The in-play betting markets are about to go live at all betting sites on this year’s Tour De France, and as such you are going to have to get a move on if you are thinking of backing any of the favourites to win that event at their current ante post betting odds.
It is Bernal at 2/1 that has been attracting the most support from punters on this annual event, however the is no telling in advance whether he is going to be crowned the top rider, for he does face some stiff competition of course.
The other rider that is available at some rather short odds, which does indicate his chances and just how much cash has already been bet on him is Thomas, and by hunting around you may still be able to get odds of 5/2 on him winning.
Below what I am going to be doing is looking at some of the each-way betting opportunities on this year’s Tour De France, for there are plenty of other riders that have a fair old chance of either winning or at the very least finishing in one of the top few positions on this multi stage race.
Bookies such as BetFred will be giving you the option of backing any rider or riders each-way, and an each-way bet sees you placing an outright winner bet and a place bet on any rider you fancy the chances of.
If your chosen rider wins you get paid out at the full odds on the win part of such a bet and if that rider finishes in the top three positions you will be paid out at one quarter of the win odds too, but two stakes need placing on that bet to cover both of those bets.
Who to Back Each-Way?
If you take out the two favourites, then the odds on the other riders do look appealing and you never know any of them could get placed, and one that I would suggest you watch closely and also have a small bet on to do just that is Fuglsang who is currently being touted at many bookies sites at odds of 5/1.
Next in the betting you have the likes of Yates who at his early current odds do look a value each-way bet to say the least and those odds if you can still secure them are 12/1.
You can of course choose to back any riders that you fancy the chances of and those that are next in the betting and could full any of the few tops positions on the leader board at the end of this year’s Tour De France include the likes of Porte and Quintana both trading at 16/1, Pinot at 18/1 looks a fair bet as does to are the next two riders in the betting that being Bardet and Kruijswijk at 20/1.
