Team USA with leading 2019 Presidents Cup winner betting odds to secure 11th title win
As it stands, the US currently stand the best chance to continue their Presidents Cup reign this year. Fortunately they have the best 2019 Presidents Cup winner betting odds of achieving this at -274 on 1xBET Sportsbook. Additionally, they have an impressive record of 10 wins most recently in 2017 to back up their winning chances.
According to the online sportsbooks news in the USA, Tiger Woods has selected Fred Couples, Zach Johnson and Steve Stricker as assistants. However, there is still no confirmation regarding the full team travelling to Australia. Fortunately, the USA have a strong possible lineup consisting of the current Top 8 U.S PGA Tour players.
This includes Xander Schauffele, Matt Kuchar, Bryson DeChambeau, Brooks Koepka, Webb Simpson, Patrick Cantlay, Justin Thomas and Dustin Johnson. However, Woods will likely have a tough time selecting 4 wildcard picks to complement the rest of the team.
Ernie Els with tough task of leading the International Team to 2nd Presidents Cup victory
The International Team currently have the smallest chance of winning the Presidents despite home advantage this year. Their 2019 Presidents Cup winner betting odds on 1xBET Sportsbook, one of the online sportsbooks in the USA are +280. Consequently, they might be a risky team to wager on. Additionally, their poor record in the PGA Tour competition with one win from 1998 also don’t make their favorable contenders.
As a result, captain Ernie Els will be under pressure to perform miracles in Australia. Ernie Els has also chosen assistants K.J. Choi, Trevor Immelman, Geoff Ogilvy and Mike Weir to travel to Australia. Currently, the Top 8 international players from the Official World Golf Ranking standings to potentially travel to Australia looks promising. These include Adam Scott, Haotong Li, Louis Oosthuizen, Marc Leishman, Cameron Smith, Abraham Ancer, Pan Cheng-tsung and Hideki Matsuyama.
However, golfers Jason Day, Jazz Janewattananond and Justin Harding also have the potential to climb up into the Top 8. If not, they also stand as likely wildcard picks.
2019 Presidents Cup unlikely to end in a tie
No one enjoys a draw, especially not at the Presidents Cup. Fortunately, with 2019 Presidents Cup winner betting odds at +1200, there won’t be any share of the spoils in Australia. There’s only been one occasion in which the competition ended in a tie in 2003 with a 17-17 result. Consequently, betting on a 2019 Presidents Cup draw on 1xBET Sportsbook, might be risky.
