    Ante-Post Predictions in League One in 2023/24: A Bookmaker’s Recap

    The Rams entered the 2023/24 League One campaign as the favourites to clinch the title. Despite missing out on a shot at the play-offs on the final day in 2022/23, Paul Warne’s side stood out from the rest (5.00) in the betting markets.

    Bolton (8.00), Barnsley (9.00), Peterborough (10.00) and Portsmouth (11.00) were the next in line to gain automatic promotion as Champions.

    Interestingly, Reading was joint fifth-favourites for the crown at 11.00 alongside Pompey. It’s safe to say that John Mousinho’s men on the south coast have won that battle. Royals supporters are fighting more significant battles right now – saving their club being one.

    Like Reading, Wycombe was dubbed an outside 17.00 chance of winning the title. Fast forward to the backend of the 2023/24 campaign, and avoiding relegation has taken up all priorities following Gareth Ainsworth’s departure to QPR.

    In terms of clinching a Top Six spot, Bolton (2.00), Posh (2.20) and Portsmouth (2.37) all offered odds-against prices which punters would snatch your hand off for now. Fanbases from the aforementioned three will be hopeful it’s a League 1 trophy lift on the agenda in May, let alone a Top Six finish.  

    Relegation Favourites

    At the other end of the table, Paul Simpson’s Carlisle United (2.25) sauntered through the summer as relegation favourites. Teams who put in a promotion-earning season in League Two aren’t always destined for the drop in the following campaign. The bookmakers may have got this one right.

    Elsewhere, in Stevenage, Steve Evans’ gang of plucky men presents as the other side to that coin. At 3.25, the side that finished second in League Two was on the bookmaker’s radar as seventh most likely to be relegated. Considering Evans is in charge, that always looked improbable. Believe it or not, they’re aiming for Championship football through the play-offs at Broadhall Way.

    As we’ve already touched upon, Reading was nowhere near the conversation, but Fleetwood Town (2.50) was. Charlie Adam has a gigantic task to keep the Cod Army afloat. After Fleetwood owner Andy Pilley was jailed for fraud, their stock dropped substantially in the outright markets.


    England League 1 Betting Tips

    Betting in the English Football League, and League 1 specifically, can be both exciting and challenging due to the competitive nature of the leagues. It’s cliche; you’ve heard it a thousand times, but anyone can beat anyone in the pyramid. It’s why we love it so much. 

    With that in mind, here are some general League 1 tips:

    Research, Research, Research: Before placing any bets, thorough research is crucial. Look into team performance, head-to-head records, player injuries, suspensions, and any other variables you believe will impact the fixture. Following form closely can aid one’s betting journey. How have a team reacted after new management have waltzed through the door? Can a certain squad muster the attacking intent needed without their injured star striker?

    Look Beyond the Favorites: Upsets are common in EFL matches. Sometimes, betting on underdogs, especially at home, can be profitable. Look into the Asian Handicap markets to get these teams on your side.

    Consider Different Betting Markets: Apart from the traditional 1X2 bets, explore other markets like over/under goals, Asian Handicaps, both teams to score, first goal scorer, Booking Points, and half-time/full-time results. These can occasionally offer more value.

    Follow Expert Advice: Following tips from reputable football betting experts and analysts, like at zicoball, can be beneficial, but always cross-reference with your research.

    Stay Updated: Keep up with the latest news and updates in the EFL, as these can significantly impact game outcomes and betting odds.

    Remember, while betting can add to the excitement of football, ensure you always gamble responsibly.
