Betting On CyclingWhile the major sports like football, baseball, and hockey take the front stage here in North America, there is still plenty of opportunities to place a bet on the world of cycling. This is a tough one for casual fans to bet on. You’re looking at a field of about 200 cyclists, so trying to pick a lucky one isn’t going to get you far. What you can do is pick a racer whose strengths align well with the course they’re racing on.

According to, “Like horse racing, there are ‘horses for courses’ when it comes to cyclists. Of course, you have your sprinters like Cavendish and Griepel, the ‘puncheurs’ like Gilbert or Chavanel, climbers like Quintana or Contador and your Time Triallists like Froome and Martin. So the key when trying to have a bet on a cycle race is to try to work out the most likely scenario for the race and the likely key protagonists.” If all that was more French than the Tour De France to you, you’ve got a lot of homework to do.
