Team Europe odds on for next Ryder Cup

2014 09 Untitled37

After defeating America 16 ½ - 11 ½ to clinch their third successive Ryder Cup at Gleneagles yesterday, Team Europe are now odds on to make it four-in-a-row at Hazeltine National GC, Minnesota in 2016.

If you want to place your bets early for the next Ryder Cup contest, you’ll get odds of 10/11 at Ladbrokes for a European win. The Americans, despite being on home soil, remain the underdogs at 11/10 while the draw is an outside bet of 10/1.

Northern Ireland’s Darren Clarke is the favourite to succeed Paul McGinley as captain of Team Europe, with the four-time Ryder Cup winner available at 1/2.

Overall, the Perthshire event was a success for the bookmaker, with many people backing the US to make a ‘Medinah style’ comeback on Sunday. However, that proved too much for the Americans as Jamie Donaldson’s fantastic approach at 15 landed two-feet from the hole, sealing the Ryder Cup and a 5&4 victory over Keegan Bradley.

“At first we were fearing a European victory but we kept them on side in play so as a result we're celebrating too,” said Alex Donohue of Ladbrokes. “Plenty backed the USA to pull off their own comeback but, thankfully, that never materialised.

“It may be a long way off yet but we fancy the European dominance in the competition to continue. The betting suggests Clarke will be in charge when Europe cross the pond in 2016.”


Justin Rose as Team Europe’s top man sees punter win big

It's wasn’t all good news for Ladbrokes, though, as Justin Rose’s exploits as top points scorer triggered a single payout of £100,000. The biggest single bet on the result was also successful, with one Team Europe backer collecting £50,000 following a £30,000 bet at 4/6.
