League Two is one of the most competitive football leagues in all of Europe. The 46-game season can either end in joy for four lucky teams as they reach promotion to League One or in despair. For two unlucky sides, however, relegation from League Two leads to Non-League football. The 2022-23 season promises to be another thrilling campaign as all 24 teams battle it out for promotion to League One.

League Two 2022-23 Best Predictions
League Two is well away from the bright lights of the Premier League and EFL Championship. It is a league in which teams grind out results and financial disparities can see a gulf in class on and off the pitch. This week, there is another full League Two fixture slate to enjoy and we've picked out some of our favourite predictions from the division's latest matchday.
Leyton Orient vs Salford – Salford Double chance –10/11 (1.91)
Leyton have been impressive this season but Salford have had an edge over Londoners in the past few seasons. Orient only managed one win in six against their Saturday rivals. Salford's current form on the road also has been impressive with the team winning five out of five in all competitions. Leyton started the season pretty well but lost their position as league leaders in recent games as they look shaky at the back. We expect Salford to exploit the weakness of Leyton in this crucial game and come out on top.
Walsall vs Rochdale – Total goals under 2.5 – 4/6 (1.67)
The previous two meetings between these two clubs have seen only one goal in total. Walsall have been decent at the back in the previous five games letting in seven goals. Rochdale's performance in recent times also saw a very defensive approach to the game. Rochdale might target for a point in the game with defensive solidarity. If the trend is to continue and we expect to do so, then we can see less than 2.5 goals in the game.
Mansfield vs Swindon – Swindon Double Chance – 10/11 (1.91)
Mansfield have played out three draws out of the last four games played at One Call Stadium. Swindon seems to have found its mojo and has made its way to sixth on the table. The away record is not impressive but the overall game looks good. A point shared will be a good reflection of their current form.

League Two Outright Odds
While winning via the Playoffs is said to be the more lucrative and exciting way to earn promotion to League One, winning the title proves that you are the best team in the division and means you claim automatic promotion. Salford are the current favourites to win the title at 11/2 (6.5) with Leyton Orient next in line at 13/2 (7.5) followed by Mansfield at 7/1 (8.0).
Suffering relegation is never something a team wants to go through and the drop from League Two into the National League is arguably the harshest demotion of all and the most difficult to bounce back from. Rochdale are the bookies current tip for the drop at 2/1 (3.0), while Hartlepool 9/4 (3.25) and Colchester 11/4 (3.75) are also listed among the favourites to go down.
Top Goalscorer Odds
The top scorer in League Two last season was Newport's Dominic Telford with 25 goals, followed by Forest Green's Matt Stevens who bagged 23. This year, Northampton's Sam Hoskins is the early front runner in the race for the Golden Boot with seven goals ahead of Walsall's Danny Johnson who has hit six.
- Danny Johnson (Walsall) – 5/1 (6.0)
- Sam Hoskins (Northampton) – 5/1 (6.0)

League Two Betting Tips
The League Two season is a long, marathon campaign of 46 games per team. The top three clubs are promoted automatically while teams four through seven make the playoffs. As long as a club finishes the regular season in the top 7, there is the chance they could achieve promotion to League One.

One of the most popular bets to make on lower league football – other than the moneyline bet – is the over/under wager.
