2009 Tour de France betting has seen Alberto Contador take command of the mountains to become the heavy favorite on the Tour de France odds board. 2009 Tour de France fans thought that Lance Armstrong, Contador’s Astana teammate, had a shot to beat the Tour de France odds but once the race hit the Alps Contador took command.

Contador lived up to his 2009 Tour de France billing as the most explosive and dominant mountain climber with a stunning performance on Sunday in which he blew away the field and the Tour de France odds.  When Sunday’s stage was all over Contador led Armstrong by a comfortable 1 minute and 37 seconds to take firm command of the 2009 Tour de France.

It is no secret that there has been considerable tension between Contador and Armstrong throughout the 2009 Tour de France.  While Contador has been quiet about it and has tried to keep to himself Armstrong has done much to fan the flames as he has tried to get into the head of Contador.  But on Sunday Armstrong more or less conceded defeat for the 2009 Tour de France saying that he was not the best rider and that he will be a good teammate and ride for Contador.

Armstrong finished a distant ninth overall on the Sunday stage of the
2009 Tour de France.  While the 2009 Tour de France is now Contador’s to lose it also has its most brutal stages yet to come and anything can still happen because of that.  Also in the hunt for the 2009 Tour de France title behind Contador and Armstrong is Bradley Wiggins of the Garmin team.  Andreas Kloden of Astana was fourth while another Astana team member, Andreas Kloden, was fifth.

With another mountain stage set for Monday it looked as if Contandor would continue to add to his lead since that is his strength.  Another question as the riders climb the mountains is whether Armstrong can even hold on to second place with a strong field chasing him down.


Bet on the MLBGamblers might feel compelled to place their baseball bets on San Francisco. Rival evaluators who scouted the Giants’ offensive work during spring training all left thinking the same thing; pitchers from opposing teams will have to dig deep. Similar to the Kansas City Royals of the previous two years, the Giants are not known for striking out too often.
