League One Predictions and Tips – Saturday 1 January

Rotherham United and Sunderland lead the way at the top of League One as we enter 2022. However, Wigan Athletic, Plymouth, Oxford and Wycombe are also in the promotion mix. We’ve got more fixtures on New Year’s Day, with the Millers strong favourites when they clash with Bolton. The same applies to the Latics when they meet Accrington.

Burton Albion 15:00 Crewe Alexandra

Crewe have shown signs of life in recent weeks. The Railwaymen moved off the foot of the EFL League One table after a recent win at Morecambe and they can land another positive result at the Pirelli Stadium. Burton are ensconced in mid-table although they are sliding in the wrong direction. A draw seems the right call for this clash.

Charlton Athletic 15:00 Wycombe Wanderers

Charlton sit mid-table but have aspirations of finishing in the top six of the League One table. The Addicks have enjoyed wins aplenty under Johnnie Jackson, with goals likely to be the order of the day in this clash at The Valley. Wycombe are now gunning for promotion and the Chairboys will now be targeting victories to stay in touch with the teams who are also in the hunt for automatic promotion.

Ipswich Town 15:00 Lincoln City

It’s been a largely troubling season for Ipswich although Kieran McKenna has recently left Manchester United to take charge. He engineered a recent 1-0 win over Wycombe at Portman Road and there’s a feeling that the Tractor Boys can enjoy a New Year’s Day victory against Lincoln. The Red Imps are hovering above the drop zone and their last League One win came in October.

Oxford United 15:00 Cheltenham Town

Karl Robinson’s team have always been one of the more attack-minded sides in League One. They have now won three of their previous four games, with a 3-0 victory over Wimbledon to end 2021 on a high. Oxford United should get the better of a Cheltenham side who have lost four of their past six encounters and drawn the other two.

Rotherham United 15:00 Bolton Wanderers

Rotherham United sit top of the League One table and Paul Warne’s side could be heading for a return to the Championship. They are strong favourites to get the better of Bolton and have been really strong from an attacking point-of-view at home. The visitors are struggling for goals and could yet get sucked into a relegation scrap this season.

Wigan Athletic 15:00 Accrington Stanley

Accrington Stanley were previously a team that had been involved in lots of high-scoring games. However, Stanley’s last four matches have all seen less than three goals being scored. Most recently came a goalless draw at Shrewsbury and they are capable of nullifying their nearby opponents here. Wigan tend to be more offensive on the road and a tight clash looks worth backing.

League One Quick Betting Tip IconBEST BET: Under 2.5 Goals

There are some tasty New Year clashes in League One, with the team putting together accumulator bets for 2022. It’s going to be interesting to see whether the games continue to be high-scoring. With lots of teams in the promotion mix right now. Check out the latest football betting tips and see if you agree with our predictions.
