Updated Tour de France Odds
It was a crazy day in the Tour de France on Thursday, but Chris Froome found a way to keep his yellow jersey despite a crash.
According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, Froome is still the favorite to win this year’s Tour de France, as he has -500 odds to win. Other short odds to win are Nairo Quintana (+800) and Richie Porte (+1400). Stage 13 of the Tour takes place on Friday. It is a 23-mile individual time trial from Bourg-Saint-Andeol to La Caverne du Pont-d’Arc.
Stage 12 on Thursday saw a wreck involving Froome when competitors ran into an official motorcycle. Froome actually parted ways with his bike for some time and began running up the track until his team could fetch his bike and return it to him. He was not penalized for the move and ended up finishing 25th for the stage, 6:45 out of first. Belgium’s Thomas De Gendt won the stage in 4:31:51.
Froome remains the overall leader, now with a total time of 57:11:33. He leads Britain’s Adam Yates by 47 seconds for the yellow jersey. Quintana sits in fourth place right now, 61 seconds behind Froome while Porte is 11th overall, 2:22 out of the overall lead.
