The NFL officially unveiled the full 2022 season schedule on Thursday night, letting fans know exactly when they can expect every matchup during the 18-week campaign. One of the more anticipated games of the year happens right off the bat in the form of the Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Rams Week 1 matchup.

Although there are a few months before the Bills and Rams collide, FanDuel Sportsbook already has the opening odds for the Week 1 meeting. It's projected to be a close encounter as things stand, with the Buffalo narrowly edging out its counterpart.

Bills vs Rams Week 1 Odds

FanDuel Sportsbook is listing the Bills as the slight 1-point road favorite with -105 odds to cover, whereas the Rams are -115 to cover as the 1-point underdog. Buffalo also sits at -110 odds on the moneyline while the defending Super Bowl champions are -106.

Fans can anticipate a high-flying affair when these two juggernauts collide. The 51.5-point total is one of the highest of Week 1 and the two teams shouldn't have an issue hitting the over after finishing 2021 with two of the six best offensive units.

The matchup serves as a good test for the Bills, who've been labeled as contenders in recent years but struggle to get over the playoff hump. They've made some significant improvements this offseason and there's no better game than this one to put them to the test.

Meanwhile, the Rams are going to want to start off their championship defense with a victory. They lost, 35-32, the last time they faced the Bills, but that was back in 2020 and Los Angeles is a lot stronger now with Matthew Stafford leading the offense.

The Bills vs. Rams Week 1 matchup could also serve as a potential Super Bowl preview. FanDuel Sportsbook is giving a Buffalo and Los Angeles Super Bowl LVII matchup +2500 odds (T-No. 3) to happen in February.
