Expert MLB handicappers probably think that the Rays are done for after losing their fourth straight home game in the playoffs to the Rangers dating back to last season. Here’s what we will say about Tampa Bay, though. The bullpen still hasn’t fully been touched yet, as Kyle Farnsworth hasn’t found his way into a game, while Texas’ bullpen has looked incredibly shaky from top to bottom. It’s sort of funny how Tampa Bay ends up finding ways to win games. James Shields and David Price couldn’t produce victories, but the youngster, Matt Moore did get the job done in Game 1. Jeremy Hellickson might be just what the doctor ordered. The Rays have fought all season long to claw back to this point. They can overcome just about anything, and they darn well might overcome this as well. Texas Rangers @ Tampa Bay Rays Game 4 Predictions: Tampa Bay Rays -115

MLB Predictions: Philadelphia Phillies @ St. Louis Cardinals
Date: Tuesday, October 4th, 5:07 ET
Location: Busch Stadium, St. Louis, MO
MLB Playoffs Odds: Philadelphia -140, Over/Under 7 (o-120)
MLB Playoffs TV Schedule: TBS

We’ve already seen the Rays and the Yankees take 1-0 series leads and parlay them into 2-1 series deficits. Will the mighty Phils be the next team to fall to the brink of elimination after having a chokehold on a series? One thing is for sure, and that’s that Manager Charlie Manuel isn’t freaking out, knowing that he should have the edge in a best of three series as well as he did in a best of five. Cole Hamels is a solid third pitcher to throw out there, and he is going against Jamie Garcia, who really doesn’t have any postseason experience to speak of. The Redbirds just feel like a team that is cut and pasted together, and that isn’t going to cut it in our estimation when push comes to shove against Hamels and the Phils on Tuesday. Look for Philly to take control of this series once again. Philadelphia Phillies @ St. Louis Cardinals Game 3 Predictions: Philadelphia Phillies -140

MLB Predictions: New York Yankees @ Detroit Tigers
Date: Tuesday, October 4th, 8:37 ET
Location: Comerica Park, Detroit, MI
MLB Playoffs Odds: Detroit -115, Over/Under 9.5 (o-110)
MLB Playoffs TV Schedule: TBS

Be very careful what you wished for, New York… The Yankees really thought that they were going to be able to take it to the Tigers after dodging Justin Verlander in Game 1. They lost to him in Game 3, which isn’t all that much of a shock, but now, they face back to back elimination games that they have to take to save their season. And believe us, the last man that New York wanted on the mound in this situation is AJ Burnett. Manager Joe Girardi has already said that Burnett was likely going to be on a short leash, and that could mean added innings for a New York bullpen which really hasn’t been tested in this series. Mariano Rivera has only thrown three pitches, so you know that he’ll be available for a six out save if need be, especially with an off day coming on Wednesday. However, the Tigers, with Rick Porcello on the bump, should be good enough in this one to light up the night and bounce the Bronx Bombers from the playoffs once and for all. New York Yankees @ Detroit Tigers Game 4 Predictions: Detroit Tigers -115

MLB Predictions: Milwaukee Brewers @ Arizona Diamondbacks
Date: Tuesday, October 4th, 9:37 ET
Location: Chase Field, Phoenix, AZ
MLB Playoffs Odds: Milwaukee -110, Over/Under 9 (o-105)
MLB Playoffs TV Schedule: TBS

We just can’t take an entire day of favorites on Tuesday. The Diamondbacks really shouldn’t be pups in this game even if they don’t have the edge in the pitching matchup. Remember that this was a team that won over 50 games at Chase Field this year, something that not a lot of teams can say about the way they played at their home field. Sure, Arizona was blasted in Games 1 and 2 at Miller Park, but we have to remember that Yovani Gallardo and Zack Greinke are now a combined 23-2 there on the season. Justin Collmenter might only be a rookie, but he has the goods to get the job done in what should be an exciting game for the hometown crowd. Milwaukee Brewers @ Arizona Diamondbacks Game 3 Predictions: Arizona Diamondbacks +100
