Ryder Cup Public Betting Data: Where’s The Money Been Going?
Yesterday the news came in that Phil Mickelson won’t be playing on the US Ryder Cup team this year and instead he’ll be a vice captain. Now, we’re not saying that this news affected the public betting on the event, but .. well, we are saying that.
Ever since this news was announced, there’s been an incredible 85.71% of total bets on USA to win the Ryder Cup! Compared to just 14.29% on Europe. Obviously Phil Mickelson is a legendary golfer, but his poor Ryder Cup record led many to question whether he really should be on this team with the amount of in-form, young talent around.
That decision has been made and the public like it.
