Bradley Wiggins Favored to Win Giro d’Italia

Bet on 2013 Italian Tour

Cycling betting odds are on the board right now at BetPhoenix. You can bet on the Tour de France and you can also bet on the upcoming Giro d’Italia that gets underway on May 4th. Let’s look at this race that will likely have Bradley Wiggins as the favorite.

Bradley Wiggins

The defending Tour de France winner comes into this race as one of the favorites in cycling betting. He was fifth in the Tour of Cataluyna and the Giro del Trentino but he still is a force to be reckoned with and should be the favorite in cycling betting for the Giro d’Italia. If he gets out to the lead you have to know that his team, Sky, will protect him throughout the race.

Vincenzo Nibali

He won both the Tirreno and the Giro del Trentino so he comes into this race red-hot. He has never won the Giro d’Italia and to win it he will probably have to get past Wiggins.

Ryder Hesjedal

He comes into this race as the defending champ and while that sounds good, no rider has defended his title in this race since Miguel Indurain in 1993. I don’t see him being in contention based on his early season results.

Cadel Evans

He would become the oldest winner of the Giro d’Italia ever if he can pull of the win. I don’t see it happening as he really hasn’t shown anything since winning the Tour de France a couple of years ago.

Michele Scarponi

He won this race two years ago after Alberto Contador’s win was thrown out. He has been up and down so far this season but he could be an interesting longshot in cycling betting.

If you are looking for another longshot then you may want to consider Mauro Santambrogio who was second in the Giro del Trentino.
