I've had a look, but its hard to find any value. Contador is way too short odds, Froome has pretty short odds as well so no go for the overall. There isn't really an outstanding sprinter here who you can confidently back for the flat days.

I suppose who could bet on Purito for the uphill finishes but again he'll probably be really short odds so not worth the risk imo.

Some promising odds on Gerrans, I think.

Looked to be some good racing in their one day races during week hope the big one is half as good.

Unibet has some interesting season bets:

The same rider to win both RVV and PR @ 7
The same rider to win both AGR and FW @ 8
The same rider to win both AGR and LBL @ 8
The same rider to win both FW and LBL @ 9
O 3.5 Italians in top 10 in MSR @ 1.95
The same rider to win both ITTs in the Tour @ 10.

Any thoughts on these?

I'd stay away from them, they are all below the value you would get betting on the races themselves. Except maybe the Ardennes ones if Gilbert has a great start to the season.

e.g. Say Boonen and Cancellara are 4.00 for Ronde, you bet equal units on them both so you end up with double your money (assuming one of them wins). Then roll the money into the win the next weekend at 3.50 and you end up with your original 7.00 but with the advantage of not betting 3 months in advance.

I'd actually consider the M-SR one purely on history, last time the unders won was 2007 although no Ballan and an ageing Petacchi. With the amount of **** happening in Italy at the moment too...

I see your point, but you forget that if neither Cancellara nor Boonen wins RVV I lose double the amount I would have had I chosen "my" bet instead. Also your suggestion requires that you can get odds 4 at both Cancellara and Boonen for RVV (which I doubt) and then odds 3.5 on the winner for PR (which I doubt even more).

Also I get the added benefit of having the RVV winner to win PR at odds 7 even if it's not Boonen or Cancellara. Say Pozzato wins RVV for instance, I'd have him as the winner of PR at odds 7 which I can then keep or sell to limit my losses.
