Steve Palmer put his money where his mouth was – literally – and bagged £30k off Tiger Woods’ first win in five years at East Lake last weekend.
The Woods-meister will relish being the ‘big dog’ in Paris again, but needs to be more team player than solo supremo. With the tie pretty evenly matched on the outright market, Palmer has gone for a controversial European top point-scorer pick (below) at 10/1, with Jeremy Chapman on the bag for a 25/1 poke in the Top USA Scorer market.
If any suffer a Phil Mickelson-like dip in form, Paddy Power’s Iain McLaughlin thinks his 3/1 nap in the top rookie market will mop up the pieces. Have a listen (below) to the full show or take the Tiger-line to some of the best bets in the biggest team event in world sport.
A Ryder Cup veteran who despite his recent form slump will be an ‘integral’ part of Team Europe according to captain Thomas Bjorm.
Likely to be paired with Spanish compatriot Jon Rahm in the fourballs and possibly Francesco Molinairi in the Friday afternoon foursomes, the 2017 Masters champ will see plenty of game time. Finished Top 10 at Portugal Open last week and could play in all five matches.
The 2012 US Open champ has bounced back to form big-time this year. He won the Players Championship in a canter for his first win on Tour in four years and his recent form in the FedEx championship run in has been just as strong and finished T4 at East Lake last weekend. He suffered when the anchor putting was banned but has his game in great shape now. He looks good value and you can get 1/5th the first four places with Paddy Power.
He’s odds-on to be the top American rookie but there’s still plenty of juice in the price of JT to be top overall rookie. He should have a massive edge over his compatriots Bryson DeChambeau & Tony Finau as he looks set to play five games. All he has to do then is get some points on the board to outscore the five European rookies in the market.
