Betting Tips Vuelta 2018

Richie Porte is one of the most called names for the end victory in the Vuelta a Espana 2018. So why not place a bet on him? Although Porte is one of the most unlucky riders ever and still busy coming back from a heavy injury we expect him to do very well. Because of this the 3.50 odd might be fairly interesting.

If Richie Porte is unlucky again, or still has problems with his injury, his top spot might be taken by one of the other top contenders for the general classification including Simon Yates and Nairo Quintana. Simon Yates contended in the Giro d’Italia this year in which he won three stages, which shows he is in good shape. Because of this the 4.00 odds might be worth the shot. On top of this Quintana won a very heave mountain stage in the Tour de France which shows he is still very dangerous in mountainous terrain. This makes Quintana, with a very interesting 8/1 quote, a fairly interesting rider to bet on.

Besides these big names I also want to mention some less recommended riders which might be interesting to place a small bet on. First off all Wilco Kelderman will make its comeback during the Vuelta a Espana after a shoulder injury which made him unable to ride the Tour the France. At most bookmakers Kelderman gets odds of +/- 29.00 which could be very lucrative. One other rider that could surprise people in my opinion is Vincenzo Nibali. If he has a good three weeks he could be interesting for the top spots especially with odds of +/- 29.00. One last tip is Steven Kruijswijk. Kruijswijk could be a very good outsider after a very strong performance (fifth in general classification) during the Tour de France. Odds for Steven Kruijswijk average around 40.00.
