Most of the evidence for Dark matter and all arguments against MOND suggest a particle-like origin. The list is too long to explain every point in detail here. Do you have more specific questions?

MOND/TeVeS is not the only alternative to real dark matter.

For example Mimetic Dark Matter may gain some echo in the next months
