Ryder Cup Odds: 65% of Bets on USA To Beat Europe at 2021 Ryder Cup
The teams are set, the hype is real and the 2021 Ryder Cup is officially just around the corner. The PGA Tour season gets underway this week, but it’s next week’s Ryder Cup, and more importantly, Ryder Cup odds that have people around golf buzzing.
For most states, this will be the first-ever Ryder Cup with legal sports betting and the oddsmakers have tabbed the home team, Team USA, as the favorite.
Not only are they the favorite to win, but the latest Ryder Cup betting numbers have them as the more popular pick in the betting market as well.
On paper, Team USA appears to be the more talented group of the two, but there are some outside circumstances that could interfere. We’re all well aware that teammates Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka aren’t too fond of one another. Brooks Koepka comes into the event nursing a wrist injury while there are rumors that DeChambeau has torn up his hands preparing for a long drive competition.
The first player to qualify for the team, Collin Morikawa, has been on a cold spell since the British Open and the last time Dustin Johnson won an event was almost a year ago.
Still, the latest Ryder Cup odds and betting favor the United States, who will be looking for a win in front of a raucous Minnesota crowd.
Ryder Cup Odds
Since the 2018 Ryder Cup ended, Team USA’s Ryder Cup odds this time around have had them as the favorite. The event was supposed to take place in 2020, but it was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, a year later, Team USA is still the favorite to win as their odds sit at -187, implying a 65.2% chance they win it this year after falling in a lopsided defeat in 2018.
|Team USA Win||-187||65.2%|
|Team Europe Win||+225||30.8%|
