“It’s a great honour and a dream come true to be the captain at home in Scotland.” Catriona Matthew said “I have always loved playing in The Solheim Cup. Scotland will provide the perfect stage for The 2019 Solheim Cup and Gleneagles will be a terrific venue. I was lucky enough to win there in 1998 and there is nothing better than winning in your home country.” Which explains why when it comes to the 2019 Solheim Cup Odds Catriona Matthew is calm.
With revelations emerging that the US Ryder Cup team were at odds with each other from the off and didn’t really like each other speaks much to the final result, where they lost 17½ to 10½ and as Reed blames Spieth and everyone looks at Jim Furyk there’s just a glimmer of hope for those who like to bet on sports in the UK and are contemplating backing the European ladies, after all, they too could fall upon each other under the pressure just as easily as Tiger Woods and Co did.

Of course within those 2019 Solheim Cup Odds Catriona Matthew can also find some solace since the US are only set at around 3/5 and in a two-horse race that might not be far enough for comfort. The Ryder Cup produced Moliwood (the teaming of Francesco Molinari and Tommy Fleetwood) and it remains to be seen if the ladies game can produce the same sort of pairing in Scotland next year. Catriona will be hoping so, possibly as much as the Americans aren’t.
“She has had a wonderful Solheim Cup career,” said Annika Sorenstam from who Catriona takes over, “and she deserves the opportunity to take on this prestigious role. With the next Solheim Cup taking place in Scotland, her home country, it’s the perfect scenario for her to lead the European Team.” And with all perfect scenarios comes the fairytale finish dream that will have fans racing to take advantage of UK gambling laws at Bet365 just so they can be in on the win.

In The 2019 Solheim Cup Odds Catriona Matthew Lags
Of course whilst in the 2019 Solheim Cup Odds Catriona Matthew may not entirely bask comfortably they are by no means much of a comfort to US captain Juli Inkster who takes on the role for an unprecedented third time and is energized to take the challenge to Europe in Scotland. “This is an unbelievable honor and one I do not take lightly,” Inkster said. “I’m so stoked to be able to take the U.S. Team to Scotland, the home of golf, to compete in the 2019 Solheim Cup.”
2019 Solheim Cup Odds
- Draw – 12/1
- Europe – 15/8
- USA – 3/5
However, it will be interesting to see if her confidence has been rattled by the Ryder Cup loss and the knowledge that home course advantage almost puts at 13th player on the team. America has issues winning away from home, as do Europe, so it’ll be doubly difficult for the visitors to Gleneagles (due for use in the 2020 Ryder Cup too) and so due to those 2019 Solheim Cup odds Catriona Matthew may not be alone in the UK gambling news next year will be of a Euro win.
