LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) – The Green Bay Packers usually find themselves in contention for a playoff spot but will they win at least 11 games in 2014?

View 2015 Super Bowl Odds

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Packers’ over/under for number of regular season wins in 2014 is sitting at 10.5 after they only won eight games a year ago. Green Bay’s 2015 Super Bowl odds are also sitting at 11/1, which is comparable to Seattle (13/2), Denver (13/2), San Francisco (7/1) and New England’s (9/1) odds.

As usual, GM Ted Thompson was cautious with his spending in free agency. The Packers did sign Julius Peppers in hopes that he’ll start on the edge this season, but running back Michael Hill and nose tackle Letroy Guion are viewed primary as roster depth. Meanwhile, James Jones (Raiders), Marshall Newhouse (Bengals), Evan Dietrich-Smith (Bucs), C.J. Wilson (Raiders) and M.D. Jennings (Bears) all left via free agency.

The Packers alternated addressing thier defense and offense during the first six rounds of the NFL draft. They selected Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix with the 21st overall pick and then took Fresno State receiver Davante Adams in the second round. In the third they took defensive tackle Khyri Thornton out of Southern Miss and tight end Richard Rodgers out of California.

Thanks in large part to Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and a dynamic group of receivers, the Packers should compete for at least a wild card spot in 2014. But will they win over 10.5 games this season? The Bears and Lions have improved, and the Vikings are challenging due to Adrian Peterson. Granted, the injury bug bit the team hard a year ago but I don’t know if they did enough this offseason to account for three addition victories. A 10-6 season seems realistic.
