League One Outright Winners Odds

Ipswich Town Odds: 5/1

Ipswich Town will be hoping to keep last season’s positive momentum under former Manchester United coach Kieran McKenna going into the 2022/23 season.

The Tractor Boys appointed the 36-year-old former Tottenham Hotspur academy coach back in late December and managed to go on an impressive run that saw them win 11, draw eight and lose just four times under McKenna.

Having managed to sign a series of impressive players so far such as Freddie Ladapo, Greg Leigh, Dominic Ball and more, Ipswich will be looking to earn themselves a place back in the Championship for the first time since 2019.

Sheffield Wednesday Odds: 5/1

Sheffield Wednesday are also priced at the same odds as Ipswich despite having missed out in the play-offs last season under Darren Moore.

The Owls were one of last season’s favourites to be promoted but ultimately fell short of Rotherham United by five points in the race for the automatics, however, they have made progress in their attempt to earn promotion back to the second-tier, as they signed Michael Smith who scored 25 in 54 matches for the Millers last season, as well as Michael Ihiekwe.

On top of this, they have managed to sign Will Vaulks from Cardiff City, as well as David Stockdale from Wycombe to further strengthen their bid to return back to the Championship at the second time of asking.

Peterborough United Odds: 8/1

Peterborough United endured a poor Championship campaign last time out, as they finished 22nd on 37 points. Although they did improve late on in the season upon the return of Grant McCann to London Road after his unfortunate sacking at Hull City following their takeover.

Having managed to finish as runners-up in League One back in 2020/21, as well as the highest relegated team, could McCann earn his second promotion as manager having lead Hull to the League One title in 2020/21?

Posh have made a number of additions to their squad so far, such as ex-Millwall midfielder Ben Thompson, Chelsea goalkeeper Lucas Bergstrom (loan), as well as Hector Kyprianou and David Ajiboye from Leyton Orient and Sutton United.

Derby County Odds: 10/1

Derby County recently lost Wayne Rooney as manager, as the former Everton and Manchester United player resigned from his role at Pride Park upon uncertainty over takeovers.

Rooney’s assistant, Liam Rosenior looks likely to take over at the helm, which could be a good move, as Derby’s tremendous team spirit could remain in place having fought as hard as they possibly could against their 21-point deduction last season.

With new owners set to take over at Derby, as well as managing to retain Jason Knight, Max Bird, Louie Sibley and Krystian Bielik due to their contracts not expiring in the summer, if Rosenior and co can build a good squad, then they will have some excellent players who are already at the club to work around.

MK Dons Odds: 10/1

MK Dons finished just one point shy of second-place Rotherham United last season and will be desperate to compete for promotion once again this time around.

Last season’s champions, Wigan Athletic, finished just three points better off than the Dons, showing just how close they were to earning promotion back to the Championship before losing against Wycombe Wanderers in the play-offs.

Liam Manning has proved to be an excellent manager so far in his short spell with MK, winning 29 of his 54 matches in charge, whilst only losing 13, showing that they are a hard team to beat. Having sold the likes of Scott Twine to Burnley for a fee in excess of £4m, they will certainly have a good transfer budget to spend this summer.

MK have already made some good acquisitions to their side which came close last season, signing Conor Grant from Rochdale, Nathan Holland on a free transfer from West Ham, as well as Ethan Robson and Matt Dennis from Blackpool and Norwich City.

MK DONS @ 10/1

Portsmouth Odds: 10/1

The final team on this list is Portsmouth who finished 10th in the standings last time out.

Danny Cowley is still trying to find his magic touch at Fratton Park which saw him earn promotions from the National League to League One with Lincoln City, but, could this season be the one for the former Imps manager?

Pompey have managed to get some astute signings over the line this summer, acquiring the likes of Mahlon Romeo of Cardiff City and seeing the return of Marlon Pack at the club.

Something that they will need to look for, however, is a better goal return, as they managed 68 in 46 league games last season, which was 14 fewer than league champions Wigan Athletic.
