League Two Promotion Odds


  • Carlisle sit one point clear at the top of the table
  • The Cumbrians have lost just one of their last seven league outings
  • Chris Beech’s men are odds-on favourites to win promotion


Carlisle United were denied a chance to send themselves four points clear at the top of the League Two table when their Monday-evening meeting with Harrogate Town had to be postponed due to floodlight failure. This was a huge disappointment for the Cumbrians who would doubtless have been keen to maintain the momentum following their excellent league run. Chris Beech’s men have won five and lost just one of their last seven League Two outings and this has been enough to send them to the summit of the division as we fast approach the mid-way point of the campaign.

The bookies are confident that the Cumbrians will win promotion to League One at the end of the season with some firms going as low as 4/11 that they find themselves in the third-tier next term, while Beech’s side are also favourites to win the title at general odds of 11/4.

Second-placed Newport County currently sit just one point behind the Cumbrians in the League Two table, the South Wales outfit enjoying a game-in-hand over the league leaders. The bookies go 1/2 on County lifting themselves up to League One at the end of the campaign, ahead of Cheltenham Town who are 4/5 to make the jump.
