Sanderson Farms Championship 2022 picks, predictions, best bets, odds: Golf expert fades Sam Burns

After the expected Team USA victory in the Presidents Cup, the PGA Tour fall season picks up again with the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Miss. Sam Burns made his Presidents Cup debut as part of that winning United States team at Quail Hollow last week, and he is back to defend his title at the Country Club of Jackson. It was the first of his three PGA Tour victories last season. Six of the past nine Sanderson Farms Championship winners were first-time champions, and players like Davis Riley and Sahith Theegala hope to be in the mix for their first win after strong rookie campaigns. Riley posted six top-10 finishes and Theegala had five in 2021-22, and each was a runner-up once. Theegala led after 54 holes here last year, but finished T-8 after a final-round 71. The Sanderson Farms field also features several PGA Tour winners from last season, including Sepp Straka, Keegan Bradley and J.T. Poston.

Burns, who was able to defend his Valspar Championship title back in March, is the 11-1 favorite in the latest Sanderson Farms Championship odds. J.T. Poston (16-1), Denny McCarthy (18-1) and Theegala (20-1) also are among the favorites in the Sanderson Farms 2022 field, while Riley is a longer shot at 40-1. Before making any 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship picks, be sure you check out the PGA Tour predictions and best bets from golf insider Patrick McDonald.

After spending time at FanSided and NBC Sports EDGE, McDonald joined CBS Sports as a golf writer in the spring of 2022. Now covering the sport from a broader perspective, McDonald still likes to dip his toes into the betting pools on a weekly basis on the PGA Tour.

He takes a measured approach to his outright selections and finished the 2021-22 season up 42 units on those plays, having hit Cameron Smith (22-1) at the Tournament of Champions, Hudson Swafford (250-1) at The American Express, Joaquin Niemann (70-1) at the Genesis Invitational and Justin Thomas (66-1) live at the PGA Championship.

Now, McDonald has studied the 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship field and is locking in his best bets, top sleepers and favorites to avoid. You can head to SportsLine now to see all of his 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship picks and predictions.

Top 2022 Sanderson Farms Championship expert picks

Shockingly, McDonald is fading Burns, with the 26-year-old coming off an emotionally draining Presidents Cup run. He played five rounds in Charlotte, going 0-2-3, and while that doesn’t necessarily reflect how the 26-year-old played, “a letdown feels inevitable,” McDonald tells SportsLine. The expert points out that Sergio Garcia missed the cut last year when trying to defend his 2020 title, a week after the Ryder Cup. “Something similar could be in store for Burns,” he says.

On the other hand, the expert is looking at longer shots, and Trey Mullinax is one of several McDonald will be keeping a close eye on. The 30-year-old won the Barbasol Championship in July, and he finished in the top 25 in four of his final five tournaments of last season. His power off the tee should give him a leg up in Jackson, and he tied for fourth last year. He is familiar with playing in the South, having played at Alabama after being raised in Birmingham. See who else to pick here.
