The 42nd Ryder Cup gets underway this Friday with the best golfers from Europe and America doing battle for the trophy. For the 2018 edition, we head across to France for the very first time at Le Golf National course just outside of Versailles.
In a tight result market, Team Europe are the marginal outsiders but they are getting plenty of support from the golf betting fraternity. It’s a strong squad assembled by Captain Thomas Bjorn and with the backing of a partisan home crowd, they have the capacity to get over the line.
For those who have yet to sign up with SportNation and are looking to back the Europeans, the bookmaker has this new customer offer which promises free bets in multiples of £25.00 if that bet lands.

How It Works
The basic concept of the offer means that for those who open an account and stake £25.00 on an outright win for Europe in the 2018 Ryder Cup, a free bet worth £25.00 will be issued for every point that they win by.
There are 28 points up for grabs so in theory, Europe could win 28-0: Realistically that isn’t going to happen and the final result should be a close one but this deal certainly has the potential for multiple £25.00 freebies and some real value. If you want to take it further, here’s what needs to happen.
Because this offer is exclusively for new customers to SportNation, the first thing to do is register for an account. You can head across from this link and complete what should be a very simple process that will take up no more than a few minutes of your time.
Once validated and confirmed, you should be taken to the SportNation cashier where there are some important points to remember. Firstly, the minimum deposit required is £25.00 and the only available funding methods here are by debit or credit card. Finally, when making the deposit, please enter the Promo Code SNRYDER when prompted to do so.
Take care of those important details are you are ready to move on to the next stage.
Place Your Bets
Your money should be free to use straight away and you can then stake the fixed sum of £25.00 on Europe to win the 2018 Ryder Cup. The action takes place at Le Golf National from September 28 to September 30 and if Thomas Bjorn’s European side win by at least one full point, payment is made as follows.
Your bet on Europe to win the Ryder Cup will be paid out in cash based on the odds for this outcome in the standard markets. These can fluctuate but currently stand at around the 11/8 mark.
This payment will arrive once the tournament concludes and any free bets will then hit your account within a further 24 hours. For each clear point that Europe win by, a £25.00 free bet token will appear so if the scoreline is 14.5 – 13.5, it’s 1x £25 free bet while for 15 – 13 it’s 2x £25 and so on.
Those free bets come with a shelf life of 7 days so remember to use them up within that time or they will expire and they must be used on outcomes at odds of 1.80 or longer. That completes the significant terms but as there are a number of things to remember, you are free to check all terms and conditions on the SportNation offers page if you prefer.
Over to You
The United States have travelled to France with a strong team but Europe always play well as a unit at Ryder Cups and they will have that home support that could prove crucial.
US sides haven’t won in Europe since 1993 but they are narrow favourites this year so this clearly isn’t a guaranteed offer but it could prove to be a very lucrative one if Thomas Bjorn’s team reclaim the trophy.
