Coming off two straight losses, the Kansas City Chiefs travel to Mile High to take on the Denver Broncos. Kansas City is currently a 3-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this one, here are four of the best prop bets for the Thursday night game between the Broncos and Chiefs.

1. Phillip Lindsay - Rushing Yards: Over 70.5 (-108)

Kansas City's top interior defensive lineman, Chris Jones, has been ruled out, and that could be a problem for the Chiefs' run defense. Jones missed a significant chunk of time in Week 5, didn't suit up in Week 6, and the Chiefs went on to surrender 186.0 rushing yards per game during that stretch. Phillip Lindsay, meanwhile, is averaging 92.0 rushing yards across his last two games, and could feast against Kansas City's banged up run defense.

2. Patrick Mahomes - Passing Yards: Under 309.5 (-112)

While picking against Patrick Mahomes is always a nerve-wracking experience, he hasn't looked quite as dominant since his ankle injury flared up again in Week 5. He's averaging 297.0 passing yards over his last two games, which, while impressive, is significantly less than the 377.5 yards he averaged over the first four weeks of the season. Mahomes has also played the Broncos three times in his career, and he's never reached 310 passing yards, averaging 297.0 during that stretch.

3. Joe Flacco - Passing Yards: Under 246.5 (-112)

While Denver started out 0-4, the Broncos have since ripped off two straight wins, largely thanks to putting an emphasis on the running game. Joe Flacco has been used as more of a game manager recently, failing to reach 185 passing yards in back-to-back weeks, and being held under 247 passing yards in three of his last four games. Given how bad KC's run defense has been lately, it's fair to expect Denver to continue using a run-heavy approach, which could keep Flacco under 247 passing yards tonight.

4. Tyreek Hill - Receiving Yards: Over 75.5 (-112)

Even with Mahomes not looking fully healthy, Tyreek Hill still has a chance to reach 76 receiving yards. Despite playing just 50 percent of the snaps in his return from injury against the Houston Texans last week, Hill still turned 10 targets into five receptions for 80 yards. Hill's 10 targets were also four more than any other Chief saw last week. Now expected to see a much larger snap share, Hill, who averaged 98.0 receiving yards across his last six regular-season games in 2018, could be in for a productive night here.
