Welcome to the free sports betting tips for Monday, August 22nd, 2016.

I hope you all followed Graeme’s tips for Summerslam, as he killed it. While not a perfect night, he hoovered up all the value and then some. If you missed out this time, make sure you check back before the net WWE PPV, as he’s been on a great run.

Elsewhere, the Olympics finished yesterday, and as I am part of Team GB, I’m smug right now, considering how well our tiny island did. Get that right up you, China. Plus, none of our swimmers made up a great lie that came undone more and more each day. So, really, Team GB are the big winners. Unless you count Usain Bolt, who won the treble-treble, even better than Mo Farah’s double-double. Of course, if they had a 4×10,000m relay, you would think Mo-Bot would have another medal or two around his neck.

Now, it’s all MLB tonight, seeing as it’s so late, so I’ll get to it.

Now, let’s get onto the free sports betting tips for August 22nd, 2016.

MLB Betting Tips

Yankees to beat Mariners. Why? Well, Seattle are likely to have bullpen issues tonight, as they went through five relief pitchers last night, after blowing such a decent lead. Plus, Michael Pineda isn’t going too bad at the moment, and the Yankees are playing well, albeit in patches.

Indians -1.5 to beat A’s. Oh, man, this just doesn’t bode well for Oakland. Cleveland are coming in here confident, and Carlos Carrasco is playing some great ball from the mound. It’s just what they need after a tough series against the Blue Jays. Add in Jose Ramirez and his hot bat, and things just look grim for Oakland and rookie starter Andrew Triggs. Carrasco should keep the A’s low-scoring, and as long as their line-up keeps firing on all cylinders, this should be a route for the superior side.

Over 9.5 runs Arizona @ Atlanta. Both sides are horrible, both pitchers are struggling, and it should be a real slog to decide a winner. I can see a lot of runs purely down to the poor pitching match-up we’re going to see her tonight.
