Boldin, Harvin trades forces oddsmakers to reconsider NFL futures

Marquee wide receivers Percy Harvin and Anquan Boldin are on the move, forcing oddsmakers to reconsider their NFL futures odds.

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to trade Harvin to the Seattle Seahawks for undisclosed draft picks, as first reported by Fox Sports.

The deal is contingent on Harvin passing a physical.

The Seahawks are currently 8/1 to win the 2014 Super Bowl at the LVH and have 4/1 odds to clinch the NFC.

CarbonSports.ag told Covers it won’t be moving its Seattle Super Bowl futures off 8/1.

"Harvin is good, but not a real game changer in my opinion," says oddsmaker Michael Stewart. "He's no Megatron and he needs to prove his health as well. Injuries are a real concern with him."

Harvin, who is entering the final year of his rookie contract, badly sprained his left ankle on Nov. 4 at Seattle last season and didn't play again. He still led the team in receptions (62) and receiving yards (677) despite only playing half a season.

Harvin has previously worked with Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell, who coached him in Minnesota during his rookie season.

Harvin wasn’t the only big-name receiver on the move Monday.

The Baltimore Ravens agreed to trade Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a 2013 sixth-round pick, according to NFL Network’s Albert Breer.

The Ravens wanted Boldin to accept a $2 million reduction in pay for the 2013 season, but he was adamant about playing out his current contract.

The trade will not be official until Boldin, who is currently on an African mission, passes a physical.

The Niners are currently 5/1 to win the 2014 Super Bowl at the LVH and have 7/2 odds to clinch the NFC.

CarbonSports.ag opened San Francisco’s futures at 7/1 and moved them to 13/2 after hearing news of the trade.

Boldin, 32, is a three-time Pro Bowler and caught 22 postseason passes for 380 yards with four touchdowns, including six catches for 104 yards and a score in the Super Bowl.
