Betting on League Two
Thanks to its relative unpredictability, League Two is still great for football betting, with all high street bookmakers as well as all online sports betting companies offering a wide range of markets on matches played at this level. However, few bookies will give as much thought to the odds they offer on League Two matches, especially when compared with the meticulous research that goes into offering odds on Premier League games, so, if you do your homework and know your stuff, you can maybe use this to your advantage and spot some very attractive odds.
Popular types of bet you can make include putting money on the overall winner of the division, as well as one which clubs you think will get promoted to League One. You could also have a flutter on which clubs you think will get relegated or which player you think will score the most goals in the division.
A great way of improving your chances of beating the bookie and making some money on League Two betting is to take advantage of in-play betting. This is when online bookmakers give you the chance to cash in on a bet before a game has finished.
Let's say, for example, you have put £10 on Morecambe to beat Bury at odds of 9/1. Now, imagine that Bury are winning 2-1 with 70 minutes of the match played. The bookmaker could offer you the chance to cash out your bet for £60. Of course, this is not as much as the £100 you stand to make if Preston do end up winning the match. However, it's still a profit and, more importantly, its money in the bank which, once you've cashed, you can't lose, even if Shrewsbury produce a late comeback.
Alternatively, you can use in-play betting to cut your losses and run. For example, if you have £20 on Burton Albion to beat Tranmere Rovers but Tranmere are losing 2-0 at half-time, you could be offered £6.20 to cash out. If you choose to accept this, you will not have lost all your money if Tranmere do hold on to their lead. But, of course, if you cash in and it turns out your initial hunch was right, then you will have missed out on making a profit.
About Football League Two
Formally known as Football League Two but more commonly called just League Two, this is the third-highest division of the English Football League. This means that it's the fourth-highest tier of the English football league system, behind the Premier League, the Championship and League One.
The division has traditionally offered a fascinating mix of small town teams with larger, well-established and more-famous clubs. It is this mixture, alongside the open nature of many games and the fact that there is usually strong competition at both ends of the league table, makes League Two relatively popular with fans, even if it doesn't have either the national or international following of the higher divisions.
The strong levels of competition at both the top and bottom of the table also make League Two quite popular with sports betting fans. Most high street bookmakers and certainly almost all specialist online sports betting companies, will offer a good selection of betting markets on League Two games throughout the season.
What makes League Two especially attractive for sports betting fans is that this is a league where you can make your expert knowledge help. For obvious reasons, some bookmakers may not do the same amount of research into the form of League Two clubs as they do for Premier League or even League One games, meaning that if you do your homework, you may be able to spot
History of League Two
The Football League Two was first launched for the 2004/05 season. Before this, it was known as the Football League Division 3 for several years, though in the decades before the advent of the Premier League it was known simply as the Football League Fourth Division.
Over the decades, dozens of different clubs have competed in this league. Over the past tens seasons or so, however, few clubs have stayed at this level for any great length of time, with most either being promoted or relegated within a few seasons.
Under the present format, 24 clubs compete in League Two. The clubs play one another twice, once at home and once away. Here's what you need to know about how League Two works:
A club is awarded three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for losing a game, nor are any bonus points available for high-scoring games
All League Two matches are 90 minutes long, and, since matches can be tied, there is never any extra time nor penalties shout-outs. So you can bet on a draw.
Teams are ranked according to the number of points they have won. The team with the most points at the end of the season are named the champions. If teams are equal on points, then the one with the best goal difference is ranked the highest
The champions automatically get promoted to The Championship, as do the runners-up. The teams ranked third to sixth, meanwhile, play one another in a straight knockout mini competition. The winner of this play-off also gets promoted to the Championship. You can get odds and bet on this.
At the other end of the table, the four clubs that finish bottom of Football League One are automatically relegated to League Two. These will be replaced the following season by the top three clubs from League Two, as well as with the winner of the League Two play-off
Who to Look Out For in 2014/15
The 2014/15 League Two season could end up being one of the most open and unpredictable ever. In fact, on paper, almost any team could end up either going for promotion or fighting against relegation.
Prior to the start of the season, Bury, Shrewsbury Town and Luton Town were all tipped as among the best bets for promotion, while Morecambe, Exeter and Accrington Stanley were all expected to struggle and be battling it out at the bottom of the table.
However, Portsmouth, York and Southend could also be dark horses for promotion, as could minnows Burton Albion. So if you place a bet earlier in the season you will get better odds if you want to back your instinct.
