Default The Cycling Betting Thread

If you have a punt on cycling, throw your bets in here. That's what I'm going to do.

Aim: To get to $2000 by the end of October. Obviously I will aim higher, but got to stay with what is realistic.

$40 Pinotti over Dupont @ $1.57 (Stage 19)
$30 Basso top 3 @ $1.80 (Stage 19)
$20 Basso over Scarponi @ $1.85 (Stage 19)
$20 Basso over Evans @ $2.25 (Stage 19)
$30 Basso to win the Giro @ $1.55

Where did you get those odds, they all seem a bit long even going into 19?

What do you mean a bit long? They were the stage 19 head to heads. I.E the position the riders finish on the stage.

The only overall bet in there was Basso to win the Giro.

But to answer your question: Bet365, Sportingbet and Centrebet

Bold = Winners
Unbold = Losers
Underline = Pending

+$51.8 not including Basso winning the Giro. Though, he won't lose, you can't count your chickens in this game.

Was referring to the odds on Basso to take the win.

Wish I had layed Evans at the end of week 1!

Every place had him $1.55 the day before he took pink. Some had him at $1.60. But yes, he shouldn't have been that long.

Dauphine:

The odds are exactly as I thought.

Contador $1.80 to win

Contador $2.30 to win prologue
Millar $3.25 to win prologue

Will wait for some head to heads to come through. If there's nothing decent, I"ll be giving this week a miss. Hard to get an idea on what is going on with Contador.

Might do a small play on EBH to win the prologue. $12. If he's in form, he should do it.

We'll see if I decide anything later in the afternoon when more odds are around.
