What to Bet On
You can also try to land on the exact score of the 3-day event on a wager. Hitting this number pays double figures except for the USA to win 17.5-12.5 or 18-12 as both pay +900 to land on those numbers.
You don’t have to bet on the exact final score. You can bet on the Americans winning by 1-3 points at +550 or the International Team winning by 1-3 points at +850. The shortest odds in this category have the Americans winning by 7 or more points at -120.
Say you have plans on the weekend but can sit back and watch on Friday only, well, you can bet on just one day with the USA -200, the tie at +550 and the International Team to be leading at +250. You can even wager on the exact score on the first day of action.
Will the USA get out to a commanding lead after day one and lead 5-0 (+1600) or imagine the International Team flipped the script and they were up 5-0 (+12500)?
If you only wanted to bet on Presidents Cup rookies or Wildcards, those bets are out there. Before the event begins, you can bet on the score after Day 2. Will it be tied 5-5 (+750), or will the USA be winning 7.5-2.5 or better at (+280).
No matter what interests you have in the event, there is certainly a bet to keep you entertained, whether for a day or a 3-day run.
