Biathlon World Cup 2020/21 predictions: who will win?
Bet365 Sportsbook was the first betting site to make predictions about the winner in the men’s race series at the Biathlon World Cup 2020/21. According to it, there are two main favorites to win this season – Johannes Boe and Quentin Fillon Maillet. Both sportsmen lead the best odds at Bet365, while the top-5 looks like the following:
- Johannes Boe – 1.16
- Quentin Fillon Maillet – 7.00
- Emilien Jacquelin – 15.00
- Tarjei Boe – 17.00
- Alexander Loginov – 26.00
As it is clear from the odds, Johannes Boe leads the best odds to win the cup. Previously, Norwegian has won 48 individual prizes and 70 podiums. Currently, he is the third most successful male biathlete at the age of just 27. By online gambling sites in Norway, he is the number one favorite to win the 2021 World Cup race.
Boe’s closest rival, Quentin Fillon Maillet, has 7.00 odds on his victory. French biathlete has been way less successful than his competitor, however, it didn’t hurt him to reach #2 on bookmakers’ list. During his career, the 28-years-old sportsman has got 3 individual victories and reached podiums 27 times.
Emilien Jacquelin closes the top-3 with 15.00 odds. Although this French biathlete is just 25, he is already one of the favorites to win the World Cup. If you believe he can compete with Boe and Maillet, use 15.00 odds to bet on him at Bet365.
