Improve Facebook Sharing for News Articles

As a visitor, when I share content from a Sport Ngin site to Facebook, I want it to properly display the photo as well as the headline and content. Right now, it picks a random image which is usually a Sport Ngin logo rather than the image from my article. 

Reviewing the head code shows the following tags are missing which Facebook needs to properly display shares correctly:

<meta property="og:title" content=""/>
<meta property="og:type" content="article"/>
<meta property="og:url" content=""/>
<meta property="og:site_name" content=""/>
<meta property="og:image" content=""/>
