  • The 2019 Solheim Cup, the women's golf equivalent of the Ryder Cup, begins at 3 a.m. ET on Friday morning.
  • Team USA is a -175 favorite over Team Europe despite the tournament taking place at Gleneagles in Scotland.
  • Jeremy Pond provides a betting strategy for the bi-annual tournament:

American dominance has reigned supreme in recent editions of the highly anticipated Solheim Cup, the women’s golf equivalent to the Ryder Cup, which tees off Friday at Gleneagles in Scotland.

The United States, led by stars Lexi Thompson, Danielle Kang and Lizette Salas, have utterly ruled affairs against their rival Europeans at the event that occurs every two years, winning six of the last eight Solheim Cup showdowns.

Two years ago, the U.S. earned a 16.5-11.5 victory in Des Moines, Iowa, to repeat as champion and pick up the country’s sixth Solheim Cup win in the last eight meetings with Europe.

A major issue for American team captain Juli Inkster could be the fact her side boasts six players making their Solheim Cup debuts. However, Inkster hopes her newbies can duplicate what happened the last time this many new faces competed at the Solheim Cup.
