Betting Note: Betting amounts are based on confidence level. My normal betting amounts are $125, $250 & $500, although I will go as low as $62.50 and as high as $1,000 on occasion.

E/W (Each-Way) bets means you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5).

This week, the golf world will be focused on the Ryder Cup which occurs every two years. Europe have had a stranglehold on it for the last three tournaments, winning it every time. In 2014 it was a very dominant 16.5-11.5 victory for Europe.

The United States areb ack in home ground this year with the tournament taking place at the Hazeltine National Golf Club in Minnesota, which last hosted a major event in 2009 which was the PGA Championship. Darren Clarke is the captain for Europe while Davis Love III is the captain for the USA.

I’ll be honest – the Ryder Cup is one of my favourite tournaments in golf and I always find it a blast to watch. It’s one of those tournaments where any bets I make are not really made with the intention to win money. If I do then great – but it’s more just to give me something to cheer for along with watching some terrific golf.

Before we get to that – a big thank you to Paul Casey for his place finish in the Tour Championship last week which got us this nice cash:

Ryder Cup 2016 Betting Tips:

Like I said I generally bet casually on the Ryder Cup. So I’d recommend quarter or half units of what you usually bet.

Europe To Win: The price of 15/8 is a great price for Europe and one I have to get behind. Yeah USA have Johnson and Spieth but Spieth is struggling a bit and I have to wonder how long DJ can keep going with this form. I think he will struggle here. I don’t think we’ll see a dominant victory but I do believe it will be close enough that Europe to win at 15/8 is a nice price.

Westwood Top European Wildcard: A nice price on Lee Westwood at 6/4 odds to be the top European Wildcard above Kaymer and Pieters. Only 9 losses in 32 foursomes/fourballs matches for Westwood, and with the amount of rookies in the team this year Westwood will be playing a lot. I can easily see him picking up 3 points on Friday/Saturday.

Europe Top Team Points Scorer: I’m betting Justin Rose the 2nd favourite at 11/2. I’m not fully convinced on Rorys play as we know how erratic he can be. Rose is more composed, had 4 points last year, is on fire with the gold medal and always loves this tournament. 10 points in 3 cup appearances makes me happy with this pick.

That’s my Ryder Cup picks for the week. Enjoy!


Since 2014 I've been providing free golf tips on a weekly basis. Each tournament analysis, research and writing the betting tips takes over 10 hours per tournament. That doesn’t include watching each tournament and taking notes etc. It's why I do less and less non-PGA tips these days.

I’ve delivered a lot of big winners over the years, and all I ask is if you appreciate the work I put in and so I can continue to keep the tips free, a donation is highly recommended and much appreciated.

While I obviously make enough money from my golf bets, this sort of financial support would motivate me to write more content on here. This would include golf prop bets like first round leader, head vs head and much more plus daily fantasy golf articles. Cheers!
