Where to Find Tour de France Betting Odds

Ranking as the second most-watched sporting event on live television, behind only the FIFA World Cup, it's little wonder odds on Tour de France betting are available across the globe.

You can find Tour de France odds at the best online betting sites, with betting markets available on a host of outright and in-running scenarios. More and more odds are to be found as the start of the race approaches, and further markets appear each day related to the day's stage.

There will also be updated outright odds on the Tour de France winner betting after the finish of each stage, and updated betting on the other race-long competitions like Points, Climber, Young Rider, and Most Combative Rider.


How to Bet on the Tour de France

There are two things to consider when deciding how to bet on the Tour de France; firstly, remember there's three weeks of racing and odds update daily. Secondly, what Tour de France betting markets are there?

The most popular is always the betting on the overall winner, the man who will pull on the Yellow Jersey at the end of some 3,500km of cycle racing, but if the spread in the Tour de France winner betting odds looks daunting or unrewarding, there are many other markets that represent good value. Let's take a look at some of the options:

Can I Bet In-Running on the Tour de France?

Yes, you can bet in-running on a Tour de France stage. You can also bet on who will win the Tour de France, who will finish Top 3 or Top 10, or who will win the Points, Mountains, Young Rider, and Combativity classifications during the three weeks of racing.

Odds for these bets will be updated daily, during and after each stage, so you don't need to bet on any of the outright markets before the race starts, you could cut out a bit of risk by waiting. However, the downside is that often the best odds are available before the start of the race, particularly for outsiders.

You might use this for your cycling betting strategy if you think one of the favourites, before the race starts, will win whatever classification you're interested in. Maybe their odds are too short for you to bet on at the start, but they get pushed out after he under-performs in a time-trial, for example.
