This Week’s Team Championship Comes One Year Late with USA Looking for Payback

2021 Ryder Cup Betting Preview, Golf Tournament Odds, Value Bet, Props and Predictions

The United States used to dominate the Ryder Cup. In fact, from its inception in 1927 until 1983, the Americans went 22-3 against some combination of European countries.

Team Europe has turned the tide since then, posting a tidy 12-5 record in the last 17 events. The teams have however split the last two with team USA winning 17-11 in 2016 while Europe prevailed 17 ½ - 10 ½ in 2018.

The last time we had a nail biter was in 2012 when Europe won 14 ½ -13 ½ for the second straight time.

This year’s tournament comes from Whistling Straits golf course in Kohler Wisconsin. This course was the site of the PGA Championship in 2004, 2010 and 2015. This week will be a Par-71 course and 7,355 yards. The home team, in this case, USA has a clear advantage in that they can set the course to their liking. With USA being filled with power hitters, look for a course that plays fast and firm with light roughs off the fairways.

28 matches will be played over a three-day period, from Friday through Sunday. 12 golfers will tee off from each squad led by PGA Player of the Year and FedEx Champ Patrick Cantlay for USA and the world’s number one golfer, Jon Rahm quarterbacking the European squad.

The format is identical on Friday and Saturday. There will be a total of eight matches each day, four in the morning and four in the afternoon. USA as the home team gets to decide the order of the days. They’ve decided to have opening matches of fourball; 2v2 matches with all four golfers playing their own ball. The afternoon will consist of foursome or 2v2 with each twosome alternating shots with their partner.

On Sunday each golfer goes head-to-head with an opponent from the other country in singles play.

The winner of each match is worth one point and each team gets a half point for a tie. The winning team is the first to 14 ½ points. If they end in a 14-14 tie, Europe will be declared the winner by virtue of being the defending champion.

Team USA always seems to have the higher ranked players and biggest names representing them, but where they seem to run into issues is in the chemistry department. As such much attention has been paid to the rivalry and squabbling between teammates Brooks Koepka and Bryson DeChambeau.

Europe has a 23-17 edge over USA in foursomes in the last five tournaments, which is the format that requires the most teamwork. USA leads 21-19 in four-ball and Europe has the edge 32-28 in the Sunday singles.

That last stat also seems to suggest that in spite, or perhaps because of the bigger names on Team USA, they tend to succumb to some of the Sunday pressure, while Europe plays with less to lose. Europe is 4-1 in the last five Ryder Cups.

On the other hand, on home soil, USA has won two of the last three and outscored Europe 47-37. In each of their two wins, they beat Europe by at least five points. Europe’s win in 2012 was by the slimmest of margins, 14 ½ - 13 ½.

Interestingly enough, USA has consistently gotten off to great starts of late, leading 17-7 in the opening sessions of day one in the last six events. They won five of those sessions and tied the other.

Everyone of team USA’s players are ranked in the top-21 in the world, so they are stronger top-to-bottom.

Europe will be led by Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Paul Casey and Shane Lowry. Experienced vets include Lee Westwood, Sergio Garcia, Ian Poulter and Tommy Fleetwood. Rookies include Viktor Hovland. The most unheralded is likely Bernd Wiesberger who is ranked 63rd in the world.

USA will feature Cantlay, Jordan Spieth, DeChambeau, Koepka, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson and Colin Morikawa. There are six first-timers competing including Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Daniel Berger and Harris English. The last time USA had six rookies they romped to victory in 2008.

The Prediction: (USA -180 & 15.5-12.5 Correct Score +1000)
This event features a team of individual champions taking on a team that often comes together to play like champions. The long fast course favors the Americans, so I’ll stick with recent trends for the home team.

Day 1 Winner Pick: (USA -115 & Correct Score 5.5-2.5 +750)
I think for USA to win the Ryder Cup they need to take some of the pressure off with a terrific Friday.
