Betting tips on the Tour de France

Run from June 29 through till July 21 the 100th Tour de France gets underway in Corsica where the first three stages will be held. In total there are 21 stages, so there is no shortage of betting opportunities.

Although it is a little early to make bets on the individual stages you can if you wish to, but stage betting really doesn’t get going until the start of the event and the odds can fluctuate wildly on a day by day basis. If you wish to bet at this stage, then you are advised to try to predict the outright winners.

Up until very recently the three riders who seemed to be heading for victory were Alberto Contador, Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins, however it is now looking progressively more like a two horse race as the odds on Bradley Wiggins are lengthening.

He unfortunately had to abandon the Giro d’Italia claiming ill health, and although he claims that he is now focussing on the Tour de France he chances of winning it seem to be diminishing. His price has increased from 2/1 to up to 16/1, whilst the odds on Chris Froome the favourite are 7/5 and on the second favourite Alberto Contador they are 11/5.

While you are working out what to bet on the Tour De France, you might care to click over to a casino for some Tour De France betting of a different kind. The latest hot cycling slot is Pedal Power by Microgaming and it is certainly a slot with plenty of power.

There are many interesting features, though the most exciting is the free spin bonus. This is triggered by spinning three scatter symbols (stopwatches) and it is possible to win a maximum jackpot prize of £40,000. You will need a fair amount of luck to do so, but it could be your lucky day; you won’t know until you give it a go.
