The absence of Wolves means that League One should be a lot more open this season and I can not see any side dominating the way the Midlands club did last year. BET365 have Sheff United the 5/1 favourites after coming seventh and making the FA Cup semi-finals. The Blades had a season of two halves last time out, the first under David Weir was a disaster that saw ...

RELEGATIONWith four teams dropping through the League One trapdoor I think some value can be found in the relegation markets with BET365. Crawley at 3/1 appeal after ending the season with a run of just three victories from their last 14 games. John Gregory was a surprising choice as manager when he took over and I am unimpressed by the transfer de...

A Wembley heartbreak can be the making or the breaking of a team and it is hoped that Burton can use their loss to Fleetwood to push on to bigger and better things, which include the League Two title. The Brewers have kept their key players from last season while adding to the mix with a number of players including Shane Cansdell-Sherriff and John Mousinho. Gary Ro...

RELEGATIONJust 12 points seperated Oxford in eighth and Bristol Rovers in 23rd last season which made for an open relegation battle that saw Wycombe survive on goal difference. The Chairboys though are 11/2 for the drop which is a big price considering I would have had them as favourites. Wycombe gained just two wins in their last 12 and just six ho...

Blackpool are just 4/7 for relegation from the Championship as they scramble around to build a squad. I was impressed by Jose Riga in the short spell at Charlton and if they can keep him I would confident they could stay up although you could not blame him if walked away from the mess the club is keen. The value in the Tangerines to be relegated has long since gone...

BET365 make Cardiff the 7/1 favourites for the Championship season which gets underway Friday 8th August. The Bluebirds won the title two seasons ago which is the only reason I can think for this decision as it seems a puzzling choice of market leaders. Ole Gunnar Solksjaer is an unproven manager with no experience of this division, Vincent Tan is an owner prone t...

On that occasion James Wade saw off Simon Whitlock 18-16 in a classic and Michael van Gerwen defeated Dave Chisnall 16-11. Will it be the same again on Thursday evening?In terms of Whitlock a...

Wright made the PDC final where he lost to van Gerwen while Bunting was the winner of the BDO World Championship.
