Special Bets Available about Special Cyclists

The cycling season got into gear during the first week of February with the Saudi Tour taking place over five days and Spain’s Tour of Valencia running concurrently. It attracted some of the biggest names in the sport: Enric Mas, Remco Evenepoel, Jakob Fuglsang, Alejandro Valverde.

But how will their form be in the spring ahead of the Monument Races or summer during the Grand Tours? So far, the defending Tour de France champion, Tadej Pogacar, has yet to make an appearance in 2022.

Nevertheless, the Slovenian is just Evens to take a third consecutive victory in cycling’s greatest race. If you like something at a bigger odds bet365* could cater for you.

The world’s biggest bookmaker has several interesting ‘specials’ on cycling and other sports. One is 11/2 about Pogacar taking April’s one-day classic Liège–Bastogne–Liège and the Tour de France in the 2022.

Other cycling doubles include 7/1 about Alejandro Valverde winning a stage at both the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia and 9/1 about Wout van Aert to win both the Paris-Roubaix and Tour de Flanders races.


Formula 1 Specials

But it is not just cycling found at bet365’s ‘specials’ section.

Want odds on a British F1 driver winning the British Grand Prix or a Spanish driver taking the Spanish Grand Prix? It’s the place to look.

2021 was a crackerjack of a Formula 1 season and while the cars will look very different in 2022, bookmakers are predicting Lewis Hamilton and Max Verstappen will be the stars of the show once again.

The bet365 betting line on Lewis Hamilton’s race wins – once again found in the specials section – is 7.5. If you think he will win seven races or less 8/11 is available. Eight or more race wins is Evens.

Max Verstappen’s race win line is set at 5.5 and you can have 5/6 about both more or less.


Specials To Look Forward To

Many other sports get a mention in the bet365 specials list. For example, if you think there is a chance every match at Snooker’s World Championship will feature a century break a tantalising 6/1 quote might tempt you.

And the biggest betting event of 2022 – the World Cup – already has some intriguing special bet odds on offer.

It is 33/1 about any player scoring five goals in a single World Cup match and you can have 40/1 about any player scoring more than 13.5 goals during the competition.

At much shorter odds but more realistic… if you think a goal will be ruled-out by VAR in the World Cup final, 11/4 is available.
