Ryder Cup Preview
Since the PGA altered the format in 1979, the Ryder Cup, which sees Europe take on the USA, has provided golf fans with some of the most thrilling sporting moments imaginable. Who could forget Nick Faldo’s hole-in-one at the Belfry in 1993, or, that controversial Justin Leonard birdie that sparked The Battle of Brookline in 1999?
This time around, veteran Irishman and 3x Majors winner, Padraig Harrington will lead the Europeans onto American soil. He’ll be up against a US team captained by Steve Stricker, a competitor whose game only seems to improve with age.
Having won 17.5-10.5 on the Albatross Course of Le Golf National in Guyancourt, France in 2018, team Europe is the defending champion heading into the weekend.
This year’s arena will be Whistling Straits in Wisconsin, US – one of the most beautiful golf courses on earth. With home course advantage and the home crowd on its side, the American team will be expected to wrestle the trophy back from their European counterparts for only the third time in a decade.
With the action set to commence on Friday at 14:00 BST, read on for all the latest Ryder Cup betting odds, as well as a look at two exclusive tournament promotions courtesy of Betfred.

Ryder Cup Prediction
Given they are at home in Wisconsin and boast eight of the world’s current Top 10 ranked golfers, the Americans are favorites to reclaim the Ryder Cup trophy at Whistling Straits come Sunday evening. The 8/15 odds reflect this.
Experience does count for something, however. The European side is full of players who’ve lifted the Ryder Cup on multiple occasions. Players like Sergio Garcia, Rory McIlroy, and Ian Poulter know exactly what it takes to hold their nerve in matchplay golf. They won’t roll over easily for the Americans. Not to mention, the Europeans do boast the world’s No.1 ranked player on current form in Ian Rahm.
The main reason the Ryder Cup is such an exciting tournament to watch is that it’s an incredibly tough tournament to predict. Anything that can happen does happen. However, with all that experience among the ranks; seven of the last ten Ryder Cup tournaments won, and far more appealing 9/4 odds, we will be taking the Europeans as outright winners.
