Chesterfield odds-on for League Two after going eight points clear

| 20.02.2011

Two of Chesterfield’s main title rivals may have failed to make up ground on the league leaders due to a waterlogged pitch, but even so, Chesterfield are the dominant force in League Two.

At 8/11 to win League Two, the betting market certainly believes Chesterfield will take some stopping and second-placed Shrewsbury, whose match with Rotherham was called off due, find themselves eight points adrift of the league leaders.

Wycombe remain the second favourites for the League Two title but after their home loss to Accrington Stanley on Saturday, the Chairboys are now out to 4/1 to win the title.

Shrewsbury find themselves third in the League Two betting at 7/1 to win the title, and Rotherham are 10/1 after losing their form of late.

Bury’s draw with Gillingham saw Alan Knill’s side lose pace with the league leaders, and the Shakers are now 16/1 to win the league with the Gills available at 20/1 as the competition for the play-off places gets stronger.

Oxford United did their promotion prospects no harm with a 3-0 win away to Morecambe, but the Us have League Two odds of 33/1 and should concentrate on establishing themselves in the play-off zone.

Chesterfield are dominating League Two and are a big price at 5/4 to beat Bradford on Tuesday and extend their lead at the top.

16 of the 24 League Two teams are in action on Tuesday night as punters are afforded the opportunity to place a midweek League Two bet, and there is plenty of value to be found in the betting.

A £25 stake on Chesterfield winning League Two would return £43.18. New customers can sign up here for a free League Two bet worth £25.
