2021 Ryder Cup Odds: Steve Stricker names wildcard picks as bookmakers make USA odds-on favourites

The twelve-man US team is now confirmed...

With just over two weeks until the start of the 2021 Ryder Cup, US captain Steve Stricker, has announced the six wildcard picks that will join up with the rest of the American team at Whistling Straits.

With automatic qualification still yet to be confirmed for the European team, the final leaderboard at the BMW Championship this week will be crucial in deciding how Europe will line up on September 24th.

European captain, Padraig Harrington, will announce his wildcard picks on Sunday once automatic qualification has been confirmed.

In the meantime, here are the six wildcard picks for team USA who will join the six automatic qualifiers.

Bookmakers expect the American team to win the 2021 Ryder Cup, despite their struggles in recent years to get the better of team Europe. Stricker’s team are a best price of 4/7 win the Ryder Cup back after losing in 2018 at Le Golf National.

Harrington’s European team are a best price of 6/4 to retain the Ryder Cup and 9/4 to win. Europe will be keen to draw inspiration from Europe’s winning Solheim Cup team who retained the trophy on Sunday. Emerging star, Leona Maguire, who shone for team Europe proved just how crucial wildcard picks can be.
