Top Teams In League One

Sunderland are the bookies favourites to climb back into the Championship, but it won’t be an easy ride.

Here’s a look at the leading League One contenders plus our top Odds Pick to win the title. 

  • Sunderland After failing to even reach the playoffs last season, this campaign will be the third that Sunderland have spent in League One. And that’s three too many for long-suffering Black Cats fans. Gaffer Phil Parkinson is the latest to ride the Mackem managerial merry Go Round and he will hope that last season’s top scorer Chris Maguire can fire them to a long-awaited League One title. 
  • Oxford United As easy on the eye as a well-poured pint of Guinness, Oxford’s attacking play was just as tasty last season. Just one team scored more goals than Karl Robinson’s men and only the top two won more games. If they can use their playoff final defeat to Wycombe as extra motivation, Oxford will be a tough nut to crack this time around.
  • Charlton Of the three teams relegated from the EFL Championship last season, Charlton are the most fancied to bounce back at the first time of asking. Lee Bowyer has managed to keep most of his squad together and new striker Conor Washington should thrive at this level, after spending last season playing for Hearts.

Our Top Odds Pick for League One is Oxford United – 14/1 at bet365

League One Key Dates For The 2020-21 Season

  • Final day: May 8, 2021
  • Play-off final: May 29/31, 2021

What Happened Last Season?

The League One season was cut short by Coronavirus, but a points per game average meant that Coventry and Rotherham were promoted automatically.

And when League One football returned in July, Wycombe Wanderers shocked Oxford United in the play-off final.

At the other end of the table, Tranmere, Southend and Bolton dropped to League Two, while Bury’s off-field problems meant they are sadly no longer members of the Football League.
