Options are in the same order as in the odds. Other include all possible options. If your rider still not there then there is a possibility that the rider you like will not win. :) Sorry.

We can hope. :D Although I do think last year's route was better for him than this years.

I'm gonna go for Porte, think he will be up for this barring any unfortunate event trashing his hopes again. Nibali if not Porte.

Heart says Froome or Uran
Head says it's one of those GTs when Nibali is in a perfect position to capitalise from the field not being as strong as it could possibly be (both Froome and Dumoulin being tired after Giro) or maybe Movistar to make use of their numbers if they survive the first week

Brain: Valverde (why isn't he an option?)
Heart: Too busy being a non-sentient organ to provide its opinion.

I second that, he'll escape somewhere in the process due to Movistar numbers, nobody will cover, and he'll hold on for the win :D

Quintana, and it's not gonna be particularly close unless he has problems in the first week.

I agree with the comments that this is Quintana's to lose. Froome has this aura of invicability around him right now, for various reasons, but the Giro in his legs will be too much. If Quintana is close to top form (2016 Vuelta / 2015 Tour) he should win comfortably, he should survive the cobbles and will tear the race apart in the Pyrenees.

Wouldn't be surprised to see another Movistar rider on the podium as well. They're all in for the Tour this year.

Roglic to wear the yellow jersey for the biggest part of the race (Kruijswijk, Gesink & Tolhoek will provide the support to do that) and only losing it due to his lack of experience in three-week racing (like Yates). Simply because he's the best climber and TT for a certain period of the race.
Winner? Froome, Quintana, Nibali or Dumoulin.

Why?

The guy has won 8 of his 9 latest stage races and except for the Dauphiné and the Ruta del Sol stage last year has won every mountain stage he has raced in the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

It's as if people are blinded by that number, though. 38.
