NFL Best Bets 9/8/2022

Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford in the Super Bowl 56, Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022.

The NFL knocked it out of the park with this game. So often, the reigning Super Bowl Champ is given a laying duck in week one, but this is a hot matchup to open the season.

We’ve gone 29 weeks without meaningful football, but we have finally arrived at Week 1. This first game has the potential also to be the matchup of the final game in Arizona. The Bills are the league favorite to win the Super Bowl, and the Rams are the second favorite in the NFC behind the Tampa Bay buccaneers. Both teams and fans alike are set for fantastic seasons.

Touchdown Prop

Many bettors will be taking Stefon Diggs to score a touchdown in this first game, but with Jalen Ramsey in the secondary, he will not have many opportunities. Instead, bettors should take a peek at Gabriel Davis’ prop. This is Davis’ third year in the league, and he’s recorded 500+ yards in his previous two seasons. Davis has struggled with touchdowns in the past, only carrying 13 career TDs, but this could be his breakout year. Josh Allen will be airing it out, and bettors can expect one or two to be directed to Davis.

Field Goal Props

These are two of the best offenses in the league, and while the Bills have the best defense in the NFL, the LAs Rams D is certainly not one that should be trifled with. These are exceptionally well-balanced teams, and it’s going to be fun to see how it plays out. Being Week 1, these offenses will struggle to get things going early, so bettors should expect a field goal or two. Draft Kings offers the perfect prop for this.

Bonus Pick

Most bettors have probably heard about this prop by now, but incase you haven’t, it’s worth pointing out.

The Los Angeles Rams are (-160) for over 2.5 touchdowns, but Matt Gay over 2.5 PATs is (+125). While PATs are not as consistent as they once were, the odds speak for themselves. It’s a solid pick to get in on the Thursday night action.
