League One

As has been the case in frequent seasons the League one outright market is headed by a big club that has dropped out of the Championship, here former Premier League winners Blackburn Rovers who understandably enough have been installed as favourites for the league one title this season

The head of the outright market is as follows, with the best prices available:

Blackburn 9-2
Wigan 8-1
Portsmouth 9-1
Bradford 10-1
MK Dons 16-1
Charlton 16-1
Oxford 16-1
Scunthorpe 20-1
Bristol Rovers 20-1

Each way terms one quarter the odds three places

My preference here is to back Bradford City each way. Bradford have lost in the division play offs for the past two years and should be positioned to challenge for automatic promotion this year. Compared to sides around them, remembering this is a division with only four sides below 16-1 to win it, they are well positioned. Wigan need to rebuild and Portsmouth are a big club but just promoted into the division

Apart from Bradford,a couple of longer priced fancies in the “to be promoted” market. Fleetwood were in the play offs last year and are 10-1 to be promoted this which looks to high. Rotherham struggled in the Championship but with an experienced squad are also 10-1 for promotion. Both sides should be challenging in the top ten.

League Two

The top of the outright market looks as follows:

Mansfield Town 6-1
Luton Town 8-1
Coventry City 10-1
Lincoln City 12-1
Swindon Town 14-1
Exeter City 16-1
Notts County 16-1
Cambridge United 16-1
Carlisle United 20-1

Each way terms one quarter the odds three places

Again this is a wide open division. Lincoln earned over £1m from their FA Cup run to the quarter finals last season via prize money and TV revenue, and were promoted from the Conference

They have begin to put thatmoney to use, signing Mansfield’s main striker and a league one midfielder from Peterborough with 190 games in that division

Mansfield are 6/1 to win the division. Lincoln 12-1. We could see Lincoln going straight through this division with that budget? Plenty of teams have done in the past,such as Crawly Town and Fleetwood as it is a level where differentials in budget make a big difference.

Portsmouth and Plymouth have left the division. Lincoln City each way looks a very solid bet to me at a general 12-1
