The 2021 RSM Classic will provide golf fans with some star-studded groupings through the first two days of action. Louis Oosthuizen, the highest-ranked player in the 2021 RSM Classic field, will play alongside Scottie Scheffler and Max Homa when play gets underway on Thursday, Nov. 18, from Sea Island Resort. Meanwhile, Justin Rose, the 2018 FedEx Cup champion, will be paired with Webb Simpson and Jason Day. 

Elsewhere in the 2021 RSM Classic field, Robert Streb, the defending champion, will play alongside Harris English and Kevin Kisner. The latest 2021 RSM Classic odds from Caesars Sportsbook lists Scheffler, who secured a runner-up finish last week at the Houston Open, as the 11-1 favorite. With such a strong field, be sure to check out the predictions and projected leaderboard from SportsLine's advanced computer model before locking in your 2021 RSM Classic picks

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, it's up almost $10,000 on its best bets since that point, nailing tournament after tournament.

Earlier this month at the 2021 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba, the model was all over Viktor Hovland (18-1) winning his third PGA Tour title. 

At the 2021 Open Championship, McClure's best bets included Collin Morikawa winning outright even though he was listed as a massive 40-1 long shot. He was also all over Daniel Berger (+220) and Emiliano Grillo (+700) finishing inside the top-20. McClure's best bets netted over $2,200 at the 2021 Open Championship.

In addition, McClure's model was 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. And at the 2021 Masters, McClure nailed Rahm's (+250) top-five finish in his best bets, as well as Corey Conners' (+550) top-10 showing.  

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

Now that the 2021 RSM Classic field is locked, SportsLine simulated the event 10,000 times, and the results were surprising. Head to SportsLine now to see the projected 2021 RSM Classic leaderboard.

The model's top 2021 RSM Classic predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2021 RSM Classic: Webb Simpson, a seven-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites, stumbles this week and doesn't event crack the top five. The 36-year-old has struggled early this season, finishing T-30 or worse in two of his three starts, which includes a missed cut at the Shriners Children's Open. 

Simpson also struggled at the RSM Classic last year, finishing T-37 with a score of 9-under par. Plus, Simpson has been extremely inconsistent with his approach shots this season, entering this week's event ranked 157th in strokes gained: approach the green (-.308). He also ranks 156th in strokes gained: off-the-tee (-.191) and 103rd in scoring average (71.001), which doesn't bode well for his chances to finish on top of the leaderboard this week. He's not a strong pick to win it all and there are far better values in the RSM Classic 2021 field.

Another surprise: Corey Conners, a 25-1 long shot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win it all than his odds imply, so he's one of the 2021 RSM Classic picks you should be all over. 

In order to score well at the Sea Island Resort, players will need to pick up strokes on the greens and few do it better than Conners. In fact, the 29-year-old enters this week's event ranked inside the top-10 in total putting (106.7) and putting average (1.630). He also ranks eighth in greens in regulation percentage (75.00) and 11th in driving accuracy percentage (69.64). SportsLine's model projects Conners' recent form will allow him to be in the mix at the 2021 RSM Classic, making him one of the top value picks that should be all over your radar this week. 

How to make 2021 RSM Classic picks

The model is also targeting five other golfers with odds longer than 25-1 who will make surprising runs, including a long shot who's going off higher than 45-1. Anyone who backs these long shots could hit it big. You can only see them here.
