- Tadej Pogacar is the +150 favorite to win the 2021 Tour de France.
- Primoz Roglic has +200 odds as the second betting option.
BREST, France – Tadej Pogacar and Primoz Roglic are the betting favorites to win the 2021 Tour de France.
As the two top options, which athlete has the better chance to win the most notable cycling betting event that starts on Saturday?
Tadej Pogacar Set History Last Year
Pogacar won the Tour de France last year in his first-ever entry in the race. He became the youngest winner since 1904 at just 22-years-old.
It’s up to the bettor to decide whether Pogacar’s performance last year was just the start of a miraculous run or if it was a fluke. However, sports betting sites seem to think he is primed to repeat as champion.
Tadej Pogačar has competed in 14 professional stage races.
Worst result: 13th at the 2019 Tour down Under; his first pro race.
Since then: 1st, 6th, 1st, 4th, 3rd, 1st, 2nd, 4th, 1st, 1st, 1st, 3rd, 1st.

Pogacar is clearly a possible winner and he’s going to be tough to beat, but if anyone is going to be able to do it, it may be Primoz Roglic, another Slovenian cyclist.
Primoz Roglic A Viable Option
Roglic finished as the runner-up last year and is projected to have a similar level of success in the 2021 edition of the Tour de France. Legal sports betting gamblers should note that Roglic has opted to spend the last couple of months training rather than competing.
Roglic has done well when he has competed this year, even beating Pogacar by over a minute in the Itzulia Basque Country earlier this season.
Pogacar has all of the hype and rightfully so, but Roglic can’t be counted out as he’s proven he has the ability to beat Pogacar.
