The PGA Tour tees it up this week at the 2022 RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island, Georgia. Tony Finau was originally slated as the odds-on favorite to win but he's decided to withdraw from the field. That leaves Georgia homeboy Brian Harman as the favorite to win with Tom Hoge, Seamus Power, and Jason Day coming close behind.
Here are 3 matchup best bets that we think have plenty of value for this tournament. Let's go 2-1 or better with these to keep building up the bankroll. All of these lines were found at DraftKings at the time of publishing. Good luck this week!

NeSmith has made the cut in 4 consecutive starts after missing the cut at the Fortinet Championship. While he finished a weak 53rd last week, he had two 9th-place finishes along with a runner-up finish at the Shriners.
Here at the RSM, his worst finish was last year when he wrapped up his round in the 29th. He had a 15th and 14th finish previous to last year.
Denny McCarthy has been up and down at the RSM. He finished 10th last year after missing the cut in 2021.
In 2020, he finished 8th after finishing 46th and missing the cut previous to that. Outside of a 6th place finish at the Bermuda Championship, McCarthy has been mediocre at best this season.
This will be Troy Merritt’s 6th consecutive start here at the RSM. In his previous 5, he made the cut in all but one start (2021).
Last year he finished 22nd which was his best finish in that 5-year span. He is coming off a spectacular start at the WW Tech Championship where he tied for 3rd.
Hayden Buckley got his 1st start at the RSM last year and he failed to make the cut. In his last start, at the WW Tech Championship, he finished 59th which was a far cry from Merritt’s 3rd-place finish.
Despite having to withdraw in 2018, Webb Simpson has had a stellar record here at the RSM. His 37th finish in 2021 was his worst finish. He has 3 top 10 finishes among those previous 5 starts.
Now, he has not been off to the greatest of starts this year. He missed the cut at the Fortinet and a 52nd at the CJ Cup. This will be his 1st start since the CJ Cup.
Jaeger finished 29th in 2018 at the RSM but has failed to make the cut in the last 2 years. He is coming off a great 9th-place finish at the Houston Open after missing the cut the week previous. We believe Webb’s history here will prove to be the difference.
