Who are favourites to win the League One?

Leam Richardson’s Latics have lost just three games since October, so are naturally in and amongst the division’s Championship dreamers. As it stands, Wigan are top of League One, three points clear of both Rotherham and MK Dons with two games remaining. It’s a chalk and cheese season compared to 2020/21, in which The Latics finished just a place and a point above the relegation zone. Now they are looking up rather than down.

Rotherham are naturally rubbing shoulders with some of the division’s promotion hopefuls. Under Paul Warne, The Millers have twice secured promotion from League One to the Championship, winning the play-offs in 2018 and finishing as runners-up in 2020. He certainly knows what it takes to make it out of the third tier, and his sixth stint in South Yorkshire is proving equally as fruitful, with his side currently in second after 44 games, needing to make up three points on leaders Wigan.

MK Dons are also in the mix for the division’s top prize. Having won just two of their opening six games to start this season, The Dons didn’t appear to be in the running during those early stages. However, Liam Manning has masterminded an run that has seen them lose just two of their last 18 league games. Scott Twine and Mo Eisa have been on fire, however they will need a miracle to finish top being three points behind with just one game remaining.

League One outright odds: Other markets

There are many more outright markets beyond just who will seal first place in League One. Many bookmakers are also offering markets such as Promotion, To Finish In The Top Six, Automatic Promotion, To Be Relegated, To Finish In The Top Half, To Win The Playoffs, To Make The Playoffs, and even more player specific markets such as the Top Scorer.

League One relegation odds

With Crewe already relegated to League Two and Doncaster all but joining them, there are two spots left between four sides.

If Fleetwood win their game in hand against Sheffield Wednesday then they will all but confirm their safety and relegate AFC Wimbledon in the process. If they were to lose then there will be just two points separating Morecambe, Gillingham and Fleetwood going into the final weekend.
