TALLAHASSEE, FL (TheSpread) – The defending national champions have big expectations for the 2014 season, but how many wins are in the future of Florida State?

According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the over/under win total odds for the Seminoles this season have been set at 11.5. The over has odds of -105, while the under has a money line of -125.

It is easy to understand while Florida State is coming into this season as one of the national title favorites. The 2014 BCS Championship Game winner has a lot of returning talent on offense, with seven starters back. Jameis Winston is back for his sophomore season after throwing for 4,057 yards and 40 touchdowns last year, which won him the Heisman. Winston has receiver Rashad Greene back, who caught 76 passes for 1,128 yards and nine scores. Four starters are also back on the offensive line, which should give Winston plenty of time to do his damages.

Defensively, Florida State held opponents to just 12.1 points per game last season, which led the nation. FSU also had the top passing defense in the country, allowing just 156.6 yards per game through the air. Three starters are back in the secondary, and Nate Andrews, who had four interceptions last season, will be in the mix to add depth. FSU loses some key pieces up front, but the Seminoles should be able to plug in fresh bodies that can rise to the occasion.

When looking to get to 11.5 wins, you have to breakdown the schedule. Florida State actually opens the year with a tough contest, facing Oklahoma State in Arlington, Texas. FSU then faces Clemson a few weeks later and also has road trips to N.C. State, Louisville and Miami. The Seminoles will also host Notre Dame and Florida in big games later in the season. Florida State shouldn’t have much trouble at home, but there is certainly a chance FSU could slip up on the road. Should Florida State reach the ACC Championship and the four-team playoff, the Seminoles should easily hit 12 wins. However, if an ACC title isn’t in the cards, FSU likely won’t hit 12.
