The last time we looked at the over/under season win totals, the Jacksonville Jaguars were marked at 4.5 wins across the board. Back then I thought I Jaguars were a pretty solid bet on the over, and that has not changed.
Some of the positive momentum carrying the Jaguars through the offseason has not gone unnoticed, and the over/under win total was recently updated.

Over 5 (-135)
Under 5 (+105)
While it may not seem like a lot, a half game bump is not insignificant, given it has come during the offseason. Usually Vegas holds firm on their stance of a team until they see them play an actual regular season game, and this appears to be a reflection on the change in perception of the team. I have to imagine there is a lot of action on the over, especially with how bad the AFC South projects to be. Taking a look at their schedule below, I think the low end for the Jaguars is 6 wins and, if things break right and key players develop, they could manage 8 or 9 wins.
