Younghoe Koo
Over 1.5 Field Goals Made (+120, DraftKings)

The Falcons attempt field goals at the sixth-highest rate above expectation, according to my fourth-down model.

Koo’s only field-goal miss at home this season was a blocked 63-yard attempt. He’s gone over 1.5 field goals in three of four home games this season and 18 of 24 during his three-plus seasons with the Falcons.

I project him to go over this total 51.5% of the time, so getting plus money here is nice. I’d bet this down to +110.

Eddy Pineiro
Over 4.5 Kicking Points (-130, DraftKings)

Pineiro has attempted 16 field goals in eight games. In the three games that have seen P.J. Walker start at quarterback, Pineiro has attempted seven extra points and four field goals. At his career extra point and field goal percentage rates, that equates to 5.6 kicking points per game. Carolina has produced its two best offensive games of the season over the last two weeks with Walker under center.

I project Pineiro to go over this 62% of the time and would bet it to -140.

Jason Sanders
Under 1.5 Field Goals Made (-105, BetMGM)

There will be a 16-mph crosswind during Dolphins vs. Bears on Sunday, which will hurt long field-goal attempts. Saunders has been good this season, but all three of his misses have come from 50 yards or longer.

Saunders has gone under this total in five of eight games so far this season. I project a 57.5% chance of going under this total and would bet it to -110.
