The NFL opens up Thursday with Bills vs. Rams. Fantasy lineups and bets are locked, and it’s now officially Same Game Parlay season — at least in my eyes.

New to SGPs? Here’s everything you need to know.

If you’re familiar with same game parlays, I’ll just shut my trap and get to some popular picks for Thursday.

We hit up Caesars Sportsbook earlier Thursday and asked which Bills vs. Rams Same Game Parlay plays are getting hit the hardest.

Here are the top five, sorted by handle at the shop.

1. Josh Allen Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns

Allen crushed this number the last time these two clubs met, ringing up four scores through the air.

The 2022 preseason MVP favorite generated multiple passing touchdowns in 15 of his 19 games overall last season. He went berserk down the stretch, surpassing the total in six of the final seven with 19 total passing scores across that span.

The over on Allen’s passing touchdowns is the more expensive pick at -166, while under bettors get +120 odds.

2. Bills -3.5

Buffalo is the hot side, and bettors laying 3.5 get +110 (the Rams, meanwhile, are +3.5 at -151).

The Bills were one of the best bets against the spread last season. Their 10-7-2 (58.8%) mark was fifth in football and second in the AFC, behind only the Bengals.

Using Action Network’s NFL public betting data, 57% of the 200,000-plus wagers are also on the Bills minus the points.

3. Josh Allen Over 35.5 Rushing Yards

Here’s another over on Allen, whose legs give him fantasy upside somewhere around Mars.

He’s a true dual threat, off a year in which he ranked third in the league in carries (7.2) and yards (44.9) per game for quarterbacks.

Allen, who also scored six times as a runner last year, ate up at least 35 yards on the ground in eight of the final nine.

4. Matthew Stafford Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns

Stafford was usually good for multiple passing scores en route to last year’s Super Bowl, surpassing the number in all but four games.

The Bills are talented defensively, but they’re banged up on the back end. Cornerback Tre’Davious White’s sidelined, while safety Jordan Poyer’s playing despite a recent injury.

5. Cooper Kupp Anytime Touchdowns 

No wide receiver was better at finding the endzone last season than Kupp, whose 16 scores paced the NFL.

He and Stafford developed the best connection in football, with Kupp scoring a touchdown in nine of his final 10 games.

Kupp’s reception and yard props are over/under 7.5 and 90.5 at Caesars, respectively.
