Make no mistake about it, now that Chris Froome is going to be riding and taking part in this year’s Tour de France, the number of people that are going to be backing him to win that event will start to grow, so much so his win odds are going to start to drop sooner rather than later.
The best odds I have so far being offered to anybody wishing to back him to win the Tour de France at our featured betting sites are 13/8, so if you are a big fan of him or simply cannot see any of the other riders beating him then get your bets placed right now would be my advice!
There is the chance of course that he may not win, and below you are going to find the odds associated with some of the other riders that do probably have the very best chances of beating him.
However, keep in mind that Chris Froome is likely to be riding like a man possessed in this event, after all that has been happening to him recently, and it would surprise no one if he does win this event and wins it is style, but it is of course up to you as to who you do back to win it!
Richie Porte and Nairo Quintana
There are two riders that are attracing more than their fair share of wagers on and they are Richie Porte at 4/1 and Nairo Quintana who is on offer at odds of 7/1 both of whom could win.
If you want value rather that the ultimate winning chance then it may pay to bet on riders such as Mikel Landa at 9/1, but do also consider betting on Vincenzo Nibali and Tom Dumoulin for they do have an outside chance but not as low a chance as some other riders and they are both available at odds of 10/1.
Romain Bardet an Each-Way Chance!
As far as the riders that are going to be worth betting on as each-way possibilities you should be looking at Romain Bardet who is in with a chance of filling one of the top spots at 16/1.
Primoz Roglic is another 16/1 as is Adam Yates, but do keep in mind that those odds do give you an indication of their chances of either winning or getting placed in this event.
I wouldn’t look much further in the betting markets but do consider an each-way bet on the likes of Geraint Thomas and/or Jakob Fuglsang for their 20/1 odds do look value bets, and if you want to place a few risky bets then it could be worth betting on the likes of Rigoberto Uran and Alejandro Valverde who do have high odds attached to them and for reference those odds are 25/1 at most netting sites.
You can of course also lay bets on the rider you think will lose, and obviously there can only be one winner, and to lay such bets you will need to make use of the betting exchange at Betfair!
