Once again, the world’s top cyclists will look to conquer the Tour of Flanders, the first cobbled classic of the year. At this time, the 2021 Tour of Flanders betting odds point to a Wout van Aert victory. Consequently, this will be a hard pill for returning defending champion Mathieu van der Poel.
The Tour of Flanders as part of the 2021 UCI World Tour will be live from 4 April in Antwerp, Belgium. This time around, Mathieu van der Poel will return to the Belgium race to defend his title. However, he’ll need to be mindful of Wout van Aert who currently leads the 2021 Tour of Flanders title race. Let’s see how their Tour of Flanders betting odds stand against the other top 2021 contenders on 22BET Sportsbook:
|Wout van Aert||4.50|
|Mathieu van der Poel||5.00|
The 2021 Tour of Flanders betting odds foresee a much-awaited victory for Wout van Aert
Previously, at the 2020 Tour of Flanders, van Aert was within millimetres of claiming his first Tour of Flanders victory. Without a doubt, the Team Jumbo–Visma cyclist put on a tough display, but ultimately lost to Mathieu van der Poel.
Presently, van Aert finds himself in the best position to challenge defending champion van der Poel for the 2021 title. Currently, van Aert leads the pack of the 2021 competitors with promising 22BET Sportsbook odds of winning the cobbled classic.
Consequently, van Aert could claim his first victory in the race with Tour of Flanders betting odds at 4.50.
Defending champion Mathieu van der Poel returns to conquer Belgiums cobblestone course
Without a doubt, van der Poel won the 2020 Tour of Flanders in the most dramatic, yet entertaining way possible. The Dutch cyclist came out victorious in the nail-biting sprint to the finish line against Team Jumbo-Visma cyclist Wout van Aert.
Now, the Alpecin–Fenix cyclist will be looking to defend his title victory, but perhaps in less tense fashion. However, according to the online sportsbook news in Belgium, Wout van Aert poses a strong threat to his title defending hopes.
2016 champion Peter Sagan looks to mark Tour of Flanders return with a title
Despite missing out on the 2020 Tour of Flanders race, Sagan is among this year’s top contenders on 22BET Sportsbook. This time around, the Bora–Hansgrohe cyclist and 2016 champion will be looking to claim his second Tour of Flanders victory.
Most importantly, Sagan will be hungry for UCI World Tour success after last claiming a race win in 2018. Perhaps, this will give the cyclist enough drive and motivation to claim this year’s Tour of Flanders title.
Fortunately, Peter Sagan has the third-best Tour of Flanders betting odds of achieving this on 22BET Sportsbook at 10.00.
