Two running backs co-favorite to lead NFL in touchdowns scored


USA Today Sports

The co-favorites to lead the NFL in touchdowns scored for the 2015-16 season features ‘Beast Mode’ and a question mark. William Hill U.S. opened both Marshawn Lynch and Adrian Peterson at 11/2, the tops odds to score the most touchdowns next season.

There is no doubt that Lynch deserves the designation, as he has scored a combined 56 regular season touchdowns since the 2011 season. That means that Lynch has found the endzone an average of 14 times per season.

Peterson is one of the best running backs in recent memory, but he played only one game last season and scored no touchdowns due ti his suspension stemming from child abuse allegations. However, ‘AP’ has never scored less than 11 touchdowns in one season, many of which were cut short due to injury.

Below is a complete list of odds to lead the NFL in touchdowns scored courtesy of William Hill U.S.:

Marshawn Lynch 11/2
Adrian Peterson 11/2
Calvin Johnson 8/1
Dez Bryant 10/1
Jamaal Charles 10/1
Arian Foster 12/1
Eddie Lacy 12/1
Jordy Nelson 15/1
Odell Beckham Jr. 15/1
