Tour de France 2024 Betting Favourites
Tadej Pogačar after winning stage 20 - Tour de France 2023

Well the betting odds for the 2024 Tour de France dropped a few days ago, and while we highly don't recommend locking your money up for a year and letting it get ravaged by inflation we feel we should at least talk about them.

They're expecting Vingegaard to show up, but it's still debatable that he will, and he might instead try the Giro for a change. Gall at 41.00 is short in our opinion. Yes he might very well transition over the winter, build an incredible TT, and perform remarkably as a GC rider, but he still has the "recency" effect of being good. We'd wait for a race or event where he performs poorly at to take advantage of that good ol' adage - buy low, sell high.

When it comes to riders, almost never buy in if the rider is "hot" after recent stellar performances. Even Gall. Who we have a soft spot for.

We could see a Derek Gee (751.00) transition from being a strong rouleur rider to an impressive GC contender (but if you really pressed us - we think he'll stay as a strong stage hunter). But even at those odds, it's still too far out for us to place any money down. We'll save any bets until at least January when the transfer market and off season has calmed down. The course profile of the Tour will also be out by then.

Finally, it's interesting they don't have certain riders like a Magnus Sheffield, who may very well translate into having a breakout 2024 in terms of general classification performances.
