It is now clear to the betting offices: Evenepoel is the top favorite for the upcoming Tour of Italy. It starts on Saturday October 3 and ends on Sunday October 25. The former footballer is going for the overall victory in the Giro. He has already shown fantastic things in stage races this season, with wins in the Tour of Burgos, Tour of the Algarve and Tour of San Juan.
With the ‘bookies’ they put Evenepoel on one spot for a gamble on the final classification of the Giro. At Unibet and Napoleon Games you only get 2.5 euros back for every euro you bet. At bwin, that is even just 2.4 euros. Bet365 keeps it at 2.67 euros and the Italian Sisal at 3 euros.
Defending champion Richard Carapaz (Team Ineos) is by far in second, but already yields 3.75 euros for every euro you would bet on the Ecuadorian. Next come Jakob Fuglsang, Vincenzo Nibali and Simon Yates. This is followed by a big gap to men like Alexander Vlasov, Marc Soler, Ivan Ramiro Sosa and Rafal Majka.
