(The Spread) – Which running back will lead the CFL in rushing yards this season? Let’s check out the odds.

Oddsmakers have installed Toronto’s Cory Boyd as a 9/4 favorite to lead the league in rushing in 2012, while Calgary’s Jon Cornish has the next best odds at 5/2. Brandon Whitaker of Montreal is 3/1, Hugh Charles of Edmonton is 15/2 and Hamilton’s Avon Cobourne is 17/2. The B.C. Lions’ Andrew Harris is a 19/2 long shot.

Jerome Messam (now of the Miami Dolphins) was one of the All-Stars of the 2011 CFL season, as was Whitaker. Messam and Cornish were also the running backs of the 2011 CFL Western All-Stars while Boyd and Whitaker were the All-Star running backs in the Eastern conference. Messam also won the CFL’s Most Outstanding Canadian Award.

Whitaker (1,381) led the league in rushing last season by nearly 250 yards over Boyd, who finished with 1,141 yards. Messam was third with 1,057 yards while Cobourne was fourth with 961 yards and Cornish was fifth with 863 yards.

Boyd also finished second behind Fred Reid (since released by Winnipeg) in 2010, so he’s been consistent. He was a seventh round pick of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of South Carolina in 2008 but he was released on October 17 of that year. He was signed to the Denver Broncos’ practice squad on November 4 but was waived on March 31 of 2009. He signed as a free agent with the Toronto Argonauts on March 12 of 2010 and has been there ever since.
