Bet on Olazabal guiding Europe to 2012 Ryder Cup victory

| 18.01.2011

Jose Maria Olazabal has been named the European 2012 Ryder Cup captain resulting in Europe being priced at 1/1 to beat the USA in the 2012 Ryder Cup betting.

Olazabal’s appointment is sure to infuse enthusiasm throughout the European Team, and the Ryder Cup legend is a popular choice amongst many to guide Europe to victory.

The Spaniard has been a vice-captain in the previous two Ryder Cup tournaments and has been a player in seven Ryder Cups where he lost just 10 of his 31 matches.

His partnership with fellow countryman Seve Ballesteros has been described as the greatest Ryder Cup twosome of all time and under the guidance of such an esteemed veteran, Europe can head to Chicago confident of retaining the trophy.

New customers wishing to place a bet on the 2012 Ryder Cup can sign up here and claim a free bet worth £25.

“This is my proudest moment,” said Olazabal. “Golf has been my life and representing Europe in the Ryder Cup has given me so much enjoyment.”

Medinah Golf Club in Chicago, Illinois, will be the setting for the 2012 Ryder Cup and Tiger Woods is already in the Ryder Cup betting and is 8/1 to be the top overall points scorer at the 2012 Ryder Cup.

The USA team are also 1/1 to win the 2012 Ryder Cup and Tiger Woods will be hopeful that he can inspire his country to victory after just missing out at the Celtic Manor in 2010.

The draw is available at 10/1 but the last time a Ryder Cup was drawn in 1989, and considering there have only been two draws in the 84-year history of the Ryder Cup, punters would be better off backing a team to win.

A £25 stake on Europe winning the Ryder Cup would return £50. New customers can sign up here for a free £25 bet.
