Ryder Cup Matches

The Ryder Cup Odds for 2014 have been live for some time now and with the matches set to get under way, it is Europe who are the slight favourites to retain the cup. The Americans are in Gleneagles in Scotland trying to put Medinah behind them and take the Cup home for the first time since they won in Valhalla in 2008.

Europe claimed a famous victory at Medinah in 2012 to retain the trophy and it promises to be equally exciting in Scotland. The teams are looking fairly even on paper which is reflected in the betting and we really are in for three days of drama.

The Ryder Cup Singles could well be the key again this time around with the 12 players from each team going off against each other. The Europeans produced a stunning comeback to win the Ryder Cup at Medinah in the singles which goes to prove that no team has their hands on the Cup until that winning putt drops.

The USA Ryder Cup Team this year will be captained by Tom Watson, himself a former Ryder Cup player. The team will comprise of some of the top ranked players in the world, such as Rickie Fowler and Phil Mickelson and on paper they will be a very strong team indeed. They will have the extra motivation this time around as they look to regain the trophy after they lost out in tight fashion back at Medinah two years ago

Phil Mickelson is looking back to somewhere near his best and will be an important part of the team alongside some younger American names. Bubbba Watson who won the Masters earlier this year and will be important, while Jordan Speith is one of the best young players in the team and will be making his Ryder Cup debut.

European Ryder Cup Team

The team as always will have a good mix of experience and youthful aggression that has been a winning formula for so long and they will arrive at Gleneagles as keen as ever to win.They will be bidding to defend the trophy in 2014 after winning in 2012 against a resurgent American team, it will be tougher on foreign soil but the Europeans will be confident.

The European Team looks good shape with a good mix of youth and experience making up the team, we will be seeing the likes of Rory Mcilroy, Lee Westwood and Luke Donald leading the away team. Mcilroy in particular is looking in particularly good shape and it would be no surprise to see him leading the Top European Player Betting for the Gleneagles matches.
