Wigan v Gillingham

Gillingham to win – 6/4 with Bet365.

With a whole load of off the field problems Wigan’s on the field problems continued, they first got dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Fleetwood and followed that up with a 2-0 away defeat to Ipswich in their League One opener. Gillingham were defeated 2-0 at home by Hull City in their first game of league, Steve Evans will be looking for an immediate reaction from his players. Wigan have had to sell the majority of their star players and with a lot of uncertainty still surrounding the club except Gillingham to take advantage and collect the 3 points.


Hull City v Crewe

Hull City to Win and BTTS – 3/1 with Bet365.

Hull have seen an upturn in fortune in their last two fixtures, they first started off their league campaign with a brilliant 2-0 away win at Gillingham, and followed that up with a shock win over Premier League side Leeds Utd in the Carabao Cup. Crewe got a welcome to life in League One with a 2-0 defeat at home to Charlton in their first game and expect them to find further difficulties when they travel to in-form Hull on Saturday. Hull have some momentum at the moment, expect them to continue their form against newly promoted Crewe.


Mk Dons vs Lincoln

BTTS and Over 2.5 goals – 7/5 with Bet365.

Lincoln are flying at the moment, they got their League One campaign off to a winning start with a 2-0 win over Oxford Utd and followed that up with a superb 5-0 win away at Bradford in the Carabao cup. Mk Dons rescued a point with a late equaliser against Doncaster away in their first game of League One and will be happy to get back on home soil where they defeated Northampton 3-1 in the first round of the Carabao cup. The last 5 times these sides have met have seen both teams score in 4 out of the 5 games, expect the same again on Saturday especially the fine goal scoring form Lincoln are currently in.


Oxford v Sunderland

Draw – 11/5 with Bet365.

In what is a do or die season for Sunderland it didn’t get off to the greatest of starts for the Black Cats, they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Bristol Rovers and now face a tricky trip to Oxford on Saturday. Oxford Utd started with an opening day 2-0 defeat away to Lincoln and will now be glad to be back at the Kassam Stadium, a place where they only lost 3 times last season. Sunderland definitely have more quality within their locker but will be in for a tough afternoon against a tough Oxford side at home, expect the sides not to be separated after 90 minutes.


Blackpool vs Swindon

Swindon to score over 1.5 goals – 2/1 with Bet365.

Swindon have adjusted to life back in League One superbly, they defeated Rochdale 3-1 at home and now travel to Blackpool for their second league match. Blackpool have struggled to get out of League One and are now considered as main stays in this division, their campaign got off to a losing start when they were defeated 1-0 by Plymouth argyle. Swindon may surprise a few people in this game, a game where they are quite big outsiders, they have the momentum and confidence to go and get the 3 points.

Below you’ll find our betting tips for League One this weekend and all the latest League One previews.


Sky Bet League One Previews

There are lots of different markets you can bet on when thinking about betting tips for the third tier of English football, and some of the odds for the outright markets can be found below. We will keep these updated as the 2019/20 season goes on. Be sure to keep checking back to this page for our weekend League One predictions and when there is a full fixture list of midweek matches, our team of Football League tipsters will have that covered too.

Our League One football predictions will always be well researched and in each match preview, there will be two of three betting tips, depending on the fixture. There will also be a football accumulator tip specific to EPL League One meaning you could bet on that too.


League One Winner 2019/20 Odds

League One is going to be a highly fought league next season. With the arrival of Rotherham, Bolton and Ipswich in the division from the Championship, they’ll be looking to bounce back, with Sunderland, Portsmouth and Peterborough also desperate for a life back in the second tier.

The Black Cats are the favourites to win the league at 7/2 with Betfred, ahead of newly relegated Ipswich priced at 6/1.

