Tour De France Stage 4 Preview


Tour De France Stage 4 Preview

Tour De France Stage 3 was won by Kittel who was just too strong for the field as Peter Sagan followed that wheel home. Renshaw now the default OPQS sprinter was ahead of the hungry Coquard for 3rd. Again the blog turned a smaller profit failure of those coin toss match ups that all went close meant we recorded a +1.48pts profit to go along with 2 days of small profit before that.

A number of riders were put down for losing over a minute today including Konig, cheapest Frank Schleck, try Atapuma, stomach Rollan and Navarro I assume the late crash called this.

Tour De France Stage 4 may look bumpy compared to the day before but it offers little to test the legs bar maybe some cross winds causing havoc it could be another quiet day on road barring any late crashes like we saw today. With Kittel proving so good will other teams choose to hold back but I still think Europcar and Lotto will chase while Astana might be wise to send a man into the break so they can avoid been involved in any chase but stay in pink with another rider.

Looking at the finish it is slightly uphill but dips near the line so it will be a quick one outside of Lille. The two cat 4 climbs might encourage someone to go in break will the intermediate sprint comes atop a hill too. I assume we will see more than 2 in the break and a happy peloton to have more of the road to themselves after the huge British crowds. Each way is not something I am mad on and many books are being really tight offering 1/4 odds but Betfair sportsbook stand out with 1/4 each way and best price on Coquard who is very keen here and gunning for the green. He is my small each way punt at good odds.

4 small match bets see us on a day with little to catch the eye.
