28   Ray10   598 (Van Aert, Buchmann)
29   Josedin   539 (Alaphilippe, Coquard, Buchmann: no Dumoulin)
30   ChrisDK   536 (Van Aert, Chaves)
   Collective_Wisdom   1330 (Bernal, Buchmann and 80% of Bol, Bardet and Uran)

Some observations:
Van Aert is very impressive in the race, but the three teams that chose him here are in the bottom five.
Dumoulin was almost ubiquitous, and although he has moved from option B to last mountain dom, he is still getting a good return on the low cost, and the teams that lack him are among the bottom 5.
Pinot was almost as popular as Dumoulin, but a lot more expensive and underachieving: not going for him if it was in the interests of being able to afford both Bernal and Roglic was a wise move (at this stage), otherwise those who eschewed him did not invest any better (Sagan, Martinez, Nizzolo...)
Comodoro's lowest scoring rider is 64 pointer Pinot
Of the riders who have withdrawn, Cras was on one team (Otoxiep87), Degenkolb and Aru on two each (Armchair and Shalgo, Googolplex and TRiley) and Nizzolo, by far the most expensive DNF on three (ChrisDK, DJSprtsch and Laarsland).  I haven't removed Pozzovivo's projected points yet, as he will only become a DNS at the start of stage 10, but those who suffer will be Laarsland (again), Mellow Velo and Pirate81.
Jumbo-Visma, the only team that are overbudget, have a cumulative score of 1257, AG2R are 2nd with 730, Ineos have 728, followed by Cofidis (625) and Trek (575).

And if there are any other numbers to investigate, they are here.
