Twelve American players take on the best dozen in Europe. And it’s no secret that the USA (-700) has dominated this event over the years, having beaten the international team (+700) in 11 of the 13 events that have been contested. The United States lost to Team International in 1998 and tied the two teams in 2003.

Bets are unlimited when it comes to the Presidents Cup. To choose whether it will end in a tie (+1600) at which golfer will accumulate the most individual points, which has Xander Schauffele (+550) as the favorite for the Americans and Hideki Matsuyama and Sungjae Im (+600) as favorites for the international team.

The all-American star cast includes Xander Schauffele, Scottie Scheffler, Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas, Collin Morikawa, Sam Burns, Tony Finau, Max Homa, Jordan Spieth, Cameron Young, Billy Horschel and Kevin Kisner.

They face an international team consisting of Sungjae Im, Hideki Matsuyama, Corey Conners, Adam Scott, Tom Kim, Christiaan Bezuidenhout, Si Woo Kim, Cameron Davis, Sebastian Munoz, Taylor Pendrith, Mito Pereira and KH Lee.

What to bet on

You can also try to land on the exact score of the 3-day event on a bet. Hitting that number pays double digits, except USA wins 17.5-12.5 or 18-12, as both pay +900 to land on those numbers.

You do not have to bet on the exact final score. You can bet the Americans will win 1-3 points at +550, or the international team will win 1-3 points at +850. The shortest odds in this category have the Americans winning by 7 points or more at -120.

Suppose you have plans for the weekend, but can sit down and watch on Fridays only. Well, you can bet on a single day with the USA -200, the tie at +550 and the international team leading at +250. You can even bet on the exact score on the first day of action.

Will USA take a decisive lead after day one and lead 5-0 (+1600)? Or imagine that the international team turned the script around and were leading 5-0 (+12500)?

Paris Wildcard

If you only wanted to bet on Presidents Cup rookies or wild cards, those bets are there. Before the event starts, you can bet on the score after Day 2. Will it tie 5-5 (+750) or will USA win 7.5-2.5 or better to (+280).

Whatever your interests in the event, there’s sure to be a bet to keep you entertained, whether it’s for a day or a 3-day race.
