Tony Finau was originally scheduled to play in the 2022 RSM Classic at Sea Island Golf Club in Saint Simons Island, Ga., but days after his four-shot win at the Houston Open, Finau has withdrawn from the field. Finau had won in three of his last seven starts and was originally the 9-1 favorite in the 2022 RSM Classic odds from Caesars Sportsbook. But now the final event on the PGA Tour schedule of 2022 will continue without the No. 12 player in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Brian Harman is the No. 26 player in the world and the Georgia native is now the highest-ranked player in the 2022 RSM Classic field and the new 18-1 favorite in this week's PGA Tour odds. Seamus Power is the next highest-ranked player (30th) in the RSM Classic 2022 coming off a win in Bermuda and a T-3 finish at Mayakoba. Power is listed at 25-1. Before locking in your 2022 RSM Classic picks, be sure to see the golf predictions and projected leaderboard from the proven computer model at SportsLine.

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 RSM Classic 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 RSM Classic predictions 

One major surprise the model is calling for at the 2022 RSM Classic: Day, a 12-time PGA Tour champion and one of the top favorites at 22-1, stumbles this week and barely cracks the top 10. Day is a former World No. 1 but hasn't had a victory since the 2018 season, with him dropping to No. 175 in the world just one month ago. But he's striking as well as he has in years and has finished in the top 25 in each of his four events this season. While the model sees that streak continuing, it's not as bullish in Day winning the tournament, in part, because of his lack of success on this course.

Day missed the cut at last year's tournament and has finished 50th or worse in two of his three tries on this course. While his resurgence has been inspired by a great long game, the Australian has really struggled in the short game. Day ranks outside the top 100 in strokes gained: around-the-green (.031) and outside the top 90 in strokes gained: putting (.101). Low scores will be needed to win here but Day's inconsistency around and on the green is a huge red flag.

Another surprise: Keith Mitchell, a 30-1 longshot, makes a strong run at the title. He has a much better chance to win than his long odds imply, so he's a target for anyone looking for a huge payday. Another Sea Island native and former Georgia Bulldog, Mitchell is currently the No. 58 player in the OWGR and he's coming off a T-9 finish at the Houston Open last week after hitting over 70% of fairways and greens in regulation.

Mitchell has made the cut in four of five career appearances at the RSM Classic and has top-15 finishes in two of the last three seasons at Sea Island Golf Club. The 2019 Honda Classic winner has now made the cut in 12 of his last 14 worldwide starts with three top-10 finishes during that span. He's currently ranked 14th on the PGA Tour in strokes gained: off-the-tee (0.823) and that should be a significant advantage at a tough driving venue this week. See who else to pick here.

The model is also targeting three other golfers with odds of 30-1 or longer who will make surprising runs. Anyone who backs these longshots could hit it big. You can only see the model's PGA picks here.
