From springtime classics to World Championships, gruelling mountain climbs to flat-out sprints and varnished tracks to cobbled roads, Betway Sport is here to provide you with the very best in cycling betting on events all around the globe.
Whether you want to bet in-play on the peloton’s next move or make a wager before the action begins, Betway is the place to make a play on your favourite event – no matter if it’s a velodrome duel or Grand Tour.
Our expert traders have a wide range of markets you can bet on. Not only can you deposit on the finishing position of any given rider in a stage or event, we also offer match betting (rider v rider) and innovative specials that add ever more excitement to your cycling betting experience.
Thanks to multi-dimensional variation and markets, cycling is one of the most fascinating sports anybody can bet on. And with the Betway app, you can engage in live cycling betting anywhere, anytime.
Cycling betting isn’t just about guessing who the winner will be. You can pit riders head-to-head – and back who you think will finish first between two rival racers.
And it doesn’t stop there. Our ever-changing range of specials provides cycling odds that allow you to predict any number of outcomes, such as how many minutes behind the leader a cyclist will finish, or if they will abandon the race altogether at any point.
For selected major events, you can even tweet our traders with #BetYourWay before or during a race, and ask for odds on a racing situation you think will materialise. Just allow our traders a few minutes to make their calculations – and we’ll tell you the price. If you can think of it, you can use Betway to wager on it.
Betway cycling odds are monitored, maintained and updated by our team of expert traders, who are here to offer you the most competitive, real-time odds available anywhere.
Major Cycling Events
The Tour de France, Giro d’italia and Vuelta a Espana are the three Grand Tours of European professional cycling and as such, play out over several week across multiple stages. As the only stage races that can last beyond fourteen days, there are endless opportunities for imaginative cycling betting.
One of the most popular bets in all of sport is the overall winner of the Tour de France. Players can bet on the rider they think will finish the Champs-Elysees in the yellow jersey before the Tour begins – or bet live at any stage during the Tour, when cycling odds will update based on the ever-changing likelihood of contenders finishing in first place.
But say you don’t just want to predict the overall Tour winner – and are looking for something a little more specialised. That’s where things start to get really interesting.
Perhaps you’ve got a hunch on an in-form speed specialist. Sprinters will never win the overall Tour but they can achieve first place in individual stages. This is an important feature of the competition – which is why riders who win sprint stages are awarded with a green jersey and those who win a mountain stage are granted the title “King of the Mountains” and the privilege of donning a polka-dot top. Betway honours this Tour de France tradition by offering players the chance to bet on individual stages as well as the overall event.
Not that you have to pick the stage winner, of course. You can bet on any rider finishing anywhere in the top three, which shortens your odds – but provides a greater chance of winning. At Betway, the choice is yours.
Of course, cycling is about much more than the Tour de France, so let’s take a moment to explore the other two Grand Tours – plus the World Championships.
The Giro d’italia takes place in late May or early June, before the Tour de France. With less time to prepare for the event, the action is often unpredictable and dramatic.
Traditionally, there are more surprise winners in the Giro than the Tour de France – making outsiders viable propositions to place your faith in.
The Vuelta a Espana is the youngest of all three races and takes place last, to round off the Grand Tour season.
While it may not carry quite the same history as the other two tournaments, many consider the Vuelta to be a more chaotic, exciting competition, with multiple teams standing a genuine chance of winning.
Riders and teams who didn’t clinch prizes in the other two Grand Tour events are given the opportunity to redeem themselves – adding more suspense to an already tense event. Many cycling insiders would point to the Vuelta as the most open of all three Grand Tours.
The event also serves as a warm-up for the UCI World Championship, a multi-format event that takes place every September, in a different country every year.
Featuring male and female races across road cycling, track cycling, cyclo-cross, mountain biking, BMX and indoor cycling, the World Championships is the most richly diverse event available for players to engage with.
The winners of the event are rewarded the “rainbow jersey.”
