Jon Rahm's 2021 Ryder Cup Odds, Betting Preview & Predictions
Jon Rahm’s Ryder Cup Odds
Europe enter the 2021 Ryder Cup as the underdogs in the Ryder Cup outright odds market, but if they’re to overcome ‘dog’ status, it’s likely to be at least partly down to the play of World Number one; Jon Rahm. The Spaniard has been the best player on the planet in 2021 and after capturing his first major title at the US Open, he continued his good play throughout the playoffs.
Rahm has long been thought of as a future Ryder Cup star, with comparisons unsurprisingly made with fellow Spaniards Seve Ballasteros and Sergio Garcia. Rahm’s big hitting and fiery nature ensure he’s going to be a tough (if not the toughest) opponent any American could face this week.
Unsurprisingly, he features at the top of the Ryder Cup odds boards for a number of prop markets.

Jon Rahm Ryder Cup Prediction
Jon Rahm’s Ryder Cup odds don’t offer any value to bettors. He’s the favorite to be the top scorer in points, but will be up against a raucous crowd and plenty of fired-up American players. On top of that, Rahm enters the event off the back of a missed cut last week and rumours of injuries. We’ll be fading ‘Rahmbo’ this week.
