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 2020-21 season is set to be a thrilling campaign as always as 24 teams battle 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.
Tip 1: Forest Green vs Salford City: Forest Green to Win @ 19/20 (1.95)
League leaders Forest Green earned a useful point at fellow promotion-chasers Leyton Orient in midweek, though Rovers can go one better when they return to home soil against Salford on Saturday. The Ammies have lost five of their last six on the road and that record will be music to the ears of Rob Edwards’ formidable Forest Green.
Tip 2: Tranmere Rovers vs Northampton: Tranmere Rovers to Win @ 7/5 (2.4)
Tranmere have really gotten their act together in recent weeks and their haul of four wins and two draws from a tough six-game gauntlet has fired them up to fifth spot. Rovers have won four assignments on the spin at Prenton Park, conceding just once along the way, and their defensive strength should get them over the line again against Northampton.
Tip 3: Hartlepool vs Harrogate: Both Teams to Score @ 5/6 (1.83)
Harrogate are performing above expectations this season, though the impressive Sulphurites could be given a real run for their money by Hartlepool on Saturday. Pools are unbeaten at Victoria Park this term, where they hold a 100% strike rate after six fixtures. Harrogate have notched nine times in six away tests during the same period however, so back both teams to register here.

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. Following the last round of results, Forest Green are the current title favourites with Netbet @ 2/1, followed by Harrogate @ 10/1 and Port Vale @ 10/1.
Suffering relegation is never something a team wants to suffer but, arguably, the drop from League Two into the National League is the harshest demotion of all and the most difficult to bounce back from. At present, Netbet have Scunthorpe as the unfortunate favourites to go down @ 4/9, with Oldham next at 11/10, followed by Stevenage @ 6/1.
Top Goalscorer Odds
The current top scorer in League Two is Luke Armstrong (Harrogate) with 8 goals with Jamille Matt (Forest Green), Matt Jay (Exeter) and Forest Green's Matthew Stevens just behind on 7 goals each. The current odds for League Two's top goalscorer for the 2021/22 season…
- Matt Jay @ 6/1
- Jamille Matt @ 7/1
- Andy Cook @ 8/1
- Mathew Stevens @ 9/1
- Jack Muldoon @ 12/1
- Luke Armstrong @14/1
- Jamie Proctor @ 16/1
- Sam Nombe @ 16/1
- Danny Jonson @ 25/1

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