Captains Fred Couples and Nick Price rounded out their 12-man teams for the 2013 Presidents Cup, and LVH SuperBook assistant manager Jeff Sherman followed by posting odds on the event, scheduled for October 3-6 at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.
Couples named 20-year-old Jordan Spieth and Webb Simpson to his roster, and Spieth becomes the youngest American to play in the Presidents Cup since it began in 1994.
