Tour de France 2019 Betting Odds
The favouritism for the outright winner (yellow jersey) at the 2019 Tour de France is split almost evenly between Welshman Geraint Thomas and Colombia’s Egan Bernal. Both start out at odds of around 3.50.
Also in with a shot is Jakob Fuglsang at 6.50, who leads the Astana team.
The King of the Mountains favourite is Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe, and he is rated a 2.25 chance of finishing with the polka-dot jersey.
The Points Classification market is dominated by 2018 winner Peter Sagan, who is the overwhelming favourite at 1.57. He has won the green jersey in six of the last seven races.
Are there Canadian Riders at the Tour de France?
Michael Woods is the top Canadian cyclist at the 2019 Tour de France, although his role will be to help his team (EF Education First) compete in the team time trials, and also help team leader Rigoberto Uran compete for the yellow jersey. Woods’ best hope is in the King of the Mountain market, where he is priced at 71.00 to win.
Jakob Fuglsang’s Astana teammate Hugo Houle is Canada’s other representative, although like Woods is more of a team member rather than a chance of winning any of the individual honours.

How to Bet on Tour de France 2019
If you’re new to betting, the first step is to check out our guide to sports betting. Once you’ve got a hold of the basics and picked your ideal sportsbook, it’s time to make the most of the betting lines available for the Tour de France in 2019.
Outright Betting – Tour de France 2019
The main outright market is also known as the Tour de France winner market, and here you’ll find a selection of odds for the top riders in world cycling. Simply select the rider that you think is going to win the Tour de France in 2019, place your wager and watch all the action unfold.
For the outright market, you’ll need to look out for the cyclist wearing the yellow jersey. This jersey is worn by the overall leader of the Tour de France. Whoever is wearing the yellow shirt when the event ends is declared the overall winner.
Tour de France Top 10 Finish
In the race for the yellow jersey, there can only be one winner, although you can hedge your bets by selecting your favourite rider in the top ten finish market. While the odds in this market are lower, you’ll have more chance of winning due to the decreased risk involved.
King of the Mountains 2019
Within the Tour de France there are many sub-categories, and the most well known is the King of the Mountains. The cyclist who scores the most points in the mountain stages of the event is rewarded with the white and red polka-dot jersey, and you will find a betting market specific to this category. Different riders excel in different areas of the race, so look out for the best climbers in this market.
Points Classification (Sprinter’s Jersey)
The green jersey is worn by the rider that is leading the field in the other major category, known as points classification. It is also referred to as the sprinter’s jersey, as many of the points on offer are won by winning sections of the tour where a time trial is recorded. Like the King of the Mountains, there are different riders who specialise in this area of cycling.
If you would prefer to make multiple bets on the Tour de France, your best option is to place wagers on each stage. Every day throughout the event (excluding the two rest days) features a different stage, and odds are available for every single one of the 21 stages.
