The 2016 Ryder Cup takes place between Friday and Sunday, with the bookies happy to offer 19/10 (Paddy Power) about Europe winning at Hazeltine despite the fact that they’ve won the past three renewals.
Team USA seem well-equipped to stop the rot, with Davis Love III’s team now 8/13 (Stan James) to claim a victory in Minnesota, with the Americans having just two rookies compared to Europe’s six.
The draw is a 12/1 chance with bet365, a result which would mean Europe retain the Ryder Cup. They do boast the in-form Rory McIlroy and the Northern Irishman has been warm order at 7/2 (Ladbrokes) to top score for his team.
Justin Rose is 6/1 (Stan James) on the same market and is likely to be involved in all five matches, with Henrik Stenson on offer at 13/2 (William Hill) although injury could prevent the Swede playing five rounds in three days.
Danny Willett is the 10/3 favourite (Stan James) to be top European rookie, with Chris Wood the 9/1 outsider (BetVictor) although it largely depends on who Darren Clarke decides to field in the foursomes and fourballs.
Team USA are spearheaded by the likes of Jordan Spieth and Dustin Johnson, with the latter marginal favourite at 4/1 (betway) to score the most points for the home side, while Spieth is a 5/1 shot with Stan James.
America certainly have a star-studded line-up and you can get 9/1 (188Bet) that USA win 15-13 on the correct score market, although a 16-12 outcome is a 14/1 chance with Hills and we should note that the home side were cruising at Medinah before Europe turned it around in the Sunday singles.
Bet365 go 25/1 about an 18-10 triumph and the Americans could really kick clear if they enjoy a winning start which would see the home crowd feverish and a real shift in momentum is possible.
