Lewis 11/2 for hat-trick of World Championships

Despite back-to-back crowns he has yet to usurp Phil Taylor

Adrian Lewis became only the third player in darts history to retain a maiden World Championship title, following in the footsteps of Raymond van Barneveld and Eric Bristow, and is now William Hills’ 11/2 second favourite to win the 2013 PDC World Championships.

Upon winning his second title Jackpot went on to claim that he believes he can win another eight world titles in his career.

"I've set myself a target of eight to ten World Championship titles and I'm on my way towards that now,” said Lewis.

“If I win between eight and ten I can retire a happy man - but I'm only 26 so I've got plenty of time left in my career.

“There's no reason I can't do that because to retain the trophy shows that I'm the best player in the world at the minute.”

William Hill have since priced up the chances of Lewis achieving his target and offer odds of 100/1 that Jackpot will win 10 or more world titles before he retires.

Despite back-to-back crowns he has yet to usurp Phil Taylor at the head of the PDC World Championship betting. The Power is quoted at 5/2 for next year’s title.

This year’s beaten finalist Andy Hamilton is a 40/1 chance, last year’s runner-up Gary Anderson is 6/1 and world number three James Wade is 7/1 for the 2013 crown.
