2013 Solheim Cup captains Liselotte Neumann of Europe and Meg Mallon of the USA
The USA lost the Solheim Cup at Killeen Castle in Ireland two years ago but are hot favourites to win it back in 2013.
Since the tournament was first played at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club in 1990, the Americans have never lost on home soil.
They won that match 11½-4½ and have since triumphed 13-7 at the Greenbrier in West Virginia (1994), 16-12 at Muirfield Village in Ohio (1998), 15½-12½ at Interlachen Country Club in Minnesota (2002), 15½-12½ at Crooked Stick in Indiana (2005) and 16-12 at Rich Harvest Farms in Illinois (2009).
Europe have won four of the six matches held in Europe.
Sky Bet make Meg Mallon's USA 4/11 to regain the Solheim Cup while Liselotte Neumann's Europeans are 11/4 to retain the trophy. A first ever tie in the Solheim Cup is priced at 11/1.
Sky Bet Golf Product manager John Rhodes said: "USA look strong contenders on home soil, and The European side have never won in America, so everything points to a home banker.
"With many of the European mainstays out of form, captain Lotte Neumann has had to go for youth over experience by picking Charley Hull instead of the vastly experienced Laura Davies and Sophie Gustafson so our girls face a huge challenge."
Suzann Pettersen is the 7/2 favourite to be top European points scorer while newly-crowned British Women's Open champ Stacy Lewis is 9/2 joint favourite with Paula Creamer to bank most points for the hosts.
