There’s no Dumoulin or Froome but the Tour de France 2019 odds on Geraint Thomas at Unibet, one of the best online betting sites in France these days, demonstrate just what a dramatic race this has been so far. Stage 10 should have been a quiet run into the rest day but courtesy of some crosswinds, and a sprinkle of that chaos we’ve come to expect, the Welshman came out the big winner. He remains firm favorite to wear that famed yellow jersey when they arrive in Paris.

It’s just a positioning error from them and they’ve lost over a minute and a half.” Said the man in second place overall as he picked up time on his rivals. What should have been a quiet stage 10 became one of the most dramatic so far and Thibaut Pinot, Rigoberto Uran and Jakob Fuglsang all lost time, and the Tour de France odds on Geraint Thomas reflect that slide. He’s now garnering around 4/7 which is far in advance of the 14/1 they’re doling out on Julian Alaphilippe.

Alaphilippe might be wearing the yellow jersey now but it’ll be a different story in Paris. The Tour de France odds on Geraint Thomas just a measure of how sure everyone is he’ll overtake the Frenchman, possibly in the next few stages. It’s a sprinters paradise to Toulouse, but the mountains take over and, just briefly, all those who like to bet on sports in France will turn to the King Of The Mountains competition where things are about to heat up in a big way for a bit.

Mountains Loom Ahead Of The Peloton

 The Col de Peyresourde and Hourquetted’Ancizan loom ahead with the Col du Soulor and agonizing Tourmalet behind them. This is no easy amble around the Pyrenees and whilst the overall leader might be decided at the Individual Time Trial in Pau, Alaphilippe will be looking to get that polka dot jersey. He’s 7/2 at Unibet to do just that, with Barguil at 7/1 and De Gendt at a better 5/1, actually a nicer wager than those Tour de France 2019 odds on Geraint Thomas.

Tour De France Odds

  • Richie Porte – 50/1
  • JakobFuglsang – 33/1
  • Adam Yates – 22/1
  • Steven Kruijswijk – 20/1
  • Enric Mas Nicolau – 18/1
  • Thibaut Pinot – 15/1
  • Julian Alaphilippe – 14/1
  • Nairo Quintana – 12/1
  • Egan Bernal – 7/2
  • Geraint Thomas – 4/7

Ciccone is 7/1 to make the mountains his domain, with TimWellens down at 9/1 despite a good showing so far. Naturally, after their issues on Stage 10 Thibaut Pinot and Mikel Landa (who ended up in sprawled in a crowd of spectators) are well down in the King of the Mountains stakes, Pinot gets just 20/1 and Landa has slid out to 12/1. Their woes make the Tour de France 2019 odds on Geraint Thomas the best reason to take advantage of French gambling laws.

Tour de France 2019 Odds On Geraint Thomas 4/7 At Unibet

 Yes, yes, it would be nice if Alaphilippe could keep himself out the front and ride to a win in Paris, but it won’t happen. He’s at 14/1 to win and wouldn’t be wearing that jersey now if that last stage before Albi hadn’t been quite so chaotic. The Tour de France 2019 odds on Geraint Thomas, remember, are bolstered by just how together INEOS are, and their proven track record of getting their man to the right place at the right time to take full advantage of their position.

King Of The Mountains Odds

  • Dylan Teuns – 33/1
  • Nairo Quintana – 33/1
  • RomainBardet – 33/1
  • TiesjBenoot – 28/1
  • XandroMeurisse – 25/1
  • Thibaut Pinot – 20/1
  • Mikel Landa – 12/1
  • Tim Wellens – 9/1
  • Vincenzo Nibali – 7/1
  • Giulio Ciccone – 7/1
  • Warren Barguil – 7/1
  • Thomas De Gendt – 5/1
  • Julian Alaphilippe – 7/2

It is something other teams made a mess of on stage 10. There may be some individual riders who, from a cold start, could overhaul Thomas, the Tour de France odds on Geraint Thomas remain so low, and keep getting lower, because INEOS are the complete package. That makes him to the one to back if you hit up Unibet, one of the best online sportsbook sites in France, and want to pick an overall winner. And for the King Of The Mountains? Keep an eye on De Gendt.
