    Peterson made slight favorite over McCoy for rushing title
    Posted by Mike Wilkening on June 12, 2014

    You can wager on a lot of things in Nevada, but you can’t wager on whether you believe Adrian Peterson or LeSean McCoy is the better player.

    However, you can weigh in on whether Peterson or McCoy will be the NFL’s most productive player at his position in 2014, at least as measured by rushing yards.

    Nevada linemaker / sports book operator CG Technology has set odds on the winner of the 2014 rushing title, and it’s Peterson, the Vikings’ star, who has been given the slight edge over McCoy, the Eagles’ standout.

    CG Technology has installed Peterson as the 4-1 favorite to lead the league in regular season rushing yards, with McCoy the second choice at 5-1. The “field” — every other player who isn’t a wagering option — is 8-1.

    Five backs — Jamaal Charles (10-1), Marshawn Lynch (12-1), Alfred Morris (12-1), Matt Forte (14-1) and Doug Martin (18-1) — have odds between 10- and 20-1, with every other back greater than 20-1.

    Here is the complete list of CG’s rushing title odds as of June 11:

    Adrian Peterson: 4-1.

    LeSean McCoy: 5-1.

    Field (all players not listed): 8-1.

    Jamaal Charles: 10-1.

    Marshawn Lynch: 12-1.

    Alfred Morris: 12-1.

    Matt Forte: 14-1.

    Doug Martin: 18-1.

    Arian Foster: 20-1.

    Montee Ball: 22-1.

    Eddie Lacy: 22-1.

    Zac Stacy: 25-1.

    Giovani Bernard: 30-1.

    DeMarco Murray: 30-1.

    Le’Veon Bell: 35-1.

    Ryan Mathews: 35-1.

    Andre Ellington: 40-1.

    C.J. Spiller: 40-1.

    Ben Tate: 40-1.

    Toby Gerhart: 50-1

    Rashad Jennings: 50-1.

    Chris Johnson: 50-1.

    Frank Gore: 60-1.

    Stevan Ridley: 60-1.

    Steven Jackson: 75-1.

    Bishop Sankey: 75-1.

    DeAngelo Williams: 80-1.

    Chris Ivory: 100-1.

    Fred Jackson: 100-1.

    Maurice Jones-Drew: 100-1.

    Darren McFadden: 100-1.

    Lamar Miller: 100-1.

    Knowshon Moreno: 100-1.

    Trent Richardson: 100-1.

    I wouldn't bet on Stacey to win it! Not with the Rams schedule! Love to see it, though!

    That's better than our SB chances. I find that interesting.

    Not too bad. He's got a better chance than Monte Ball or Doug Martin in my opinion. I guess it depends on Tre Mason as well. He could possibly steal quite a bit of carries.

    I wouldn't bet on him with 100-1 odds. He's just too slow to win the rushing title.

    Eh, not necessarily. Emmitt Smith, Terrell Davis, Shaun Alexander, Arian Foster all won the rushing title and were all like 4.6 or slower in the 40 yard dash. Stacy ran a 4.5. He's definitely fast enough.

    Plus of cause starting 0-4 we'll probably be passing a lot to try and come from behind.

    If Stacy continues to improve his game, he is going to be top 5 if not the best. We are built to run the ball and he was born to carry it.

    This will become the battle cry for this coming season. Throw Tre Mason into the mix and let's rock 'n roll. :rockon:

    I don't know if you made that up, but it's pretty slick.

    Bush doesn't really get enough rush opportunities to be much of a threat to win the rushing title. Joique bell emerged as a very good rusher for the Lions last year allowing Reggie to be used more as a scatback receiver.

    You have a point there, but Stacy had less than 4 yards per carry, and I'm not even sure he's the best RB on the team.

    That's a fair statement. Stacy is definitely the starter as we speak, but Mason or even Cunningham could really take some carries away. I think the RB spot is an exciting position for the Rams. Let's just hope Mason isn't another Pead. But I don't think he will be.
