Bookies.com reviews five early bets for the Ryder Cup 2016. Who will make the USA and European teams?
With the next Ryder Cup 2016 only one year away, Bookies.com looks at five great bets that punters can take advantage of for the eagerly awaited tournament!
Tiger Woods to make USA team
If history has taught us one thing in golf, you should never write people off. The former world number one didn’t get there by accident and he is still top class on his day, capable of wielding his club like a wand to produce the seemingly impossible, almost Seve Ballesteros-like. Consecutive top 10 finishes at next year’s four Majors will more than guarantee him a spot and his odds of 6/4 with Sky Bet to make the USA team should be taken.
BETTING TIP: Tiger Woods to make USA team @ 6/4 with Sky Bet.
Lee Westwood to make European team
When the Englishman is at his best, there is nobody who can compete with him, though he needs to get his short game together. A Ryder Cup favourite, he is more than capable of making the European team and is a reliable partner for one of the youngsters. At 2/1 with BetVictor to be selected, punters should definitely take these odds.
BETTING TIP: Lee Westwood to make European team @ 2/1 with BetVictor.
Steve Stricker to make USA team
If you’re looking for an outside bet, you can do worse than back fan favourite Stricker to be selected, with outstanding odds of 33/1 with BetVictor. One of golf’s big hitters, if he gets his game together, he is more than capable of making the USA team and could even be a wildcard selection.
BETTING TIP: Steve Stricker to make USA team @ 33/1 with BetVictor.
Paul Casey to make European team
It is perhaps unbelievable that odds on this happening are available at 13/8 with Sky Bet. A consistently reliable player, he is historically a big scorer at the Ryder Cup and it is impossible to think that he won’t be selected.
BETTING TIP: Paul Casey to make European team @ 13/8 with Sky Bet.
USA to win the Ryder Cup
Offered at 6/5 with 888Sport to win the tournament, punters should remember that the winner of three golf Majors in 2015 have been American, with Jordan Spieth victorious in two and Zach Johnson claiming The Open, so this is definitely a good bet. It is also worth noting that no European has won a Major in 2015 also.
BETTING TIP: USA win the Ryder Cup 2016 @ 6/5 with 888Sport.
