Before locking in your 2022 LIV Golf Boston picks, be sure to see the 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 is up nearly 75 units in 2022 having hit Cameron Smith (+2200) at the Tournament of Champions, Hudson Swafford (+25000) at the American Express, Joaquin Niemann (+7000) at the Genesis Invitational and Justin Thomas (+6600) live at the PGA Championship.

Now, McDonald has set his sights on the 2022 LIV Golf Boston field and just revealed his top prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see McDonald's 2022 LIV Golf Boston picks, sleepers and favorites to avoid.

Top 2022 LIV Golf Boston picks

One surprise: McDonald is fading Cameron Smith, who's listed as the 11-2 favorite, in Boston this week. Smith had a stellar season on the PGA Tour last season, recording three victories and seven top-10 finishes. He was able to claim a major championship with a win at the British Open, but he dealt with injuries late in the season that caused him to miss the BMW Championship in the FedEx Cup playoffs. 

"I am surprised Smith is this short given the question marks surrounding his hip discomfort," McDonald told SportsLine. "Needing to withdraw from the BMW Championship and looking uncomfortable at the Tour Championship, I would have made Johnson the favorite this week. The Players Championship winner and Champion Golfer of the Year is a prolific champion and can win on any given week but given the variance we have seen in LIV thus far, +550 is far too steep to warrant any investment."
