So, where's your money?

The Las Vegas wise guys and European bookies agree – the European team are favourites to win the Ryder Cup. Only the Irish bookie Paddy Power is brave enough to go ‘odds against’ on the European team, all others see them as odds-on favourites. This is an unprecedented situation in Ryder Cup history as US teams have always been favourites on home soil. But having seen two very comfortable European victories, the bookies are taking no chances.

There are many wild and wonderful ways to speculate on this competition. Here are a few interesting wagers:

  • The US team are as big as 13/8 to lead after Day One. Even a 4.5-3.5 lead will do!
  • Sergio Garcia is the hot favourite to win the most points at 7/1. Some interesting alternatives include Anthony Kim (14/1), Justin Leonard (18/1) and Justin Rose (25/1)
  • Source of much controversy, Ian Poulter, is best-priced at 9/2 to be the top English points scorer
  • The odds of a hole-in-one are just 5/1. Seems quite low but then it appears that the Ryder Cup attracts the dramatic
  • If you think 7&6 would be the biggest winning margin, then 10/1 are your odds
For what it’s worth, my money is on the US to win at 13/10. Don’t expect my winnings to solve the global financial turmoil.
