League One 2021-22 Best Bets
League One is often a difficult division to predict. Due to the variety of teams, financial differences between clubs, and the quality of players, surprises can occur each season.
Tip 1: Crewe vs Sunderland: Sunderland to win @ 4/5
Sunderland has had a pretty good run this season with eight wins out of the eleven matches they played. They are also seventeen points ahead of their current opponent Crewe Alexandra, who only managed to win one game this season. If that isn't enough to convince you, check out the head-to-head history between the teams – Sunderland won three of the last five matches they played together.
Tip 2: Cambridge vs Sheffield Wednesday: BTTS – Yes @ 17/20
We've seen plenty of BTTS games when looking at Cambridge and Sheffield Wednesday, separately and as a whole. 70% of Cambridge's last ten fixtures and 60% of Sheffield Wednesday's last ten League One matches ended with both teams scoring goals. Besides that, two-thirds of the head-to-head games between the two teams also ended with a BTTS outcome.
Tip 3: Fleetwood vs Burton: Over 2.5 Goals @ 21/20
Fleetwood is the second team in this League One season with most over 2.5 goal games, so far, and that includes the last five they played. Also, three of the last four times they played against each other ended with more than 2.5 total goals. Burton also had more than half of their games ending with over 2.5 total goals this season, which furthermore supports our prediction.

League One Outright Odds
The top teams in the League One table are changing each week, but like last time, Sunderland is leading the outright race with 11/4 @ Bet365. The second team this week to be considered is Sheffield Wednesday, which according to Bet365 is currently priced @ 7/1. Close to them is Wigan who is @ 8/1 according to Bet365. You can see that Sunderland is considered the outright winner, for now, and if they continue with the same form in the rest of the season, they will most likely win.
There isn't a big difference in the relegation odds from last week. We still have Doncaster as the favorite to get relegated this season @ 33/50 on Bet365's platform. After them the second-worst team right now according to Bet365 is Shrewsbury who is @ 83/100 this week. Bet365 also believes that Morecambe is the third most likely team to get relegated this season @ 1/1.
Top Goalscorer Odds
After last week the top goalscorer chart is a little different with Morecambe's Cole Stockton, Lincoln's Anthony Scully, and Rotherham Michael Smith at the top. According to Bet365, these are the odds for that market, currently:
- Cole Stockton @ 12/1
- Macauley Bonne @ 12/1
- Joe Pigott @ 16/1
- Eoin Doyle @ 16/1
- Luke Jephcott @ 16/1
- Ross Strewart @ 16/1
- Jayden Stockley @ 20/1
