Australia Leads World Cup of Golf Odds

Australia Leads World Cup of Golf Odds - Bovada Sportsbook

Australia won the World Cup of Golf the last time the tournament was held back in 2013, and they’re the favorites to walk away with the title once again at the international event this week.

Australia sits as the +450 favorite on the odds to win the World Cup of Golf, with the tournament being held at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne. Jason Day and Adam Scott teamed up for the Australians to win the World Cup of Golf in 2013, but with Day passing on the tournament this time around, Scott will instead pair up with Marc Leishman as they try to defend the title. Scott sits at No. 7 in the world rankings, with Leishman ranked at No. 54.

 

United States Follows on Betting Lines

The United States then sits at +700 on the World Cup of Golf odds, but like Australia, they won’t have their top-ranked players at the tournament this week either. Representing the Americans in Melbourne this week will be Rickie Fowler and Jimmy Walker, who sit at No. 12 and No. 20 in the world rankings. Jordan Spieth, Dustin Johnson, and Bubba Watson are all missing the tournament for the United States. Walker won the PGA Championship this year.

Joining the Americans at +700 is Japan, with No. 6 Hideki Matsuyama leading the way while partnered with No. 100 Ryo Ishikawa. Matsuyama is the highest ranked golfer in the field in Melbourne, with five Top-10 results in majors on his resume. Japan won this event in 2002.

Spain is then at +800, with England, Sweden, and Ireland at +1200. The Spanish team features No. 32 Rafael Cabrera-Bello and No. 131 Jon Rahm, with Sergio Garcia not participating. Neither Danny Willett or Justin Rose will play for England, which offers up a team of No. 38 Chris Wood and No. 46 Andy Sullivan. No. 9 Alexander Noren teams up with No. 66 David Lingmerth for Sweden, with Henrik Stenson skipping the event. Ireland won’t have Rory McIlroy, but they’ll feature No. 43 Shane Lowry and No. 83 Graeme McDowell.

Longer shots on the board include Belgium (+1400), Denmark (+1800), Thailand (+2000), South Korea (+2200), Italy (+2500), and France (+2800), with New Zealand at +3000 and South Africa – minus Branden Grace, Louis Oosthuizen and Charl Schwartzel – set at +3300.

In total, 28 countries will be in the field for the World Cup of Golf, which runs from Thursday to Sunday. The tournament will alternate four-ball and alternate shot days over the 72 holes.
