Bet Tour de France Cycling Odds - Yellow Jersey Cycling Predictions

Tour De France Cycling OddsWhen: July 7 - 29, 2018

Where: Noirmoutier-en-l’île / Paris

Defending Champion: Chris Froome

As the clock ticks down to the start of the second grand tour of the season, the 3,351 kilometre or 2,082 miles race from Noirmoutier-en-l’île to Paris.

The Tour De France is a world famous bike race that lasts for three weeks and involves more than 2,100 miles, so there are always plenty of opportunities for betting along the way - whether ante-post betting or in-running betting. The race itself is broken up into stages and you can bet on the winner of each stage, with the winner of a stage given the 'yellow jersey'.

This year, the TDF will run from Saturday July 7th to Sunday July 29th, the 105th Tour de France is made up of 21 stages and teams will start with eight riders, one fewer than in previous years, following a rule change introduced by the International Cycling Union.

The Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana are considered the Triple Crown of cycling. Only two riders in history have won the Triple Crown, Eddy Merckx in 1974 and Stephen Roche in 1987.

Who are the favourites to win the 2018 Tour de France?

Which riders will shine bright this season and who could potentially fall by the wayside. The race is 21 days long and, as we’ve seen countless times before, anything can happen. There are crashes, meltdowns and heroic efforts that can turn the race upside down. In other words, anything can happen with the Tour de France, and guessing who will make the podium in Paris is never easy.

Good thing for you, our top handicappers have provided some insight and a preview on this years 2018 Tour de France.

Preview: Since the disgraced Lance Armstrong had his seven consecutive titles removed the sport has been more about court rooms and law enforcement than actual action on the courses. In fact, since Armstrong’s first stripped title of 1999 there have been a total of nine erased championships. Floyd Landis and Alberto Contador joined Armstrong in the Hall of Infamy and Dishonor. But now there is a new candidate for humiliation and out casting. Chris Froome is the defending champion that has four Tour de France titles including three in a row. But now he is in the headlines for all of the wrong reasons. And until his likely presence is confirmed oddsmakers have nothing posted on the board. Continue

Tour De France Yellow Jersey Facts

Bet Tour De France Cycling linesThe maillot jaune (yellow jersey), which is worn by the general classification or (overall time) leader, is the most prized. It is awarded by calculating the total combined race time up to that point for each rider. The rider with the lowest total time is the leader, and at the end of the event is declared the overall winner of the Tour.

As of 2005, the first 3 places to finish are awarded bonuses of 20, 12, and 8 seconds respectively, while the first 3 places at intermediate sprints are awarded 6, 4, and 2 seconds. However, these bonuses are rarely significant enough to cause major upset in the classement géneral (General Classification).

Sometimes a rider takes the overall lead during a stage and gets sufficiently far ahead of the yellow jersey wearer his current lead is greater than his time deficit to the yellow jersey in the general classification, when this happens, this rider may be referred to as being "the yellow jersey on the road". Obviously, no jerseys can be exchanged in this situation, which is why in some other languages the leading rider is referred to as the "virtual yellow".
