2021 Ryder Cup odds, picks: United States favored to beat Europeans at Whistling Straits

2021 Ryder Cup odds, picks: United States favored to beat Europeans at Whistling Straits, the vie

Ryder Cup week has finally arrived. After a frenzied summer full of golf that featured the Olympics in Japan and a thrilling FedExCup Playoffs to cap the season, all eyes turn towards Whistling Straits as teams from the United States and Europe go head-to-head for the biennial matchup.

Because the 43rd Ryder Cup was moved from its normal schedule last year due to the pandemic, the first time the event was postponed since the Sept. 11 terror attacks in 2001, there’s even more anticipation than normal this year as Europe tries to win for the fifth time in its last six tries and the U.S. aims to stand tall as frontrunners attempting to capture their second-straight trophy on home soil.

The U.S. was favored in 2018 only for the Europeans to deliver a stunning 17.5-10.5 blowout, but the Americans are even bigger favorites this time around on their own turf led by a trio of stars in Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay.

Below are the odds heading into the 43rd edition of the Ryder Cup, courtesy of Caesars Sportsbook.

There’s obviously a lot of potential outcomes. While the U.S. is favored and the exact score odds back that up, it does indicate that oddsmakers expect it to be close. Based on the above, the real value lies in betting on a tight win for Europe or for a big win for the U.S. Given recent history, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the U.S. struggle as a favorite so Europe winning 14.5 to 13.5 or 15 to 13 is pretty interesting with 11-1 odds. 

Some of the individual prop bets are worth exploring here as well. Rahm is the favorite to be the leading point scorer, which is no surprise, but a few that stick out there are Cantlay at 11-1 and DeChambeau at 16-1. Cantlay played brilliantly down the stretch of the season and found a groove with his putter, and DeChambeau’s length off the tees should give him a chance to be a factor.
