Ryder Cup: Europe On The Drift

William Hill can report that less than 10% of all bets placed with them on the Ryder Cup have been for Darren Clarke’s side and as a result Europe have drifted out to 15/8 from an original 5/6. The USA are now 8/15.

“On paper the European team is lacking in depth and punters are piling on team USA as if the result had already been decided,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Mcllroy will need to be on form for Europe to stand a real chance and he is 4/1 to be the team’s top scorer, with Danny Willett 10/1.
