Tradej at +325 is possibly the best odds of the entire Olympic games. He has been the most dominant cyclist in the world since 2019 and has shown no signs of slowing down.
Pogacar holds the second-fastest all-time record for the Myojin Pass Climb, the second-fastest all-time record for the Mikuni TCC, and the second-fastest all-time record for the regular Myojin Pass event.
No other cyclist has dominated to this degree, so betting fans should jump onto these odds early before they shorten as betting fans recognize.
Longer Odds On Underdogs
For underdog betting fans looking for potential upsets, there are even longer odds on other big-name cyclists to look out for.
Primoz Roglic at +650 is a major potential big winner in Tokyo. Roglic didn’t compete in the Tour de France this year but was the biggest name in cycling the last time he was competing.
In 2019, Roglic came in first place in the Giro d’Italia Stages 1 and 9, Vuelta a España Stage 10, overall Tour de Romandie, overall Tirreno-Adriatico, and overall UAE Tour.
He also won the Tour de France in 2019.
Sports betting fans expect it to be a two-man race between Roglic and Pogacar; and with both racers having long odds, betting fans will cash in big either way.
