According to the latest oddsmakers, Europe is now the favorite to win this event, as it has -155 odds to prevail. Team USA is now listed with +185 odds to win, while the odds of a tie happening are at +1000. 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 continues Saturday and Sunday from Le Golf National, Albatros Course in Guyancourt, France.

Bet on the Ryder Cup

The United States actually opened up play on Friday on a good note, winning three of the four matches in Four-Ball play. The big victory was Tony Finau and Brooks Koepka defeating Justin Rose and Jon Rahm, 1 Up after trailing the entire match. Dustin Johnson and Rickie Fowler picked up a win while Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth also were victories. Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood won the final morning match to salvage a shutout and make the score 3-1.

It was the afternoon where Europe completely dominated. The foursomes matches went to the Europeans by a wide margin. Justin Rose and Henrik Stenson won 3&2, Ian Poulter and Rory McIlroy won 4&2, Sergio Garcia and Alexander Noren won 5&4 while Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood won 5&4.

The United States hasn’t managed a win in European soil since 1993. Despite what looks like a stacked team on paper, they continue to struggle in the pairs format, something that has been a strength for Europe for years.
