2021 Paris-Roubaix betting predictions
Let’s race!

Wout van Aert looks to bounce back after disastrous 2019 Hell of North trip 

Undoubtedly, van Aert will look to put his unimpressive 2020 Paris-Roubaix performance behind him by winning this year’s title. All in all, his 2020 campaign was a day in hell consisting of a crash and two material breakdowns. 

Furthermore, the Team Jumbo–Visma cyclist will also go in search of his first Paris-Roubaix victory. According to our 2021 Paris-Roubaix betting predictions, the Belgian cyclist stands a promising chance to achieve this on Bet365 Sportsbook

Presently, Wout van Aert has the second-highest odds to claim this year’s Paris-Roubaix bragging rights at 4.50.

Julian Alaphilippe looks to capitalize on home advantage 

At this time, the Frenchman is one of the cyclists who have yet to experience Paris-Roubaix’s gruelling course. Now, the Deceuninck–Quick-Stepwill cyclist is hoping for a case of beginners luck as he looks to claim his first Paris-Roubaix win. 

Undoubtedly, our 2021 Paris-Roubaix betting predictions say his 2020 UCI Road World Championship title could win brownie points with bettors. Furthermore, Julian Alaphilipe also has the added advantage of cycling on home turf. 

In addition, to the third-best Bet365 Sportsbook odds at 6.50, Alaphilipe poses as a promising 2021 title contender

2018 champion Peter Sagan returns hungry for more Paris-Roubaix success 

Without a doubt, the Slovak is one of the cyclists who are all too familiar with Paris-Roubaix’s gruelling course. After eight total attempts, the Bora–Hansgrohe cyclist finally conquered the Hell of North in 2018. 

Now, Sagan is among the 2021 competitors with promising online sportsbooks in France odds of winning the UCI World Tour race. Furthermore, the promising Bet365 Sportsbook hopeful will be looking to upset defending champion Philippe Gilbert to claim a second Paris-Roubaix title. 

According to our 2021 Paris-Roubaix betting predictions, Sagan (12.00) could potentially mark his ninth race appearance with a win.
