League Two relegation betting preview 2011/12
Stockport were last seasons horror story, as their finances collapsed they were left propping up the football league for the majority of the season and were relegated into non-league obscurity. Lincoln City joined them after a tense final day of the season where they were beaten 3-0 by Aldershot while Barnet managed to scrape a 1-0 victory condemning the Imps to the drop.
League 2 relegation odds
This season though Barnet are sure to again be dicing with the drop, unless they make some pretty serious improvements on last year it could be the same tense last day for the fans at Underhill. With odds of 4.5 on William Hill they are definitely one of the favourites for the drop and could provide good value if they do.
Plymouth seem to be on a constantly downwards spiral, after relegation from the Championship they suffered a similar fate in league 1 after they were forced to sell star assets to stay solvent. Top scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips was sold to league rivals Charlton and from then on it was a downward spiral, which culminated in a point’s deduction leaving them rock bottom at the seasons close. This season the money crisis hasn’t sorted itself out yet and players are still waiting on wages, unpaid players, make poor performers on the pitch and if this continues Argyle could be dicing with the drop for the third season running, with odds of 11.0 on William Hill they are relative outsiders so if they do meet the drop they could prove to be a sizeable investment.
Hereford had a shaky season last year and found it difficult away from home especially and if this poor form continues into the new season they could very well be teetering on the brink of the league again, having spent a lot of last season rock bottom of League 2. A few new faces have been brought in though, however if you don’t think that will be enough to save the Bulls then why not have a gamble with odds of 6.0 on Bet365 for them to meet the drop.
Newly promoted AFC Wimbledon will have high hopes that their first season in the football league will be a comfortable one, however the step up from non-league is a big one and they may not have the luck Stevenage found this season. With long odds of 15.0 on William Hill they could be worth backing for the drop with a few quid.
