Ryder Cup betting: What are the best markets this week?

The winner, the best rookie, the top points scorers.. What are you betting on for this week’s Ryder Cup?

 

The Ryder Cup begins on Friday in Rome and there are plenty of markets to win money on if you’re betting on the competition.

From who the overall winner will be, to the leading points scorers and best rookie, there is plenty to take a punt on at the Ryder Cup.

Every two years, Europe takes on the United States in this match play format, with a total of 28 matches determining the winner over the three day competition.

There will be eight foursomes matches, eight fourballs across the opening two days of the event, before 12 singles matches on the final day.

The European team will be looking to avenge their record defeat from two years previously, while the USA are aiming to win on European soil for the first time in three decades.

So the winner is one of the main markets this week, but what else could you put your money on?

Below, we take a look at some of the more obvious markets, ones that can make watching this week’s Ryder Cup even more exciting.

What are the best markets for betting at the Ryder Cup?

Who will win the Ryder Cup?

This the most obvious market for this week’s Ryder Cup, but will it be the Europeans or the Americans that take the win?

With William Hill, the US are the slight favourites at 21/20. Luke Donald‘s European team are currently 5/4, but these odds continue to change ever so slightly as we get closer to the start of the tournament.

The draw is currently 12/1. We saw it happen in the Solheim Cup on Sunday, could we see it again this week?

What will be the exact score?

Following the result, what will be the score come Sunday evening?

At 10/1, William Hill have Zach Johnson‘s USA squad winning by either a 14.5-13.5 or 15-13 scoreline. Those are the two outcomes with the shortest odds.

As noted earlier, the 14-14 remains at 12/1, while a narrow 14.5-13.5 victory for the Europeans comes in at 11/1. A USA 15.5-12.5 win is also 11/1.

Also at 12/1, along with the draw are three scorelines. USA 16-12, Europe 15-13 and Europe 15.5-12.5 are currently at the same odds.

For each scoreline, the American way sees the odds shorter, with them being the slight favourites overall.

Who will be the top European points scorer?

Six of the European team are in single figures odds, and unsurprisingly, the top three are the big three European names.

Rory McIlroy is the favourite to lead the Europeans this week in Rome. He is currently 9/2, while Spain’s Jon Rahm is at 5/1.

Viktor Hovland, who won both the BMW Championship and Tour Championship in August, is the third favourite for the Europeans, at 11/2.

Tommy Fleetwood, Tyrrell Hatton and Matt Fitzpatrick are the other three European players currently in single figure odds.

Justin Rose and Ludvig Aberg, two players are differing ends of their Ryder Cup careers, are both at 12/1.

Despite being an automatic qualifier, Robert MacIntyre has the longest odds, at 33/1

Who will score the most points for Team USA?

Even though they are favourites to lift the trophy, only six Americans come in at single figures odds for the Ryder Cup.

It will come as no surprise that Scottie Scheffler is the favourite to lead this category, coming in at 9/2 to be the leading American come Sunday night.

Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele are both 6/1, with the sole LIV Tour golfer in the competition, Brooks Koepka, at 7/1.

Collin Morikawa is at 8/1, while Jordan Spieth and Max Homa are also in single figures, coming in at 9/1.

Collin Morikawa

Despite winning the Open Championship earlier this season, Brian Harman comes in at 25/1, the longest odds for the American team.

Which rookie will have the best week?

Eight rookies will tee it up at Marco Simone, but which one of those will score the most points on debut?

Max Homa is the favourite for the rookie scoring this week. He comes in at 10/3. Sweden’s Ludvig Aberg, who won his first DP World Tour title earlier this month, is the leading European at 7/2.

US Open champion Wyndham Clark and Sam Burns are both 5/1, with Sepp Straka and Nicolai Hojgaard at 7/1.

Robert MacIntyre is at 8/1, with Brian Harman coming in at 10/1, as the outsider to lead the way for the rookies.

Which player will show they deserved a captain’s pick?

Half of those playing in Rome this week were captain’s picks, and it might be no surprise that a major champion is the favourite to win the wildcard category.

After winning the PGA Championship, Brooks Koepka almost made it into the top six qualifiers for the US team. He is 5/1 to be the best captain’s pick in Rome.

Tommy Fleetwood is the leading European at 11/2. Collin Morikawa is 13/2, while Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Ludvig Aberg are all currently 15/2.

Rickie Fowler and Shane Lowry, both Ryder Cup veterans in their own right, are at 10/1 and 12/1 respectively.

What do you think are the best betting markets for the Ryder Cup? Will it be Team Europe or Team USA that take victory? Let us know with a post on X, formerly Twitter!

Mention a European country, and Matt will tell you which resorts make the National Club Golfer Top 100s: European Resorts list. He might even throw in who designed the golf course and how many rooms the hotel has got at each one…

Matt got into the game of golf from a young age, following his old man to the local golf club. He fell for the sport, and now can’t seem to go a day without thinking about how to improve his game (Thanks Dad!). Matt has been a member of Howley Hall GC in Leeds since 2020, and is just about managing to maintain a single-figure handicap. He likes to remind people that he once broke 75, but won’t tell people that it was on a shortened course during the winter.

He moved to Leeds after graduating from the University of Central Lancashire with a First Class Honours degree in Sports Journalism. Matt joined NCG after almost five years travelling the world with the Professional Squash Association, working on events in all four corners of the globe.

Matt currently plays a Cobra King LTDx driver and RadSpeed 3-wood. TaylorMade monopolise the rest of his bag, with a SIM UDI, M5 irons and both Milled Grind and HI-TOE wedges, along with a Monza Redline putter. He uses a Vice Pro Plus golf ball, because he’s a bit different…

Away from golf, Matt is a Manchester United fan, and a keen runner, having ran the Rob Burrow Leeds Marathon (his first and possibly last), in May 2023.
