One of the best primetime matchups of the year should take place on Sunday Night Football, as the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers play a division battle

The Chargers covered in Week 2 in Kansas City, losing 27-24. With both of these teams looking to make the playoffs this season, we should get an entertaining matchup tonight. 

There’s nothing better than locking in some prop bets for primetime football, so here are three I’m considering for this matchup: 

Best NFL Prop Bets for Chiefs vs. Chargers

  • Isiah Pacheco OVER 53.5 Rushing Yards
  • Keenan Allen Anytime Touchdown Scorer
  • Kadarius Toney OVER 4.5 Receptions

Isiah Pacheco OVER 53.5 Rushing Yards

Isiah Pacheco has taken over as the lead runner for the Chiefs, with Clyde Edwards-Helaire not even registering a carry in Week 10. 

Pacheco ran for 82 yards on 16 carries against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and now he gets a favorable matchup with the Chargers in Week 11. 

Los Angeles is 31st in the league in opponent yards per carry allowed, giving up 5.4 yards per tote. That should play right into Pacheco’s hands, and if he sees similar usage to last week he will soar past this number. 

Keenan Allen Anytime Touchdown Scorer

Since Keenan Allen is expected to play this week, taking him to score is a solid bet against Kansas City.

This could be a high-scoring affair, and Herbert finally has his safety blanket in Allen back in the lineup.

Despite playing just the first half in Week 1, Allen caught four passes for 66 yards.

The Chargers are going to need to throw the ball to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and company, so I'll take Allen to find the end zone tonight at better odds than Williams. 

Kadarius Toney OVER 4.5 Receptions

Kadarius Toney made a major impact in his second career game with the Chiefs, catching four passes for 57 yards and a score in Week 10.

He did this while only playing 44 percent of the team's snaps last week, and I'd expect that number to jump with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman both out of the lineup.

If that does happen, Toney should clear his receptions prop, set at 4.5 for this Sunday night showdown.

Toney saw five targets in just 28 snaps in Week 10, so he could push seven or eight targets with an increased snap share this week.
