League Two 2018/19 Ante-Post Betting Tips
Football League tipster Ross Casey goes through the three main markets of each division in the Football League, with this article looking at League Two. Do you agree with his picks?
Notts County To Win League Two
Kevin Nolan’s Magpies looked on course for promotion last season before losing to eventual winners Coventry in the play-offs. It what was the manager’s first full season as a manager, you would hope he has learned a lot from the experience.
The Magpies have revamped their squad and it appears he has made a conscious effort to lower the average age of his team, as that may have been one of the reasons they ran out of steam last season.
The likes of Shola Ameobi have left the club during the summer with striker Kristian Dennis the most eye-catching arrival from Chesterfield, after he scored 19 goals in League Two last term despite playing for the side that finished rock bottom.
None of their strikers managed to hit double figures in the league last season, but with Dennis claiming the number nine shirt, they hope that will change in the 2018/19 season.
Further arrivals such as David Vaughan, Nathan Thomas and Enzio Boldewijn improve the midfield too, and whilst question marks remain over their defence and in goal, the likelihood is that Notts County will aim to simply outscore their opponents this season playing a brand of adventurous attacking football.
They are favourites to lift the trophy at 11/2.
Crawley Top 6 Finish
Crawley went about their pre-season looking at several trialists and facing tough competition and they certainly didn’t disgrace themselves in their results.
Harry Kewell has quietly gone about bringing in plenty of experience to his squad with the likes of Romain Vincelot, Dominic Poleon and Filipe Morais all on-board for the coming season.
The Red Devils finished 14th last season and now 51 games into his managerial career, Kewell will surely be learning plenty day-to-day and with a full pre-season underneath him this time around, I think he can guide Town towards the top of the League Two table.
Back Crawley to secure a top six finish with our League Two betting odds of 9/2.
Morecambe To Be Relegated
Morecambe only survived relegation by the skin of their teeth last season and despite being taken over since then, the majority of their transfers have been free signings with lots of pressure on Jason Oswell from Stockport after he managed to notch 29 goals in 45 games down in Greater Manchester last season.
No team won less home matches in the bottom tier than Morecambe last season and that will have to improve and I can see why 188BET have made them favourites to go down after ending the 2017/18 season on an 11 match winless streak and remaining that way in pre-season.
You can get Morecambe to face the drop with League One odds of 5/2.
