The Ryder Cup is one of my all time favorite sporting events to bet on. Golf, in general, is fun to bet on, but when you add the 4-ball and match play formats along with the electricity of the atmosphere that the international competitions bring, there’s nothing else quite like it.

Not only can you bet on which team will win at WynnBET, but you can also bet on individuals to win their daily matchups.

Here are the top three golfers that I plan on backing with my money this weekend.

All odds listed are via WynnBET Sportsbook.

Justin Thomas

Despite the fact that I’m betting on Europe to win the event, I’ll be backing Justin Thomas in his individual matches and a sprinkle on him to be the top points scorer at +900 isn’t a bad idea either.

This will be JT’s second time competing at the Ryder Cup and he was the best American in the 2018 edition of the tournament. He was one of only three golfers who competed in all five rounds, and he held an impressive 4-1 record in those matches.

He also is likely to be paired with Jordan Spieth, and the two have a chemistry together that is unmatched, especially on a U.S. team that is lacking in that category.

Ian Poulter

Ian Poulter is getting up there in age at 45 years old, but he will once again be a force to be reckoned with this weekend. He’s regarded by most as being one of the best Ryder Cup golfers in the history of the sport.

Heading into this weekend, Poulter has a record of 14-6-2 in the Ryder Cup. He’ll also be an automatic bet for me on Sunday in the single match play round, as he holds a 43-18-5 record in single match play, which includes other events like the WGC-Match Play event held yearly.

Collin Morikawa

This will be Collin Morikawa’s first Ryder Cup appearance, but if the odds to lead in points is any indication, he’ll be available at some tempting betting odds throughout the event.

He’s all the way down at +1600 to lead the event in points, which is long odds for the best iron player in the world. Nobody is better with an iron in his hand than Morikawa, and that sort of consistency with approach shots makes him dangerous at the Ryder Cup.
