Daily Sports Betting Preview 07/22/2021 – Olympic Archery, Rangers/Tigers, Sounders/Austin FC Odds

  • Bradley Ellison is the +275 betting favorite in the Men’s Archery Olympic event.
  • The Detroit Tigers have -135 odds to beat the Texas Rangers.
  • The Seattle Sounders are +290 underdogs against Austin FC.

LAS VEGAS – The first round of Olympic Archery starts Thursday at 8 p.m. and will run throughout the night. Prior to the Olympic coverage, bettors can also find betting value across the MLB and MLS schedules.

Olympic Men’s Archery: Bradley Ellison Favored

Bradley Ellison won the bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics and will be looking to move further up on the podium as the reigning gold medalist is no longer competing in the event. Online sportsbooks peg the American as the favorite to win the event.

Men's Archery Individual Odds

  • Brady Ellison (USA) +275
  • Kim Woo Jin (KOR) +550
  • Je Deok Kim (KOR) +600
  • Jin Hyek Oh (KOR) +600
  • Mauro Nespoli (ITA) +1000
  • Khairul Anuear Mohamad (MAL) +1200

The events on Thursday are not for a medal, but for ranking. The Men’s Individual medal matches won’t be played until Saturday, July 31. Those interested in betting on the Olympics should do so sooner rather than later before the odds shift to a point that minimizes value.

MLB Betting: Tigers vs Rangers

The Texas Rangers have been the worst team in the MLB at the plate over the last two weeks. They’ve recorded a .154 BA, .235 OBP, .237 SLG, .219 wOBA, 33 wRC+ and .083 ISO all of which rank last in the league by a solid margin.

To put it in perspective, no other team has a sub-.200 BA, sub-.300 SLG, sub-.250 wOBA or sub-70 wRC+ and Texas clears those marks with ease.

Rangers vs Tigers Moneyline Odds

  • Texas Rangers +115
  • Detroit Tigers -135

Plus, the Rangers will send Mike Foltynewicz to the mound who has a 2-9 record with a 5.91 ERA and 1.34 WHIP this season. Anyone betting on the MLB should find that the Rangers will struggle mightily to score runs and should be prone to allowing them at a decent rate.

MLS Odds: Seattle vs Austin FC

Austin FC and the Seattle Sounders will face off on Thursday night in a match where the odds, at face value, seem to not make sense.

The Sounders had an MLS record for the longest unbeaten streak to start a season, but finally lost their first game to Minnesota United. The team currently sits atop the Western Conference standings but is a sizable underdog to Austin FC.

Seattle vs Austin Moneyline Odds

  • Seattle Sounders +290
  • Austin FC -105
  • Draw +250

This is because the Sounders will be without much of their normal lineup as they will be missing 10 first-choice players for the contest. However, even without much of their everyday roster, Seattle may have a chance to win.

Seattle might not be as good as usual, but Austin will continue to be as bad as they have been (3-6-4 record).

This may be the last time the Sounders have +290 soccer odds all season, and while not under ideal conditions, could be worth betting anyways.
