League Two Predictions & Betting Tips

League Two may not be the most glamorous league in the world – but that’s not to say it isn’t among the most exciting! With a mixture of ambitious, financially backed clubs looking to hit the big time, former Premier League giants that have fallen on hard times and traditional lower-league clubs desperate to avoid the drop into non-league, there is so much riding on the English fourth tier each and every season.

Unlike the Championship and League One, three teams are automatically promoted from League Two, with a fourth going up via the play-offs. This year it was Forest Green Rovers sealing top spot in League Two, leapfrogging Exeter City on the final day – though the Grecians will join them in the third tier.

Bristol Rovers completed the top three after a bizarre final day of the season where they overcame a five-goal difference swing with a 7-0 victory and Port Vale joined that trio in League One for 2022/23 after their victory in the play-offs, beating Mansfield 3-0 at Wembley.

Who will be the fab four going up this coming season? And who will be relegated out of the Football League?

League Two Inplay betting tips

There are plenty of opportunities for League Two inplay betting nowadays. Whilst placing a mid-match bet used to be very difficult and in some cases limited only to certain matches, it now appears that the vast majority of games across the world are available to bet on as the action unfolds and the English fourth tier is in no way exempt from this, with live, in-play odds available on almost every single Football League match across a 46-game campaign.

Inplay betting has become so popular as it allows a punter to see how the game is progressing and developing and place their bets in relation to that, rather than predicting before kick-off what is going to happen. Some of the most popular In Play bets in League Two include Next Team To Score, Next Player To Score and the Full-Time Result – the latter being particularly useful if you envisage a big comeback after a team have made a slow start for example.

Full Time Results

This remains the most popular way to bet on any football match. All you’re doing with a Full Time Result bet is betting on which team will win the game – or whether it will end in a draw. This is sometimes known as a ‘Match Outcome’ bet or is referred to as the ‘Win-Draw-Win’ market, but the bet you’re placing remains the same.

Of course, you can now combine your Result bet with a different bet for every longer odds and sometimes better value with bookmakers like 888sport. For example you can back a team to win and over 2.5 goals being scored in the match. You can also back the correct scoreline for some much longer odds.

Both Teams to Score

Much like Full Time Result bets, Both Team to Score bets have become very popular with multiple backers in recent years. The reason for this is that the bet can ride all the way until full-time – a couple of last minute goals are never out of reach.

For the best League Two BTTS bets, you need to check which teams are the highest-scoring and the highest-conceding in the division. Swindon Town were the team to watch in this market last season, with no fewer than 65% of their league fixtures seeing both teams find the net.

Sky Bet are not the sponsors of the Football League without good reason and they offer some of the best odds within these kind of markets on League Two.

BTTS & Win

Of course, much like with the Match Result and Over 2.5 goals bets, you can also combine a both teams to score bet with a full-time result bet, which can offer excellent value for the punter if both teams involved in a match are high-scorers – but one is in better form or looks stronger on paper than the other. Odds on these bets tend to be quite long, so you may prefer to back them as singles or multiples with fewer selections.

BTTS in Both Halves

One to remember if both teams are really strong going forward but particularly leaky at the back. Both teams to score in both halves is pretty self-explanatory – you’re betting on both teams to find the net either side of the half-time whistle. This isn’t a bet you will find coming in on a regular basis, so save it for those games when you’re anticipating a real goal-glut.

Over 2.5 Goals

Unders and Overs lines are worth knowing about for a whole raft of markets, but the one that’s most often-used is the Under or Over 2.5 goals line. Again, it’s worth noting which high-scoring teams are facing off if you’re looking for an overs bet, whereas strong defensive sides are the ones worth backing on your Unders bets. Odds on these bets are usually relatively low, so it could be worth combining several for a League Two accumulator.

Anytime Goalscorer

An easier bet to research, anytime goalscorer allows you to back a player to get themselves on the scoresheet at any point of the match. Of course, the top scorers are always worth checking in this league and Dominic Telford, last season’s top goalscorer, has remained in the division by joining Crawley Town from Newport County. Other players worth looking out for include Sam Hoskins of Northampton Town and Bradford City’s Andy Cook.


It’s not necessarily true that the lower leagues are dirtier or more combative than the league’s above, although the stats do suggest that some teams are dirtier than others. You can back certain players to be carded, or you can back one team to pick up more booking points than their opponents, or even the total amount of cards shown in the game. Barrow and Leyton Orient were the two teams to rack up more than 100 yellow cards last season, while Mansfield Town were the only team remaining in League Two to pick up more than five reds.

Corners Taken

Corner bets have become a key component of match betting in recent years too, with plenty of markets available in terms of which team will win the most corners and how many corners will be taken in the game. Early signs this season suggest that Sutton United and Bradford City are the teams to watch out for if you’re looking for plenty of corners in a fixture.

This Week’s League Two Predictions

After the latest in the way of League Two betting tips? We’ve got you covered right here at Squawka Bet. We pride ourselves on our knowledge of football not only at the highest level here in England, but across all of the European major leagues and across all three divisions of the EFL too.

With the statistics we have on hand, we study the form each and every week and look to have our League Two tips and predictions ready in advance of matchday, so every week you will find our best bets for the week’s fixtures in the English fourth tier right here with all the tools you need to place your bets.


You may think you will struggle to find League Two betting offers with it being the fourth tier of football in this country, but the bookmakers are always keen to offer their punters a little extra value and we make sure we bring you the best in the way of pre-match priceboosts and enhanced accumulators.

It’s rare you will find huge enhanced odds for new customers on League Two fixtures, so you’re better off making use of some free bets to get your account up and running and then you can check back for matchday price boosts and enhanced accas on a regular basis.

League Two Accumulator

What’s an accumulator we hear you ask? Well, it’s quite simple really. To place an accumulator, you have to combine bets from several different games for a longer-odds multiple selection bet. This can be on the same market – such as Win-Draw-Win, or you can combine bets from several different markets and competitions – and even different sports if you so wish.
The reason that accumulator bets are particularly popular among lower league supporters is that so many games take place at the same time, across not only League Two but also League One and the Championship. So you can place your bets and watch the results roll in at 3pm every Saturday afternoon. The stuff dreams are made of!

Best Bookmakers for League Two

There really are pros and cons to every single bookmaker when it comes to placing your bets. Given that the English fourth tier isn’t the most popular league in the world, it may be worth checking what League Two markets are available with the bookmaker of choice but there are plenty of other things to consider too, such as their customer service, In Play odds and of course the value available with their prices.

You’ll find League Two odds and priceboosts with any bookmaker worth their salt these days, but we’ve settled on the following five as our particular favourites for betting on these games:

Which other competitions do you offer tips for?

We aren’t just focused on English football of course. Although we do offer tips for every one of England’s four fully professional leagues, we also offer odds on the Champions League and Europa League as well as all major European leagues.

League Two Offers & Free Bets

Although not many bookmakers will offer new customers the chance to get the kind of enhanced odds you’d find on the Premier League every weekend, you will often find plenty of other ways to get extra value on your bets, including matchday price boosts and accumulator enhancements.

If it’s some League Two free bets you’re after, then it’s worth scouring the betting markets for the best available new customer offers around as many bookmakers will be keen to offer new punters the chance to get their betting underway with some free bets – but be sure to check the T&C’s before you start building that League Two accumulator!
