As the race is coming to the end on 11 September, we take a last minute look at constantly changing La Vuelta a Espana 2022 Betting Odds, which are currently led by a Belgian cyclist, Remco Evenepoel, who, priced at 1.11, is the favourite to ride off with the red jersey. There is no doubt this final major cycling tour of the season attracts massive interest
Here we take a look at some of the betting markets and offer up a guide to betting on the 2022 Vuelta a Espana.
The 2022 Vuelta a Espana is the 3rd of the big three Grand Tours in the cycling season, and runs from Friday 19th August through to Sunday 11th September this year. There are 21 stages to the event, covering a total distance of 3,280km.
The race began in the Netherlands, at Utrecht, with an early 23.3km team time trial, before concluding in Breda in Stage 3, so this stage was an opportunity for the sprinters to gain some points on the flat terrain. Once in Spain, the climbing began, taking in the Basque region in the north of the country, and that is when the Vuelta a Espana 2022 favourites started to really emerge. By half way they were on the southern coast before heading up into the mountains, and the race will eventually conclude in Madrid.
Slovenian Primož Roglič was one of the leading bikers in La Vuelta a Espana 2022 betting odds as he was aiming to maintain his stranglehold on the event, having won the previous three, however he left the competition after stage 16 crash. As a result, Remco Evenepoel and Enric Mas Nicolau are the main contenders to take over the red jersey this year.
Other riders with favourable odds are:Miguel Ángel López and Joao Almeida; but any 2022 Vuelta a Espana preview will always be cautionary, due to the fact that who get to the finish line first is always open to change
2. Vuelta a Espana 2022 Betting Odds
As we are approaching the end of the race, Vuelta a Espana 2022 betting odds are led by Remco Evenepoel (at 1.11 with bet365) who is followed by Enric Mas Nicolau (at 7.00 with bet365).
Other candidates included in Vuelta a Espana 2022 odds to win are Miguel Angel Lopez at 41.00, Joao Almeida at 41.00 and Juan Ayuso at 101.00 with the same bookmaker.
It could be that the best odds at Vuelta a Espana lie in the alternative markets, especially the uphill finishes, of which there are eight at this event. With 21 stages, it is possible to bet on each one separately, with certain riders performing better in particular terrains, or on specific routes. Top three finishes are popular too, or punters can also bet on Vuelta a Espana 2022 winner margins, leading points champion and top cycling team. The options are plenty with the chance to make a different type of bet, every day over the three weeks of racing.
Although La Vuelta 2022 cycling betting odds suggest a winner, predicting outcomes is still really tricky. For example, Primož Roglič, despite being one of the initial Vuelta a Espana 2022 favourites, is out of the competition.
Even before his crash, however, it was Remco Evenepoel and Enric Mas Nicolau who were considered as the most probable winners, which has been expressed in Vuelta a Espana outright odds. They are still indicated as bookmakers' favourites and we cannot disagree with that.
I think everybody is getting a bit scared of the roads here in the south of Spain. We are all going quite slow in the corners because it’s really slippery. It’s really dangerous and nobody wants to get out of the Vuelta in the last week because of a crash and it’s the same for me. Everything can still happen. - Remco Evenepoel, Velo News
In the points race, unlike the Tour de France and Giro d'Italia, both the sprinters and climbers are on a level playing field (or road), so neither takes an advantage. In the team event, it again will depend much on the riders who they can get out on the road to represent them, but the winner should come from one of: Jumbo-Visma; Bora-Hansgrohe; Bahrain-Victorious, INEOS Grenadiers, and UAE Team Emirates.
