    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.

    CJ 50-1 and Sankey 75-1.

    I bet CJ's ego is hurt by being in the middle of the barrel.

    Also, why is Reggie Bush dead last? He has a better chance than some of the backs listed.

    I cannot be the only person who believes McCoy is overrated.

    Nah, he's not overrated at all. McCoy is who Reggie Bush was suppose to be coming out of USC.

    Yea, I mean he is a good/great dual purpose back but with only one really great year he is somewhat expected to lead the league in rushing?

    Nah, thats bogus.

    Jamaal Charles wouldn't be the worst bet in the world.

    TitanJeff - can you add these odds to sports book so we can bet on it?

    Oh yeah, no doubt he can. Dude has some serious talent and will be in a wide open fast pace offense.

    This day and age, the rushing title is up for grabs by any RB. A semi talented RB can lead the league in rushing these days in the right offense.

    Now if I wanted 2-3 yards on 3rd and 2, I'll take Peterson all day over McCoy.
