Bubba Watson favourite for 12th USA Ryder Cup spot

Bubba Watson Latest Ryder Cup Betting – The 2016 Ryder Cup is just over a week away now, and the USA are still to name the 12th and final member of their team.

Favourite in the betting is Bubba Watson, who looks set to be the final pick when American captain, David Love III, completes his team with his fourth wild card pick on 25th September.

It does sound remarkable that the USA will be leaving it until just 5 days before the competition starts to complete their line up, but that is the way they have decided to go.

The other eleven USA players will have had plenty of time to finalise their preparations, and get their heads right for the competition, as will all of Europe’s twelve strong team.

So far Davis Love has named three wildcards, Rickie Fowler, JB Holmes and Matt Kuchar, to add to the eight already qualified players in his team – they are Dustin Johnson, Phil Mickelson, Jordan Spieth, Jimmy Walker, Brooks Koepka, Brandt Snedeker, Zach Johnson and Patrick Reed.

Bubba Watson Favourite For 12th Ryder Cup Spot

Favourite for the 12th spot in the USA team is Bubba Watson. He is currently 4/7 with Betvictor to get the final spot, ahead of the likes of Justin Thomas, Jim Furyk, Ryan Moore, Jason Dufner and what would be absolutely amazing, Tiger Woods – how remarkable would that be?

Woods is a distant outsider, and it would be an amazing risk to bring him in to the side given his recent injury problems. He is also one of the USA vice captains. A role he wouldn’t have been offered if he had any outside chance of making the team.

So why wait so long to name the 12th player? One theory is that Davis Love III wants to pick Bubba Watson for golfing reasons, but for non golfing reasons he is not sure.

Ryder Cup potential pick Watson, widely regarded to not being too popular

Watson has a reputation of not being the easiest bloke in the world to get on with, and it sounds like the only thing preventing his inclusion, is the possibility of it unsettling the team.

The Americans haven’t been this strong for years now, and they don’t want anything to blow this chance, least of all, a disruptive influence in the team.

As well as the likes of Jordan Spieth and Rickie Fowler, the USA boast the form player in the world over the last few weeks in Dustin Johnson, who this season won his first major.

Free Bets

At Betfree247 we will bring you the best free bets and casino offers from the top UK and Irish bookmakers, and casino websites.

Free Bets are everywhere these days, for both new and existing customers. And with the competition between the online bookmakers so rife, there will be free bets around for some time.

Why is this? You may ask…. And the answer is because everything is online these days, banking, shopping, dating, etc, and betting is as well.

So with this in mind, the bookmakers are going to be after our custom. And the best way to grab our attention, is by giving us free bets.

These free bets are available to new customers, and existing customers. The new customer free bet offer is to get us to join the bookmaker. With the existing customer free bets designed to keep us with the bookmaker.

With the online betting market place so crowded, the bookmakers are fighting over our custom. While they are doing this, we will continue to have free bets.

Two of the most popular free bets markets for existing customers, are on the Cheltenham Festival, and the Grand National.

Cheltenham Free Bets

The Cheltenham Festival takes place every year on roughly the second week in March. Starting on the Tuesday, there is 28 top class horse races across 4 days at the Gloucester course.

And with the Cheltenham Festival being one of horse racing’s premier events, there are plenty of free bets.

Cheltenham Free Bets

In general Cheltenham free bets are for existing customers, and they usually come in the form of a refund as a free bet.

There are also plenty of special Cheltenham free bets for new customers. For example a bookmaker might increase their free bets offers across the Cheltenham week.

It could be that you get £30.00 in Cheltenham free bets, rather than the standard £20.00 in free bets offer.

Grand National Free Bets

The next big event in horse racing is the world renowned Grand National from Aintree. And there is a bit of mystery about Grand National Free Bets – as they can be hard come by.

The bookmakers have a habit of pulling Grand National Free Bets in the week of the big race.

This is because the Grand National is traditionally the one race of the year that the non gambling British public will have a bet on.

So it makes sense for the bookmakers not to offer Grand National free bets.

It is possible to get Grand National Free Bets though, and timing is the key.

Some free bets last up to 7 days from when you open your account. Find a bookmaker offering a free bet that lasts for 7 days.

Then open an account with that bookie the Sunday or Monday before the Grand National.

That way, by the time of the race you will already have a free bet in the bank.

Casino Offers

They can be massive amounts at times. New customer casino offers can vary from 30 free spins with no deposit, right up to a deposit bonus worth £500.00.

These offers vary, so there should be something for everyone from the casual player, all the way up to the high roller.

Casino Existing Customer Offers

Casino offers for existing customers come in all forms. They can be monthly free spins for loyalty reasons, such as being a member of a VIP club.

Or these casino offers could weekly free spins available to everybody on a particular day. Or they could just be random ad hoc offers.

The VIP loyalty offers are generally the best. They can be huge offers, depending on how often you use the casino.

The casinos seem to like loyalty and put a lot of focus on this, which is why there are currently some great casino offers available to existing customers.
