League One Betting Tips: The Best Bets for the 2023/24 Season

The 2023/24 League One season is on the horizon and undoubtedly presents a tricky puzzle for sports bettors to unravel.

The best football betting sites rate Derby County as the favourites to win the title, but the loss of striker David McGoldrick is a blow to their hopes.

Read on we take a closer look at the upcoming season in League One and offer our best bets before the big kick off.


  • Bolton ready to make the step up.
  • Portsmouth look good for the top six.
  • Stevenage set for a swift return to League Two.

Bolton Fancied to Win Promotion

With none of the sides relegated from the Championship looking likely promotion contenders, it may pay to focus on the teams who have previously performed well in League One.

Bolton Wanderers fall into that category having finished fifth last season before losing out to Barnsley in the play-off semi-finals.

The Trotters conceded just 36 goals last season and the arrival of goalkeeper Nathan Baxter from Chelsea should ensure they keep things tight at the back.

On that basis, odds of 5/2 with BetUK for Bolton to win promotion either automatically or via the play-offs look a tempting proposition.

Pompey Should be in the Mix

Portsmouth ended last season with an 11-game unbeaten run, but it was not enough to secure a spot in the League One play-offs.

After finishing in the top 10 for five consecutive seasons, Pompey have built up plenty of experience of life in the third-tier.

Manager John Mousinho has made some shrewd additions to his squad this summer and the club will expect to mount a strong bid for promotion.

Several football betting sites rate them as 5/4 shots to finish inside the top six and they look a good bet to deliver a winning return for punters.

Stevenage Facing a Tough Campaign

Points deductions for several clubs make the League One relegation market tough to judge, but newly-promoted Stevenage could be the team to back.

They finished as League Two runners-up last term, conceding just 39 goals in 46 matches to finish six points adrift of eventual champions Leyton Orient.

The club has made a plethora of changes to their squad this summer, but it is difficult to imagine them having the quality to make their mark in this division.

Stevenage’s stay in League One is likely to be short and odds of 5/2 with BetUK to finish in the bottom four look too good to ignore.
