The Buffalo Bills, this year’s Super Bowl favorite, will visit the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the first NFL game of the 2022 season on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 8:20 p.m.
That and much more became clear as the complete 2022 NFL regular season schedule was released in its entirety on Thursday night.
FanDuel Sportsbook New York currently has the Bills as the +650 favorite to win the Super Bowl, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+750) and the Kansas City Chiefs (+950) right behind.
“The Bills-Rams game obviously looks like the top matchup of the week with the Super Bowl champions playing the Super Bowl favorites for this year,” Adam Pullen, assistant director of trading for Caesars Sportsbook, said in a news release. “Many people are saying it’s a matter of when not if the Bills win a Super Bowl. This is a big year for them and certainly a big stage for them to open the season at the Super Bowl champions. They’ll have to prove it right off the bat.”
Caesars Sportsbook has the Bills as a 1-point underdog (+100 moneyline) with the total over/under points at 52.5. DraftKings also has the Bills as a 1-point underdog with the total points at 52.
DraftKings Sportsbook New York released individual point spreads and moneyline numbers for just about every game for NFL betting this season.
As it relates to New York sports betting, here is a look at what DraftKings currently offers for the Bills, New York Jets and New York Giants.
Below are schedules for each of the three. It lists (left to right) the week, NY team (point spread, moneyline), opponent, date and time.
Buffalo Bills 2022 Schedule
The Bills will meet the Chiefs in Week 6 in a rematch of Buffalo's devastating playoff loss last year. The Bills also travel to Detroit on Thanksgiving Day to meet the Lions.
New York Jets 2022 Schedule
The Jets start their season with four games against opponents from the tough AFC North and do not play an AFC East division foe until Week 8.
It will be interesting to see if the Jets' much-ballyhooed three first-round draft picks can make a difference early.
New York Giants 2022 Schedule
The Giants also have a Thanksgiving game in Dallas. They are favored in only four of their games.
