USA's Tough Build Up Ensures Europe Are The Value For The 2017 Solheim Cup

The fifteenth edition of the Solheim Cup gets underway at Des Moines Golf and Country Club in Iowa on Friday as the USA take on Europe in a Ryder Cup style format, with Europe tipped to defy the odds...

  • Europe have won 2 of the past 3 editions of the Solheim Cup
  • Charley Hull's win-loss-halved record in the Solheim Cup reads: 6-2-0
  • Europe won the Solheim Cup when it was last held in America in 2013

Tips Europe To Cover +2.5 Points    Best Bet @ 5 / 6  
Charley Hull Top European Player @ 6 / 1  

Recent History

The USA produced a remarkable comeback to win the 2015 Solheim Cup in Germany two years ago as they won 8.5 of the final 12 points on offer during the Sunday singles to win 14.5-13.5, with Suzan Pettersen the source of much controversy following a putting incident involving Alison Lee.

The European team can expect to be barracked by supporters this week as they gear up for the foursomes and fourballs on Friday and Saturday prior to the singles on Sunday, although we are backing the visitors to rise to the occasion.

European captain Annika Sorenstam has got a nice blend of youth and experience in her team, with Europe 5/2 to win compared to USA's price of 4/7 (Sky Bet).

We are backing Europe to cover +2.5 points in the handicap (5/6 with Paddy Power) which is something they have done in each of the past three Solheim Cups, including when they won in Colorado in 2013.
Winner Betting:

The First Day

The USA's preparations for this event have been far from ideal as Jessica Korda withdrew through injury and Lexi Thompson is a major doubt due to a virus, with Angela Stanford on standby.

The potential absence of star player Thompson is a major concern and Europe can take advantage by making a fast start on Friday.

Europe have led after the first day's play in each of the three previous editions of the Solheim Cup and they are 15/8 to win the first day (Bet 365). Furthermore, Europe have been 5-3 up in each of the last two tournaments and Bet 365 go 8/1 about the European team leading by that scoreline after Day One.

Top European

Europe boast the exciting talents of rookie Georgia Hall, who finished tied 3rd at the Open Championship recently, but we'll be backing Charley Hull in the top European bracket (6/1 with Sky Bet).

The 21-year-old, who is Britain's highest ranked player, has a fine Solheim Cup record as she was part of the team that won in Colorado four years ago and she boasts a 6-2-0 record in the event.
