Top European Scorer Odds
The European Team has the home soil for the 2018 Ryder Cup. Which player on the squad will lead their team in scoring this weekend?
According to the latest oddsmakers, Justin Rose is favored to lead the team, as he has +425 odds. Other short odds are Rory McIlroy (+500) and Jon Rahm (+700), while Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood each have +800 odds. The Ryder Cup is a 3-day event, featuring 4 foursomes and 4 fourball matches each of the first two days and then 12 singles matches on Sunday. Each match is done in match-play format and is worth 1 point to the winner or ½ on a tie. The 2018 Ryder Cup takes place Friday-Sunday from Le Golf National, Albatros Course in Guyancourt, France.
Rose is second in the world rankings right now and was first last week. Rose is playing in his fifth Ryder Cup this weekend. He comes into this event with an 11-6-2 record in his matches.
McIlory joins Rose as one of the veteran players on the European roster. He has appeared in four Ryder Cups in his career and has a 9-6-4 record through 19 matches. McIlroy is currently sixth in the world rankings and has finished 12th or better in five of his last six tournaments.
Rahm and Fleetwood are both making their Ryder Cup debut this week. Fleetwood has had a strong 2018 season, especially in majors, and has climbed to 12th in the world rankings. Rahm finds himself eighth in the world rankings and he has won two events this year.
Molinari is playing in his third Ryder Cup this year, but his previous two have not went well. The Italian is 0-4-2 in six Ryder Cup matches. One can argue he is a new player this year after winning his first major in 2018. He is currently fifth in the world rankings thanks to three wins this year.
