Still all to play for in Leagues One and Two as we enter the final week.
Amazingly, both places are still available, although it’s in Luton (1/12) and Barnsley’s (1/6) hands. Portsmouth (3/1) and Sunderland (100/1) need to win their two remaining games to stand a chance, and punters are backing Pompey (40% of bets in the last 48 hours) to gate-crash one of those spots.
If the promotion race is incredible, there are no words to describe the relegation battle. Six teams are fighting to avoid three places, with Bradford already gone. Southend (26% of bets) are one place above the drop and level on points with Plymouth, but are the most backed team for relegation at 1/2.
Wimbledon (19%) are next, even though an incredible late run now has them at 9/1. The Pilgrims are 4/5 to go down and complete the top three with 18% of bets.
Bury (1/33) are almost there, but have to play Tranmere (9/1) on Tuesday who can still claim a top three finish with two wins and results from elsewhere. 40% of bets are on them to do just that and get back-to-back promotions.
Mansfield (10/11) just need to match or better MK Dons’ result and 30% of bets have gone on David Flitcroft’s men to get over the line.
There is only one way that Notts County (1/9) can save themselves: They have to beat Grimsby and hope that Macclesfield (13/2) lose against Cambridge. 68% of bets have gone on County to lose their Football League status for the first time ever, with 32% going on Macclesfield to go straight back down.
