Presidents Cup Picks, Predictions, Odds

The United States has dominated the Presidents Cup since its inauguration in 1994. The US Team is 11-1-1 in the 13 previous iterations of this international competition, and they are heavy favorites to win the Presidents Cup again by the golf betting odds. They have won this event eight straight times, but they needed to make a comeback to win this competition in 2019. The US went 6-4-2 on Singles Sunday to gut out a 16-14 victory and keep the trophy.

The 2022 Presidents Cup will be held at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, North Carolina. This is the 14th edition of the Presidents Cup, and it will take place from September 22-25, 2022, with Davis Love III captaining the US team and Trevor Immelman acting as the skipper for the International squad.

UNITED STATES TO WIN (-700)

It’s going to be tough for the International Team to beat the US Team even if Will Zalatoris won’t be able to participate in this event due to a back injury. The United States boasts a much more talented lineup led by Scottie Scheffler and Patrick Cantlay. Jordan Spieth and Collin Morikawa are both superb, and Max Homa is red hot after winning the Fortinet Championship last week.

Meanwhile, the International Team is missing what would have been its best golfer after Cameron Smith was banned after signing up with LIV Golf. Joaquin Niemann is also unavailable due to that same reason, so the top two international golfers are Hideki Matsuyama and Sungjae Im. Matsuyama and Im are solid, but the rest of the team is clearly a notch below what the US has to offer.

COLLIN MORIKAWA TOP U.S. ROOKIE (+350)

Although Collin Morikawa hasn’t been at his best the last few months, he has risen to the occasion in the past. Morikawa finished T5 at the FedEx St. Jude Championship last month, and he also secured T5 finishes at the Masters, US Open, and the Sentry Tournament of Champions. This will be his first time teeing off at Quail Hollow, yet that doesn’t necessarily put him at a disadvantage since this course saw a major rework in 2017.

TAYLOR PENDRITH TOP INTERNATIONAL ROOKIE (+700)

Canadian Taylor Pendrith barely made the cut at the Fortinet Championship last week and ended up with a T67 finish after a final round 77 on Sunday. That last round has led to Pendrith having diminished odds at the Presidents Cup, and you can now snag him to be the top performing rookie at this event at 7-1.

Pendrith has been in great form since returning from an injury two months ago. He has five T15 finishes in his last seven events, and he finished T2 at the Rocket Mortgage Classic and T8 at the BMW Championship. He has the power to perform well at Quail Hollow, and he can help pull off an upset or two.
