Wyndham Championship 2022 picks, predictions, best bets, odds: Golf expert says back Tyrrell Hatton this week

The final event of the PGA Tour season is upon us, and every golfer will be trying to add to his FedEx Cup points total this week at the 2022 Wyndham Championship. The top 125 golfers after this week’s tournament at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, NC advance to next week’s St. Jude Championship. Webb Simpson and Rickie Fowler were among those who cracked the playoff tier when the suspended golfers from LIV were removed from the list, with Simpson moving to 117th and Fowler to 123rd. Cameron Champ (130th) wasn’t so lucky, and Austin Smotherman is the man straddling the bubble at 125th. Will Zalatoris, Shane Lowry and Billy Horschel are among the headliners of this week’s field and will be looking to pad their point totals for what they hope will be a run to the Tour Championship in three weeks.

Zalatoris (16-1), Lowry (16-1) and Sungjae Im (16-1) are the co-favorites in the latest 2022 Wyndham Championship odds from Caesars Sportsbook. Simpson (18-1) and Horschel (20-1) are right behind, followed by Russell Henley (22-1) and 2016 Wyndham champ Si Woo Kim (28-1). Kevin Kisner, who won in a six-man playoff last year that also included Kim, is priced at 55-1. Champ (65-1), Fowler (125-1) and Smotherman (150-1) are also longshots in the Wyndham Championship 2022 field. Before making any 2022 Wyndham Championship picks, you need to see the PGA predictions and best bets from SportsLine 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 more than 52 units on those plays in 2022, 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.

McDonald just missed on his long-shot play at last week’s Rocket Mortgage Classic, with 80-1 shot Taylor Pendrith battling for the lead all week until winner Tony Finau’s dominant Sunday. The expert also pegged Pendrith as the first-round leader at 70-1, and the Canadian shared that honor with Finau after both shot 64 on Thursday. Pendrith ended up tied for second alongside reigning FedEx Cup champion Patrick Cantlay.

At the 3M Open the previous week, McDonald nailed both of his prop plays, taking Cam Davis as the top Australian finisher (+140) and Sahith Theegala to miss the cut (+275). The expert is up more than eight units on his PGA Tour props.

Now, McDonald has studied the 2022 Wyndham 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 Wyndham Championship picks and predictions.

Top 2022 Wyndham Championship expert picks

One stunning prediction from McDonald: Simpson’s success at Sedgefield won’t continue this year. The expert is fading the 2011 Wyndham winner, who has finished in the top 10 in nine of 13 appearances. He tied for seventh (behind the six playoff participants) last year and was in the top three the previous four years. But the 36-year-old was T-69 last week and has one top-10 finish since last year’s Wyndham. That was in November, so he is unlikely to contend this week.

On the other hand, Tyrrell Hatton has not been in contention much but is one of the best players in the field and the expert is backing him this week. The last time we saw Hatton, he tied for 11th at the Open Championship at St. Andrews, and that was with an uncharacteristically unreliable putter. The Englishman is fifth on tour in strokes gained putting, so that should come back. He hit almost 81 percent of his greens in regulation at The Open, his best performance of the year.

How to make 2022 Wyndham Championship golf picks

McDonald’s best bets for the 2022 Wyndham Championship include a massive triple-digit long shot. This golfer has had some injury issues but has a high ceiling and is still showing a great short game. He could pull off a stunning result this week. Find out who it is, and see the rest of McDonald’s picks, over at SportsLine.
