Alvin Kamara and Ezekiel Elliott are two of the NFL's most talented running backs, and if you're having trouble deciding which player might have the scoring edge over the other, you're not alone.

Doubling as two of the most prolific fantasy backs in the league heading into the 2019 season, Kamara and Elliott have also opened tied for the best odds to lead the NFL in rushing touchdowns this upcoming season, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

With 14 rushing TDs last season, Kamara certainly finished with a leg up on Elliott and his six TDs in the scoring department in 2018. Kamara's 14 scores on the ground finished behind only Todd Gurley and his 17 rushing TDs last season.

While TDs and yards can prove two completely different stories over the course of a season, such as in the case of John Ross or Julio Jones last year, Elliott did open noticeably ahead of Kamara as the betting favorite to lead the league in rushing yards this season.
