Sky Bet discuss promotion odds

4 October 2013

The Football League’s title sponsor, Sky Bet, discuss the market movers ahead of this weekend’s action.

Who is hot in the League 2 promotion race?

Mansfield Town’s promotion odds have been cut from 11/2 to 4/1, after they ended the unbeaten start of title-favourites Chesterfield, with a 1-0 victory at the Proact Stadium last weekend.

The Spireites remain odds-on for promotion and 13/8 to win Sky Bet League Two, despite having their 100% home record ended in front of over 10,000 fans.

Paul Cox’s men were 100/30 outsiders heading into the derby, but claimed all three points thanks to Calvin Andrew’s first goal for the club.

The result means that promotion betting is looking increasingly clustered, with a solitary point separating Oxford United, who are in second position, from sixth-placed Exeter City.

Twelve clubs are currently at single-figure odds to earn promotion, compared to eight clubs in Sky Bet League One.

Oxford’s promotion odds have come back in to 6/4 after they earned a 3-1 victory at Hartlepool United.

Fleetwood Town remain second-favourites for the title at 7/2, despite their 2-1 home defeat to Exeter, who are 5/1 for promotion and 33/1 to claim top spot.

Fifth-placed Rochdale, whose boss Keith Hill has won the ‘Manager of the Month’ award, are 11/4 for promotion, while Burton Albion are 5/1 to go up.

Scunthorpe United and Portsmouth are both 3/1 for promotion.
