  • With the pairings set for the Ryder Cup's opening fourball matches, sportsbooks have released odds.
  • The biggest favorite is Europe's Justin Rose and Jon Rahm over USA's Brooks Koepka and Tony Finau.
  • USA's largest favorite is the team of Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, who will be taking on Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton.

The Ryder Cup tees off early Friday morning (or late Thursday night depending on where you live), with morning fourball matches.

Each golfer will be playing his own ball, with the best individual score taking the hole. For example, if Brooks Koepka birdies the first hole and all three other golfers par the hole, USA would be 1-up. (For more rules mumbo-jumbo, check out this post).

The first match tees off shortly after 2 a.m. ET. After these four fourball matches conclude, foursome matches will take place, in which each team member takes turns hitting the same ball.

These are current as of 1 p.m. ET on Thursday, Sept. 27.
