Patrick Reed Offers Value In The Top Ryder Cup Points Scorer Betting

The Top Combined Points Scorer bracket at the Ryder Cup refers to the player who racks up most points over the course of the three days. With that in mind, you want a player who is going to appear in all five matches for their side and we have got a couple of tempting each-way fancies for this particular market...

  • Patrick Reed went unbeaten on his Ryder Cup debut in 2014 - Won 3, Halved 1, Lost 0
  • Justin Rose has finished in the top-three of the combined points scorer standings in all three of his Ryder Cup appearances

The Favourites

It is Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy who head the Top Combined Points Scorer market as 15/2 joint-favourites with Betfair and it is easy to understand why they lead the way. McIlroy arrives at Hazeltine off the back of his money-spinning win at the Tour Championship as he ended the season in red hot form, while Dustin Johnson has arguably been the form man of a breakthrough year that saw him win three tournaments, including the US Open.

Recent form doesn't always guarantee Ryder Cup success, although it can't hurt, and we certainly wouldn't be telling anyone to swerve the pair.

However, we just fancy there is each-way value to be found, although not with Phil Mickelson and his 39% win-rate in Ryder Cup matches or Rickie Fowler and his failure to win in eight previous attempts at the Ryder Cup.

Patrick Reed Offers Value

Instead, we prefer to back Patrick Reed from Team USA in this particular bracket as the American has the sort of temperament to shine in this team scenario. He was unfairly pilloried for an interview he gave a few years back in which he came across as a touch arrogant but that is exactly the type of brashness that can bring Ryder Cup success and it is fair to say that he is delivering on his words.

Eleven top-tens this year is a superb return for a player who rose to the occasion to win The Barclays and secure automatic qualification for the American team just when it looked like he might need a wildcard to get in.

Reed is a player for the big occasion and he thrived on his Ryder Cup debut in 2014, even when others were wilting. Reed went unbeaten at Gleneagles en route to finishing 2nd in the overall points standings with 3.5 points (won 3, halved 1, lost 0).

Reed's partnership with fellow Texan Jordan Spieth tends to flourish, as evidenced by their 2.5 points together at Gleneagles and their relative success in the Presidents Cup. It is safe to assume that Davis Love III will pair them together on Friday and Saturday, with Reed our pick at 14/1 (Betfred).

Kiss From A Rose

Meanwhile, as we have already discussed in our Top European Player Preview, Justin Rose is on the verge of writing himself into the Ryder Cup annuls as a bonafide legend. A win percentage of 64% in the Ryder Cup is simply superb and we will be having an each-way wager on the Englishman to be top overall points scorer, particularly as he has finished no worse than 3rd place for total points in each of his three Ryder Cup appearances - 3rd in 2008, 2nd in 2012, 1st in 2014.

Rose can be backed at 14/1 with Paddy Power.
