League One is the third tier of English football, sitting beneath the Premier League and the Championship but above League Two in the professional football hierarchy. Our League One hub page offers you everything you need for betting on this highly competitive division, including live betting odds comparison – both for the individual matches and a number of outright betting markets – along with the latest league table and fixtures.
League One has previously been called, perhaps confusingly, the Second Division and also, more logically, Division Three; but what remains constant is the battling nature of the football and the passion of the fans.
Making predictions for this league and offering betting tips is no easy task as, unlike the highest divisions, there is never a dominant team or group of teams. This season (2014-15) Sheffield United start out as favourite in the odds at a price of around 11/2 but it would take a brave man to predict they will romp to the title given there are at least five other sides whose betting odds suggest they have a reasonable chance of glory.
The League One champions from the 2007-08 to 2000-10 seasons have gone on to great success, with Swansea and Leicester currently in the Premier League and Norwich having just been relegated and so it is clear that success in this division can be used as a stepping stone to the dizzy heights of the top flight.
Can Sheffield United, Bristol City or any of the other favourites in the League One betting emulate those aforementioned clubs? We won’t be making any bold predictions but be sure to check back here for the latest live odds.
