Most popular sports are simple to play and understand. Darts is no different and new bettors can get their heads around the sport very quickly. Players alternate turns and throw three darts each at the board. The dartboard is divided into different score values from one to 60. The inner portion of the board is worth a treble and the outer portions of the board are double the points value. If the player’s dart lands in these areas, they will receive treble or double the points. A bullseye scores the player 50 points while the outer green ring is worth 25. Darts tournaments differ with some matches taking place throughout several sets and/or games. A game is known as a leg in darts lingo and are usually a best-of-five-series. A player to reach three victories wins the set. As tournaments progress, the number of sets and/or games do too. Punters have a variety of markets to wager on when betting on darts. Popular markets include betting on the outright winner, match winner, correct score, over/under, and most 180s. You may find other markets depending on the sportsbook. Some bookies will give you the chance to bet on unique markets, especially during major tournaments.
