Sunderland failed to bounce straight back into the Championship last season, losing in the playoff final to Charlton. Ipswich join them from the Championship this year, adding another team that was once flying high in the Premier League.
There are currently six teams in the division that are former Premier League sides, and there are a number more with ambitions of being there, or at the very least the second tier of English football.
League One Outright Winner 2019/20 OddsIt’s perhaps no surprise to see the big hitters are among the favourites to win League One in 2019/20 with Sunderland, Ipswich and Portsmouth leading the charge according to the bookies.
Rotherham look good for an outside bet with Paddy Power at 9/1 alongside Peterborough (10/1) and Doncaster (16/1).
Few will look past the Black Cats given the disappointment of last season, but it’s still well worth exploring the market:
The full odds for the League One Winner with Paddy Power are:
- Sunderland: 10/3
- Ipswich: 6/1
- Portsmouth: 13/2
- Rotherham: 9/1
- Peterborough: 10/1
- Doncaster: 16/1
- Lincoln: 16/1
- Burton: 16/1
League One Promotion 2019/20 OddsLeague One promotion odds follow a very similar pattern with the big three the most likely candidates to be playing Championship football next term.
Again Sunderland are favourites according to William Hill, although you might find it’d be worth a free bet on the likes of Lincoln (5/1) and Fleetwood (11/2), the former doing wonders under the Cowley brothers.
The full list of League One promotion odds with William Hill are as follows:
- Sunderland: 11/8
- Ipswich: 2/1
- Portsmouth: 11/4
- Peterborough: 3/1
- Rotherham: 3/1
- Lincoln: 5/1
- Fleetwood: 11/2
- Doncaster: 11/2
- Coventry: 6/1
- Oxford: 6/1
- Burton: 6/1
- Blackpool: 8/1
League One Top 6 OddsThe top six is a main goal for many clubs with their eyes on promotion, with positions three to six sealing an extra chance to go up via the playoffs.
Outside of Ipswich, Sunderland and Portsmouth, Burton could be a good price to take with Bet365 at 3/1, while Blackpool at 9/2 could also be a good punt given Oyston is now finally out.
The full odds with the bookmaker are as follows:
- Sunderland: 2/5
- Ipswich: 4/7
- Portsmouth: 10/11
- Rotherham: 6/5
- Peterborough: 6/5
- Fleetwood: 15/8
- Doncaster: 9/4
- Lincoln: 5/2
- Burton: 3/1
- Oxford: 3/1
- MK Dons: 10/3
- Coventry: 10/3
- Gillingham: 4/1
- Blackpool: 9/2
League One Relegation 2019/20 OddsThere are some teams with a lot of problems in League One this season which could seal the fate of a number of clubs early. Both Bolton and newly promoted Bury are in real danger of survival running away from them, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see them both heavily tipped for the drop.
Bury are 1/4 favourites with William Hill, while Bolton look likely too at 6/5. Wycombe and Accrington are also expected to struggle, while an outside bet may be with Tranmere after losing their star striker James Norwood to Ipswich.
William Hill are currently pricing the League One relegation market as follows:
- Bury: 1/4
- Bolton: 6/5
- Wycombe: 3/1
- Accrington: 3/1
- AFC Wimbledon: 7/2
- Gillingham: 4/1
- Shrewsbury: 4/1
- Tranmere: 4/1
- Rochdale: 4/1
- Southend: 4/1
