It isn’t going to take you very long at all to find a bookie that is offering a futures betting markets on the 2019 Tour de France, for having checked out several such sites this morning I did notice the ones I checked out did have their own unique set of odds on offer on all riders taking part in that race.
With over eight weeks left until the very first stage of that race starts, there is plenty of time for you to try and make sense of the odds being offered to you and trying to work out just which rider is going to have a fair chance of winning, or getting placed, as most bookies are offering each-way bets on that race.
For reference the standard each-way betting terms you are going to find being offered to you at this very early stage of the 2019 Tour de France betting are one quarter of the odds being paid out to three places, so if you are thinking about placing an each-way bet then try and bag better terms than those!
There are two riders who are heading he betting markets and those are Chris Froome is has been the rock-solid favourite to win this race for quite some time at odds of 6/4, followed not that far away by Geraint Thomas who is a fair bet currently at his generally available outright winner odds of 5/2!
Tom Dumoulin and Richie Porte
It could of course be the case that both the first and second favourites on the futures betting markets do not end up winning this event, and for those of you prepared to take a chance that will be the case then it will be one of the next two riders in the betting you should be backing right now.
One rider that has shown previous form good enough to win this event is of course the highly talented Tom Dumoulin who is the third favourite at 6/1 to win, and next in the betting it is Richie Porte who does look at solid each-way bet at the very least at his current win odds of 8/1.
Other Riders in with a Slight Chance of Winner
You may end up sticking a pin into the list of other riders if you are trying to pick out one that could go on to win or at the very least get placed and fancy having an each-way bet on then, for there are so many other riders it will take you quite some time to work out which ones if any to back.
There could be a case to be made for riders like Adam Yates and Primoz Roglic at 12/1 and then again it could be the case that riders such as Nairo Quintana at 14/1 or Egan Bernal at 16/1 will have a high enough improvement in their respective form to help them achieve a high placed position in this event. Two other riders with some type of chance are Jakob Fuglsang and Vincenzo Nibali at 18/1.
