Time to Place Your Futures Bet on the Tour de France

Time to Place Your Futures Bet on the Tour de France 1

With around two months to go until the start of this year’s Tour de France, plenty of punters are currently placing a few long-term bets on the rider or riders they think are going to win that event or finish in one of the top few positions.

If that is a race you may be thinking about betting on, then be aware that bookies like Coral are going to be paying out to three places on each-way bets struck with them and are offering one quarter of the win odds on those bets.

But the rider that has been installed as the favourite to win this race and has been since those Tour de France 2019 betting markets opened and went live is Chris Froome, and you will find it hard to get higher odds than around the 6/4 mark if you do want to back that favourite to win.

Anything could of course happen in any of the 21 stages of the Tour de France, which just in case you are blissfully unaware will be starting on July the 6th, and as such there is always the chance the current second favourite could prove to be too good for Froome and win, and that rider is Geraint Thomas who is certainly a fair bet at odds of 5/2.

Third and Fourth Favourites

The third favourite to win the Tour de France in 2019 is Tom Dumoulin, and he does appear to have been overlooked  by most punters, for he is currently being touted at odds to win that event at odds as high as 6/1, and he must have a decent chance of winning iv everything does go his way.

Richie Porte is pencilled in as the fourth favourite to win, but whether he will or not does remain to be seen, for those of you prepared to back him nice and early you should have no difficulties being rewarded with win odds of around the 8/1 mark at most bookies sites.

Other Riders that Could Land a Surprise

Adam Yates and Primoz Roglic are next in the betting and if you think that they are going to excel in the Tour de France this year and are prepared to back them to do so right now the odds available over at the Coral betting site are worth taking as they are high at  12/1.

It may also be worth considering placing a few little each-way bets here and there for it wouldn’t be too much of a surprise if riders such as Nairo Quintana at 14/1 or Egan Bernal at 16/1 managed to fill one of the top positions at the end of this event.

As for whether the likes of Jakob Fuglsang and Vincenzo Nibali have any chance what do ever of winning, well their odds are 18/1, so I will let you make up your own mind as to whether those odds are worth securing right now, which you may just feel they are by the way.
