Just because you're from the Netherlands you think you know it all?
No, it's because the nonsense I read here. Just from this thread only:
Just the two plays for the outright.
9.5 units Evans over Valverde @ $1.91
.5 units Gerdemann to win @ $41
Valverde may be in good form and not racing next month, but Evans creams him in the the time trial. Evans will come runner up again. Though Valverde will be determined, I can't see him featuring top 2 and Evans will come runner up.
How can you state the above, regarding Valverde owned Evans in the TT's last year here (which he indeed didn't do this year), and go against someone who most probably isn't allowed to ride the Tour, taking someone who is here to finetune his form and see where it gets him.
Gerdemann is in good form. A handy price for a handy rider.
Great price indeed for someone who was never gonna take part here, 0,5 units down the drain before the race even started.
5 units Devolder over Cobo @ $2.13
An interest bet to say the least. A reasonable sum of money on him too. Devolder should be too good for Cobo one would suspect. Devolder is the better climber and better time trialist. Quick Step have been quiet of late and with the Boonen troubles, I expect Stijn to deliver the goods.
Devolder states that he is here to train and that he won't be going for the GC and you come up with this? Against someone who isn't racing even.
fuck me evans is in some fine form.
5 units Boonen @ $2.15 - should be straightforward. He only has chavanel, steegmens and vaitkus to contend with.
probably my last play on Dauphine. I'm eagerly awaiting Switzerland.
Taking Boonen around evens here while on his first stage since Paris-Roubaix and the whole coke-thing afterwards (of which he is probably cleared now by the way).
7 units contador up ventoux.
While you state earlier Contador might be here to prepare himself for July, you're throwing 7 units on him here, while he even showed in the TT's his form wasn't where it should be to win?
Regarding the prologue.
1 unit play on Martin @ $5 - fade Cancellara at all costs.
Why fading Cancellara who rides his home Tour here and stated in all media - even his homepage - that he was back to his old form again? More important: why taking Martin to win this thing?
Stage 1 - Can't see why I can't double up my units.
6 units on Tony Martin top 3 @ $2.20
Yes, why not? Martin has been a machine in short TT's hasn't he?
Fuck, this is turning to be shit.
Anyway the Swiss stage tonight.
3 units Kreuziger top 3 @ $4.20
Taking Kreuziger for a podium finish in a semi-sprinter stage, you can rather give your money to the poor if you want to get rid of it.
Stage 4 in Dauphine
Too much for the sprinters to handle. An outside category and another climb less than 50km from the end.
Wrong again. Would have been a sprint finish if it weren't for all the teams (except Rabobank) present in the break.
Okay - It's time Kreuziger makes his move.
2.5 units Kreuziger to win @ $8.50
.5 units Gerdemenn to win @ $41
3 units - Kirchen @ $1.87 over A Schleck
5 units - Kreuziger @ $1.76 over F Schleck
5 units - Gerdemann @ $1.71 over Hesjedal
2 units - Martin @ $2.10 over Cancellara
Kreuziger is here to win. Gerdemann should be too strong for the climber. Martin will be too strong for Cancellara and Kirchen should be too strong for A Schleck! A Schleck is here for Tour de France prep only. He's done what he needs to do. Frank is here to win so Schleck will take it easy. Kirchen needs to prove to Team Columbia he's strong enough to lead them in July.
Are you obsessed by Kreuziger? Why would he make his move here with the last 3 kilometers being nearly flat and the climbs not hard/long enough to create a decent gap?
You have come in here and criticised someone when you don't have the balls to post plays?
Bring it on bitch!
Tour de France challenge. Right here!
Ok for me. My profit of +184 units over the last two Tour de Frances (live-bets excluded) makes me confident enough to take on the challenge. But since this thread is about the Dauphiné, Suisse and the nationals I'll update this thread with my bets for these races:
