Tour de France Bets

When it comes to betting on the Tour de France, there are masses of options. You can of course bet on the overall winner as well as winners of individual stages. Here we will have a quick look at some of the most popular Tour de France bets:

Outrights (Yellow Jersey Bet)

This is a bet on which cyclist will win the entire event. This bet can both be placed before the Tour de France begins and at any point during the race while more than one winner is possible.

Top 3

As the name suggests, this is simply a bet on whether a specific rider will finish in the top 3. It is possible to place this type of bet on both the entire race and an individual stage.

Top 10

This is exactly the same principle as the Top 3 bet, except that it applies to the top 10 places. As it is far easier to get right, the odds will be much shorter.

King of the Mountains

A number of jerseys are awarded in the Tour de France. The polka dot jersey goes to the best climber and they are known as King of the Mountains. This is a bet on which rider will receive this jersey.

Fastest Rider

The green jersey is awarded to the cyclist with the best sprint time. This is a bet on which cyclist will receive it.

Best Young Rider

The Tour de France is an excellent opportunity to spot upcoming talent. The white jersey is awarded to the cyclist aged 25 or younger who has the best time in the general classification. This is a bet on which rider will receive it.

Best Time-Trial Finisher

This is a bet on which cyclist will have the shortest aggregate time over all of the time-trial stages.

Head to Head

Head to head betting pairs two cyclists together and requires you to pick which of them will perform better overall. It doesn’t matter how your chosen cyclist performs relative to the rest of the field, all that matters is that they outperform the cyclist that they have been paired with in the market.

Stage Winner

This is a bet on which cyclist will win an individual stage. As mentioned, you may also be able to place bets on cyclists to finish in the top 3 or top 10 for any given stage.

Total Number of Stages Won

This is a bet on the number of stages the overall winner of the Tour de France will win. It is an interesting market as theoretically, the overall winner does not need to win a single bet.
