THE Ryder Cup is one of the biggest events on the golfing calendar and Sky Bet are marking the occasion with an industry-leading offer.
Place a £10 bet on the top-scorer market and the online firm will give you a £5 free bet every time your player registers a point.
Europe go into the Ryder Cup as underdogs despite having won each of the last three, and it’s to the likes of Justin Rose and the in-form Rory McIlroy they’ll turn with Darren Clarke’s side including six rookies, compared to just two for the US.
McIlroy is favourite to be top-scorer at 6/1, ahead of Dustin Johnson at 7/1. Jordan Spieth is 9/1 from 11/1 shot Rose, whose potential playing partner Henrik Stenson is next at 12/1.
“This offer guarantees punters entertainment throughout the event and it’s already been popular since our launch last weekend,” said Sky Bet’s Sandro Di Michele.
“Punters have been backing Dustin Johnson, who has won his last four Ryder Cup matches, but McIlroy has been supported into favouritism after his win on Sunday.
“McIlroy won his singles match at Gleneagles as well as Medinah before that, and those backing him with Sky Bet will be hoping for at least three points to boost their free bet balance.”
