Sunday Singles

With Europe trailing by three points heading into the final session, they need a red hot, Rory inspired start to have any chance of keeping the Cup out of those American hands. With some comfortable winners already in the bag, here is how I see the singles matches going (I’ve displayed decimal odds from betfair – e.g. 3=2/1, 1.8=0.8/1):

Reed (3) v McIlroy (1.8)

This’ll be tight but given I’ve got McIlroy for top European points scorer, I’m hedging my bets by siding with Reed here, who produced a truly remarkable iron display in the Saturday fourballs.

Spieth (2.5) v Stenson (2.1)

Looked shattered yesterday afternoon but a good sleep should see young Spieth back to his old self.

JB Holmes (2.5) v Pieters (2.1)

Pieters. Man On Fire. Who read my blog tipping him for best rookie?

Fowler (2.62) v Rose (2.0) Tie (6.5)

Neither player has played particularly well. If I had to choose one I’d side with the American, purely because Rose has been cold with the putter all weekend.

Walker (2.25) v Cabrera-Bello (2.3)

Played fantastically with Sergio and has a 3rd place at the 2016 WGC Matchplay too.

Mickelson (2.3) v Garcia (2.25)

A little surprised that Garcia is favourite out of these two Ryder Cup heavyweights. Mickelson loves this kind of stage, this’ll be one to watch.

Moore (2.0) v Westwood (2.62)

Point for the States. This is as close to a license to print money you’re ever going to find.

Snedeker (2.0) v Sullivan (2.62)

Snedeker really has too much for Sullivan, who doesn’t have the short game that will get the American over the line.

D. Johnson (1.53) v Wood

betfair isn’t even bothering to offer odds on Wood. This could be a rout.

Koepka (1.9) v Willett (2.75) Tie (7.0)

Got the feeling his playing partner Westwood’s abysmal showing yesterday was infectious. My gut says Koepka will nick it but Willett does have a hot short game – a tie at 6/1 seems a fine compromise to me.

Kuchar (1.7) v Kaymer (3.2)

Need I say more. Next.

Z. Johnson (1.8) v Fitzpatrick (3.0)

Fitz won the U.S. Amateur for a reason. It’ll probably all be over by the time it gets to these guys but 2/1 for the Englishman seems good value either way.
