Bet on GolfThe 2016 Ryder Cup will not take place until September 30 of that year. It will be held at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Chaska, Minnesota. Details on who will be playing in the Ryder Cup are unclear but a few odds have been set up already. These are the odds for who is expected to win; they suggest that Europe is going to win it all again.
The United States is only listed at +115 to win the Ryder Cup. Meanwhile, Europe has a -120 advantage to win.
Much of this comes from Europe's recent domination of the Ryder Cup. The United States last won this event in 2008. Europe has been more successful in recent time and in 2014 won the event by five points. The series will be coming back into the United States but Europe is still the favorite to win this one thanks to the team's assortment of strong players.
There is also a good sense of uncertainty over who will play for the American team. Davis Love III will be the captain of the American and tom Lehman will be the co-captain. While Love had experience as the captain of the 2012 team, there is a sense of debate over whether stars like Jordan Spieth or Dustin Johnson will actually play for the American side. As always, there will be more than enough talk about whether or not Tiger Woods will even be considered to be on the team.
Naturally, Europe has more than enough talent with Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia among the many options to check out. Darren Clarke of Northern Ireland is the captain for the European team. Whether or not he will take McIlroy, a fellow native of Northern Ireland, is unclear but it could potentially happen. Either way, Europe has a large amount of possibly golfers to choose for the Ryder Cup.
There have only been two ties in the history of the Ryder Cup. The odds for this highly unlikely event to happen are +1000.
