Dolphins' 2014 Win Total Odds

Miami Dolphins 2015 Super Bowl odds NFL betting

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - The Dolphins haven't won more than 8 games since 2008. Will that trend change in 2014?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Dolphins' win total for 2014 has been set at 8. The under currently carries odds have -140 while the over is carrying odds of +110, so clearly the oddsmakers believe there's a better chance Miami will finish with fewer than 8 wins in 2014. The Dolphins' current Super Bowl odds are also 50/1.

In free agency the Dolphins signed running back Knowshon Moreno, although he's currently dealing with a knee injury and might lose the starting job to incumbent Lamar Miller. Miami also added Branden Albert, who will start at left tackle, guard Shelley Smith, cornerback Cortland Finnegan, safety Louis Delmas and defensive lineman Earl Mitchell. All of these players should have an impact role for Miami in 2014.

Meanwhile, the Dolphins parted ways with guard John Jerry (Giants), nose tackle Paul Soliai (Falcons), linebacker Austin Spitler (Ravens), cornerbacks Chris Owens (Chiefs) and Nolan Carroll (Eagles), and safety Chris Clemons (Texans). The team also traded offensive tackle Jonathan Martin to the 49ers for a conditional seventh-round pick in 2015.

The Dolphins continued to re-make their offensive line in the draft with the selection of Tennessee's JaWuan James in the first round. Receiver Jarvis Landry from LSU was selected in the second and offensive tackle Billy Turner from North Dakota State was taken off the board in the third.

Now that the Martin-Richie Incognito situation is behind them, the Dolphins should be less distracted in '14 than they were at times in '13. But that doesn't mean they'll compete with the Patriots in the AFC East. They already lost Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey (hip) for three months and are scrambling to replace him. The additions of Albert and James should help the O-line and the offense figures to be more effective under Bill Lazor than it was under Mike Sherman.

That said, Ryan Tannehill is entering a make-or-break season and it's fair to ask if this team has enough playmakers on both sides of the ball. While the division is weak as a whole (outside of New England, of course), the Dolphins are likely to be right around the 8-win mark again in 2014. It's unlikely that they challenge for a playoff berth.
