Columbus Blue Jackets DFS SPIN

Daniil Tarasov on Friday surrendered three first-period goals during a 5-2 loss to the Lightning. Tarasov, in net again with Elvis Merzlinkins recovering from an illness, failed to protect two first-period leads as the Lightning scored the final three goals to seal the win. The 23-year-old netminder, who faced 14 first-period shots, still seeks his first career win after five starts. Until Merzlinkins is fit enough to return, it appears the Blue Jackets will stick with Tarasov.

St. Louis Blues DFS SPIN

St. Louis recalled Jake Neighbours from the minors Tuesday and named him to the team's Opening Night roster. Neighbours was sent to the AHL on Monday in a paper move to help the Blues' salary cap situation. He played in nine games with St. Louis at the start of the 2021-22 season before returning to the junior hockey ranks. Neighbours stands a good chance of sticking around longer this year based on his enhanced experience, but being exempt from waivers makes him a candidate to be sent back down as well.

Blue Jackets vs. Blues MLB Betting Trends

Blue Jackets are 5-21 in the last 26 meetings in St. Louis

Underdog is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings

Home team is 35-17 in the last 52 meetings

Over is 4-1-1 in the last 6 meetings


The Blues are well rested after not suiting up for a game yet this season, whereas the Blue Jackets will be playing their third contest of the year and their second in back-to-back nights. Assuming Jordan Binnington plays well, the Blues will have more than enough scoring to cash for bettors on the puckline.
