LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Lions will have a new look for 2014 but will that translate into more victories?

The Lions went through a whirlwind of changes this offseason, first firing Jim Schwartz and replacing him with former Ravens offensive coordinator and Colts head coach Jim Caldwell. Coordinators Scott Linehan and Gunther Cunningham were also fired and replaced with Joe Lombardi and Teryl Austin, respectively.

In free agency the Lions signed potential starters Jed Collins (Saints), Golden Tate (Seahawks) and James Ihedigbo (Ravens), as well as adding roster depth in Corvey Irvin (Cowboys), Darryl Tapp (Redskins), Kourtnei Brown (Bills) and Cassius Vaughn (Colts). Dan Orlovsky was also signed to back up Matthew Stafford. 

In the draft the Lions gave Stafford yet another weapon in the passing game by selecting North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron in the first round. BYU linebacker Kyle Van Noy was also added in the second while Arkansas center Travis Swanson was taken in the third.

Thanks to Stafford, Calvin Johnson and Reggie Bush, the Lions figure to score plenty of points this season but the secondary remains the biggest question mark on the entire team. Detroit released cornerback Chris Houston last week and thus, the team is awfully thin at cornerback. According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Lions' win total for 2014 is sitting at over/under 8.5 games, which is appropriate. I could see this team maxing out at nine wins with a floor of seven, so there's not much value in the 8.5 number for bettors.
