League One was dominated this season by Wolves, the Midlands club set to bounce back to the Championship with more than 100 points, where they will be joined by Brentford who will finish second behind them.

Here, however, we are concerned with the third promotion spot in League One and that will come via the division’s play-offs, with Preston North End, Leyton Orient, Rotherham United and Peterborough United set to battle it out, having secured their tickets for the promotional lottery with a game or more to spare.We have to say that we’re very confident that Preston, who seem likely to finish third, look a great bet to secure promotion out of League One and into the second tier of English football. They can be backed at best betting odds of 12/5 with Bet365 to do so, marginally ahead of Rotherham in the betting, the South Yorkshire side available at 5/2. Orient are available at odds of 3/1, the same price as Peterborough.

Whichever of the four clubs you fancy will edge the outright promotion betting, the easiest way to get the best price for your bet is by using our live betting odds comparison, which quickly and easily shows which bookie is offering the highest odds.

Our money, as said, is on Preston, the Lancashire side having demonstrated their class over the course of the campaign and, importantly, being the team that did best against the other play-off hopefuls. North End lost just one of the six matches against the other three and whilst they only won two they also have the benefit of ending the campaign very strongly and as such they are our top betting tip at nice odds.
