With its 21 stages, and 2,150 miles circuit, the Tour de France is one of the most formidable cycling races held anywhere in the world, and this year is going to mark the 106th edition of that race and is going to be run from the 6th of July right through until the 28th of July 2019.
Even though that race is going to take some riding, there are two riders that have been right at the top of the early betting markets for that race since those betting markets when live, and as such based on that fact and the value of money already placed on them both, it does appear that one of them is going to win.
As for whether it will be the first or second favourite that does come out on top and win the 2019 Tour de France we will have to wait and see, however for reference if you do fancy placing an early bet on them they are Chris Froome the 6/4 current favourite and Geraint Thomas who is the 5/2 second favourite to win.
With those two riders being available at rather skinny odds, you may be much more inclined to back one of the other riders each-way, and if you are try and ensure that you are getting the best each-way betting terms, such as the one quarter the win odds to three places that Coral are offering.
Consider Backing One of the Other Riders
With such a huge distance to over and plenty of stages too, the Toru de France is no easy race to win, and it could be the case that this year both of the top two riders in the betting make a complete hash of it and do not win or get placed either.
That does leave the door wide open for riders such as Tom Dumoulin and he has to be an excellent bet at his current win odds of 6/1, and the same could also be said for Richie Porte who has to be another rock-solid bet, but probably an each-way bet at 8/1.
Other Riders Attracting Some Support
The only real value to be found in the Toru de France early betting markets are going to be when you take the odds on some of the slightly lesser fancied riders, and two that spring to mind are Adam Yates and Primoz Roglic at 12/1.
You should never overlook the obvious chances of riders such as Nairo Quintana at 14/1 or Egan Bernal at 16/1 for it isn’t going to take too much of an improvement in their form to play a major part in this cycling event and either of them could get placed.
As for any other riders that may just, if everything does go their way, manage to bag one of the top three positions in this event, well several spring to mind to be fair including the likes of Jakob Fuglsang and Vincenzo Nibali at 18/1, Simon Yates at 22/1 and also Mikel Landa at 25/1.
