Odds to Win the 2019 Presidents Cup

Odds to Win the 2019 Presidents Cup

It may not possess the glitz and glamor of the Ryder Cup, but the 2019 edition of the Presidents Cup presents a litany of betting opportunities for golf bettors in an otherwise quiet time of the year for the sport. According to sportsbooks, the United States is the heavy favorite to win the trophy for the 11th time over the International team.

The Americans are listed as -275 chalk at Bovada to emerge triumphant at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia. The International team is coming back as a +250 underdog, with the odds of a tie priced at +1200.

Internationals Have Had Success in Australia

This is the third time Royal Melbourne has been the setting for the Presidents Cup, having previously hosted the tournament in 1998 and 2011. The 1998 event remains the only win for the International team since the Presidents Cup was established in 1994, with Team USA winning every other time outside of a tie in 2003.

Team USA is coming back to the Presidents Cup on the heels of a lopsided 19-11 victory in 2017 at Liberty National Golf Club in New Jersey. Tiger Woods is set to captain the American side for the first time in his storied career, while Ernie Els will lead the charge for the Internationals. Woods chose Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker as his assistants. Els opted for K.J. Choi, Geoff Ogilvy, Trevor Immelman and Mike Weir to be by his side down under.

The International team roster is determined by the top eight players with the most Official World Golf Ranking points between August 27, 2018 (Dell Technologies Championship) and August 18, 2019 (BMW Championship) along with four captain’s picks. The number of captain’s picks was increased from two to four since the 2017 tournament.

Team USA is Stacked

The American team roster features the eight players who earned the most official FedExCup points from the 2017 BMW Championship to the 2019 BMW Championship, with points earned in the 2018-19 PGA Tour campaign counting double, along with four captain’s picks.

Teeing it up for the International team will be Marc Leishman, Hideki Matsuyama, Louis Oosthuizen, Adam Scott, Abraham Ancer, Li Haotong, Pan Cheng-tsung and Cameron Smith. Countering for the United States are Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, Dustin Johnson, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Webb Simpson, Matt Kuchar and Bryson DeChambeau.

Captain’s Picks are In

Els announced on November 7 that Sungjae Im, Adam Hadwin, Joaquin Niemann and Jason Day were his captain’s picks for the International team. The next day, Woods chose himself, Tony Finau, Patrick Reed and Gary Woodland to compete for the American side. 

Just how lopsided is the Presidents Cup looking? All four of the United States captain’s picks are ranked higher in the world rankings than every single player on the International team’s 12-man roster.
