The United States has dominated the Presidents Cup, and oddsmakers don't expect that trend to change this week at Royal Melbourne.
The Americans have lost only once in the 25-year history of the event, although that defeat did come at this same venue back in 1998. But Tiger Woods' squad is a heavy favorite based on world rankings and the oddsmakers at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook have positioned them similarly at the betting window.
The U.S. team is listed as a -250 favorite, meaning bettors must risk $250 for every $100 they hope to win. The Internationals are +260 underdogs, meaning their backers will win $260 for every $100 wagered.
And if you're expecting history to repeat itself in terms of a duel between Woods and Ernie Els ending in a draw like it did at the 2003 Presidents Cup, you can get 14/1 odds that the event will end exactly in a 15-15 tie.
Here's a look at odds on which individual will rack up the most points for each team, with Justin Thomas and Hideki Matsuyama the respective favorites:
