The 2023 Ryder Cup begins on Friday, as the United States looks to build on its 19-9 win over Europe in 2021. The biennial event was originally scheduled for 2022, but the 2020 edition was postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19. Italy beat out Austria, Germany and Spain in the bidding war for this event, with Rome's Marco Simone Golf and Country Club serving as the host.
Each match is worth one point in the match play event, with a total of 28 points available. All matches are played to a maximum of 18 holes, with 14.5 points required to win the Cup. Luke Donald will serve as the captain of Team Europe, while Zach Johnson is the captain of Team USA. The Americans opened as favorites but Team Europe is now the slight -105 favorite in the latest 2023 Ryder Cup odds, with Team USA at +110. A tie would return +1100.
Before you lock in your 2023 Ryder Cup picks, you NEED to see the best bets and predictions from golf expert Patrick McDonald.
After spending time at FanSided and NBC Sports EDGE, McDonald joined CBS Sports as a golf writer in 2022. Now covering the sport from a broader perspective, McDonald still likes to dip his toes into the betting pools on a weekly basis on the PGA Tour. Since July, McDonald has gone 11-6-1 with his head-to-head picks, including an 8-1 record over the last three weeks of last season. He also nailed Russell Henley to be the first-round leader in the Wyndham Championship, at 40-1 odds.
One of McDonald's top 2023 Ryder Cup early prop bets includes Xander Schauffele finishing as the top points scorer at 15-1 odds. Schauffele was hot down the stretch of the 2022-23 season, finishing in second place in the PGA Tour Championship. He ranked third on the PGA Tour in total strokes gained and fourth in stroked gained from putting. Schauffele has experience playing in this event, going 3-1 in his four matches as the Americans cruised to a 19-9 win in 2021.
McDonald has also found a top early prop bet that has an even BIGGER payout! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any 2023 Ryder Cup picks.
