  • The 2018 Ryder Cup will take place at Le Golf National in Paris from Sept. 28-30.
  • You can bet on the over/under for each golfer's point total for the weekend, and three of our experts predicted each prop. See all of them below!

The 2018 Ryder Cup is almost here, and there are tons of ways to wager on the event.

One the Action Network staff will be paying attention to is the over/under on each player’s point total for the weekend. For each matchup, the winning player or team will get one point for a win and a half-point for a draw.

A few of our golf experts — Jason Sobel, Joshua Perry and Bryan Mears — predicted all 24 over/under props below. Some they disagreed on, but there are quite a few in which they came to a unanimous conclusion.

Check it out.

Team USA

Bryson DeChambeau: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

DeChambeau will likely be paired with Tiger Woods, who is as popular as he’s ever been, especially coming off his first win since 2013. All eyes will be on this tandem if they’re together. Can Bryson handle the pressure? — Bryan Mears

Tony Finau: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Over

Finau is set up brilliantly for fourball play. Even if distance is less of a factor, he’ll still make his mark. — Bryan Mears

Rickie Fowler: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Under
Mears: Over

He has finished in the top 30 of every event since the Players Championship in early May, and he’s coming off a Sunday round of 65 at the Tour Championship. He’s playing some of the best golf of his career right now. — Bryan Mears

More Fowler predictions, trends and analysis


Dustin Johnson: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

DJ’s incredible distance off the tee is always an advantage, but it’ll be especially beneficial to the U.S. team in fourball matches (best ball). — Bryan Mears

More Johnson predictions, trends and analysis


Brooks Koepka: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Depending on the conditions, Le Golf National could take driver out of many players’ hands, which would negate a major advantage that Koepka owns. — Jason Sobel

More Koepka predictions, trends and analysis


Phil Mickelson: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Mickelson owns so much match play experience that he’ll notice certain little signals to decipher when his opponent is vulnerable. That can be an invaluable quality when everything else is so closely matched on paper. — Jason Sobel

More Mickelson predictions, trends and analysis


Patrick Reed: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Since winning the Masters in April, it’s been only a so-so year for Reed, who hasn’t exactly struggled but hasn’t played his best golf, either. — Jason Sobel

More Reed predictions, trends and analysis


Webb Simpson: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Four years ago, Simpson led off this event by sky-balling a tee shot and getting pummeled alongside partner Bubba Watson, setting the tone for an uninspired effort from the U.S. team. — Jason Sobel

More Simpson predictions, trends and analysis


Jordan Spieth: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Spieth has a tendency to get a little wild off the tee, and that will cause problems in France. — Joshua Perry

More Spieth predictions, trends and analysis


Justin Thomas: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Thomas was the one member of the U.S. team to make the trek to France and play in the European Tour event. He played pretty solid there and ended up just a few strokes off the pace set by Alex Noren. He’s the only one who will really know what this course can look like with a tournament setup. — Joshua Perry

More Thomas predictions, trends and analysis


Bubba Watson: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Bubba has never won a singles match, and he’s never won an alternate shot match. Zero points in five tries. There might be a little buzz on Bubba because he won the PGA’s match play event in March, but I don’t see that carrying over. — Joshua Perry

More Watson predictions, trends and analysis


Tiger Woods: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Under
Mears: Over

Like the majority of the U.S. team, he struggles with accuracy off the tee. If he can keep it in play, his game will fit Le Golf National just fine. He has also really struggled in the team portion of the Ryder Cup, going just 9-16-1 in fourball and alternate shot. — Joshua Perry

More Woods predictions, trends and analysis


Team Europe

Paul Casey: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Casey remains one of the world’s preeminent second-shot masters. His high percentage of greens in regulation should make him a tough out in every match, as he doesn’t make too many mistakes and keeps himself in every hole. — Jason Sobel

More Casey predictions, trends and analysis


Tommy Fleetwood: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Fleetwood has proven himself to be a big-game hunter, playing some of his best golf on some of the game’s biggest stages. There’s no reason to believe that won’t correlate to this event as well. — Jason Sobel

More Fleetwood predictions, trends and analysis


Sergio Garcia: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Last year’s Masters champion has appeared a mediocre shell of himself for months. — Jason Sobel

More Garcia predictions, trends and analysis


Tyrrell Hatton: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Much like teammates Ian Poulter and Jon Rahm, Hatton owns a famous temper — one that he struggles to control during inopportune moments. It’s easy to see him getting down in a match and getting too frustrated, as opposed to letting his emotion fuel a comeback. — Jason Sobel

More Hatton predictions, trends and analysis


Rory McIlroy: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

McIlroy is above .500 for Europe in all three Ryder Cup formats. They can pair him with anyone on the team and feel comfortable going out and being the favorite to get a point. — Joshua Perry

More McIlroy predictions, trends and analysis


Francesco Molinari: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

When Molinari’s game is on, he’d be a dream partner. He rarely misses a fairway or a green, so his partners know they’ll usually be hitting from good positions. — Joshua Perry

More Molinari predictions, trends and analysis


Alex Noren: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

When the European Tour went to Le Golf National this year, Noren claimed the title. He’s got the game to play well here obviously, and he’s a guy Europe can pair with pretty much anyone. — Joshua Perry

More Noren predictions, trends and analysis


Thorbjorn Olesen: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Olesen recorded his only bad result in the past few months at this course when he missed the cut. Couple that with any rookie being an unknown in this competition, and it’s unlikely Europe would put him in the foursome format with his inaccuracy off the tee. — Joshua Perry

More Olesen predictions, trends and analysis


Ian Poulter: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

No one has been more devastating to U.S. Ryder Cup hopes since the turn of the century than Ian Poulter. He morphs into Best Golfer on the Planet every two years in this spot. Since 2004, the U.S. team beat him exactly four times in 18 matches. — Joshua Perry

More Poulter predictions, trends and analysis


Jon Rahm: Over/Under 1.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Rahm can bomb the driver and pile up birdies with the best of them. He’s likely to be a problem for the U.S. in this competition for the next 20 years. — Joshua Perry

More Rahm predictions, trends and analysis


Justin Rose: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Over
Perry: Over
Mears: Over

Rose has been the model of consistency this year. Every part of his game is in form, including the putter that has held him back in the past. He fits in every format and really has no weakness. — Joshua Perry

More Rose predictions, trends and analysis


Henrik Stenson: Over/Under 2.5 Points

Sobel: Under
Perry: Under
Mears: Under

Stenson’s form has been inconsistent this year, as an elbow injury has hampered him over the past few months. He hasn’t really taken much time off, but his results have definitely been below his standard. — Joshua Perry

More Stenson predictions, trends and analysis
