The 43rd Ryder Cup is here, and the action is starting to fly as bettors get ready for three days of drama from Kohler, Wisconsin. As the action continues to come in, here are the latest odds and bet splits for the 2021 Ryder Cup Matches at Whistling Straits from DraftKings Sportsbook:

To lift the Ryder Cup*

USA -215 (59% of action, 32% of bets)
Europe -170 (41% of action, 68% of bets)

*If the matches end tied at 14-14, Europe wins and retains the Cup because of their win in 2018 and thus wins this bet.
