You may find it rather strange that quite a number of online sportsbooks have already got a betting market up and running or the Tour de France in 2019, for it was only the other day that the 2018 running of that race finished.
However, many punters do like the fact that they can be well in advance of that major cycling tournament starting, and it is often the case that the odds they can and will be able to secure on the early betting markets are often way higher than they will be as the starting day of the race approaches.
Therefore, today I will be giving you an insight into the early process that are available on some of the much more fancied riders to win the Tour de France in 2019, and one rider that most punters and betting site odds compiler think is going to win that event is Geraint Thomas at 2/1!
However there are two other riders that will have their sights firmly set on winning next year and they are Chris Froome at 9/4 and also Tom Dumoulin at 5/2, so do consider backing one of those three riders as those odds are value packed currently!
Three Places Paid on Each-Way Bets
As some of our featured sportsbooks are giving you the option of betting each-way also on their early betting markets and will in addition offer one quarter of the outright win odds on the riders that do manage to fill the top three places on the Tour de France in 2019, perhaps an each-way bet is the order of the day?
It will be worth checking out riders such as Primoz Roglic at 9/2, Richie Porte at 8/1 and Vincenzo Nibali at 20/1 and also possibly having a small each-way bet on Nairo Quintana at 25/1 or Miguel Angel Lopez at 25/1 too.
Riders with an Outside Chance of Winning
By betting nice and early there are going to be plenty of riders on offer at some much more appealing odds than those I have showcased to you above, and one rider whose odds are certainly appealing currently is Mikel Landa at 28/1.
Egan Arley Bernal and Simon Yates at 33/1 are also two riders worth a speculative punt too but I would also throw into the caution riders such as Rigoberto Uran, Romain Bardet and Fabio Aru at 40/1, any of whom may come out on top and win next year or at the very least finish in one of the top three positions.
Throwing caution to the wind and betting on some riders with even bigger odds will see you being best advised to consider backing Steven Kruijswijk and Thibaut Pinot at 66/1 at this very early stage of the betting, but if you want to go for gold and back riders with some even higher odds attached to them, then it will be riders such as Adam Yates, Adam and Daniel Martin at 80/1 who may be worth backing right now!
