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 2021-22 season was a thrilling campaign as all 24 teams battled it out for promotion to League One.
League Two 2021-22 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, the League Two Playoff Final will be staged at Wembley Stadium as Mansfield and Port Vale aim to climb up a tier to League One.
Mansfield vs Port Vale – Port Vale to Win the Trophy – 10/11 (1.91)
Both Mansfield and Port Vale will believe they have enough momentum to win League Two's Play-off Final at the other's expense on Saturday, though we're tipping Darrell Clarke's Valiants to prevail in the capital. Port Vale and Mansfield last met as recent as March and on that occasion, Vale cruised to a 3-1 win against The Stags. The Valiants have lost only three matches away from Vale Park since the turn of the year and their ability to grind out results in unfamiliar territory makes them our favourites for playoff success.
The odds for League Two betting markets are subject to change depending on results and sportsbook offers. Before placing your bet on one of these great League Two markets, double-check the odds with your preferred sports bookie.
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. Forest Green were confirmed as champions in 2021/22, while Exeter City and Bristol Rovers joined them in the other automatic promotion spots.
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. Scunthorpe and Oldham have already been confirmed as the division's bottom two of the season and the relegation markets have been closed.
Top Goalscorer Odds
The top scorer in League Two this season was Newport's Dominic Telford with 25 goals, followed by Forest Green's Matt Stevens who bagged 23. Swindon's Harry McKirdy was four further back on 20. The markets for League Two's top goalscorer for the 2021/22 season have been closed.
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.
Major sportsbooks provide a range of League Two betting markets from pre-game moneyline bets to individual player offers. One of the most popular bets to make on lower league football – other than the moneyline bet – is the over/under wager. Unlike the Premier League, League Two’s assortment of clubs may be more likely to beat up on each other. Player quality can also affect the number of goals scored and conceded.
Accumulators remain one of the favourite ways to bet on League Two football. The amount of fun offered by an accumulator is through the roof. For a small stake, punters have the chance to make large profits.
