Ryder Cup Winner Odds 2021 - USA Favourites To Win Trophy Back From Europe

Who will win the Ryder Cup 2021? It’s amongst the most popular events in golf and it only comes around every few years. In this article we’ll look at:

Ryder Cup Winner Odds 2021

The United States are the favourites in this year’s Ryder Cup winner odds. This year’s edition of the biennial tournament takes place at Whistling Straits, Wisconsin, USA.

The European team has lifted the trophy in four of the last five tournaments. Padraig Harrington captains Europe for the first time. 9 of the 12 players on the European team got through on points and Harrington picked the other 3.

World number 1 Jon Rahm is the standout name on the European team. He’ll hope for another success in the States after winning his first major at the US Open in June. The Spaniard is the only European player currently in the world top 10 rankings and that seems to have affected the Ryder Cup winner odds.

Team Europe has plenty of Ryder Cup experience. Rory McIlroy, Sergio Garcia, Lee Westwood and Ian Poulter have previously played in 33 Ryder Cups between them.

The United States have won two of the last three editions of the competition that were played on home soil. Captain Steve Stricker announced his captain’s picks in early September. They’ve led in the Ryder Cup winner odds ever since.

Eight of the current top 10 world ranking players are on Team USA. Open champion Collin Morikawa is one of six Ryder Cup rookies in the 12-man squad. Other than captain Stricker, their most experienced Ryder Cup player is Dustin Johnson. The 37-year-old has previously played in four tournaments.

The Ryder Cup is one of the few team events in golf but these are still individual players. Every one of them will aim to become the highest-scoring player in the competition. This is a competitive betting market that features players from both teams.

The Spaniard Jon Rahm is the favourite in this market. Rahm comes into this competition as the highest-ranking player on the planet. He won his first major this year and will look to impress. The bookies expect Rahm to be the outstanding player for the European Team but for the strength in depth of the American squad to win the competition. He’s at 9.00 in the Ryder Cup odds for top combined points scorer.

Justin Thomas is the second-favourite at 11.00 in the Ryder Cup odds. The US player is just ahead of a host of players on 12.00. They include Thomas’ teammates Patrick Cantlay and Jordan Spieth as well as Rory McIlroy. Dustin Johnson isn’t far behind at 13.00.

One popular way to bet on the Ryder Cup is to look at each team’s top-scoring player. Players can earn a maximum of 5 points by winning all of their matches at the competition. Only a couple of players have achieved this feat since the reformatting of the competition in 1979.

There are plenty of candidates for top points scorer for the USA. Steve Stricker already had some of the world’s top talents but added a few more when he selected his picks. Eight of the world’s top 10 ranked golfers are on the team including the 2021 Open Champion Collin Morikawa.

World number 6 Justin Thomas is the favourite with the bookies. His best Ryder Cup odds for top scoring USA player are 8.00. It’s his third involvement at a Ryder Cup. He’s won four of his five previous matches and looks set to impress.

Other leading candidates in this market include Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth and Patrick Cantlay. All three men are available at best-priced odds of 8.50. Of the three, Johnson and Spieth have the most experience in the competition. Both men were part of the 2016 winning team.

The Ryder Cup odds for top European point scorer are a little more closed off. World number 1 Jon Rahm is the big favourite. The Spaniard is available at 4.50 to finish the competition as the top scorer for Team Europe.

It’s only Rahm’s second appearance at a Ryder Cup. He earned a single point from his three matches back in 2018 but has enjoyed a good few years since then.

Rory McIlroy is the second-favourite. The Northern Irishman has been a regular at the Ryder Cup since 2018. He’s a reliable player at this competition and has earned either 2 or 3 points in each of his five appearances.

Tommy Fleetwood and the Norwegian Viktor Hovland are amongst the other favourites in the Ryder Cup odds for top European point scorer. Fleetwood played in 2018 but Hovland is making his Ryder Cup debut. The 24-year-old secured his first PGA Tour wins last year.

The field is a lot wider for the Top Rookie betting odds. There are plenty of new faces in these two Ryder Cup squads. That is only natural considering the three-year gap since the last edition of the tournament.

The bookmakers aren’t really sure which way this one is going with seven players available at odds of 10.00 or lower. The American Patrick Cantlay is the joint-favourite. The 28-year-old has never won a major but won three events including the BMW Championship.

Cantlay is available at 5.50 in the Ryder Cup top rookie betting odds alongside Xander Schauffele. The 27-year-old has been a consistent performer in majors over the last few years. He’s finished in the top 10 in eight of his last 12 appearances at the majors.

The Norwegian Viktor Hovland is at 6.50 just ahead of Collin Morikawa at 7.00. Harris English and Bernd Wiesberger are the only golfers priced at 10.00 or higher.
