Sky Bet up for the Cup!

Sky Bet have really gone to town with huge variety of markets to bet on as the build-up to the Ryder Cup at Medinah continues.

The 39th Ryder Cup could be the biggest ever

So you don't have to satisfy yourself with betting on just the outcome, result or top point scorer from either Europe or the USA at Sky Bet this week.

You can get involved right from the first shot with Sky Bet pricing up who will hit the opening tee shot of the event in Chicago while they are also betting on which side will be the first to go one or two up.

There are plenty of markets involving individual players too so if you fancy Rory McIlroy to do well - or badly - there is a bet in amongst all the specials for that. The dual major winner is 20-1 to score no points this week.

If you feel you are a bit of a Ryder Cup strategist then the perfect market is on Sunday as Sky Bet have quoted odds on who will be first out in the singles for the two respective teams.

If Davis Love III goes for an American big gun to lead the way then Phil Mickelson is on offer at 6-1 while in-form Brandt Snedeker is a 12-1 chance.

You can back players to get a hole-in-one - Tiger Woods is a 100-1 chance to achieve that for example - while an 8-0 whitewash for one side or the other on day one or two is on offer at 40-1.

Sky Bet's head of golf trading John Rhodes said: "This could be our biggest ever Ryder Cup from a trading point of view and we are offering more markets than ever before.

"The two teams are pretty well matched and it's likely to be another close fought battle.

"The USA are our favourites but I have no doubt Europe's price will shorten as a wave a patriotic support gathers pace ahead of Friday's opening foursomes action."
