Fleetwood 15/2 to gain promotion from League One this season

24 June 2015

Town priced at 11/10 to pick up three points on opening day

Fleetwood Town have been priced at 15/2 by Sky Bet to gain promotion from League One this season.

Sheffield United have been named as the front-runners for promotion to the Sky Bet Championship in the 2015/16 Sky Bet League One season.

The Blades are under new management after Nigel Adkins replaced Nigel Clough at the end of last season, but the league sponsor rate their chances and have installed them as 11/2 favourites to win Sky Bet League One.

Their first game is away at Gillingham, and Adkins' men are 6/5 favourites to open the season with three points. You can also back the Gills at 2/1 and the draw at 12/5.

Wigan Athletic, under the stewardship of former player Gary Caldwell, are the second favourites for the title at 13/2.

They travel to Coventry City on the opening day, with a stern test against Caldwell's former boss at Hibs and Celtic Tony Mowbray.

Wigan are 6/5 for an opening day victory, with Coventry 2/1 to spoil the party.

Millwall were relegated alongside Wigan last season and are third favourites to win the title.

They can be backed at 10/1, or 3/1 to win promotion back to the Championship.

The Lions travel to Shrewsbury Town on the opening day of the season, and are 13/8 to get off to a winning start.

Burton Albion - promoted as champions from Sky Bet League Two last season - are a 28/1 shot to repeat in the Sky Bet League One and are 9/1 for back to back promotions.

Their first game is at home to Scunthorpe United, and they are 19/4 favourites, with Scunthorpe 19/10.

Of the teams who may find themselves at the wrong end of the table, make Crewe Alexandra (10/11), Colchester United (8/13) and Port Vale (8/15) the least likely to stay up next May.

Crewe and Port Vale face each other on the opening day, with both teams eager to get off to a winning start.

Sky Bet think home advantage will play its part and have Crewe at 6/4, with Port Vale 13/8.

Newly promoted side Shrewsbury Town are priced at 1/14 to avoid the drop, while Southend - who triumphed in the League Two Play-Off final are level with Bury at 1/6 to avoid relegation in their first season in Sky Bet League One.

Southend fans face a mammoth first trip of the season to Fleetwood and can back their team at 21/10 to take all three points.

All odds are subject to change.
