Ryder Cup betting preview
The Ryder Cup is the pinnacle of world Golf, and the 2008 Ryder Cup looks to be one of the most hotly contested events in recent years. The European team led by Nick Faldo are slight favourites to retain their crown at best odds 10/11 with Totesport, with the Americans not far behind at 11/8 with Bet 365. For anyone who fancies the tie, Stan James offer the best odds at 12/1.
The 2008 Ryder Cup contest looks like one of the hardest to call in recent times, and this is reflected in the betting with such little difference in odds between the two. The Americans appear to be dogged by a lack of team spirit, and many golf pundits have the opinion that Tiger Woods doesn’t play to his full ability when competing as part of a team.
The Europeans on the other hand appear to be in good form, especially Padraig Harrington who has now won 3 majors in just 13 months. This is the first time Europe have ever been odds on going into a Ryder Cup event on foreign soil (This years event is being heldat the Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky September).
For anyone looking for a Ryder Cup special bet, the odds on a hole in 1 are 5/1 with Paddy Power.
