Have you taken the time to check out the latest La Vuelta odds for the 2023 Grand Tour event yet? If not, don’t worry, for I shall be covering the odds for top contenders prior to this magnificent tour kicking off. On that note, as a friendly reminder, the 2023 La Vuelta event is scheduled to begin on August 26th, which is in just a couple of days’ time (at the time of writing). And in line with the 2023 La Vuelta schedule, a series of races will then be held over the course of a three week period until we reach a conclusion on September 17th.
During that three-week period, you can engage in plenty of La Vuelta betting if you so please. Yet before this Grand Tour begins, I wanted to share some La Vuelta predictions as to who the eventual winner will be. In making these bets before the tour starts, you can lock in better odds than you can in the middle of La Vuelta – depending on who you are backing!
So taking that into account, let me now cover the 2023 La Vuelta odds, key contenders, and most likely winner.
2023 La Vuelta betting – a quick guide
Over a period of three weeks, a total of 22 teams will all be competing for a chance of winning La Vuelta. Naturally, not all of these 22 teams have an equal chance of winning, but they will all try their best – that I am 100% sure of! Such competitiveness will pave the way for some serious twists and turns as the competitors take part in 21 stages in total. Yet ultimately, as I’m sure you are aware, there will only be one winner. This means there will be one man left standing above the rest after completing close to 2,000 miles over the course of three weeks.
Needless to say, La Vuelta isn’t for the faint of heart, and the winner will need to go through plenty of pain to get the win. And when thinking of possible La Vuelta winners, it’s impossible to deny that Jumbo-Visma has the strongest team. These guys have the recent Tour De France champion, Jonas Vingegaard in their ranks, yet they also have Primoz Roglic – a three-time La Vuelta winner.
However, it’s not like Jumbo Visma is guaranteed to win La Vuelta 2023, not by any means. In fact, when reading through the La Vuelta odds for a few race favorites below, you’ll see that it could be a very close event.
La Vuelta odds for key contenders
Rather than hitting you with La Vuelta odds for every single guy in the event, which wouldn’t be the best use of anyone’s time, I will focus on the top five favorites. After all, these are the guys who are most likely to be standing on top of the podium come September 17th. So on that note, let me reveal the top five contenders and their respective La Vuelta odds right now:
- Jonas Vingegaard – 5/4 odds
- Primoz Roglic – 5/2 odds
- Remco Evenepoel – 4/1 odds
- Juan Ayuso – 8/1 odds
- Geraint Thomas – 16/1 odds
As you can see, the odds for the top two favorites both relate to Jumbo Visma riders. However, while these two top the list, last year’s winner, Remco Evenepoel, is a close third. As for the guys in 4th and 5th place in terms of the favorites, it’s Juan Ayuso of UAE Team Emirates and Geraint Thomas of IENOS Grenadiers, respectively.
Thomas has previously won the Tour de France in 2018, yet he has never won La Vuelta. As for Juan Ayuso, he was 3rd in La Vuelta 2022, so he is a potential threat too.
2023 La Vuelta tips and predictions
Although each of these top five guys has a realistic shot of winning La Vuelta 2023, there is one guy who I feel boasts the ‘value play’ when looking at the current La Vuelta odds. Therefore, when it comes to my La Vuelta predictions, I have to go with the following rider to win La Vuelta 2023:
Remco Evenepoel – 4/1 odds
At just 23 years of age, it’s impressive that Remco Evenepoel has already managed to win La Vuelta, and he did so in 2022. In fact, he produced some truly incredible performances to win the event by over 2 minutes. Therefore, Remco Evenepoel is the defending champion, which always bodes well. Adding to that, he won two stages in the Giro d’Italia back in May 2023, and he was leading the GC for the entire first week. As for the 2023 Tour de France, since he didn’t take part, he should be fresh and ready to defend his crown in the 2023 La Vuelta.
In contrast, it remains to be seen whether Vingegaard has recovered from his Tour de France exploits, which is why Roglic will likely be the main challenger to Evenepoel, in my opinion.
