It’s as you were at the top of 2021/22 League One as Plymouth battled the elements at home to Bolton to extend their unbeaten run to 13 matches.
Will that be an unlucky number for the Pilgrims as they travel to out-of-form Morecambe this weekend?
We’re back with our next set of League One predictions…
EFL League One Predictions | Weekend Games
While the EFL Championship already seems to be shaping up to be a battle royale between three sides, League One looks anyone’s for the taking.
Just seven points separate the current top seven, but it’s Plymouth Argyle and Sunderland sitting pretty at the top after their three closest rivals all dropped points in midweek.
Ryan Lowe’s table toppers will be hoping to surpass the 30-point barrier this weekend as they travel to a Morecambe side showing signs of losing steam after their shock promotion last season, while the Black Cats are purring after seven wins in their last nine league games.
Lee Johnson will be hoping a ‘new manager bounce’ for his opposite number on Saturday doesn’t halt that progress as Johnnie Jackson takes the temporary reins of Charlton Athletic in the wake of Nigel Adkins’ sacking.
MK Dons and Rotherham could be flying under the radar in the League One outright betting with both quietly pushing themselves into the automatic promotion conversation.
The Millers could make it seven league games unbeaten as they travel to Stadium MK, with Paul Warne’s charges starting to motor as the long-serving Rotherham boss bids for a third promotion from this level.
Wycombe Wanderers will also fancy their chances of applying some heat on the current top two as the Chairboys welcome troubled Crewe to Adams Park.
If Alex are in trouble, they at least have more point to their name than cut-adrift Doncaster Rovers.
Richie Wellens’ men have now lost four of their last five games to leave them six points away from safety. The exasperated Donny boss has called on his side to ‘grow up’ as they host Cheltenham.
If a play-off charge was the minimum requirement for Portsmouth at the start of this campaign, a potential trip back into League Two certainly wasn’t in their plans.
Danny Cowley will be hoping to put arguably his worst week as an EFL manager behind him away at Accrington Stanley after seeing his side ship eight goals in two league matches.
Shrewsbury will be looking to step up their survival bid as they return to home comforts against Cambridge Utd.
All but one of their 11 points this season have come at the New Meadow, and Steve Cotterill’s strugglers could make it four wins from their last six at home with victory in Shropshire.
Better Odds Mean Bigger Winnings.
