What more could you ask for in a "Monday Night Football" game featuring one of the hottest teams in the league led by the most explosive scoring quarterback through the first three games in NFL history?  


I'll tell you what: 5 of the craziest prop bets available for tonight's AFC West divisional rivalry between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs. 

5. Kansas City Chiefs to Win by 1-13 Points

Odds: (+140)

I know what you're thinking, aren't the Chiefs the outright favorites in this game? The answer to that is yes. However, riding Kansas City on the moneyline at -170 doesn't exactly pay out the same as taking the favorite to win by an incredibly wide 1-to-13-point margin. Fun fact: Excluding the two tied games, 44 of all 60 games played so far this NFL season have been decided by between 1-13 points, and the last time we noticed this split, the favorited Cleveland Browns won under nearly the exact same betting circumstances.

4. Patrick Mahomes to Throw for 350+ Yards

Odds: (+280)

It's easy to be deterred by a 300-plus line for passing yards, but if there's one quarterback in the league that you can expect the most reasonable shot of attaining that number right now, it's Patrick Mahomes. Not to mention, if Mahomes throws for 350 or more yards through the air, it's hard to imagine a final score that doesn't have the Chiefs on top. 


3. Phillip Lindsay to Rush for 50+ Yards AND the Broncos to Win

Odds: (+370)

Lindsay has been one of the most pleasant backfield surprises across the entire league this season, and he's only failed to rush for more than 50 yards once through three games thus far. The only game he didn't crack 50 yards on the ground was also cut short with an early ejection, but Lindsay had already racked up 20 yards on just four carries. The Broncos have also won both games that he had more than 50 rushing yards, and lost the lone game Lindsay had fewer than 50. 

2. Tyreek Hill to Score First Touchdown of the Game

Odds: (+1000)

Tyreek Hill has been the most exciting wide-receiving weapon for the most explosive passing offense in the NFL this season. If you're going to place your faith in the Chiefs scoring the first touchdown, looking toward Hill to haul in a TD from Mahomes isn't a bad angle at 10/1.

Odds: (+950)

Even though we've already covered Phillip Lindsay's ability to crack 50 rushing yards, his ability to score multiple touchdowns is where things get interesting – hence the +950 look. He's only scored one touchdown on the season (receiving), but he's got 198 rushing yards to show for it. The upside here is that Lindsay can score two TDs through any method, whether it's on the ground or through the air.
