2017 NFL win total odds: Jaguars set at 5.5 wins

The 2017 NFL Draft has come and gone and we know all the players that the teams have added to their roster. The biggest impact players the Jaguars added were running back Leonard Fournette and offensive lineman Cam Robinson, obvious. How much that will actually change the Jaguars fortunes remains to be seen, but apparently Las Vegas doesn't think it will improve the Jaguars all that much.

Currently, it's set at over/under 5.5 wins.

If I were a betting man, and I'm not (promise), I would probably steer clear of this. Just looking at the Jaguars 2017 scheduled and how they begin the year, it looks rough. Even if they're able to run the ball really will with Fournette and adding Robinson, it's still a tough five games to open the season. Not to mention that the Jaguars have been abysmal on the road the past five or six years, notably Blake Bortles who only has two wins on the road in his career. One of those was the game against the Baltimore Ravens where they lucked into a win.

Right now I see the team in the 6-10 range, as they've got to show me before I believe in them, but I'm not even confident enough in that that I'd bet on it. I also think a lot would have to go wrong for the team to finish with less than five wins.
