Europe and the USA will battle it out for the 2018 Ryder Cup at Le Golf National near Paris this week. Europe have a strong team, blessed with superstars like Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy, Francesco Molinari and Jon Rahm. But they are underdogs against a very strong American team featuring young stars such as Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas and veterans like Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson. However, the USA have not won on European soil since 1993 and Europe therefore look like a good bet at odds of 11/8. That is a compelling price, but Betfair is offering boosted odds of 50/1 on Europe to win the Ryder Cup and that has to be worthy of your consideration. You can only bet £1, but if McIlroy and co roar to victory you will have £50 in free bets to play around with. Your stake will be returned as cash if Europe win the trophy.
