Tour De France Winner Odds

Chris Froome is a 13/8 favourite as he bids to win the Tour De France for a fifth time in six years. It will be some effort from the 33-year-old as he bids to win a fourth Grand Tour in a row following last year's French success, his Vuelta victory and his Giro win from earlier this year.

A cloud has been hanging over Froome of late as the UCI only dropped a doping investigation against him earlier this year and he is under huge pressure.

Froome is co-leader of the Sky team nowadays as Geraint Thomas has been in good form and Thomas will enjoy the support of his teammates if anything should happen to Froome. Thomas is 20/1 in the latest General Classification betting, although there are doubts over whether he can produce the goods for three solid weeks.

The same worries surround Richie Porte, who has targeted the Tour De France all year, and the Australian did crash out of this race last year. Porte is available at 19/4.

Meanwhile, Nairo Quintana loves the alpine climbs and is available at 10/1, although he is prone to errors during the course of these longer tours.

Tour De France General Classification Odds - The Bets

Which brings us nicely to our best bet - Vincenzo Nibali. The 33-year-old is continually written off but, unlike many of his rivals, he has the tactical nous and experience to ensure he is a major player when bidding for the fifth Grand Tour victory of his career.

Winner of the 2010 Vuelta, 2014 Tour De France and the Giro D'Italia twice (2013 and 2016), Nibali skipped the Giro in order to focus on the Tour De France this year and it is a strategy that served him well when he emerged victorious in Paris in 2014.

The Italian finished on the podium at both the Vuelta and Giro for his new Bahrain-Merida team in 2017, and he has looked in good touch this year, winning the Milan-San Remo in March. Nibali is our best bet at 12/1 with Boylesports.

Meanwhile, Romain Bardet may be ruing the set-up of the course this year as the time trials will count against a rider who excels on the climbs. Nevertheless, Bardet has been a consistent presence in the top-ten of the General Classification during each of the past four editions of the Tour De France, finishing 6th-9th-2nd-3rd respectively.

Bardet is available at 16/1 (Bet 365) and the Frenchman may also provide interest at 40/1 in the King Of The Mountains bracket (40/1 with Boylesports) as he has finished in the top-six of the mountain classification twice in the last three years.
