Betting on the Tour de France

Cyclists might not be among the best-paid athletes, despite the fact that cycling is one of the most physically demanding and exhausting sports. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t make money on cycling. You can do so by betting on popular cycling events like the Tour de France. Another way to make a lot of money in a short amount of time is to win a jackpot at an online casino. There are many online casinos and if you’re new to the whole thing, it might be slightly difficult for you to determine which casino would be most suitable. Check out this top 10 list if you want to see which casinos are considered to be the best.

Froome Is Considered Favourite

Tour de France 2016 is behind us, but it is already possible to place bets on the Tour de France 2017, which will be the 104th Tour de France. It is not surprising that this year’s winner, who has won Tour de France three times so far, Brit Chris Froome is considered favourite for the next year’s race. Since there’s a lot of time before the next Tour de France, the odds offered by different bookies vary significantly. You may find odds at 4/6, 8/11, 5/6, but the highest odds are almost evens 20/21. With so many cyclists and odds lower than 1/1, it is clear that Froome is an absolute favourite.



Contador, Porte and Quintana also Stand a Chance

If you think that some other cyclist might cause an upset and claim the trophy next year, then you might earn quite a hefty amount of money, provided that someone other than Froome manages to win the race. Nairo Quintana is rated second and the odds on him vary from 7/2 up to 5/1. The odds are even higher on Richie Porte and you can get odds at 10/1 if you think that the Australian has a fair chance of winning next year’s Tour de France. Alberto Contador is next with odds at 10/1 with most bookies, although if you ‘shop’ for the best quote, you will find that some bookies offer odds as high as 14/1.

High Odds on Bardet and Yates

The other cyclists generally have quite slim chances of winning, or at least that is what the bookmakers think. The odds for Fabio Aru vary and while some bookies offer odds at 14/1, others think that the actual chances of him winning are a bit higher at 20/1 or even 22/1. The same odds are offered on this year’s runner-up Romain Bardet. Adam Yates who finished 4th and first among the youth cyclists, has pretty low chances of winning according to the popular sports betting operators. Some rate his chances at 18/1 or 20/1, but others offer odds as high as 40/1.

Very High Odds on Total Underdogs

Generally speaking, a lower a cyclist is rated, the bigger the differences between the offered odds by different bookmakers. The odds for Warren Barguil, for example, vary from 125/1 up to 400/1. For Michele Scarponi, you will find odds starting at 150/1 and up to as high as 750/1.

Betting on Vuelta a España 2016

It is possible to bet on other cycling events that take place throughout the year. Vuelta a España is ahead of us and Alberto Contador and Chris Froome are considered favourites. The best odds for Contador to win are at 5/2, whereas you could get 3/1 odds on Froome. Nairo Quintana follows with odds at 4/1, then Esteban Chaves at odds that may vary from 5/1 up to 9/1. The odds for each of the other cyclists is below 10/1.
