|I've heard there's a place in Atlantic
City or was it Las Vegas where you can bet on anything.
I want to see the odds
Lance by 00:02:00 any takers?

|Go to Yahoo. Click on the article about the tour in the highlighted "headlines" section on the right of the front page. It will take you to a "sports" page with headings across the top, one of which is "bettting." Click there.
BTW, Lance is 1 to 4 to win, de Galdeano is 13 to 2 against.

|Last year, I visited my favorite online betting sites but didn't find any places to drop bets on the Tour. Good thing, because I was convinced Ullrich was going to win it. I'm not placing any bets this year, but I'd say Armstrong is even money.|
|That makes Lance a bad bet . . .||LAIrish|

|I agree that he is probably even money to win the Tour. But the odds have him at one to four. (I.e., you bet $4 to win $1.) There is just too much that can go wrong in a GT (crashes, equipment failure, food poisoning, etc.) to make that a good bet no matter how superior a rider is.|

|I did bet on the Tour. My bet is that 2 Americans will finish in the top 5. The Lance bet doesn't pay enough.|
|What's the odds Vaughters will finish?||js5280|

|Might be some money to be made there? Poor guy, he's a Coloradan so I'd love to see him finish. Definately not Credit Agricole's year this year.
