Things To Consider Before Betting On The Bills vs. Rams

Matthew Stafford Thursday night Football betting odds 2022

Betting lines for the Buffalo Bills vs. the Los Angeles Rams have remained steady leading into tonight’s opening game of the NFL season. The point spread and over/under totals are nearly in unison across NFL sportsbooks, with the Bills favored to win by a spread of -2.5.

Slight variances are available in the NFL moneylines offered for both the Bills and Rams if gamblers are willing to shop around at the online sportsbooks that we endorse here at SBL.

Because tonight’s edition of Thursday Night Football on NBC is the first contest of the 2022-23 season, more NFL prop bets are on the boards than usual.

Here are some of our favorites for tonight’s game:

100+ Yards & A Touchdown Parlays

  • Cooper Kupp 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +190
  • Stefon Diggs 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +450
  • Allen Robinson 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +625
  • Gabriel Davis 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +700
  • Cam Akers 100+ Rushing Yards & 1+ Touchdown +1100
  • Devin Singletary 100+ Rushing Yards & 1+ Touchdown +1200
  • Tyler Higbee 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +1600
  • Dawson Knox 100+ Receiving Yards & 1+ Touchdown +1800

The above prop offers ready-made NFL parlays that require the top receivers for the Rams and Bills to eclipse 100 yards and score a touchdown.

First Team To Use A Challenge

  • Buffalo Bills -115
  • Los Angeles Rams -115

First Team Charged With A Timeout

  • Buffalo Bills -115
  • Los Angeles Rams -115

Team To Commit First Accepted Penalty

  • Buffalo Bills -120
  • Los Angeles Rams -110

The above three pro football props are basically pick ’ems as the moneylines are similar and hovering near even. Propositions of this type are normally reserved for betting on the Super Bowl and offer more in-game intrigue than standard odds.

These betting lines have the opportunity to cash in at any moment in the game and are a fun opportunity for a low-dollar hedge.

Who Will Have More Passing Yards In The Game?

  • Matthew Stafford (LA) +110
  • Josh Allen (BUF) -150

Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford enters tonight’s game with questions surrounding the health of his surgically repaired elbow, which was operated on in the offseason. Currently, Josh Allen is favored to accumulate more passing yards with a -150 moneyline.

“I feel good, I’m ready to go. No limitations… I feel great. I’m ready to go play. Can always be better. Can always try to feel like I’m 21 again. I’ll keep trying. But no, I feel really good. I feel like I can make every throw.”

Rams QB Matthew Stafford

If you buy into Stafford’s take on his injury status, the odds on his performance should be considered. His moneyline to finish ahead of Allen in passing yards is set at +110 and will deliver $1.10 in net profit per dollar wagered.

The projected leading rusher for the Rams is RB Cam Akers, with an over/under of 44.5 yards.

Cam Akers (LAR) Total Rushing Yards

  • Over 44½ Rushing Yards -115
  • Under 44½ Rushing Yards -115

Clearly, oddsmakers are not projecting that the Rams will feature the running game tonight, so Stafford is in line for several throws vs. the Bills. The only question is, how many of them connect?

Kickoff for the Bills and Rams is at 8:20 tonight on NBC and can be seen streaming on Peacock.
