USA favs to win in Europe for first time in 30 years
Underdogs won six times in 10 RCs since 2002
USA are the 10/111.91 favourites to win Ryder Cup, which starts on Friday in Rome, but history makes better reading for the hosts.
The Americans won the last Ryder Cup by 10 points, which suggested that they could dominate the tournament for years, but they haven't won on European soil since 1993.
Since 1979, Europe have won 11 and lost nine editions of the tournament.
What are the odds on Europe winning the Ryder Cup?
That indicates they could struggle at Marco Simone in Rome this week and a victory for Europe may be value at 6/52.20.
Luke Donald's team may not mind going in as outsiders. After all, five of Europe's seven victories in the last 10 events have been when they started as outsiders.
Could the USA be feeling the pressure, as captain Zach Johnson bids to lead them to victory in the 44th edition of the Ryder Cup?
They have previously lost five times when favourites which suggests they do not relish high expectations.
Outsiders do well generally in this contest, with six of the 10 tournaments since 2002 being won be outsiders.
