Over the last two-plus NFL seasons, Tierney is an incredible 54-30 picking NFL totals. Last week, he picked up where he left off last year, starting the season 2-0 on NFL totals. He told SportsLine members to back the Under (46) in 49ers-Vikings, despite a widespread belief it would be a high-scoring contest. Minnesota won 24-16, and the Under 46 cashed with almost a touchdown to spare.
