The 2015 Tour de France will bring about a variety of top-rated cyclists from all parts of the world. Here is a look at the cyclists who have the best odds to win the event. This is particularly highlighted by four particular competitors.
Chris Froome – 7-4
Chris Froome, the winner of the 2013 event, is the odds-on favorite to win the event. He is hoping to have a much better Tour de France than last year when he dropped out midway through the event. He struggled to try and catch up and kept on falling throughout the event’s route.
Nairo Quintana – 9-4
Nairo Quintana is known for being a prominent climber and has excelled in mountain stages in many of the cycling events he has competed in. He won the mountains classification in the 2013 Tour and won last year’s Giro d’Italia. He has 9-4 gambling odds to win the Tour this year; he did not compete in last year’s but he did finish in second place in the 2013 edition.
Alberto Contador – 3-1
Alberto Contador won the 2007 and 2009 Tours plus three Vuelta a Espana events. He also won the Giro d’Italia earlier this year. He has engaged in doping in the past; he lost his 2010 Tour title after being found guilty of doping. Contador is still a possibility to win as he has 3-1 odds to win it all this year.
Vincenzo Nibali – 9-2
The winner of last year’s Tour de France, Vincenzo Nibali has become a big threat in the cycling world in recent time. He has 9-2 cycling betting odds to win the tour this year. He won the Giro d’Italia in 2013 and the Vuelta a Espana in 2010.
Joaquim Rodriguez – 33-1
The top four contenders for the Tour de France are very stacked. However, this leaves many other competitors in the dust. Joaquim Rodriguez is the closest competitor at 33-1 odds. Rodriguez finished in third in 2013 but the next year failed to get in the top fifty. He also withdrew from the Giro d’Italia last year.
