Ryder Cup Betting Preview

The 2023 Ryder Cup stands out as a highly awaited golf showdown, with Team USA aiming to uphold their 2021 triumph when they dominated Team Europe with a 19-9 victory. Yet, it is worth noting that Team USA has struggled for the past three decades when playing abroad. 

Team USA benefits from the presence of many players returning from their outstanding performance in 2021. Team Europe boasts a mix of returning stars and fresh talents who have excelled this season, which makes a strong case for their success here.

In the European camp, seasoned players such as Sergio Garcia and Ian Poulter are passing the torch to the emerging talents of Viktor Hovland and Ludvig Aberg. Europe's history of success on their home turf bodes well for an even more intense Ryder Cup, promising a heightened level of competition compared to the previous edition.

Friday and Saturday will use the best ball and alternate shot matches. On Sunday, they will cap it off with singles matches.

Team USA vs. Team Europe

Currently, golfers will be competing in the Ryder Cup on two separate teams. Each team is broken down as follows:

Team USA

  • Sam Burns 

  • Patrick Cantlay 

  • Wyndham Clark 

  • Rickie Fowler

  • Brian Harman 

  • Max Homa

  • Brooks Koepka 

  • Collin Morikawa 

  • Xander Schauffele

  • Scottie Scheffler 

  • Jordan Spieth 

  • Justin Thomas

Team Europe

  • Ludvig Aberg 

  • Matt Fitzpatrick

  • Tommy Fleetwood

  • Tyrrell Hatton

  • Nicolai Hojgaard 

  • Viktor Hovland 

  • Shane Lowry 

  • Robert Macintyre 

  • Rory McIlroy 

  • Jon Rahm

  • Justin Rose

  • Sepp Straka

Looking at the best players from both sides, you could argue that Team Europe has the strongest players to round out a top five, with the likes of Rahm, McIlroy, and Hovland easily being forced to reckon with.

However, Scheffer has had another tremendous season, especially against those names. He will likely add his best in addition to Speith and Schauffele.
