Before you pick your upset special for Week 4, you need to hear what NFL expert handicapper Mike Tierney has to say. He knows a good upset pick when he sees one, nailing both of his Week 1 picks. Tierney jumped on the Bengals (+3), who won at 34-23 at the Colts, and the Dolphins (+1.5), who won 27-20 at the Titans. In Week 2, he picked the Dolphins again (+3) against the Jets. Miami led 20-0 at halftime in a 20-12 victory, another easy winner for Tierney and his followers.
No one knows the NFL like SportsLine expert "Top Dog." A national sportswriter whose work has appeared in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, Tierney has reported from seven Super Bowls. He has his finger on the pulse of the league.
Now, Tierney has studied the matchups and has revealed his two upset NFL picks for Week 4.
We can tell you one of those teams is the Lions, three-point underdogs at the Cowboys. Tierney says the offense-challenged Cowboys shouldn't be favored by anyone, especially against a Lions team that found its groove last week in a rout of the Patriots.
His other underdog pick is not one on the radar of most Week 4 upset predictions, and those following Tierney's picks this season may be shocked by the selection. He points to two huge x-factors that he believes turn the underdog into his favorite.
