(The Spread) - The first major trade of the NFL offseason has been agreed to, as the San Francisco 49ers have sent veteran quarterback Alex Smith to Kansas City for two draft picks.
According to several online sources including FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the Chiefs acquired Smith from the 49ers in exchange for a second-round draft pick in 2013 and a conditional third-round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft. (The conditional pick could escalate into a second-rounder.) The deal won't become official until the new league year starts on March 12.
Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have released prop odds centered on Smith's play in 2013. For example, Bovada.lv lists the over/under for number of total passing yards that Smith with throw for in the regular season at 3,000. The over/under for number of touchdown passes his 18.5 and the total for interceptions thrown is 10.5.
Bovada.lv also released a prop odd for whether or not the Chiefs will now select Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel with the first overall pick in April's draft. The odds for "Yes" are -300 while the odds for "No" are +200. Joeckel is widely considered the safest pick in the entire draft based on his combination of size, athleticism and mobility for the tackle position.
