St. Louis Blues DFS Spin

Robert Thomas (upper body) won't be available to play on Tuesday against Washington. Thomas was absent from Monday's practice due to an upper-body injury and he won't go on the trip. He just returned to the lineup on Saturday from an illness and now he is back on the sidelines. Thomas has accounted for 48 points in 52 games this season. Vladimir Tarasenko (illness) won't be in the lineup either on Tuesday.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Alex Ovechkin scored a goal in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Dallas Stars. Ovechkin beat Jake Oettinger for a goal a few minutes into the second period. That drew the Capitals to within 2-1 on the scoreboard, but Washington just couldn't close that one-goal gap before the end of the game. Overall this season, Ovechkin has posted a sharp 40 goals and 76 points across 62 games played. The star vet has now put in goals in each of his last four games.

Blues vs. Capitals Betting Prediction

The underdog has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams, while the Blues have won four of their last five games after allowing five goals or more in their previous game. St. Louis is also 8-2 in its last 10 games playing on two days of rest, is 9-4 in its last 13 games versus a team with a winning record and is 35-16 in its last 51 games on Tuesday. The Capitals, meanwhile, are just 3-7 in their last 10 home games, are 2-5 in their last seven games as a home favorite and are 1-4 in their last five games when playing the fourth game of a 4-in-6 situation.