The full list of favourites with Betfred is:

Sunderland: 7/2

Ipswich: 6/1

Portsmouth: 7/1

Peterborough: 10/1

Rotherham: 10/1

Doncaster: 16/1

Lincoln: 16/1

Burton: 20/1

Fleetwood: 25/1

League One Winner Prediction

The League One summit looks fairly trappy this season, with serious question marks over all of the frontrunners. SUNDERLAND lead the way in the betting, but Jack Ross’ system still doesn’t seem quite right, and there is a significant expectation placed upon them. They seemed unable to take it up another gear in the Play-Off final, and although I expect them to challenge for promotion, I have my doubts about whether they can secure the League One title.

Rotherham losing both Will Vaulks and Semi Ajayi is a significant blow, although they will play with bundles of spirit under Paul Warne. I have my doubts over Darren Ferguson, and although I really like the look of their squad this campaign, I don’t think the Posh have what it takes to finish top of the pile.

Portsmouth could be the side to back in this market with the experienced Kenny Jackett at the helm. They’ve recently lost Jamal Lowe, but they’ve moved quickly to reinvest that money in Marcus Harness. The former Burton man is still developing his game and can play at a higher level. They’ve also added the impressive Sean Raggett on loan whilst James Bolton and Ellis Harrison should both be effective at this level. Losing Matt Clarke is far from ideal, but the aforementioned Raggett and Paul Downing add serious competition in that area.

Portsmouth have a decent squad and a good manager in charge. They were fairly unlucky last season not to go further in the playoffs, but they may be the best option in a fairly unconvincing crop of title contenders.

League One Winners –Portsmouth – 15/2 with Betway.


League One Promotion Betting Tips

Many may be surprised to see that Joey Barton is still in charge at Highbury, particularly after his dust-up with Daniel Stendel in April. The Scouser has been charged, yet he remains in the dugout. Although that may have overshadowed FLEETWOOD’S form last season, it’s hard to ignore the Cod Army’s summer business.

Lewie Coyle returns to the Fylde Coast, whilst Scunthorpe’s Josh Morris also arrives in Lancashire. He’s a creative force, who has struggled in a poor side over the last couple of seasons, but if he can get back to his best, he can be one of the most effective players in the division. However, the most eye-catching arrival is Paul Coutts. The play-maker is an excellent addition and has been superb at both this level and in the Championship. He could make a huge difference. Danny Andrew and Jordan Rossiter are two more superb additions to an already talented squad.

With the likes of Morris, Coutts and Rossiter providing service for Ched Evans and Paddy Madden, it is potentially mouth-watering stuff for Fleetwood fans.

If Barton can keep a lid on it, and avoid off-the-field distractions, Fleetwood could be a force to be reckoned with.

League One Promotion – Fleetwood – 9/1 with Bet Victor.

[global_advert id=”37950″]


English League One 2019/20 Top 6 Odds

While two teams will enjoy automatic promotion, four will have to settle for a place in the playoffs where they’ll look to grab the remaining promotion spot.

Sunderland are naturally hugely tipped to do, with the likes of MK Dons and Fleetwood the best value for a bet, both at 3/1.

The current odds on a top-six finish in League One are:

Sunderland: 2/5

Ipswich: 4/6

Portsmouth: 4/5

Peterborough: 11/10

Rotherham: 6/5

Doncaster: 2/1

Lincoln: 2/1

Burton: 11/4

Coventry: 11/4

MK Dons: 3/1

Fleetwood: 3/1

Oxford: 3/1

Blackpool: 9/2


Sky Bet League One Top 6 Finish Betting Tip

I was quite impressed with Mark Robins’ work at COVENTRY last season, and despite being homeless this campaign, I do expect the Sky Blues to have a decent season. Burton would be my other fancy in this market, but Robins’ men are a slightly bigger price and are given the nod.

They worked the loan market superbly last season, and I expect another few youngsters to join before the season gets underway. They moved quickly to wrap up Kyle McFadzean, and the addition of former Burton team-mate Jamie Allen is a great bit of business. Marko Marosi will provide stability between the sticks, whilst Fankaty Dabo could be absolutely anything! They look well-stocked at the back whilst the likes of Jordan Shipley and Tom Bayliss remain at the club for now.

