With Chris Froome being confirmed as one of the riders that will be taking their chances in this year’s Tour de France you are faced with even more betting opportunities, however if you are a fan of cycling you may have already formed your own opinion on who you think will win this event this year.
If it is Chris Froome you are pinning your hopes on then make sure you do not hang around for too long before you place your bets on him, for if as expected he does ride to his very best form then his win odds are going to drop quite dramatically and very quickly too.
Having checked out all of our featured betting site and having taken a look at each of their respective Toru de France betting markets the very best odds I have come cross on Chris Froome winning are 13/8, so do make sure if you do decide to place a bet on him you do not take odds lower than 13/8.
The one question you will have to answer and work out for yourself is whether any of the other riders are going to beat him this year, an if you do think one of them will then keep on reading for the odds currently on offer on the riders that do have a fair chance of beating him this year!
Richie Porte is worth a Punt!
Some punters are looking much further afield as to the likely winner of this event and if you are of the mind that Froome isn’t going to win in then I think that the value bet on the current Toru de France betting markets is Richie Porte who is generally on offer at odds of 4/1.
Nairo Quintana could be worth a punt at 7/1 and Mikel Landa is also one rider some punters do think has what it takes to win a race of this nature at 9/1, two 10/1 shots that you may also fancy betting on are Vincenzo Nibali and Tom Dumoulin, but their 10/1 odds do accurately represent their overall winning chances of course!
Each-Way Betting Value
Let me know finally look at some of the other riders that could tempt you to place an each-way bet on them finishing on one of the top three positions of this race, the first three certainly worth considering are Romain Bardet, Primoz Roglic and Adam Yates 16/1.
With riders such as Geraint Thomas and Jakob Fuglsang are probably not on your radar, keep in mind they are good cyclists and this ride is within their scope and with odds of 20/1 about either of them winning then they do have an each-way chance of filling one of the top positions for sure.
As for the rest of the riders it is hard to see any of them getting placed, however Rigoberto Uran and Alejandro Valverde could just pull a surprise and make it to the top three positions of this race and their odds are 25/1.
