Betting Tip: @ Portsmouth to win League One @ 14/1 with bet365

Sunderland are the favourites to win the Sky Bet League One title, with the Black Cats trading at around the 3/1 mark to finish top of the pile.

The Wearside club have suffered a double relegation which has seen them tumble from the Premier League to the third tier, with Jack Ross the man tasked with improving the fortunes of a well-supported team under new ownership.

Ross arrives from north of the border with a strong reputation although this will be different to anything the Scot has experienced, with the manager effectively having to rebuild the squad and it might be a season of transition.

If Sunderland prove to be false favourites, then the bookies reckon that Barnsley are best placed to take advantage, although the Tykes are another side who suffered relegation last term and that’s got to be a black mark against the Yorkshire side.

Every other team is trading at a double figure price, with Charlton Athletic experiencing an injury crisis of sorts ahead of the new season, while Lee Bowyer’s management experience doesn’t compare favourably with some of the other teams trading at a similar price.

One such team is Portsmouth, with Kenny Jackett hoping that his team can build on last season’s strong finish which saw Pompey sit just outside the play-off places in the final reckoning.

Brett Pitman will keep bringing the goals for the south coast team, with odds of 14/1 being perfectly fair about a team managed by someone who knows how to get a club promoted.

Peterborough United have been shedding players and are passed over in favour of Luton Town who look as though they can build on that promotion from League Two last term which saw the Hatters destroy several teams.

Nathan Jones claims that he originally built a squad to compete in League One and they should benefit from having that in place straight away, with Danny Hylton and James Collins likely to deliver the goals.
