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 Portland field (see tickets at StubHub) and just revealed his top prop bets. You can head to SportsLine now to see McDonald's 2022 LIV Golf Portland best bets, sleepers and favorites to avoid.

2022 LIV Golf Portland picks

One surprise: McDonald is fading Sergio Garcia, who is one of the favorites to win this weekend. The Spaniard, who is the captain of the Fireballs, will be joined by Abraham Ancer, Carlos Ortiz and Eugenio Chacarra on his team this weekend. As for the individual aspect of the tournament, Garica is a golfer to fade in Portland.

The 42-year-old has fallen outside the top 60 in the world rankings after carding just one top-10 finish on the PGA Tour this season. He missed the cut in three of his last four events, including the PGA Championship and U.S. Open. Garcia remains one of the top drivers in golf, but his short game is no longer allowing him to contend for tournament titles.
