On the 21st of March, the 111th page will be inscribed in the history of the famous annual cycling race Milan–San Remo. The classic “La Classicissima” route will remain without any innovations and changes. Therefore, 298 km with six climbs again will make us stand still and wait for the exciting results of the race. 2020 Milan–San Remo betting odds predict the next winner of the race.
After crossing the Passo del Turchino and getting to the Mediterranean coast, the participants will warm up on the three famous short hills Capo Mele, Capo Cervo, and Capo Berta. Towards the end, two decisive hills are waiting for the winner – Cipressa and Poggio di Sanremo. Online gambling sites in Italy are offering their bets on the outcome of this race.
La Classicissma is waiting for the best sprinters
Milan–San Remo (also called La Classicissima) is a classic one-day road racing event held annually in northwestern Italy. First Milan–San Remo went in 1907. Having a distance of 298 km, it is the longest professional one-day race in modern cycling. This is the first major classic race of the season, which is usually held on the third Saturday of March. Also, this race is one of the five cycling monuments.
Being the longest professional one-day race, Milan–San Remo is an unusual test of endurance early in the season. It is often won not by the fastest sprinter, but by the strongest and best-prepared rider with a strong sprint finish. The Cipressa and Poggio have foiled many sprinters who could not stay with the front group. 2020 Milan–San Remo betting odds predict who can fight for the main prize.
2020 Milan–San Remo betting odds consider Viviani and Sagan as Alaphilippe main competitors
The Deceuninck-Quick Step team from Belgium will have several candidates for the victory. First is Julian Alaphilippe who won the 2019 Milan–San Remo. Therefore, he has 6.5 odds for his second victory in a row on the Unibet gambling site. However, Elia Viviani is also a very strong representative of this team. He had several victories this year including ones during the World Tour races. Viviani has 8.0 odds for the victory.
Peter Sagan from the German Bora–Hansgrohe team will also compete for the main prize. Although he has never climbed the highest step of the Milan–San Remo podium, Sagan twice finished second. Moreover, at a total of nine starts in La Classicissima, this Slovac driver finished six times in the top ten. The Unibet gambling site offers 7.0 odds for Sagan to win 2020 Milan–San Remo.
