Fabian Cancellara (Trek-Segafredo) is the bookies' favourite to win a fourth Tour of Flanders title, with many online bookmakers having him as low as 3/1.

The Swiss great is closely followed by Peter Sagan in the odds list, with the world champion available at 9/2 (PaddyPower) after his win at Ghent-Wevelgem last weekend.

There are some great odds to be had if you're of the gambling inclination, so here are a few of the best riders to back for the 100th Tour of Flanders on April 3.

Most of the big online bookies offer each-way bets on the top three riders at 1/4 odds, although Totesport, SkyBet, PaddyPower and Coral extend that to the first four places.

Peter Sagan: 9/2 (PaddyPower)

Greg Van Avermaet: 10/1 (BoyleSports)

Alexander Kristoff: 11/1 (BoyleSports)
