Tour de France predictions for the huge cycling race between July 1 and July 23. Can Chris Froome win the Tour de France for the third straight year? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

Best Bet For Today’s Stage: Sunday, July 23


Only something truly dramatic will deny us a successful outright bet on the Tour de France, with our 13/8 pre-race pick Chris Froome taking a 54-second lead into the final stage of this year’s race.

And of course, we now have one last chance to add to our stage wins for Le Tour 2017 and the man we are backing is Edvald Boasson Hagen.

Marcel Kittel had dominated the flat stages before he was forced to abandon the race, and Hagen capitalised on the German’s absence to finally win a stage after a couple of second-placed finishes earlier on.

The 30-year-old Norwegian appears back to his best and I believe he will be the man to ensure Andre Greipel finally goes an entire Tour de France without winning single stage.

Outright Tour de France Prediction & Betting Tips (Pre-Race)


Chris Froome has been the dominant man in the Tour de France since becoming the number one rider for Team Sky, winning the race in three of the last four years and each of the last two, but the 32-year-old comes into this year’s race in disappointing form having failed to win a single race this season. Those struggles have given his main rivals - Richie Porte and Nairo Quintana - added belief that this could be the year they finally win the Tour de France for the first time.

Porte, who left Team Sky last year, has not had such problems and that is why it is no surprise to see him sitting second in the betting behind Froome. The 32-year-old Australian has already won the Tour Down Under and Tour de Romandie this season, while also finishing second in the Criterium du Dauphine, and his first crack at the Tour de France as the main focus of his team resulted in a fifth-place finish a year ago. So Porte certainly has the credentials to win it this time around.

Quintana, meanwhile, has come close to winning the Tour de France on several occasions in the past. The 27-year-old Colombian had second-placed finishes in 2013 and 2015 before finishing third a year ago, and he goes into this year's instalment on somewhat of a high after finishing second at the Giro d'Italia. Therefore if Froome and Porte are not on top of their game, Quintana could finally end his wait to claim the biggest success of his career.

However, I am backing Froome to overcome his 2017 slump in the best possible fashion by winning the Tour de France for the fourth time in his career. He has shown some improvement in recent months, finishing fourth at the recent Criterium du Dauphine, and he knows exactly what it takes to win the biggest race in cycling - he has done it three times, after all. Froome will be able to put some breathing room between himself and his rivals during the first five stages, and from there him and his team's experience of winning the race will come into play. They should be able to keep Froome's main threats at bay for the remainder of the race and ensure the British rider is celebrating when all 3,540km are in the books on Sunday, July 23.
