LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Jacksonville Jaguars made plenty of personnel changes this offseason but will they equate to more wins?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Jaguars' win total for 2014 is currently sitting at over/under 5. That number is the lowest among the 32 teams and Jacksonville also has very long odds to win the 2015 Super Bowl at 200/1 and conference at 100/1.

The Jaguars added several potential starters this offseason by signing free agents Toby Gerhart, who projects as the team's starting running back, and defensive linemen Red Bryant and Chris Clemons. Jacksonville also signed guard Zane Beadles, linebacker Dekoda Watson and wideout Tandon Doss.

In the draft the Jags believe they've found their franchise quarterback in Blake Bortles, who was selected with the third overall pick. Of course just a few years ago Jacksonville thought it had its quarterback of the future in Blaine Gabbert, who was traded to the 49ers this offseason for a late round pick. Time will tell if Bortles will have more success than Gabbert, who struggled with multiple scheme and coaching changes throughout his brief Jaguar career.

At least the Jags attempted to get Bortles some weapons for door the road. They drafted USC wideout Marqise Lee with the 39th overall pick and then later in the second round added Penn State receiver Allen Robinson with the 61st overall pick. The team also took Miami guard Brandon Linder in the third round and Oklahoma cornerback Aaron Colvin.

Could the Jags win over 5 games this year? I actually really liked the additions they made to the defensive line and Gerhart is a punishing runner that should keep the team in games. Gus Bradley learned how to build a team from his days in Seattle and he's seemingly trying to turn the Jags into the Seahawks of the AFC South. But will Chad Henne play with consistency? That's the question. He can be competitive for a handful of games and then get cold and take the team down with him. Bortles is still a year away from starting but if Henne struggles, will Bradley feel pressure to play the rookie?

Another thing to consider when deciding whether or not you want to play on the Jags' total is the impact of Justin Blackmon being out for the year. While adding Lee and Robinson should help, Henne doesn't have experienced weapons in the passing game outside of Cecil Shorts. I just don't trust the offense enough to bet the over but with the additions to the running game and defense, I don't feel comfortable with the under either. There's just not much value for bettors either way on this total.
