Betting: Ryder Cup

Reds fans who fancy a flutter on the Ryder Cup this weekend can do so with Betfred, Manchester United's official betting partner.

You could bet, for example, on which golfer will top-score for Europe - your fellow United supporter Graeme McDowell is 20/1 in this market and 33/1 to be the top scorer from either team.

Sergio Garcia is 4/1 favourite to be Europe's top points scorer for Europe, ahead of Padraig Harrington at 11/2.

Europe to retain the Ryder Cup is priced at evens - it's the same for USA to win while the tie is 9/1.

Europe have ended up with a nine-point cushion in their last two successes and it’s 30/1 for the holders to triumph by an 18½-9½ scoreline again.

It's 10/1 for either Ian Poulter or Paul Casey to gain the singles result that wins the trophy. Poulter and Casey are both 3/1 to win their singles matches.

World number two Phil Mickelson is 11/2 joint favourite with Jim Furyk to be the USA's top scorer.