He may be still on the treatment table, but Jodi Jones will be returning at some point, and he is a real livewire. This young squad clearly buy into Robins’ philosophy, and they are likely to have another good season.

They weren’t far away from making the top six last season, and they should be able to kick on once again.

Top Six Finish – Coventry – 10/3 with Bet365.


League One 2019/20 Relegation Odds

There are a number of teams with huge problems which could make relegation an intense battle.

Bury are favourites to face the drop following their promotion last season. They’re facing huge financial problems, which will undoubtedly make their first season back in League One even more of a struggle.

The likes of Bolton could also struggle, while Accrington, Gillingham and AFC Wimbledon will also be fighting to avoid the drop.

Paddy Power are currently offering the following odds on League One relegation:

Bury: 1/2

Bolton: 15/8

Gillingham: 13/5

Accrington: 13/5

AFC Wimbledon: 11/4

Wycombe: 3/1

Tranmere: 4/1

Shrewsbury: 4/1

[global_advert id=”37955″]


League One Relegation Betting Tips

The League One relegation market is slightly skewed by the fact that the future of Bury is still in doubt. Bolton are also far from secure and have fewer than ten players in their squad at the time of writing. However, they do have some decent trialists, and may just cobble together a decent enough squad to survive (even with the deduction).

Even if the two North West clubs drop, that still leaves two places to avoid, and there should be another competitive scramble for safety come May.

ROCHDALE are a club who have managed to avoid dropping down to League Two recently, and there’s undeniably a spirit about them, however, this could be the year that they fall. I like them as a club, and I’d prefer to see them stay up, but they cannot keep relying upon Ian Henderson.

They haven’t done much business, having avoided losing too many players, but the lack of additions is a worry. Rekeil Pyke might prove to be a prolific frontman, but they could do with some more creativity in the centre of the park.

Brian Barry-Murphy did superbly well when he took over from Keith Hill, but his success was largely based on keeping things tight. They look the weakest of the teams that survived last season, and they could fill one of those dreaded relegation spots this season.

League One Relegation – Rochdale – 4/1 with 888Sport.


League One Top Scorer Odds

Last year’s Top Scorer, James Collins bagged 25 goals last term, ahead of Charlton’s Lyle Taylor with 22. Both the Luton striker and Taylor will be plying their trade in the league above, so John Marquis of Doncaster will certainly fancy his chances after falling just a few goals short.

Sunderland’s Will Grigg might have something to say about that, although the transfer window will also play a huge part.

Tom Eaves netted 21 for Gillingham last season and will provide good value, while Iain Henderson of Rochdale could be a good outside bet.


League One Top Goalscorer Betting Tips 2019/20

Although it’s perfectly understandable to see James Norwood at the top of the betting, I do believe it’s best to look elsewhere in the top goalscorer market.

At a bigger price, PADDY MADDEN (19 last season) could be a decent prospect at 40/1 if he can consistently produce the goods over an entire campaign. He was lethal in the 1st half of the season, but the goals dried up post-Christmas. He is worthy of an each-way bet.

STEPHEN HUMPHRYS could also be another option at tempting odds. The former Fulham man was unlucky with injuries last season, but he still managed a 50% strike rate in a Southend shirt (5 in 10) and could be the man to help fire the Shrimpers up the table. Kevin Bond’s men should be better equipped this season, and the injuries have subsided. He’s always found the net at this level, and he could be a man to follow this campaign.

Top Goalscorers:

Paddy Madden (each-way) – 40/1 with Bet Victor.

Stephen Humphrys (each-way) – 40/1 with Bet365.


League One Betting Guide

Luton Town continues their meteoric resurrection last season in League One to catapult themselves into the second tier of English football for the first time since 2007. That feat was just a number of memorable moments in 2018/19 and we can expect another huge year in 2019/20.

The number of big clubs in League One this season is phenomenal, and it could prove male or break for a number as they look to work their way back up the divisions.
