We're going to finish our tour of the British Isles, which started with a preview of the English Premier League, with a betting preview of the English League One, the league that can be considered to be the gateway to the true fames and riches of the football world. One of the things that simply has to catch one's eye is how many matches the League One teams have to play throughout the year, which means that consistency is more important than flashiness.

Sheffield United are the favorites for the title, which is more than reasonable considering their qualities and also given that they've proven that they can last the entire stretch without being completely out of depth at any point, but it nonetheless seems to us that Bradford might be the shrewdest bet at 17.00 with Bet365. Not only are they a solid team, but they've improved in the previous season and, from the mental side of things, they won't be under much pressure or anything. Couple that with reasonable depth and we think that you'll have a good each-way put.

Blackpool, on the other hand, look set to struggle again after their relegation from the Championship and the problems are so big that it wouldn't be a huge surprise to us to see them getting relegated yet again. It's not only about the squad, it's also about the financials and stuff, so we'll back them to finish at the bottom of the table at 3.00 with Bet365.

The one man that looks worth a punt in the top goalscorer market is Ian Henderson, the go-to man from Rochdale. The team will be attacking the top spots like it was last year, so there will be plenty of opportunities for him to prove his worth, and his record in the last season was rather fabulous in all fairness. Once again, consistency is the key here, and Henderson is likely to be on for most - if not all - of Rochdale matches, which makes him an interesting punt at 17.00 with Bet365 in our eyes.

Our selections:

Bradford to win England League One 2015/2016 at 17.00 @ Bet365 (Each-Way 1/4 1-2-3)

Relegation - Blackpool at 3.00 @ Bet365
