Dolphins vs. Saints 2013, NFL picks Week 4: New Orleans falls short of clean sweep among experts

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints are heavily favored to best the Miami Dolphins on Monday Night Football, at least by experts around the Internet.

The Miami Dolphins and New Orleans Saints are set to face off in Week 4, in a game that is more compelling now than most figured it would be at the start of the season. Miami was considered a "team to watch" for its potential to break out, but through three weeks, the Dolphins have established themselves as contenders and are a threat to best Drew Brees and his Saints.

Unfortunately for Miami, it is taking on the aforementioned Brees at his home stadium, where he's typically at his best. Ryan Tannehill and Mike Wallace have proven they can be a potent combination on their best day, though it's Brian Hartline who leads the way with 238 receiving yards. If Miami is to win this one, it will need to put up an awful lot of yards, because Brees certainly will.

As far as the experts are concerned, they're not really betting on Miami to pull off the upset and remain unbeaten. All eight of the experts at CBS Sports picked New Orleans to win, as did both of Yahoo's experts and all 13 of the experts picking for ESPN.

SB Nation's experts went a different route, however. Three of the five picked New Orleans, but Jason Chilton and Stephen White are feeling the upset and went with Miami. The game is set for 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN's Monday Night Football.
