2015 Tour De France Betting Update
The 2015 Tour De France has already seen plenty of exciting action and we are yet to even reach a mountain stage.
Rohan Dennis got Le Tour off to a very promising start for Australia when he won the 13.8 kilometer Time Trial in the opening stage at Utrecht on Saturday night, but he lost the Yellow Jersey 24 hours later when Fabian Cancellara was part of the lead group that didn’t include the Aussie.
Outright Tour De France favourite claimed the Yellow Jersey for the first time in 2015 when he made up time on all of his main rivals in the General Classification in Stage Three – a stage that was marred by a massive crash that led to the race being neutralized.
The Yellow Jersey changed hands again overnight when Tony Martin snuck away from the leading group in the final moments of the stage from Seraing to Cambrai and he should be able to retain the lead tonight in a stage that is suited to sprinters.
Another fairly flat stage that could be suited by a breakaway group faces the peloton on Thursday night and the sprinters will have another chance on Friday night before they face a tough final climb on Saturday ahead of the always exciting Team Time Trial on Sunday.
We are currently offering an outstanding 2015 Tour De France promotion that is available on every stage apart from the Team Time Trial. Place a bet in any Tour De France stage winner market and if an Australian wins that stage, you’ll get your CASH BACK.
Christopher Froome currently sits 12 seconds behind Tony Martin and remains a dominant favourite to win his second Tour De France and he is currently available at a quote of $1.80.
Colombian Nairo Quintana has not had the best start to the 2015 Tour De France and currently sits over two minutes behind Froome, but he will be in his element when the race reaches the mountains and we have him sitting on the second line of betting at a quote of $3.50.
Nobody has won the Tour De France or the Giro d’Italia in the same year since Marco Pantani claimed both titles in 1998, but Alberto Contador still has the chance to make history in the Tour De France this year.
Contador sits inside the top ten and is only 48 seconds behind Martin in the General Classification, so he could represent great value at his current quote of $8.
The only other real contender in the 2015 Tour De France is last year’s winner Vincenzo Nibali, but he has already lost almost two minutes in the early stages of the race and there are question marks over his form as we head towards the key stages of the race.
