League Two Betting Preview 2011/12
The battle for the top spots in the 2010-2011 was a tight one which was eventually won by champions Chesterfield, followed closely by Bury, Wycombe and in the play-offs a little further off Stevenage. This time around it looks set to just as open a race as the last term with a number of teams vying for promotion to League 1.
League two winner odds
Shrewsbury had an unlucky time in the play-offs last season after a season where they were comfortably one of the top teams in the league. They played good passing football and were unlucky to miss out on going up through the play-offs, meaning that this time around they are going to be firing on all cylinders and raring to mount a title challenge, so with odds of 15.0 on bet365 for them to finish top this season, it could be well worth a look.
Relegated Dagenham and Redbridge know how to win this league having done it in the 2009-2010 campaign, a final day of the season defeat to promoted Peterborough sent them back to League 2 on the first time of asking though. They may have lost top scoring pacy winger Danny Green to Charlton, but the core of their side remain, with club captain Mark Arber already a stalwart at this level marshalling the solid Daggers defence for the back. They stand a good chance of bouncing straight back and this is reflected in their handsome odds of 34.0 on Bet365 to win the league for the 2nd time 3 years.
Newly appointed Paulo Di Canio’s Swindon will also be up there fighting for the top spot, and under the management of one of footballs most talented and outspoken individuals they should provide a lot of life for League 2 next season. They are 2nd favourites to win the division and with good odds of 11.0 with William Hill they could be a prudent investment.
Newly promoted Crawley though are the firm favourites for the title, being the Manchester City of non league football last year they have brought their sizeable budget into league football and look ready to take the leagues by storm, they are short in the odds with 4.0 on Bet365 but as favourites with that much cash they are the ones to watch next season.
