Live Betting: Tour de France Stage 5Published July 3, 2013 by OCR Editor
Tour heads from Cagnes-Sur-Mer to Marseille in 228.5km flat stage today.
The Tour de France heads into day five today, and the question on everyone's lips is how to stop the Aussies? Australian team Orice-Greenedge rode the fastest ever team-trial in a grand tour in Nice yesterday, and the win was enough to put team member Simon Gerrans in the yellow jersey for the first time in this Tour.
Every day is a new day in the Tour, and this afternoon the cyclists will set out for the most grueling stage yet - the 228.5 km (142 mi) flat stage along the Mediterranean coast from Cagnes-Sur-Mer to Marseille. Cagnes-Sur-Mer becomes one of 10 towns or cities hosting a stage for the first time this year.
The yellow jersey has been worn by three different riders in the first four days of the 2013 Tour - Marcel Kittel, Jan Bakelants and Gerrans - suggesting that this year will be more competitive than ever. Last year the jersey changed hands between just two riders throughout the entire month - eventual winner Bradley Wiggins and rival Fabian Cancellara.
With that in mind, bet365 Sports offers the following odds on Stage 5 Winner: Andre Greipel, 11/4, Mark Cavendish, 3/1, Peter Sagan, 17/4, Marcel Kittel, 13/1, Aleksander Kristoff, 20/1, Matthew Goss, 22/1, Sylvain Chavanel, 25/1, John Degenkolb, 28/1, Gerrans and four other riders on 33/1, and the rest on 40/1 and over.
Bet365 is accepting wagers on Stage 5 match-ups plus 13 tournament-long categories including: Outright Winner, Points Classification, King of the Mountains, Podium Finish, Top 10 Finish, Team Classification and Number of Finishers.
