With the FedEx Cup coming to a close, the golf betting world now focuses its attention on the Ryder Cup. Tiger Woods and the United States will try to win back the Ryder Cup while Rory McIlroy and the Europeans will look to win the match for the fifth time in six tries. As always, Bovada has plenty of prop betting options available.
Bettors can bet on who will be the top European scorer and who will be the top American scorer. McIlroy (5/1) is the favorite to be the top European scorer with Luke Donald (6/1), Graeme McDowell (7/1), Ian Poulter (7/1), Justin Rose (15/2), and Lee Westwood (15/2) also expected to be in the running. Woods (5/1) is the big favorite to be the top American scorer with Steve Stricker (8/1), Phil Mickelson (8/1) and Dustin Johnson (9/1) looking to challenge.
Of course, you can also bet on who will be the top scorer in the Ryder Cup overall. Woods is currently favored at 8/1, with McIlroy close behind at 11/1.
Bettors can also bet on the exact final score of the Ryder Cup. 2010’s result, Europe 14.5 to USA 13.5, is one of the favorites at 10/1. Also going off at 10/1 are USA 15-13 and a tie at 14-14. The betting favorite is currently USA winning 14.5 to 13.5 over Europe at 9/1. In 2004 and 2006, Europe beat the USA 18.5 to 9.5; that score is going off at 80/1.
Other prop bets include betting on which player will have the best score by country (including America, England, and Ireland) and also who will be the top Wild Card. You can also bet on who will hole the winning putt in this year’s Ryder Cup, with Tiger currently favored at 12/1.
