Our football tipster has put together four ante-post League One predictions for the new season including a top half finish tip and two League One relegation betting tips.
League One looks extremely competitive this year but there is still money to be made! We’ve picked out some of the best football betting tips from the various markets available along with the best odds and reasons for each bet.
Blackburn Top Northwest Club – 11/8 with Bet365.
Blackburn have recruited well this summer with Peter Whittingham the standout addition. Ben Gladwin and Bradley Dack have been terrific at this level previously and their midfield looks extremely strong. Dominic Samuel has been added to the squad and joins Danny Graham and Anthony Stokes in a strong looking Blackburn forward line. Tony Mowbray improved the side since taking over and he should be able to lead this strong Rovers side back to the Championship at the first time of asking. Wigan, Fleetwood and Rochdale will be able to finish in the top half but they shouldn’t overhaul Rovers in this betting market.
Rochdale to Finish in the Top Half – 11/8 with Bet Victor.
Keith Hill should be able to lead his side to another top half finish this season despite the loss of some key players. They finished 9th last season and will be expected to achieve a similar outcome this time around. They may have lost Nathaniel Mendez Laing and Matty Lund but they’ve added Jordan Williams from Barrow and Bradden Inman to their side and they are a hugely underrated side. They could take advantage of some underachieving sides in the division with Hill a savvy operator who is bound to get the best out of his side.

Walsall to be Relegated – 3/1 with Betfred.
Gillingham to be Relegated – 5/2 with Unibet.
These two sides are likely to struggle this season with Walsall seemingly going backwards. Jon Whitney’s tactics have been called into question and they look very light up front with just Amadou Bakayokou and Simeon Jackson their two main options. Ehrun Oztumer remains with the club but has been linked with a move away from the club and they can’t rely on loanee Jason McCarthy who has joined Barnsley. Gillingham only just survived last season and they’ve kept faith with Ady Pennock. The additions have been mixed with Connor Wilkinson Alex Lacey decent but the jury is out on Gabriel Zakuani and Tom Eaves. They could lose Josh Wright before the window closes and the Kent side could be in trouble this year.
