Default The Official MW Ryder cup thread???

Big week coming up.

What I am looking for is some thoughtful analysis and some ideas of where people are playing. Will books have up the foursome matches on the day of the tourney or we will be stuck with just betting the match??

If anybody sees some props- like player points would be interesting as well.

Thanx for reminding me, Buzz....I saw Europe at +165 a couple of weeks back and was going to check out some other books for prices, then football began and I forgot all about it. I think it's a toss-up this year, and I have to make sure that I don't get sucked into one of those 3 way bets, ie. europe/USA/draw. Of course, if I could get 10-1 on a draw, I think one is very possible. I will check out some books tomorrow here in Vegas for prices and report back here! (i couldn't find any prices online...can anyone else?)

NBC did a great preview of the Ryder Cup yesterday. Hal Sutton said he was not going to be fair and make sure that everyone got to play. The best players will play the majority of the matches. He told Tiger he was going to put him in 5 matches with players that he could win 5 points in return he wanted his focus and enthusiasm.

I think this is a huge shift in philosophy from the other captains. Tiger and Furyk in the foursomes and four-ball would be great.

Sutton said if I am going to get the blame on this thing, I am going to play the best players-- see he gets it. I already have the U.S at -140 with the intention of buying back on Europe this week. I may not do that now.

Wow...-140 on the USA? that doesn't sound good for me getting europe at +165 or higher!!! guess I shoulda taken them at +165 when I saw it 2-3 weeks ago....I am pulling for the USA of course, but if europe goes to +165 or higher, I gotta take it....i think this is a legitimate toss-up

europe are +205 with betfair and you'll probably get +210 but this does include a tie option. USA are -150. the tie being +1150.

I took Tiger +350 to win the most points for the US at CRIS- if what I am reading is correct he is going to play every match and have good partners.

I took Luke Donald +800 to win the most points for the European side. Love the way he is playing right now.

the line opened a few weeks ago at MGM, USA -185/europe +165. I thought europe would go up; I was wrong, but it only went down to +160, so i made a small bet on them hoping I lose! Go USA!!!

I'm going to bet half my roll on the US, ties cancel. This is a lock and I'm going for it. I only have 2 accts., so Pinny gets the nod. What is it now, -160? I'm not down yet, hoping for the Euro money to come in Tues. or Wed. At -150 I'll be happy.

I see Tiger playing strongly, making up for his ranking drop. He can be the toughest match play golfer out there. Sutton needs to get him focused, and I think he will.

Every Ryder cup gets more and more important. It's not just a pain in the pro's ass anymore. It used to be---just making the team was the important part. The match itself was just vacation. Now, winning is important.

I like Cink at 10-1 to be USA top scorer. His form is excellent of late, so he should play in a lot of matches, and I like his putting form in head to head play.

I like Toms to be the top US scorer and Clarke to be the top European.

I took Clarke, top European, 7.06. I also took Woods, top American for 4.21.
16-12 exact score, USA wins at 11.86. And USA wins, for the big bet. 1.581.

I really don't care who plays who, or how often, this handicaps out as a walkover for the US.

Besides, I'm 7-1 at the Valero open so far, and I'm hot, hot.

Am i going mad or something? Toms & Furyk +142 against Garcia & Westwood +116 with the tie at +640. - all at Betfair. This has got to be wrong. How can Toms/Furyk be the dogs? Westwood is only on the team because of his early season form and Furyk/Toms are some of the more reliable members of the US squad - think Toms could be top pointscorer. Secondly the US are at home and although I rate Garcia the odds should be the other way round. Simply a value bet - if you do these all year you won't be in the red.

Thanks for the heads up VM---I went over and grabbed some at Pinny.
Toms is better than Garcia, and Furyk is WAY better than Westwood. No way underdogs. CIP.
