The Tour de France is cycling’s biggest event and is famous around the world for its gruelling setting, with tough stages and beautiful scenery in great supply.
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, including in US sportsbooks in state’s where sports betting is legalized.
You can ﬁnd Tour de France odds at all the NJ sports betting sites and PA sports betting sites, with betting markets available on a host of outright 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.
There are two things to consider when deciding how to bet on the Tour de France; ﬁrst, remember there's three weeks of racing and odds update daily. Second, 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 2,200 miles 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:
Tour de France Odds Markets:
At the moment, no you cannot make any in-play bets on a Tour de France stage (nor is any exchange betting available). But you can 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 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 favorites, 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.
To judge whether such odds are worth a bet, here are some pointers to inform your Tour de France betting. The ﬁrst, though, is: Remember there are 21 stages. You need a good betting strategy to make the most of the Tour de France odds!
