Bills at Rams odds for 2022 NFL kickoff game originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington
The Los Angeles Rams will fulfill their role as defending Super Bowl champions and play host to the Buffalo Bills for the 2022 NFL season opener on Thursday night.
Rams WR Cooper Kupp, who took home Super Bowl MVP odds in February, looks to propel the Rams’ high-powered offense in what promises to be a track meet at SoFi Stadium.
With the game set to kick off at 8:20 pm ET Thursday, now’s the time to take a look at odds for the 2022 NFL kickoff game.
Who is favored between the Bills and the Rams?
The Bills possess a small, two-point edge over the Rams in Week 1, which is a bit of a surprise given Los Angeles’ status as defending champions as well as the fact they’re returning a majority of their starters from the 2021 Super Bowl-winning roster.
History gets no love here, though, as the Bills are the flavor of the summer and the unquestioned Super Bowl favorite during the 2022 NFL preseason.
Spread: Bills -2, Rams +2
Total points: Over/under 51.5
Total team: Bills 26.5, Rams 24.5
Moneyline: Bills -131, Rams +110
