Bills vs. Rams Best Bets
At BetMGM, you’ll find a vast selection of betting options for this game, but here are a couple we like for opening night.
The Bills and Rams will meet for the first time since 2020, and both squads will be looking to make a statement and set the tone for the season. Buffalo prevailed in their last matchup 35-32, and it feels like this one could be a high-scoring affair as well.
The Bills have won and covered the spread three of the last four times against the Rams and were 9-7-1 ATS last year. Josh Allen is coming off a historic season and had his Bills scoring at a lofty 28.4 points per game clip. That shouldn’t change in this game.
The Rams won the Super Bowl last year but were just 8-9 ATS during the regular season. This one should have a lot of points, but when the dust settles, the Bills win by a field goal.
Bills Win by Between 1-6 points (+310)
Both of these teams are too good for this game to be a blowout, so if you’re feeling the Bills, why not take them to win by 1-6 for some juicy odds?
Two out of the last four games between the Rams and Bills have been decided by three points, and the current versions of these squads are probably the most evenly matched they’ve ever been.
If you think the Rams will squeak this one out, the odds are even better at +325. Or you could hedge and take both and root for a close game without worrying about who wins.
