am wary of Raymondo here.  Such a shame that Holland and Scotland are in the same quarter of the draw as otherwise I would have traded them both plus England on Betfair.

England

Past winners Adrian Lewis and Phil Taylor line up shoulder to shoulder once more and as they are in the bottom half of the draw they should in theory coast their way to the final to meet either Scotland or Holland.

It’s really tough for me to pick a winner here  but I have narrowed it down to Holland, Scotland and England. Yeah I know, a serious case of sitting on the fence here, but this looks the best way to approach this tournament as each team has a player who is currently playing well below par at the moment.

I will back all three for a total of three points which will give me a profit of 4.86 points if either team wins.

Scotland 5/1 – Powers & Ladbrokes

Holland 13/8 – Skybet

England 9/4 – Boylesports & Bwin
