Since the PGA Tour returned in June 2020, SportsLine’s proprietary model, designed by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been on fire. In fact, since the relaunch, the model has made almost $9,500 on its best picks, nailing tournament after tournament.
J.T. Poston was among McClure’s top picks to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet landed at +5500, and McClure’s greatest bets returned nearly $1,100 for the tournament. McClure’s model was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major title triumph at the 2022 Masters leading into the weekend.
Furthermore, McClure’s top bets included Collin Morikawa winning the 2021 Open Championship outright, despite being a whopping 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first major title win at the 2021 US Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, yet the model still predicted him to win.

Predictions for the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship
Denny McCarthy, one of the top favorites at 18-1, falls this week and fails to make the top five at the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship, according to the model. McCarthy is coming off a strong PGA Tour season in which he finished in the top 10 five times, including a T-7 performance at the US Open in June. The 29-year-old, on the other hand, battled down the stretch, missing the cut in three of his last six races.
Furthermore, McCarthy was 131st in greens in regulation percentage (65.33%) and strokes gained: approach the green (-.059) last season, which doesn’t speak well for his chances this week. He’s not a great favorite to win the Sanderson Farms Championship 2022, and there are significantly better values in the field.
Davis Riley, a 40-1 longshot, also makes a strong run for the crown. Riley has a considerably higher chance of winning it all than his chances suggest, making him a tempting target for anyone seeking for a big payday.
To score well at the Country Club of Jackson, players must consistently drain putts, which Riley excels at. Last season, the 25-year-old finished 10th in putting average (1.727) and 29th in overall putting average (1.586). In addition, he was 16th in birdie average (4.15), and fourth in total birdies (390). Riley is a good value selection for your 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship bets this week thanks to his impressive stats and lengthy odds. See who else you can choose from here.

Odds for the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship field
Sam Burns (11-0): The defending champion is clearly the best in the field. Despite this, the four-time PGA Tour winner’s recent results have been disappointing. Burns finished the Presidents Cup with a 0-3-2 record, one of only a few Americans to fail to win at Quail Hollow. Prior to his time in Charlotte, the LSU product struggled through the 2021-22 FedEx Cup Playoffs and has not finished in the top ten since June. If he’s on, he’ll run away from this field, but considering the state of his game, it may be a tall order.
Theegala, Sahith (18-1): The decisive triumph appears to be on the horizon, and Jackson could be an ideal landing point for Theegala. Following a T6 finish at the Fortinet Championship, the 24-year-old returns to the scene of his first PGA Tour close call. His rookie season experience should serve him well in his third Sanderson Farms Championship outing, as he led through three rounds last year.
Henley, Russell (22-1)
Taylor Montgomery (1-0): The excitement has been matched by one event, as Montgomery has been identified as a possible Rookie of the Year candidate by many. After finishing third at the Fortinet Championship, the 27-year-old will try to build on his performance in the season-opening this week in Jackson. Montgomery is a great statistical fit for the Country Club of Jackson; he is plenty far off the tee and is coming off a tournament where he gained over 11 strokes putting.
Stallings, Scott (25-1)
Poston, J.T. (25-1)
Denny McCarthy (1-0): McCarthy has been treated well at the Country Club of Jackson throughout his career, and he should be treated well again this week. His previous four performances in Mississippi were as follows: T17, T6, T18, and T7. McCarthy, a master of the putter, should have a realistic chance to win his first PGA Tour title if he duplicates his ball striking from last season.
Riley, Davis (33-1): For the fourth time, the Mississippi lad returns to his native state in search of some form. Riley is coming off a dismal performance in Napa, where he missed the cut and lost over six strokes on the greens in only two rounds. After struggling with consistency in his debut season, a win appears to be in his future, but not this week.
Grillo, Emiliano (33-1)
Bradley, Keegan (35-1)
Mullinax, Trey (35-1)
