We've analysed each of the eight seeds at this year's BetVictor World Cup Of Darts and assessed their chances of success at the team event. Here we look at #2 seeds Scotland:

  • Scotland are aiming to win the World Cup for the first time having lost in the final in 2015 and 2018 where they were beaten by England and the Netherlands respectively.
  • They are represented for the fifth time by the pairing of Gary Anderson and Peter Wright who were the duo that guided Scotland to the final in 2015 and 2018.
  • The Flying Scotsman and Snakebite have also been on the end of two memorable World Cup upsets when they lost to South Africa in 2012 and to Singapore in 2017.

THE VERDICT

On paper the Scottish team is as strong as any, but there has to be question marks over how far they can go in the tournament due to both Anderson and Wright having a difficult 2019 so far. Anderson pulled out of the Premier League due to his back injury and has barely featured on the circuit this year, whilst Wright had a Premier League to forget with only two wins from his 16 matches. The draw for the early rounds could have been tougher for the two Scots, but when they reach the quarter-finals and beyond, harder challenges lie in wait, and there are too many doubts over their form to make you feel confident that they can make it to a third World Cup of Darts final.
