Odds on Who’s Getting Promoted or Relegated from League 1 this Season

League One is a hugely competitive competition that has shown us some of the best matches in the English Football League over the years, as teams battle it out for promotion or to avoid the dreaded relegation. These are the current odds from on who will be rising to the top and battling it out for punters looking to take part in a spot of football betting on the teams likely to move.


The favourites for the League One title is currently Sunderland, who will either make an automatic return to the Championship next season or go through the gruelling play-off process. Either way, their supporters are hopeful for success and there have been changes within the club to facilitate that. Currently, the club has odds of 3/1 to win the title and Jack Ross has been making additions to the squad in the form of Reece James, Jerome Sinclair and Chris Maguire.

Another team with great chances of enjoying life at the top of the table is Barnsley who are in great shape at the moment and are keen to return after being relegated on the final day of the Championship last season. On paper, the club has a great squad and some really talented players on their side, with the likes of Brad Potts and Cameron McGeehan standing out. Barnsley have been quiet in terms of transfer activity so movements in the coming weeks are to be expected, but they remain strong contenders for promotion.

There are strong expectations that Portsmouth will be joining Sunderland for the fight for automatic promotion. Last season they finished 8th, just missing out on a spot to prove themselves in the play-offs but this time around they’re in great shape to succeed. The squad has brought in plenty of talent, from Lee Brown to Tom Naylor, which has strengthened an already quality squad.


After finishing in 18th place in the last season of League One, Wimbledon have struggled to bring themselves back up to a safe spot in the table. Since Neal Ardley ended a six-year stay back in November, and Wally Downes took over, the club has had just two league wins and are currently priced at 1/14 for the drop.

Similarly, Bradford have had a hard time this season, winning just three of 16 games away from home and just six home wins. There are some tough matches ahead, with the suggestion that Bradford are in danger of dropping down. They’re at position 23 at the moment, so it will take some serious playing on their part to stay in with a chance of dodging League Two.

Last season, Rochdale were hanging on by a thread and only just avoided relegation, but it seems as though the squad will be praying for another miracle if they’re to survive again. The team haven’t been on good form of late and odds are 13/8 for them to go down this season.
