After a well earned rest day for the riders Stage 10 of Tour de France 2017 takes place on Tuesday 11th July starting at Périgueux and finishing 178km along the road at Bergerac
Rigoberto Uran edged Warren Barguil for the win on Sunday’s ultra tough stage whilst Froome, Bardet, Aru and Fuglsang came in with that pair. A horror crash ended Richie Porte’s tour, Geraint Thomas was another who crashed out and Arnaud Demare, who was second in the points classification failed to arrive inside the cut off team and was eliminated.
Froome is now trading at around 1 / 3 to win the GC.
Kittel is now trading at around 4/11 to win the Green Jersey with Matthews 9/4.
Dan Martin 23
Barguil is now even money for Polka Dot.
Yates is now trading at around 4/10 to win the Green Jersey
The riders return from the rest day for a flat stage which has two Cat 4 climbs with the intermediate sprint in between at 121km. At 178 km in length it’s shorter than the flat stages we have seen before and given the top of the final climb is around 40km from the finish one would expect it to be a day for the sprinters.
Stage 10 Betting - Winner
Boasson Hagen 13/1
Note, prices are an early show, approx average at the time of writing and are subject to change.
Kittel has 3 stage wins so far, the latest of which was by a whisker from Boasson Hagen. Greipel is under pressure to maintain his record of landing a stage in his grand tour appearances; Kristoff has been pretty consistent as has Matthews and the prices for the likes of Groenewegen and Bouhanni still tempt me.
With no Demare, Cavendish and Sagan and some of the favourites short of a lead out man or two we could see other names in the frame. If you want to take on Kittel its a real roll of the dice, I’ll try again with Kristoff for loose change.
Bets: Kristoff at 9/1
