Often the Tour de France is done and dusted well before we get to this stage, a rider so far ahead he can cruise his way into Paris. Not this year. With barely a couple of competitive stages left there’s still several riders still in contention and, if you hit up Unibet, one of the best online betting sites in France today, you can take this last opportunity to bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France. You know the Frenchman is hungry for the Champs de Elysee, but can he really win?
Let’s be clear, Alaphilippe is still over a minute and a half ahead of even the Team Ineos boys. So whilst you can still bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France, do be aware he’s a minute and fifty seconds adrift with only two really competitive stages in which to make up the difference on the current leader, fellow Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe. Alaphilippe has defied his superb reputation as a one-day wonder this tour and beating him is going to be exceedingly difficult for anyone.
His strategic winning of the King of the Mountains jersey in the Tour last year should have tipped people off, but quite honestly there is still some surprise about his having the legs for this day-in-day out. That’s why you can find 3/1 for your bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France and just 7/2 on a similar wager featuring Julian Alaphilippe. He may well have given too much already to make taking advantage of French gambling laws to back him in the two final alpine stages sane.
Leading Frenchman Alaphilippe Only 7/2 To Take Win
It’s one thing to pick your stage wins, another to keep it up when you’ve already ridden around France and that’s why the young guns like Egan Bernal are featuring prominently in the markets being offered up by the bookies like Unibet. If you eschew that bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France you’ll find you can get 4/9 on the Colombian to spoil France’s day, and indeed the Great British hope Geraint Thomas is still in the mix despite having come a cropper amid the craziness.

Thomas gets a rather precise 31/20 at Unibet, and that’s probably just as good a bet on sports in France as that bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France this weekend. Even Steven Kruijswijk (the well-known Dutch cyclist and spelling error) is still in with a slim chance this close to the end getting a very complimentary 7/5 from the bookies. This says all you need to know about how hard these two final climbs are going to be contested, and how easily they can destroy dreams.

Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Tignes is only a touch over 126km, but includes the devastatingly harsh Col de l’Iseran, highest point on the tour, and the final climb, the Montee de Tignes, is a seven and half kilometer nightmare after such a challenging day. Alaphilippe might be leader right now but looking at these climbs that bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France is looking better and better, and that’s even before we’ve taken a look at the stage 20 they face on the weekend.
2019 Tour De France Winner
- Mikel Landa – 40/1
- Nairo Quintana – 18/1

Riding up the Val Thorens for thirty three kilometers is no picnic, especially not if your legs have only just recovered from riding the Cormet de Roselend which is shorter, but steeper. It is more than likely to be this stage, rather than any other, which will decide if that bet on Pinot to win the Tour de France was a good idea or not. So this is it, it really is your last chance to get a wager on who’ll be winner in Paris at Unibet, one of the best online sportsbook sites in France right now.
