You may have been betting on each stage of the Tour de France this year, and may have also taken advantage of the early prices offered on the outright winner of that event, either way though today will see Stage 13 that being the Bourg D’Oisans Valence stage of the event being played out on TV channels such as Eurosport and ITV4 too.
As for which rider is likely to win this stage of the race, well, it is a ticket race to call, so much so you are going to find there are currently two joint favourites to win this stage, both of whom are 9/4 to do so, and for reference those riders are Arnaud Demare and Peter Sagan.

But even though there may be a couple of favourites to win a race of this nature, there is nothing stopping any of the other riders coming out on top and winning it, and one that may just do at some much higher odds is Alexander Kristoff 7/1.
Bigger and better valued odds will be available if you do fancy the chances of any other riders taking part in stage 13 of the Tour de France and three that are available at some decent odds at Betfred are John Degenkolb and Edvald Boasson Hagen at odds of 14/1 and Sonny Colbrelli on whom you can secure odds of 16/1 if you don’t hang around over at the Betfred Sportsbook!
Philippe Gilbert Worth an Each-Way Bet!
As far as whom you should be betting on each-way to win stage 13 of the Tour de France, well that is of course anybody’s guess; however I do like the look of Philippe Gilbert’s odds in the early betting markets for you can secure odds of 33/1 on him if you are quick.
One thing worth me pointing out is that you will get one quarter of the win odds when backing any rider each way on the first three placed finishers today when placing an each-way bet at the Betfred sportsbook!
Other Possible Each-Way Bets
There are plenty of other riders who may not win today but sure do stand a very good chance of at the very least finishing in one of the three placed positions, and with that in mind on rider that I am sure will be attracting plenty of money on the early betting markets is Maximiliano Richeze at 25/1!
A few other riders that could be worth placing a small nominal each-way bet of if you are feeling adventurous today include Christophe Laporte, and Magnus Nielsen and their respective odds are both 33/1.
I would shy away from backing any riders with odds worth over 50/1 as there is very little chance they will get placed in Stage 13, however two that are available at 40/1 that may or may not interest you are Nikias Arndt and Greg Van Avermaet, but they will need some luck in riding if either of them are to get placed today!
