Who doesn't love the summer time? Every single year we get all the best sports events across the summer and this year has been one of those years that want back the following year, having given us the World Cup, Wimbledon and now Le Tour De France. Sports events also means there's a chance to make some money with betting, so let's have a look at some of the Tour De France odds given by Bet365.
The Tour is not full of surprises usually, it is very rarely that a newcomer can come from nowhere and ride for the title. Due to that, bookmakers all agree on that there's two riders that are very close and a total of five riders that can be expected.
Chris Froome is once again the ultimate favourite to win the title, giving 1.90 in odds, while his arch-enemy Alberto Contador seems like the best challenger at odds 2.75. But guys like Vincenzo Nibali, Alejandro Valverde and Andrew Talansky are not riders to leave out in the dark as they have proven over the past years that they are solid riders who can, on a good day, beat everyone in the field.
Outside riders there might be a slight value in betting on, due to the early stages with high danger of crashes, could be guys like Richie Porte at odds 41, Rui Costa at odds 51, Pierre Roland at 301 and Thomas Voeckler at 501.
Final little valuebet for today for our readers is the fact that the first stage this year is not a prologue, but instead a real sprinter stage. Therefore we recommend that you place your money on the fastest man of them all in the field, Mark Cavendish, who always loves to show his name at the early stages. Cavendish gives odds 3.25, but there's also value in Andre Greibel at odds 5.50 or Peter Sagan at odds 7.50.
