Tour De France Stage 9 betting tips, predictions, odds and free bets (Arras > Roubaix - July 15, 2018)

Tour de France Stage 9, a 156.6 kilometres route from Arras to Roubaix, is bound to bring spectacle. It takes in 15 stretches of pavè so we expect fireworks from the cobbles specialists. Read below our Tour De France Stage 9 betting preview, best odds, expert tips on Winner & Head to Head, bookmakers offers & no deposit free bets to start betting online!



The cobbled stage in the 2018 Tour de France features fifteen stretches of pavé. Totalling at 21.7 kilometres. This is a greater distance of cobbled paths than the previous ones. The highest cobble density is between kilometre 84.5 and kilometre 137 as this section takes in eleven stretches of pavé with the last one Camphin-en-Pévèle, only 17km before the end in Roubaix. The final cobbled path the riders cover is at Willems a Hem. The final stretch of cobbled path covers 1.4km. After that, riders leave the cobbled paths for the final 8km of the stage. The finish is not inside but just outside the Roubaix Velodrome.

It's the most feared stage for the GC contenders. Stage 5 of the 2014 Tour de France proved to be decisive. Chris Froome slid out on a corner and ended his race with a broken wrist. Alberto Contador also abandoned the Tour, while Vincenzo Nibali rode a perfect race, which ultimately led to the overall that year. The Italian put in an amazing ride, reaching the finish at the start of Roubaix’s infamous Arenberg Forest section in third place, just 19 seconds behind stage winner Lars Boom.

Stage 4 of the 2015 Tour de France also was on cobblestones. Tony Martin took the win and Chris Froome was one of the best among the GC contenders.

Classics specialists like Peter Sagan, Greg van Avermaet and John Degenkolb - they have all won a Paris-Roubaix in their career - will be the men to watch. Of course, Sagan will be the favourite #1 as he won this year's Paris-Roubaix in dominating fashion. His issue, as always, is that the peloton are hyperaware of his every move, meaning he can only win stages with full frontal raw ability.

It will be interesting to see how will run the current yellow jersey. Will Van Avermaet be allowed to ride for the win, or does he have to stick around to navigate his captain Richie Porte - not the best pilot on the cobbles - over the pavè?

The same applies to Sep Vanmarcke and Rigoberto Uran while Niki Terpstra - winner of the 2013 Paris-Roubaix - has no domestic duties.

Edvald Boasson Hagen missed out at Paris-Roubaix this year but he is one of the best rider on cobbles and we expect the Norwegian to be in the mix.

Other contenders should be Jasper Stuyven, Oliver Naesen, Alexander Kristoff, Arnaud Demare and Michael Valgren Andersen. Few chances for other sprinters such as Andrè Greipel, Dyland Groenewegen, Fernando Gaviria and Mark Cavendish.

Daniel Martin crashed on Saturday and should be out of contention. The likes of Jens Keukeleire and Yves Lampaert are viable alternative if you are looking for dark horses.
