Stockport County Odds: 13/2

In their first season back in the EFL for 11 seasons after winning the National League last season, Stockport are currently favourites to win the League Two title and secure back-to-back promotions.

Stockport’s manager Dave Challinor said both he and the owners have big ambitions after securing promotion into League Two, saying “the aim will be to be competitive in League Two and try and get out of that league as quick as possible.”

Stockport have had some great signings this window to match their ambitions, signing defender Fraser Horsfall from divisional rival Northampton, with Challinor stating that the central defender is “statistically the most dominant defender in League Two.”

Salford City Odds: 7/1

Entering their fourth season in England’s fourth tier, Salford have the second-best odds of winning the title, despite finishing 10th and seven points out of a place in the play-offs.

Salford have appointed a new manager heading into the 22/23 season, hiring Manchester United’s under-23 coach Neil Wood to try and fulfil the huge aims that the class of 92 have set on the club when they took over in 2014.

Co-owner Nicky Butt stated that Neil Wood is an “exceptionally talented coach, very tactical and technical, and someone that everyone will really enjoy working with so it’s exciting times for us having him here.”

According to Transfermarkt, Salford’s squad have the highest average transfer value, meaning if Wood can get the best out of the players, then Salford have a great chance to push for automatic promotion and the title this season.

Bradford City Odds: 8/1

Despite finishing 14th and 15th in the past two seasons, Bradford finds themselves with the third-best odds of winning the League Two title, after a very busy summer with new-found hope for Bradford City fans.

Bradford have made twelve deals already this summer as they look to return to League One after spending the last three seasons in the fourth tier, with a return to the third tier more likely than ever since their relegation in 2019.

What is also boosting the odds for Bradford is their recent appointment of Mark Hughes, with the hope that his vast Premier League experience, both as a player and manager, will be able to steer Bradford towards a title fight.

Mansfield Town Odds: 10/1

After making an unlikely run to the play-off final last season, with it ending in a devastating defeat at the hands of Port Vale, Mansfield enter the new season with new-found confidence with hopes of not just automatic promotion, but outside hopes of winning the league.

After 16 incomings last season, Mansfield have been a lot quieter this window, only securing two signings so far, but manager Nigel Clough has stated they have agreements for loans of two Premier League youngsters.

Mansfield were great in 2022, winning 15 of their 27 games, and if they can carry on their great form to get a better start to the new season, they could have a great shot at being automatically promoted and even a title challenge.

Northampton Town Odds: 14/1

After missing out on automatic promotion on goal difference last season and losing in the semi-finals of the play-offs to Mansfield, Northampton Town are outsiders for the title this season, with the loss of defender Fraser Horsfall a big reason for the lowered expectations.

Last season Northampton had the best defensive record in the league, conceding only 38 goals in 46 games, but without Horsfall’s leadership and qualities at the back, Northampton could struggle in his absence, as he also contributed nine goals in the league last season, making Northampton outsiders for the title and automatic promotion.

League Two Outright Winners Odds



Swindon Town Odds: 14/1

After being defeated agonisingly on penalties in the semi-finals of the play-offs last season to eventual winners, Port Vale, in their return to league two after just lasting one season in League One, Swindon have been given an outsiders chance to return to the third tier as champions.

Last season Swindon had the best attack in the league, scoring 77 goals, but their defence didn’t have the same standard, conceding the most goals of any team in the top ten, but The Robins hope that new recruit Cian Harries, will sort their defensive issues and that it will result in automatic promotion and a push for top spot.
