Best League One tips this weekend

Accrington Stanley 15:00 Ipswich Town

Ipswich Town boast a 100% record on the road this season and their only slip-ups have come at Portman Road. Kieran McKenna’s side are hard to oppose but we think that both teams scoring could be the best way to play this one. Accrington sit mid-table and have drawn all three home games, scoring six goals and conceding as many.


Bolton Wanderers 15:00 Charlton Athletic

Bolton are now looking like an established League One side and we think Ian Evatt’s side can overcome a Charlton side who have failed to win any of their games on the road this term. Wanderers are looking to bounce back after consecutive defeats in the league, with the Lancashire side having previously enjoyed bloodless wins against Wycombe and Morecambe on home soil.

BEST BET: Bolton to win

Derby County 15:00 Plymouth Argyle

Sixth place faces fifth place at Pride Park and it’s reasonable to assume that these teams will be challenging for the play-offs this season. Derby have won all three games on home soil which suggests that they might make the ground a fortress and have the confidence of a comeback win against Posh. However, Plymouth have seen twelve goals scored in their three road trips already.

Exeter City 15:00 MK Dons

MK Dons reached the play-offs last season although it was a slow start to the 2022-23 campaign and Liam Manning’s side lost their first three encounters. However, they have finally started to hit the straps and we’re backing them to claim three points at St James’ Park. Exeter City are going the other way after a fine start and they could be vulnerable against more established opponents.

BEST BET: MK Dons to win

Oxford United 15:00 Burton Albion

Burton appear to be the worst team in League One right now, with the Brewers having taken just one point from six games played. They have a goal difference of -11 and it could be a long afternoon at the Kassam Stadium. They have often tried to meet fire with fire on the road, with Oxford also experiencing a sluggish start and we can see the goals flowing between two bad sides.

BEST BET: Over 2.5 Goals

Portsmouth 15:00 Peterborough

Pompey appear to be clicking into gear under Danny Cowley, with the south coast team having collected fourteen points from six games played. It’s a ratio which would earn automatic promotion at the end of the campaign, although they face tough opponents at Fratton Park. Peterborough sit fourth and they are averaging more than two goals per game and so the BTTS Yes pick is the logical one.


There are often several League One games that come into sharp focus when we’re putting together our betting tips for the weekend. There can be lots of BTTS Yes selections that come from this division and the team at will put together some expert picks that you’re able to follow.

Whilst a lot of people will want a crazy accumulator each weekend to land big odds, it’s important to to not chase a big price. Keep to the selections you fancy and don’t throw that speculative option in your acca!
