Currently, our Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting preview have labelled Primož Roglič and Tom Dumoulin as top contenders. However, can we expect any surprise wins from underdogs Chris Froome and Ivan Ramiro Sosa?

- Primož Roglič 3.00
- Tom Dumoulin 4.50
- Chris Froome 21.00
- Ivan Ramiro Sosa 26.00
Our Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting predictions foresee a Grand Tour win for Primož Roglič
Currently, Slovenian cyclist, Primož Roglič stands the best chance of winning 2020 Vuelta a Espana on Bet365 Sportsbook. Last year, Roglič claimed the 2019 Vuelta a Espana win which was also his first Grand Tour win.
Fortunately, he stands a good chance to defend his title with Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting odds at 3.00. Furthermore, the 2020 Vuelta a Espana frontrunner also has a good competitive record to back up his winning chances.
In terms of the Grand Tour, this includes a fourth-place finish at the 2018 Tour de France. Additionally, he also recorded a third-place finish at the 2019 Giro d’Italia. This year, he was the Tour de France runner-up.
Tom Dumoulin could interrupt Primož Roglič’s title defending chances
According to our Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting preview, Tom Dumoulin is the second-favourite hopeful for the Grand Tour title. Unfortunately, the Dutch cyclist has never won the Vuelta a Espana. Furthermore, this year, Tom Dumoulin hasn’t recorded any major wins.
Instead, he only recorded finishes below sixth place at the Tour de France Critérium du Dauphiné and more. Consequently, a Vuelta a Espana will be crucial for the Dutch cyclist. Fortunately, with Bet365 Sportsbook odds at 4.50, this could all change for the better. Additionally, Dumoulin will start the race on the back of one Grand Tour win from the 2017 Giro d’Italia. Furthermore, the Team Jumbo-Visma cyclist also recorded second-place finishes at the 2019 Giro d’Italia and Tour de France.
Chris Froome looks to mark comeback with Vuelta a Espana win
According to the online sportsbook news in Spain, Froome suffered a few injury setbacks in 2019 affecting the rest of his season. Fortunately, early this year, he announced that he would make a comeback and return to competing on the road.
However, as expected, it’s been a slow year for Froome with no wins so far. Furthermore, with the year quickly drawing to a close, Chris Froome will be itching to get his hands on at least one UCI World Tour win.
Unfortunately, with low Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting odds of winning, he’ll likely miss out on the Grand Tour win. Additionally, this means that Froome will miss out on the chance to claim his second Vuelta a Espana win.
Ivan Ramiro Sosa unlikely to mark his Vuelta a Espana debut with a win
This year, Colombian cyclist Ivan Ramiro Sosa will be making his Vuelta a Espana debut with Team Sky. Additionally, the young cyclist will also be recording his second Grand Tour appearance after racing in the 2019 Giro d’Italia.
Unfortunately, Sosa was unable to impress at the Giro d’Italia after recording a 44th place finish in the Italian race. Now, it’s likely that he’ll suffer the same fate when he makes his Vuelta a Espana debut.
Furthermore, Sosa currently has the lowest odds of winning on Bet365 Sportsbook, one of the leading online sportsbooks in Spain. Consequently, our Vuelta a Espana 2020 betting preview has labelled Sosa a risky bet with odds at 26.00.
