Golf Betting Preview and Odds Analysis of the 2022 Presidents Cup Tournament

The 2022 President’s Cup returns to the United States this season with the America Team facing off against the International Team at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. The play begins the week of September 19th and concludes on September 25th. Quail Hollow is the annual host of the Wells Fargo Championship and will host the President’s Cup for the first time. Let’s have a closer look at the upcoming 2022 Presidents Cup event, the top 3 players to win the tournament, and the props available so you can bet against the Presidents Cup Odds.

2022 President’s Cup: Odds to Win, Top Three Favorites, and Props

The Americans took home the trophy in 2019 when they defeated the International Team 16-14 at Royal Melbourne Golf Club in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Tiger Woods was the captain of the team, with assistant captains Fred Couples, Zach Johnson, and Steve Stricker.

This time around, Davis Love III is the team captain, along with Couples, Johnson, Stricker, and Webb Simpson as assistants. Trevor Immelman will guide the International squad along with K.J. Choi, Geoff Ogilvy, Camilo Vegas, and Mark Weir as assistants.

The American team is composed of Scottie Scheffler, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Sam Burns, Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, Jordan Spieth, Collin Morikawa, Max Homa, Billy Horschel, Cameron Young, and Kevin Kisner.

On the International side, the eight-man team is led by Hideki Matsuyama, Sungjae I’m, Joohyung Kim, Corey Conners, Adam Scott, Mito Pereira, K.H. Lee, and Sebastian Munoz.

Both American and International players that jumped to the LIV Golf Series were banned from competing in this year’s President’s Cup competition. 

The format of the tournament follows the Ryder Cup in matchplay events. Whether they are solo are pair events, each outcome is worth one point, with the winning side needing 15.5 of the total 30 points to claim victory. 

Day 1 consists of five best ball matches, with Day 2 consisting of five alternate shot competitions. On the third day, there will be four best ball and four alternate-shot matches, and the final day of competition features 12 single-match play events.

Odds to Win

The American team is the betting favorite heading into the action, with having the current odds at -649 for Team USA to take home the President’s Cup trophy. The International team can be grabbed at +510, and if you are feeling a draw, that has the best outcome odds at +1300.

The Americans have dominated the President’s Cup historically since its inception in 1994, winning all but two events. The International team took home the trophy at Royal Melbourne in 1998, and the two sides tied in 2003 at Fancourt Hotel and Country Club in George, Western Cape, South America.

Top Three 

While the lines aren’t out yet for other wagers, you can place on the President’s Cup, one that will be available in which players will earn the most points for their respective teams. 

Looking at the list of players, it is easy to see why the Americans are a heavy favorite. Pros like Scheffler, Cantlay, and Schauffele should easily dominate their matches, but on the flip side, Matsuyama, Im, and Scott are worthy targets for top three-point finishers.

Prop Bets

Additional prop bets will become available the week of the tournament but expect a handful of fun wagers to be available like Top American or International Golfer, the margin of victory by the winning team, individual matchup odds, and the always entertaining “Will there be a Hole-in-One?”
