U.S. has Home Field Advantage in Ryder Cup Odds at SBG Global

November 30th, 2010 Golf Betting

Ryder Cup odds have Europe favored over the United States even though the U.S. has home field advantage.

Ryder Cup golf odds show that the competition is being held at Valhalla Golf Club in Louisville, Kentucky.  Ryder Cup odds have Europe favored against the United States for a couple of main reasons.  First, they have won eight of the last eleven competitions in Ryder Cup odds and Tiger Woods is injured and not on the U.S. team.

Ryder Cup odds have Europe as about a 13/10 favorite. The home field is definitely in favor of the U.S. though in Ryder Cup golf odds, especially since Kenny Perry and J.B. Holmes are from Kentucky. Perry has won three times this year and Holmes is the long-ball hitter. Ryder Cup odds have Phil Mickelson as the most notable name for the U.S. while Europe has Sergio Garcia and Padraig Harrington.

Ryder Cup odds history shows that the Europeans have won the past three Ryder Cups and five of the past eight. The U.S. was blown out in Ryder Cup odds in 2004 and in 2006, as neither competition was close.  Many people that look at Ryder Cup odds and notice that Tiger Wood is not on the U.S. team will immediately discount the chances of the United States. That might not be wise considering Tiger was never really that great in Ryder Cup golf odds except in singles.

Europe is favored in Ryder Cup odds because on paper they have the better players. Padraig Harrington has won the past two majors and could be considered the best player in the world with Woods injured.  Sergio Garcia has always been great in Ryder Cup golf odds and Henrik Stenson and Robert Karlsson are playing as well as anyone. The U.S. has Mickelson but he continually chokes under pressure and rarely lives up to his talent in Ryder Cup odds. The U.S. also has six Ryder Cup rookies, although that might not be bad news considering the recent Ryder Cup odds history of the U.S. team.
