Betting Tip: @ Mansfield to win League Two @ 11/2 with williamhill

League Two is often a crazy division, as could be seen last season when Doncaster Rovers and Plymouth Argyle kicked clear only for Portsmouth to reel them in at the death.

Meanwhile, an exciting Luton Town side were beaten in the play-offs by Blackpool, with the Tangerines then kicking on to beat Exeter in the final. That’s the Exeter who were rock bottom earlier in the season.

In terms of budget, there is little to separate the bulk of the teams in this division although you often get certain clubs having a splurge and it appears Mansfield Town have taken a calculated gamble this summer.

Landing Steve Evans last season was a managerial coup and it was clear that the former Rotherham and Leeds boss would only remain in charge if given the funds to build a promotion-chasing squad. Evans claims he’s not a League Two boss and won’t spend any longer than one more season in the fourth tier.

At the time of writing, the Stags have signed twelve new players. While this doesn’t guarantee anything, Bobby Olejnik, David Mirfin and Lee Angol were all eye-catching rivals and it should be noted that Mansfield weren’t far away from securing a play-off spot last term.

The price has crumbled on Mansfield although 11/2 is still a fair price, while we also expect Forest Green to go well next season. Mark Cooper’s side are in the Football League for the first time and have strong ambitions to become a League One club.

Luton should also be strong given that Nathan Jones is likely to remain at Kenilworth Road, while Coventry, Swindon and Lincoln are also short in the betting.

However, Notts County could be the side to follow Mansfield home, with Kevin Nolan highly regarded at Meadow Lane and it appears he has recruited a couple of decent wingers to supply Shola Ameobi and Jon Stead.
