After a short break following a record-breaking World Championships, PDC Darts is back! Our new ace Darts tipster Sean Rafferty (@0varyStripe) has looked at the Bahrain Darts Masters, which is essentially the PDC vs Asian Tour and given us his two best bets for the weekend.

Bahrain Darts Masters Betting Tips

  • 2pts Luke Littler to win - 4/1 
  • 1pt Rob Cross e/w (1/2, 2 Places) - 10/1

History, Location and Format

The 2024 Bahrain Darts Masters is the 2nd running of this event and is a relatively new tournament to promote the PDC Asian Tour.

Eight of the top players from the PDC Order of Merit, take on eight of the best from the Asian continent in the desert country of Bahrain.

The defending champion is Englishman Michael Smith, who defeated Gerwyn Price 8-6 in the final.

Draw

2pts Luke Littler to win - 4/1 

The 16-year-old lit up the darts world over Christmas and New Year, with an incredible run to the final of the World Championship, even without having his professional status yet. He looks to continue that form in 2024, as he enters the year as a PDC Tour Card holder now.

He has a tricky opening round tie against Man Lok Leung, who also made a good account of himself at Ally Pally last month. The Nuke should win this, then faces a winnable tie versus Aspinall/Ilagan, which would see him into the semis already.

All the opponents he’s likely to face are fast paced, which suits him best. He’ll have had loads of media distractions since the Worlds but I don’t expect this to phase him or hamper his progress, as he’s previously revealed he isn’t a big practicer. At 4/1, I fancy the youngster to make a good account of himself again here.

1pt Rob Cross e/w (1/2, 2 Places) - 10/1

I’ve been a big backer of Cross the past six months and I’m happy to jump on him again for this.

'Voltage' has been so consistent and constantly shows form worthy of winning a title. The 33-year-old had some joy on the World Series circuit in 2023 - winning back to back titles in New Zealand &Australia.

The 2018 World Champion had another impressive tournament at the Worlds, only being stopped by an absolute barrage from Luke Littler in the semis. Cross averaged comfortably over 100 in his last four matches at the Worlds and a similar level should see him do well here.

The Londoner potentially faces Van Gerwen at the QF stage but if he wins this then the draw really opens up for him, which makes the 10/1 cracking value.

Cross 10-1
