"Monday Night Football" in Week 11 brings us an AFC West matchup between two teams that many viewed as Super Bowl contenders entering the year. While the Kansas City Chiefs have seemed to hold up their end of the bargain, the Los Angeles Chargers have floundered this season, currently sitting at 4-6.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on this game, here are four of the best prop bets for the Week 11 matchup between the Chiefs and Chargers.

All betting lines, odds and spreads are available via FanDuel Sportsbook.

1. Any Time Touchdown Scorer: Tyreek Hill (-105)

Tyreek Hill is coming into this game on a touchdown hot streak. Since his return to the field in Week 6, Hill has scored in four of those five games, finding the end zone five times during that span. Despite ranking No. 4 in passing yards allowed per game, the Chargers are allowing 1.4 passing TDs per game (No. 12 in the NFL). While Kansas City's offense has a treasure trove of weapons, Hill's recent play suggests he has a chance to score again Monday night.

2. To Score 2+ Touchdowns: Melvin Gordon (+440)

Melvin Gordon sat out for the first half of the season amidst a contract dispute, and had a slow start upon his return. However, he has scored a combined four touchdowns over his last three games, including a two-touchdown performance against a Green Bay Packers team that ranks No. 27 in rushing touchdowns allowed per game. Considering the Chiefs rank No. 29 in that same metric, Gordon has a chance to have a huge game here.

3. Patrick Mahomes - Passing Yards: Under 318.5 (-112)

Mahomes is going on the road into a tough matchup when it comes to passing yards, as the Chargers rank No. 4 in the NFL in passing yards allowed per game (207.8). While he has hit this over in all but three starts this season, Mahomes could struggle to reach 319 passing yards against a Chargers team that hasn't allowed an opposing passer to reach this total since Week 3.

4. First Quarter Winner: Kansas City Chiefs (-156)

The Kansas City Chiefs haven't been as dominant in the first quarter as they were last season, but they have taken a lead into the second quarter in each of Mahomes' last three starts. Additionally, the Chiefs rank No. 6 in the NFL in first quarter points (6.4), while the Chargers are tied at No. 16 (4.0).
