Odds on Van Garderen moving up and down ... took him at 2.04 at Pinnacle, he started as a fav there but odds changed a lot. Dont see a reason why people are backing Coppel. Ok he rides in his home country and thats always a motivation but this short prologue should suit Van Garderen much better then Coppel. We'll see what happens.

Where did you get the bet Horner over Mangel??

Sportingbet, mate!

Both the Brittish and Australian ones have it.

In the Paris Nice prologue, Horner finished 3 seconds behind Mangel so with a bit more climbing, he should have enough to get him. Thomas finished 20 odd seconds ahead of Roulston, hence the Thomas bet. I know Roulston finished third in a chrono not long ago.

Van Garderen should come top 10, could even push top 5. I wouldn't be surprised if he actually comes up with a win, but Top 5 and 10 would be good for him.

Ok thanks, normally most match-ups are the same at all bookies but at Pinnacle and bet365 (those 2 i use most) its Horner versus Tjallingii.
Horner is in great shape this year but i read on his blog he feels pretty tired after California, he only arrived in France after 20 hours of travelling so its very possible legs arent gone be what they were the previous races.
In normal conditions he should beat Tjallingii and Mangel ... but in cycling anything can happen

Yeah, we'll see. Brajkovic did 8:39, Mandel did 8:59. On a normal day, Horner should do something in-between. So we'll see how he feels but looking at these times so far and considering the big guns haven't come out, I think it's looking good!

Just realised Roulston didn't start, so that bet will be a refund. I wish H2H's were all in, but they're not!

Nice ride from the American. Pity Contador beat him by two seconds. Nearly was a brilliant day.

But anyway, strong ride from him. Very strong ride.

To answer your question regarding the books.

Bet365, Pinnacle and Sportingbet do good ones. Centrebet in Australia also do great head to heads. Nearly trump them all with the value. Sportingbet and Centrebet don't change their odds regardless of how much money is put on. Only Bet365 and Pinnacle do.

3/3 and almost Van Garderen at 41, very strong man!!

I'm happy with my pick on Van Garderen, Tjallingii did beat Horner so i'm glad i skipped that one. Thanks to blogs and twitter betting on cycling gets a bit easier! You cant draw a conclussion out of odds going up and down. Van Garderen started at 1.85, went down to 1.56!!! and then up to 2.04 ...

I'll keep an eye on Sportingbet and Centrebet, i also use Unibet and Bwin but they often have only little amount of match-ups and Unibet has incredibly stupid rules!!! When you bet some rider wont finished in top 10 and he does not finish they void the bet . And Bwin doesnt want to except my money anymore, i tried to deposit 3 times today and they send back my money ... never had that 'problem' with a bookie
