Odds released for Bolton Wanderers’ 2019/20 League One season

Bolton Wanderers’ League One odds released after Championship relegation

What a truly dismal season the 2018/19 campaign has been for everyone connected with Bolton Wanderers Football Club. The Trotters have been relegated from the Championship after managing to win just eight matches out of the 44 they have played and picking up just 32 points.

They will therefore join Ipswich Town and Rotherham United in League One next season, and this is the second time in four seasons that they have suffered relegation to the third tier of English football.

It is not just on the pitch where the problems have been for Bolton though. The campaign has consistently been marred by off-field issues with owner Ken Anderson at the very heart of the problem.

He has ran the club into the ground and they have failed to pay their players wages on more than one occasion this season. The latest failure was for the month of March, with the clubs playing staff still awaiting their payment at the time of writing.

Anderson agreed to sell Bolton to former Watford owner Laurence Bassini, but that is still to be approved by the English Football League (EFL). When it was announced the club said that "significant funds" would be made available to pay the players wages, but that has not happened which has ultimately led to them striking and refusing to play their fixture against Brentford.

Things therefore are not looking too good as they plummet into League One. Bookmakers are already offering odds on how the Trotters will do in the third tier next season and it is fair to say that they make for interesting reading. We have taken a look at their price for promotion and relegation below.

What odds are Bolton to be promoted straight back to the Championship?

The question now is can Bolton Wanderers bounce back and gain promotion straight back into the Championship? That is what they managed to do a couple of years ago when they were relegated, ultimately finishing second behind Sheffield United to get themselves back up.

In all honesty though, given the current circumstances at the Macron Stadium it looks a remarkably tall order for them this time around and it will surely be a more difficult task.

It is hard to tell exactly what will happen this summer. Will the takeover of Bassini go through? Will players stay at the club or will they have to have a complete overhaul of the squad? The uncertainty is bound to continue through the next months which is not a healthy position to be in.

However, despite all of that the bookmakers have somewhat surprisingly priced them up amongst the early favourites ahead of the 2019/20 League One campaign. Indeed of the six clubs currently on the market for next season Bolton have the second shortest odds to be promoted at 5/2 with Sky Bet, with only fellow relegated side Ipswich Town ahead of them with odds of 2/1.

As for the league title, they are also amongst the favourites in the bookmakers odds. In fact they are the joint favourites alongside Ipswich Town as it stands, with both clubs currently priced at 7/1 with Sky Bet.

Could Bolton suffer back-to-back relegations?

There is a possibility that if the clubs problems away from the pitch carry on that it could continue to affect the footballing side next season too.

They have several players out of contract including key centre backs Mark Beevers and David Wheater who will be difficult to replace, whilst attracting players will be a real issue if the hierarchy don't sort things out soon.

If the problems do continue, then there is areal chance that they will struggle once again next season and find themselves in a relegation battle. It has happened before, and in recent times quite often. Each of Coventry City, Portsmouth and Blackpool went into League One amidst financial problems and all three ended up going down again into League Two, so you cannot rule out the same happening at the Macron Stadium.

That said, the bookmakers are not putting them amongst the favourites for the drop at the moment. Their odds with Sky Bet to be relegated are 12/1, which is the second longest set of odds after Ipswich Town and some way off the 4/1 being offered for the likes of Lincoln City who have just been promoted.

But with the state the club is in at the moment, that price could significantly change over the coming months unless the issues are resolved.
