Presidents Cup Cheat Sheet and Matching Calculator
With very little actionable information before pairings were announced, we only made two bets on the prop market. The rest of the money will come in the form of match bets throughout the week.
Team USA is absolutely stacked and finding any sort of value in the matchup market is going to be tough with most USA teams being the absolute favorites. However, as the week progresses, we may be able to catch sleeping pounds. As this is a fun event and always nice to get a sweat on, if there is no value for a session of golf, feel free to bet a 10th of a unit on a match which has the value closest to 0, just to get some skin in the #Degenerate game.
I have shared my gamer cheat sheet and matchup calculator in an excel document here: Cheat Sheet & Matchup Calculator
How to use the match calculator
In the hyperlink above you can access the correspondence calculator. It should be set to eliminate any match that shows value based on the respective odds and power ratings of the players involved. All you have to do is update the player column with the respective names for each match, then throw their odds into the “Vegas Odds” column and if there’s value in the bet, it should kick out the amount you need to bet to win $20.
*Please note that the -125 for Xander and Cantlay is fudged so we can have an example of what a positive value match would look like. Unfortunately, there are no value matches in the first session.
** This is the value calculation for matches that are a push in the event of a tie.
The United States will win the singles on the fourth day (-225)
As you can see in the screenshot below, regardless of Sunday’s match combinations, USA are expected to win 118 out of 144 match combinations. That’s 82% of matches that should reflect odds of -450, which gives us 200 value points on the USA singles winners.
There are concerns that they could get a little complacent on Sunday if their lead is big, but at the end of the day these professionals are playing for their own personal best match play which they have limited opportunities to add with the Ryder Cup and the Presidents Cup. events only every two years and WGC Match Play the only match play event on the schedule.

Patrick Cantlay: best points scorer (+750)
With Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele paired for the first foursome session, they will be looking to continue their dominance in this format as teammates. Cantlay is favored in every game he might face on Sunday and with Xander as his partner in the tag team sessions, their chances of earning 4 points together are strong.
Xander Schauele: top scorer (+700)
