Cycling is clearly not as popular to bet on as any other professional sports such as basketball, football, or hockey, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it. Nor does it mean that it’s hard to find bookies that will offer cycling odds and cycling betting lines.
On the contrary, while still a niche sport, cycling is well covered by most prominent sportsbooks. So you can rest assured that you can start betting on cycling without any added hassle, particularly on major cycling events such as Giro d’Italia or Tour de France.
How to read Cycling Odds
Reading cycling odds is very straightforward if you understand the basics of sports betting odds because the offer doesn’t differ much from the odds you’ll find on basketball or any other sport. Admittedly, some bet types are different, but for the most part, you will only be betting on the outright winner markets, which is a very elementary bet type to understand.
How to bet on Cycling
If you want to start betting on cycling, you need to follow the same rules you would before you start betting on any sport or esports. You need to find a bookie that has a solid offer of cycling betting odds, and you need to know what you’re betting on.
The first step is easy to achieve, while the latter will take some time investment, as you learn about the teams, riders, and tracks and find enough sources of information and data that will help you make the right picks.
After you achieve those two steps, all there is left to do is to start betting on cycling!
