Squawka Bet’s 2019/20 League One Predictions
Past seasons in League One have been hard to predict, the last two in particular. And yet, our betting tips still offer some of the most reliable and attractive odds and forecasts to date. This will come in handy if a footballing campaign like the last pans out this year. One that left Sunderland fans and players on their haunches, having won 56 of 61 games in the calendar year and yet still missed out on promotion to the Championship.
Indeed, the brand of football that Jack Ross’ team were playing was near-impossible to defend against. Unfortunately, despite the culmination of points and victories, heartbreak was the dominant emotion experienced by the Black Cats in May at Wembley. For whatever reason, they’ve been unable to shake off that despair evident in the first half of their 2019/20 campaign. So, unlike last year, our forecast doesn’t see the Roker men in the playoffs. Especially since there are new contenders for the League One crown, chiefly in Wycombe Wanderers and Peterborough. The former has been taking the league by storm, racking up 40 points in 19 games, with a single defeat to their name in that time. And the man leading the charge with six goals and four assists this season is 37-year-old Adebayo Akinfenwa. Not too far behind are Darren Ferguson’s Peterborough, who are certainly giving the current league leaders a run for their money. The promotion-hopefuls boast an attacking line-up featuring Mo Eisa from Bristol City to complement Ivan Toney’s skill and verve. Our 2019/20 League One predictions wager that these two teams will be battling it out for the automatic promotion spots, with Ipswich Town in the running to claim the last ticket out to the Championship.
The relegation contenders, on the other hand, are a whole different ballgame. Both Bolton and Southend were identified as teams that could face the drop to League Two in pre-season predictions and it seems like these nightmarish projections are coming true. Where the former has been tactically inept for large parts of the season resulting in their current plight, the latter looked worryingly light before the season started and those same cracks are being revealed as the first half of the season comes to an end. The final prediction – in line with our 2019/2020 League One betting tips – is that both will be relegated this season with one other team (Milton Keynes perhaps?) joining the pair into the basement of top-flight football.

League One History
Operating as the third-tier league in the entire English football league system, the English League One was first introduced to the footballing world in the 2004/05 season alongside the Championship. Ever since it’s inception, Premier League regulars have slipped down into the Championship and have found themselves in League One not too long after. At present (2019/2020), Peterborough and Gillingham are the two clubs that have played the highest number of games, having last been out of the league in the 2012-13 season.
