2009 Giro d’Italia Winner Betting Odds

***UPDATE 5th May***

Levi Leipheimer’s odds have shortened to 5.00 (4/1) while Astana team mate Lance Armstrong is drifting, now at 15.00 (14/1).

The Italian riders seem to be drifting now, the bookmakers having little faith outside of Basso and Cunego for a home win. Di Luca, Scarponi, Pelizzotti, Bruseghin and Simoni all drifted out to big prices.

The first big Grand Tour of the year arrives with the start of the 2009 GIro d’Italia (Tour of Italy) and the betting heavily favours Ivan Basso as favourite with odds of 2.65. Leipheimer leads a strong Astana team which includes Lance Armstrong who had this as his season’s goal prior to his collarbone break. Will Armstrong support Leipheimer or be looking to win the 100th version of this famous race?

Former winner Damiano Cunego features towards the top of the betting but is once again likely to be outdone once the road goes up in consecutive days. Denis Menchov is a nice each-way bet and will use the race as a warm-up for the Tour de France as he did in 2008.

2009 Tour de France winner Carlos Sastre is long odds at 21.00 but looked very much out of sorts in recent one-day races; he’ll certainly be searching for better form in the next 3 weeks.
