2024 Tour de France Team Classification Odds: Team Emirates favourites

The 111th Tour de France will be the first not to finish in Paris but the 22 competing teams will be working as hard as ever to stand on the top step of the podium in Nice on Sunday 21st July.

With two time trials and seven mountain stages to tackle, the challenge is as tough as ever, even though the traditional closing charge along the Champs d'Elysees will not be taking place this time due to preparations for the Paris Olympics.

The race will instead finish with an individual time trial and UAE Team Emirates are favourites to top the team classification having finished second to Team Jumbo-Visma last year.

Tour de France

UAE Team Emirates

Latest Odds - 4/7

The UAE Team Emirates challenge will be led by individual race favourite Tadej Pogacar.

Pogacar won the race in 2020 and 2021 and has been second in each of the last two seasons, so he gives his squad a tremendous platform from which to build.

The Slovenian rider won this year's Giro d'Italia and his team are the most successful outfit in cycling this season.

They should put up a strong challenge in the mountains after Adam Yates and Joao Almeida impressed in the Tour of Switzerland and both riders are in the top eight in the individual race betting too.

Marc Soler, Juan Ayuso and Pavel Sivakov also climb well, while Nils Politt and Tim Wellens are their best bets for success on the flatter stages.

After finishing sixth in 2022 and second last season, the Emirates outfit look primed for success this time.

Ineos Grenadiers

Latest Odds - 3/1

The UK-based Ineos Grenadiers won the Tour team classification in 2022 but were only fourth last season. They will be out to improve on that this time but are not as strong as they once were, as younger names come through to lead their challenge and former principals Geraint Thomas and Michal Kwiatkowski play more of a supporting role.

Carlos Rodriguez should be their main man this time, with Egan Bernal and Tom Pidcock also capable of performing well.

Bora-Hansgrohe

Latest Odds - 8/1

The Bora-Hansgrohe team look like an outfit on the rise now they are backed by Red Bull's money, although they have finished only fourth and seventh in the last two seasons.

Like Team Emirates, they are also led by a Slovenian superstar in Primoz Roglic, who would love to add a Tour success to his wins in the Vuelta d'Espana and Giro d'Italia. 

His preparations were hampered by a crash in the Tour of the Basque Country but he won this month's Criterium du Dauphine and has solid support from Jai Hindley and Alexander Vlasov.

Bahrain Victorious

Latest Odds - 12/1

Bahrain Victorious finished on the podium last season in third place having been seventh in 2022. 

They lack a star contender for the general classification this year, though, and are more likely to be aiming to pick up stage wins, although ace descender Matej Mohoric, Santiago Buitrago, Jack Haig and Pello Bilbao are all capable performers.

Team Visma - Lease a Bike

Latest Odds - 14/1

The renamed Visma team were the class of the field last season but have been blighted by terrible luck so far this year.

Top man Jonas Vingegaard has won the Tour in each of the last two seasons but is lucky to even be lining up this time after suffering a major crash in the Tour of the Basque Country. 

Another key man, Wout van Aert, had earlier had his own bad tumble and his participation has also been in doubt until recently.

Matteo Jorgenson and Wilco Kelderman are capable of picking up the slack if Vingegaard struggles but this does not look likely to be Team Visma's year.

Soudal-Quickstep

Latest Odds - 25/1

The Soudal-Quickstep team can boast a GC contender in fourth favourite Remco Evenepoel, although the talented 24-year-old Belgian is making his debut in the race.

The former Vuelta winner is another rider whose build-up has been disrupted by injury, but with Mikel Landa and Jan Hirt to assist him in the mountains, the team should put up a decent show if Evenepoel shines in the time trials.

Movistar team

Latest Odds - 33/1

Movistar dropped from fifth in the team standings in 2022 to 10th last year and the Spanish squad are led by one of their own in Enric Mas, who can boast two top-six finishes in the Tour and two runners-up spots in the Vuelta. 

He has never quite fulfilled the potential he was thought to have as a young rider, though, and his team are unlikely to challenge the big guns this year.
