The Green Bay Packers (6-1) will travel to Kansas City to take on the Patrick Mahomes-less Chiefs (5-2) in a Week 8 showdown on "Sunday Night Football." Green Bay is currently listed as a 4-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to place a few alternative wagers on Sunday night's game, here are four of the best prop bets you can put your money on.

1. Team to Score First: Green Bay Packers (-130)

This prop would be close to a toss-up if Patrick Mahomes was playing on Sunday, but since the star QB is sitting this one out, the Packers should have the advantage here. Kansas City isn't too strong defensively (No. 26 in total defense) and its offense may struggle to find its rhythm with Matt Moore under center, especially against a Packers defense that ranks No. 9 in opponents points per game (PPG). Additionally, the Packers' offense is coming off a 42-point performance against the Oakland Raiders and is averaging 373.4 total yards per game (No. 9 in the NFL).

2. Away Team Total Points: Over 26.5 (-110)

The Packers offense has been at its best the last three weeks, averaging 33.0 per contest in three games played during that span. While they've successfully implemented a solid bend-don't-break approach on defense (19.9 points allowed per game, No. 9 in the NFL) that clearly doesn't bode well for the Chiefs. Additionally, Green Bay has really run up the scoreboard on the Chiefs in recent seasons, having scored 33 or more points in three of their last four head-to-head matchups.

3. Aaron Rodgers Passing TDs: Over 1.5 (-164)

While there was some concern initially, it looks as though Aaron Rodgers has really found his groove in Matt LeFleur's offensive scheme. The 35-year-old signal caller has showed great command of the over the past two weeks, tossing at least two touchdowns in each of his last two games (seven total over that span). Additionally, Rodgers has tossed at least two scores in four of the seven games he's played this season and of those four, three have come in the last four weeks.

4. Matt Moore Passing Yards: Under 252.5 (-112)

Matt Moore has a solid reputation as one of the league's more serviceable quarterbacks, but if his track record is any indication, don't expect a big passing performance out of him against the Packers. In 30 career starts, Moore has eclipsed 253 yards passing on just four occasions. Additionally, while they haven't been great against the pass comparatively, the Packers are allowing 252.1 yards passing per game (No. 21 in the NFL), just below the under for this prop.
