The Tour De France is the biggest event in the cycling world, as dozens of the best cyclists from around the world to compete for glory. This year’s event is expected to be one of the most exciting competitions ever, as titans clash and controversy runs rampant.
This year, the big story involves Lance Armstrong and Alberto Contador. These two cyclists are arguably the best cyclists in the world and online sportsbooks predict that the fight for first place will take place between Armstrong and Contador only.
As Armstrong announces that this year’s Tour De France will be the last, spectators are wondering if he will be able to go out on a high note. Currently, BoDog.com is quite cynical about that possibly, as Armstrong’s odds of winning are only 7/1 while Contador has odds of 4/7.
Although there are no online sportsbooks offering odds on who will be caught doping first, it is still a popular topic in the online gambling community. Drugs are always an important issue in the sport of cycling, and the Tour seems to bring out the worst in this particular controversy. However, commentators have stated that there has been a decline in drug use, as Brad Wiggins, a devout non-user, is proof that athletes do not need drugs to make it to the Top 5.
