I'm considering a flutter on the Tour this year. I may as well try and take advantage of sitting watching hours on end of it!

What do you think of the following bets?

over 161.5 riders to finish - 4/5 (Betfair) from what ive seen the last five tours have finished over this figure.

Mark Cavendish to win 4.5 stages or more - 9/4 (Paddy Power)

Mark Cavendish to win points classification - 7/5 (can be taken each way with Paddy Power)

Robert Gesink to win the tour without Contador and A.Shleck - 11/2 but ill back each way so he needs to finsh top 5.

Millionaire or stick to the day job?........

    Given that it's a two horse race. I've plumped for an each way (top 4 finish) on Ivan Basso 25 to 1. Got to be a better bet than Bradley Wiggens at the same odds.
    You've no won the Big Cup since 1902!

    Obviously 7/5 each-way for a place isn't worth bothering about. How about Chris Horner at 100s or Leipheimer at 66s for each way bets?

    I am a fully qualified betting shop manager so it may be an idea to ignore me as we tend to be the worst tipsters.

    For the polka dot jersey, I should have added.
