2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship odds, field: Surprising PGA playoff picks from model that’s called 8 majors


The first event of the 2022 FedEx Cup Playoffs is set to get underway on Thursday, Aug. 11, and a number of players will enter TPC Southwind confident they can secure the victory. Scottie Scheffler, the No. 1 ranked player in the world, has four victories and nine top-10 finishes this season. He’s also ranked No. 1 in the FedEx Cup standings, but he’s finished T-21 or worse in each of his last two starts on the PGA Tour, which includes a missed cut at the Genesis Scottish Open.

Meanwhile, Patrick Cantlay, the reigning FedEx Cup champion, can add to his impressive resume with a victory at the FedEx St. Jude Championship 2022. Cantlay has been playing extremely well in recent weeks, finishing T-8 or better in three consecutive starts. Both Cantlay and Scheffler are among the top contenders according to the latest 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Rory Mcilory is the 11-1 favorite, with Scheffler (14-1), Cantlay (16-1), Jon Rahm (16-1), Cameron Smith (16-1) and Justin Thomas (16-1) next in line. Before locking in your 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship picks, be sure to see the PGA Tour predictions and betting advice from SportsLine’s proven golf model.

SportsLine’s proprietary model, built by DFS pro Mike McClure, has been red-hot since the PGA Tour resumed in June of 2020. In fact, the model is up over $9,500 on its best bets since the restart, nailing tournament after tournament.

McClure’s model included J.T. Poston in its best bets to win the 2022 John Deere Classic. That bet hit at +5500, and for the entire tournament, McClure’s best bets returned almost $1,100. At the 2022 Masters, McClure’s model was all over Scottie Scheffler’s first career major championship victory heading into the weekend.

In addition, McClure’s best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright at the 2021 Open Championship, even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. The model was also all over Jon Rahm’s (10-1) first career major championship victory at the 2021 U.S. Open. Rahm was two strokes off the lead heading into the weekend, but the model still projected him as the winner.

This same model has also nailed a whopping eight majors entering the weekend. Anyone who has followed it has seen massive returns.

Now that the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship field is locked, SportsLine simulated the tournament 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected leaderboard.

Top 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship: Smith, a three-time winner on tour this season and one of the top favorites, stumbles this week and doesn’t even crack the top 10. Smith is coming off an impressive win at the British Open, his first major championship victory.

However, Smith could be dealing with rust after not playing a PGA Tour event since his victory at St. Andrews. He’s been extremely inconsistent in recent weeks as well, finishing T-48 or worse in two of his last four starts and missing the cut twice in his last eight events. In addition, the 28-year-old has had trouble with his accuracy this season, ranking 141st in driving accuracy percentage (57.94), which doesn’t bode well for his chances to win this week. He’s not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the FedEx St. Jude Championship 2022 field.

Another surprise: Jordan Spieth, a 25-1 long shot, makes a surprising run at the title. The 29-year-old has been heating up heading into the FedEx Cup Playoffs, and SportsLine’s model thinks he is undervalued heading into TPC Southwind.

Spieth’s season got off to a strong start with a win at the RBC Heritage and a second-place showing at the AT&T Byron Nelson before he cooled off mid-May through June. The Texas native has since bounced back into form with back-to-back top-10 finishes at the Scottish Open and the Open Championship. Spieth is also expected to putt well at TPC Southwind after averaging 1.49 strokes gained: putting in last season’s event in Memphis. See who else to pick here.

How to make 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship picks

The model is targeting three other golfers with odds of 20-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. It has also identified a triple-digit long shot in its best bets to win outright. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see the model’s picks here.
