Fans Back U.S. in Ryder Cup Odds at Sports Gambling

Ryder Cup odds show Europe a very small favorite over the United States in the Ryder Cup which begins on Friday but fan support will be heavily in favor of the U.S. team.

The United States will get the support of the home fans in Kentucky and that could be important in terms of Ryder Cup golf odds. Ryder Cup odds history shows that the U.S. has lost the last three Ryder Cups and five of the last six in Ryder Cup odds. U.S. Captain Paul Azinger believes that the home fans can play a role this weekend.

"If I could hand pick any place in the country this would probably be the spot. I think they will be behind us.” Azinger said, "The message to the crowd is be enthusiastic, raucous, crazy if you like, but keep it all within the realm of good sportsmanship.

"This is the first time that the United States is an underdog in Ryder Cup odds when the competition has been played in the U.S. "We have everything to gain in this situation, not a lot of people expect us to pull this off, minus Tiger Woods, but hopefully they will be free-wheeling out there. That's my hope." Azinger said.

Friday’s Ryder Cup odds should be interesting as both teams look to get off to a good start in fourball and foursome play. It is possible that all of the players could see action in terms of Ryder Cup odds although Azinger might not play all of his 12. "I'm going to play them all the first day. I'm going to get 12 out against his eight. I thought that would be good tactics," Europe captain Nick Faldo said.

Although Europe is favored slightly in Ryder Cup odds it is the American team that seems to be getting more of the action from gamblers wagering on Ryder Cup golf odds. The action on the U.S. has seen the Ryder Cup odds drift down to where they are virtually a pick on the Ryder Cup golf odds board.

That action in Ryder Cup golf odds could be due to the home course advantage, the perceived chemistry problems of the European team or just the “due theory.” Europe has dominated Ryder Cup odds action of late but perhaps 2008 is the year the American team wins in Ryder Cup odds.
