Below you will find a list of all the best darts betting sites.
Darts is growing in popularity each year, and betting sites are starting to embrace the sport with a wide variety of betting markets and events available each year. We list the best darts betting sites, and why we believe they offer fantastic darts betting products.
When picking the best, we looked for four key factors:
To start, we want to make sure the betting site offers enough events to bet on. At the very least, we expect the betting site to offer all of the major TV tournaments for both the PDC and BDO.
However, the BDO is rarely featured on betting sites, with the BDO World Championship one of the only tournaments available.
PDC TV Tournaments:
Check out our darts betting tips with full analysis and reasoning, which we post for the majority of PDC TV Tournaments throughout the year.
Outright winner - Simply betting on the winner of a tournament.
Match-winner- Darts is a two way market with just one winner. Apart from the Premier League of Darts tournament where they can draw in the earlier stages.
Correct score- Whether it’s the best of 5 legs or sets you can bet on the correct score at the end of the match.
Over/under- You can bet on the total number of legs or sets in a game.
Most 180’s- Simply who will score the most 180’s in a game. But, you can now even bet on most 180s in a leg or set during the game.
"Request a Bet's" - Most of the betting sites in our top list allow you to create or request customised darts bets of your choice.
King of the Oche- Also known as darts match treble, it is a market for a decent value, if you feel the player will dominate every aspect of the match. They must win, and hit the highest checkout and most 180s in the game.
Smaller Markets- Bets like “first dart score” which is a bet on where the first dart thrown in the match will land. Or, highest checkout in a match. Or, a 180 in the first leg, etc. We recommend avoiding the 50/50 markets like the first dart score, the colour of a double on the checkout, and other similar markets.

Firstly, you want to compare the odds on offer from the top five betting sites on our list. Having an account with all five allows you to consistently get the best price available to ensure you get the most out of your money.
However, if you choose to stick to one or two betting sites, you will want to calculate their darts betting margins to know how much the bookmaker is "charging" you for placing your bets.
Check out our full betting margins guide if you have no idea what they are, or how to calculate them.
Darts is mostly a two-way market, so it is very easy to calculate the betting margins for most games using the formula below.
(1/decimal odds) *100 + (1/decimal odds) *100 = Betting margin
World Cup of Darts: Steve Lennon (7/4) v Peter Wright (4/9)
First, convert the odds to decimals.
(1/2.75) *100 + (1/1.44) *100 = 36.3 + 69.4 = 105.7 = 5.7% betting margin (with bet365's odds)
A 5.7 margin is pretty good, considering some betting sites offer margins of up to 10% on the football winner market.
The best odds and margins will change often, but we have noticed that Betfair consistently ranks in the top two throughout the majority of our darts betting tips.
Betting on the darts is only fun if you can watch the game, or even the nice infographic some betting sites offer. For example, bet365 has a nice dartboard with darts landing where the player throws for their infographic.
But, bet365 also has a large number of live streams available depending on where you live. If you have a funded account, you can watch several darts matches for free using their bet to watch streams. Be sure to check their live streaming page for the latest information!
