Odds to be Ryder Cup Top Point Scorer
Odds via DraftKings as of Tuesday.
Justin Thomas and Jon Rahm will look to lead each of their teams to Ryder Cup victory as the individual betting favorites heading into the tournament.
Thomas and Rahm enter with +800 odds to be the top individual point scorer in the tournament, the lowest of any golfers at DraftKings. They’re just ahead of Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele, who are +900.
A trio of golfers come in at +1000: Rory McIlroy, Dustin Johnson and Patrick Cantlay. Cantlay is the defending FedExCup Playoff champion. Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland are tied at +1200.
Individuals win a point as individuals each time his team earns a point in a match the golfer is a part of. For example, if Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau are paired in a fourball matchup against Matthew Fitzpatrick and Jon Rahm, each individual in the winning group will receive a point. Half-points are awarded for ties.
At the last Ryder Cup in 2018, Francesco Molinari was the leading point-getter, scoring five points for the victorious Europe team. Justin Thomas and Tommy Fleetwood were second with four points.
From a team standpoint, Team USA is the favorite to lift the trophy at -190 over the European underdogs at +160. In the event of a tie, the defending champion retains the title. That means if there’s a tie, Europe will lift the cup.
In a three-way market, USA is -200 to win with Europe set at +200. A tie is +1200.
