Defending champions Netherlands and England are the joint favourites to win the World Cup of Darts which begins on Thursday.

Both have new pairings with Jermaine Wattimena and Michael Smith being added to the lineup respectively.
Scotland are next favourites with team of Peter Wright and Gary Anderson looking for their first title.
There is of course question marks over Anderson though with him being out most of the year with injuries.
Wales are next up at 14/1 with Gerwyn Price and Jonny Clayton once again in terrific form this year and they should be able to cause some problems.
As should some countries further down with the dangerous Poland down at 66/1. Both Krzysztof Ratajski and Tytus Kanik have been playing well this year and could be outsiders.
Certain other outsiders include Republic of Ireland at 80/1 with William O’Connor a recent title winner and Steve Lennon, one of the brightest prospects in the game.
Also Philippines at 250/1 with Lourence Ilagan and Noel Malicdem having the opportunity if they can beat England to potentially go on a run.
