Bookies Brace Themselves For Six-figure Loss With Europe

Leading bookmaker Coral is a top price of 4-6 on Europe winning the 40th Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, while the USA go into the event as the underdogs at 13-8. In the top points scorer markets, Rory McIlroy has been very popular at 4-1 with the firm to top score for the home side, whereas Rickie Fowler heads the betting at 5-1 in the American list.

"Europe are a heavy six-figure loss for us this year so we are hoping the Americans can do us a favour and cause an upset at Gleneagles. We've been happy to take the hosts on as we think America have been underestimated, probably due to the absence of Tiger Woods," said Coral's John Hill.

"In the top points scorer markets, it's been all one-way traffic for Rory McIlroy who punters believe is going to be the key in the hosts defending their trophy," said Coral's John Hill.
