Attention punters: Your Ryder Cup betting odds and ends
By Stephanie Wei under Ryder Cup

Per usual for every major or massive golf event, there’s a bevy of various bets you can place. You know, if it were legal in the United States of America (land of the free!). Oh wait, but it is here in Scotland, so I’ll be making my second donation of the year to the British economy (not like I already haven’t basically been robbed by the European Tour via the Merchandise Tent)! 

Below is essentially the potpourri of bets — courtesy of Bovada — that you can make on the Ryder Cup this week, which officially begins with the first matches on Friday. (Can it be here any sooner?!?)  As we know, Europe is the slight favorite, and while I kind of stay unbiased for the Ryder Cup (I do a very American thing and root for the individual players I like the most), I always love an underdog, so expect me to put some sterling down on the U.S. winning 14.5-13.5 or 15-13 at 11/1 odds.

Got any other suggestions? Favorite bets? Zaniest bets? Thoughts? Drop them below.
