According to the latest odds from William Hill, Chris Froome is favourite to win this year's Tour de France.

The bookmaker puts Alberto Contador as a close second, at 23/10, to win Le Tour, which gets underway tomorrow in Corsica.

It'll be a Froome/Contador battle, says William Hill, with third favourite Joaquim Rodriguez only at 18/1 to win the 100th edition of the race.

The Green Jersey sees Mark Cavendish (11/10) close behind Petr Sagan (17/20). Cavendish has 26 stage wins to his name and William Hill make him even money to win at least another five during this year’s race.
