    Tour de France Betting: Tour de France odds at Diamond sportsbook list Christopher Froome as the favorite to win the 100th Tour de France that begins on Saturday. The race begins in Corsica on Saturday and concludes three weeks later in Paris on July 21st.

    There will be some exciting stages in the next three weeks including the mountain stages in Pyrenees and the Alps and the three time trials.

    Let’s take a look at all of the Tour de France odds available at Diamond sportsbook and preview the race.

    Last year it was Bradley Wiggins and Christopher Froome finishing first and second in the Tour de France as Team Sky dominated the race. This year Wiggins is out due to a knee injury so that means this year’s race is Froome’s to win. The top challenger to Froome is Alberto Contador of Team Saxo-Tinkoff. He was out last year in this race due to a doping ban. Those two riders are the only ones listed with everyone else in the field.
