While Cadel Evans remains the punters choice to win the 2012 Tour de France, Australian team GreenEdge has been opened as a $501 outsider with online bookmaker to take out the overall Team Classification.

Garmin Barracuda, Radioshack Nissan and Sky Procycling have been installed as joint favourites at $4.95 with Rabobank and Movistar next in the market at $7.40.

Evans’ BMC team have been opened as a $176 chance.

“The market suggests it could be a real uphill battle for GreenEdge in their debut Tour de France,”’s Ben Hawes said.

“They sit on the last line of betting with Saxo Bank and Argos Shimano at $501.”

Evans continues to attract the punters interest and has now attracted 8 times the amount of money to that of favourite Brad Wiggins ($2.20).
