Plenty of value to be had this week in the 2016 Ryder Cup betting.

It's the 2016 Ryder Cup and we are coming off a 40/1 win for Alex Levy and 40/1 each way for Ryan Moore so fingers crossed for more good fortune at Hazeltine this week.  For the very latest updated information and odds on the Ryder Cup check out Bet365 live odds.

Outright Winner 

According to the bookmakers the 2016 Ryder Cup is set for a recalibration and they have USA as 8/15 on favourites with Europe now at 2/1.  It’s 11/1 the tie, but the last tie came in 1989 at The Belfry and there has never been one on American Soil!  There's no real value here, except for the very brave!

Top European Points Scorer

Danny Willett to be Europe's star at 12/1

In the top European Points Scorer category Rory McIlroy is 7/2 but after the emotional high of the Tour Championship it’s going to be a tough ask on him.  The real value bet has to be Danny Willett at 12/1.  Even though he is a rookie you have to imagine he’ll take on a leadership role and play more than most.  There’s also five possible English partners for him but you’d have to think you’ll see Danny with Justin or Lee early on day one.  He’s coming off an excellent second at the Italian Open too so the form is good.

Top USA Points Scorer

Pat Reed was born for the Ryder Cup. 11/2 to be USA top points scorer.

In the top USA player market Patrick Reed looks good at 11/2.  Reed won the Barclays in the Playoffs, has nine straight top-25’s on Tour and looks like he’s built for the Ryder Cup.  He was the US player of the 2014 matches winning three and a half points.  His pairing with Jordan Spieth looked awesome; some argue that when Tom Watson dropped them for the afternoon foursomes on day one after they won 5&4 in the morning was one of the key moments of the matches. Reed even took care of Henrik Stenson in the singles. Remember ‘Shushhhh’?  His strength is putting and that’s what wins matches.

Overall Score

The winning score market is interesting.  Would you believe that of the last six Ryder Cups two of them have ended in a scoreline of 16.5 to 11.5 and another two at 18.5 to 9.5?  USA to win 16.5 to 11.5 is 11/1 and they are 22/1 to win 18.5 to 9.5 and you can double those odds for Europe to win by those scorelines.

Whatever happens it’s going to be edge of the seat stuff.  Bring it on!
