Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are still in the AL wildcard hunt, currently sitting three games back in the AL wildcard and two games under .500. The Rays don’t look like they have what it takes to make the wildcard. The team is too inconsistent, and the pitching staff has been suspect throughout the season.
Chris Archer (9-7, 3.76 ERA) has not looked like the dominant Archer of years passed. He is 5-3 with a 4.62 ERA in 13 road starts this season. Archer has been better in his last five starts. He is 2-1 with a 3.56 ERA in those outings.
St. Louis Cardinals
St. Louis has not played well lately. They are 4-6 over their last 10 games and 4.5 games behind the Cubs for the NL Central lead. St. Louis is still in the wildcard hunt and currently sits five games back of the Colorado Rockies for the final NL wildcard spot.
Lance Lynn (10-6, 3.17 ERA) will face the Tampa Bay Rays for the first time this season and has been good at home this year. He is 5-3 with a 2.90 ERA in 12 starts against at home this year. Opposing lineups are averaging .212 against him at home in 2017.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. St. Louis Cardinals MLB Prediction:
The Cardinals need this game. Lance Lynn has been solid, and has experienced the pressure of a playoff race. Archer has as well, but been hard to trust this season. Take the Cardinals at home in this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
I would expect Archer to play well this afternoon, but he has been up and down all year. Lynn has been more consistent, especially at home. Take the under in this matchup.
