Betting on the Tour de France

The 2013 Tour de France will be even more special than usual. This year will be the hundredth time that event has been staged, and the eyes of the world will be watching it.

A hot tip at the moment is Bradley Wiggins who was the winner in 2012. Sometimes it pays to swim against the tide and at the moment the tide seems to be going out on Wiggins. A few months ago the bookmakers were offering around 2/1 that he would win the Tour de France, and today that price has been extended up to as long as 16/1.
