This year will mark the 106th running of the Tour de France, and when it comes to you getting the best possible betting value on the race, which will be being running over 21 stages, starting on Saturday the 6th of July this year, it will be on the early betting markets that most punters will be looking.
Bookies such as Coral have wasted no time in getting their futures betting market live on that race, and if you are interested in placing an outright winner bet or an each-way bet on any of the riders, well there are plenty of them to pick and choose from a you can imagine.
As for the rider that is attracting the most early support, that honour falls on Chris Froome for he is chalked up and has been for quite some time now at win odds of 6/4, and that does give you an idea of just how the bookies feel this race will end.
However, the second favourite has not been without support either and as such Geraint Thomas is the rider that most bookies do feel has a fair chance of winning, and as for the odds available on the Coral Tour de France early betting markets he is available at odds of 5/2 right now.
Next Riders in the Betting
Moving onto the other riders that will need some luck in riding to come out on top and win this race include the likes of Tom Dumoulin and looking at his 6/1 outright winner odds currently available he does have a respectable chance to be fair.
Richie Porte is another rider worth keeping an eye on in the betting, for there is always going to be a chance he will win any number of stages of this race and could even go on to win it outright, and by taking a chance on him doing just that right now you can secure odds as high as 8/1.
A Few Others to Consider
I would stick to some small each-way bets if you do fancy backing any of the other riders, for it is going to be more than likely any of those listed above are going to be in the top few finishing positions.
But any rider could spring a surprise and land a surprise top three placing at the end of the Tour de France in 2019 and some to consider doing just that include the 12/1 shots those being Adam Yates and Primoz Roglic.
There are plenty of other riders that are going to have the eyes on a place position, and a few other for you to ponder over include the likes of Nairo Quintana at 14/1 and there is a chance that Egan Bernal at 16/1 could play a major part of this race.
Jakob Fuglsang and Vincenzo Nibali at 18/1 look up against it as does Simon Yates at 22/1 and the only other rider that has any chance of filling one of the top spots if everything does fall his way is Mikel Landa at 25/1.
