McIlroy European Points Scorer Fav In Ryder Cup

With Europe’s team captain, Paul McGinley naming Ian Poulter, Lee Westwood and Stephen Gallacher as his wild cards for team Europe…

…all eyes will be on Europe at Gleneagles at the end of the month.

Having initially been installed at 4/5 to retain the Ryder Cup, Europe have hardened into 4/7 with the USA priced at 7/4 to win a 26th Ryder Cup since 1927 whilst a tie is priced at 10/1.

We’ve priced up a Ryder Cup Top Overall Points Scorer with World Number 1, Rory McIlroy, heading the betting at 8/1. Justin Rose is next in the betting at 12/1 alongside Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.

McIlroy, who won three points from five for Team Europe in the last Ryder Cup at the Medinah Country Club, heads the betting at 9/2 to record the most points for team Europe this year.

His nearest rival in the betting is Justin Rose at 6/1 who also recorded three points for Europe in 2012 whilst its 7/1 for Sergio Garcia, Henrik Stenson and Ian Poulter, who managed to register a maximum four points from 4 in 2012.

From team USA, Rickie Fowler heads the betting at 9/2 to be USA’s Top Overall Points Scorer whilst Bubba Watson is currently priced at 10/1 with each way 1/4 odds 1,2,3 places on offer.

Rory McIlroy is already proving a popular selection at 8/1 to record the most overall points in the tournament and our traders are expecting the 8/1 to dry up sooner rather than later as they expect customers to latch onto McIlroy following his success so far in 2014.
