Giro d' Italia betting odds
Giro d' Italia
The Giro d’Italia or ‘Tour of Italy’ is the annual bicycle race which consists of multiple stages. It is held mostly in Italy but it also passes through other countries. The first race was organized already in 1909 for the reason of increasing the sales of the newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’.
Since it’s beginning, the race was held every year with two exceptions during the two world wars. As the popularity of this race rose, riders from all over the world started to join in on the race. The teams who participate in the race are mostly the UCI WorldTeams (as the event is part of UCI World Tour) with some exceptions called ‘wild cards’. Like other Grand Tours, Giro consists of 21 stages across 23-24 days with 2 or 3 days of rest.

Giro d' Italia betting markets
Even though Giro d’Italia isn’t as popular as football, cycling still has a huge number of fans who enjoy Giro betting. Of course, there is more than one competition in the category of cyclings like Tour de France and La Vuelta. There are several types of road cycling; single day, time trial, ultramarathon and stage races.
Giro betting on cycling futures, race winner, top 3 finish, top 10 finish and stage betting is usually available with most bookies. Cycling futures is betting on the winner of the event – players will get the list of participating riders with the ones that are most likely to win the race.
Race winner is pretty much the same, except this can be done for any type of race not only big events. The top 3 finish is interesting – as it allows you the room for error. The same goes for the top 10 finish. If you are not certain which rider will win – but you are certain for those top 3 (or 10) you can choose this method to make a more secure bet.
However, with less risk in the bet, you get lower Giro odds. Stage betting is something to pick good Giro odds, especially when you know the style of particular rider. You simply choose the player you to think will win in a certain stage of the race and you are pretty much done.
Giro d'Italia odds
Usually, the player who won in the previous competition will have the brightest odds to win in the following season as well. Giro betting on entire competition is always a good way to earn more from the bet. If you see that bet as too risky, you can always choose bets with lower Giro odds and combine it with few others to still get good value.
However, understanding the odds is what’s most important, to begin with. There are three main types; American, decimal and fractional. American Giro odds will be easily recognized by negative ‘-’ or positive ‘+’ sign. The ‘-’ sign represents the amount that the player needs to wager to earn $100. If ‘+’ sign is in front of the odds, then the numbers represent the amount which can be won by wagering $100.
For example, -200 means that you have to wager $200 to get $100, while +200 means that for every $100 wagered, you can get $200. Decimal odds are the most simple ones, as they already represent the amount that can be won by $1. To get the total payout, you simply need to multiply the amount you wanted to wager with odds.
Fractional odds are a bit more complicated. They are written with slash ‘/’ or hyphen ‘-’ and they look like this; 5/1, 5-1 (read five to one). The specific fraction 5/1 means that for every $1 wagered, you can win $5. To get the total payout, you need to follow this equation; [Stake x (Numerator/Denominator)] + Stake where numerator/denominator is the fractional odd = total payout.
Comparing Giro odds is the best way of getting the most out of your bet. Of course, after you made a good foundation with legit prediction and research. So, let’s assume you did all that work. Now, it is the time to place a bet and find a bookie who offers the most.
