League One Race: Odds to Watch, Tips and Predictions

league one hull

Hull City

Hull City are the current favourites to return to the Championship at the first time of asking. The Tigers captain George Honeyman and goalscoring talisman Mallik Wilkes have both impressed for Hull this campaign with 38 goal contributions between the two of them, which sees Grant McCann's side three points clear of Peterborough in second, having played a game more.

After beating Plymouth away last time out 3-0 away, Hull have five games left of their season with notable fixtures against rivals for an automatic spot, Sunderland, and sixth-placed Lincoln City.

Given the Tigers' consistent form this season, it will be no surprise to see Hull return to the Championship as champions, and this sees them priced as low as 1/10 for promotion, whilst they are 4/6 to win the division.

Peterborough

Peterborough United lost their talisman and the Championship's best player in the off-season in Ivan Toney, but Jonson Clarke-Harris's signing from Bristol Rovers has more than made up for the loss of the Brentford man. The 26-year-old has netted 27 goals in 39 appearances for Darren Ferguson's team, which sees them sat in the second automatic spot going into the final stretch of games.

Despite having the in-form team of the division in Sunderland breathing down their neck, the Posh have a game in hand over first-placed Hull City. Peterborough also have a favourable run of fixtures until the end of the season, with only Lincoln City to play in the top 8 teams.

Ferguson's men are currently priced at 1/5 for promotion and 7/4 to win the title.

Sunderland

Since Lee Johnson took over from Phil Parkinson at Sunderland, the Black Cats have been in blistering form, which has seen them become one of the favourites for promotion either automatically or through the dreaded play-offs. The club's number nine, Charlie Wyke, has been in outstanding form since the turn of the year, netting 17 since New Year's Day, firing Johnson's men to third in the table.

Had Lee Johnson been in charge since the start of the season, Sunderland would likely already be making a return to the Championship. However, given their poor start, the Black Cats are currently sitting 5 points off Peterborough after losing their last game away at Charlton. This has ultimately dented their automatic promotion bid but leaves them at 8/11 to go up, 11/2 to win the title and 11/4 to win the play-offs.

Portsmouth

The Cowley brothers have reignited Portsmouth's promotion hopes since taking over from Kenny Jackett, as they look to mastermind a return to the Championship for the first time since they were relegated back in 2012. Pompey have won four out of five of their fixtures under Danny Cowley but lost their first game at home to Burton Albion last time out. 

Despite an impressive start, Portsmouth haven't faced anyone in the top eight under Cowley's tutelage, and they will not play any rivals in their remaining seven fixtures either. However, Pompey currently sit 10 points off the automatics, meaning another play-off campaign looms, which sees them priced at 10/3 and 4/1 to win the play-offs.

Blackpool

Neil Critchley's Blackpool currently lie fifth in the table and will be looking to secure a play-off place in a congested League 1 table with several clubs looking to gatecrash the promotion picture. They drew 2-2 with Lincoln City last time out, who sit a place below them in the table, and Critchley will be hoping that the Jerry Yates, who has 18 goals in 37 appearances, can fire them to an unlikely promotion.

The Tangerines currently have eight matches left and a doubleheader against Sunderland to come in their most notable fixtures. Now, Blackpool are currently priced at 3/1 to be promoted to the Championship and 7/2 to win the play-offs.

Lincoln

Getting into the real outsiders now is Michael Appleton's Lincoln, who have dropped off significantly since being the early season pacesetters. However, the Imps are still in the play-offs by the skin of their teeth after drawing to Blackpool, with the likes of Charlton Athletic and Ipswich Town breathing down their necks.

Lincoln have struggled for an out and out goalscorer this season, with creative midfielder Jorge Grant being the only player to get into double figures this season with 11. The Imps also face a daunting set of fixtures with Hull, Peterborough, and Charlton Athletic still to play, which sees Lincoln priced at 11/2 for what seems an incredibly unlikely promotion given their poor form.

Charlton

Despite losing their manager Lee Bowyer to Birmingham City just a couple of weeks back weeks ago, Charlton are still in the hunt for a place in the top six. The experienced Nigel Adkins has replaced Bowyer and has got off to a solid start to life at the Valley with a win and a draw in his first two games, and the 56-year-old also boasts promotion experience in League One with Southampton. 

Charlton possesses two strikers who have hit double figures in Conor Washington and Chukes Aneke, and the two will have to continue to score consistently if they want to catch Lincoln or Portsmouth. If they can materialise a good run of form, the Addicks could be a good outside bet at 8/1, whilst they are also priced at 9/1 to make the play-offs and even 11/8 to make the play-offs.
