Tour De France Odds
Adam Yates took the yellow jersey at the Tour de France yesterday after Julian Alaphilippe was given a 20-second penalty on stage five. Alaphilippe now finds himself sitting in 16th position overall after being penalised for taking a bottle from a team support member inside the final 20km.
Adam Yates who finished fourth in the 2016 Tour de France leads the way by three seconds over the short-priced betting favorite Primoz Roglic.
Primoz Roglic was expected to win this year’s Tour de France, his odds (+225) before the race implied he had a 31% chance of doing so. Online bookmakers are confident he’s positioned perfect on the leaderboard, as his Tour De France odds now stand at -106, which implies he’s got a 51.5% chance of winning.
Adam Yates’ Tour de France campaign has come as quite the surprise for online sports betting sites. The English man was a massive +12500 before this year’s competition, which implied he only had a 0.8% chance of being victorious. Yate’s Tour de France odds have been cut to +3000, but even so, this still implies he only has a 3.2% chance of winning.
Despite Adam Yates being given little chance by bookmakers, online bettors have rushed to back the Englishman. In the last twenty-four hours, he’s accounted for 17% of all bets placed in the Tour de France winners market. Primoz Roglic closely follows him, he’s accounted for 16% of bets.
Primoz Roglic is the favorite to win Stage 6 of the Tour de France, he tops the betting market at +350. Julian Alaphilippe is expected to bounce back from his blunder, he’s the second favorite to win stage 6 at +900.
