League Two Playoff Odds: MK Dons 6/4 Promotion Favourites


Four teams are in the League Two playoffs after a wild race to grab the final spots. Just over a week after the final game, on Monday, the playoffs will begin with two games that day to kick us off in style.

MK Dons, Doncaster, Crewe and Crawley will take part in the playoffs, that’s the order they finished in the league and also their order in the latest League Two playoff odds. All bookmakers have MK Dons as favourites, while Doncaster are behind, after a dramatic and high quality end to their season, which has put them firmly in the mix.

In the semi finals, MK Dons will play Crawley while Doncaster will play Crewe.

MK Dons Promotion Odds

Favourites for promotion are MK Dons, and of the four teams in the playoffs, they were the only ones to really get close to challenging for the automatic promotion spots.

Boss Mike Williamson continues to impress, and will no doubt attract interest from higher up the pyramid soon, especially if he gets a playoff success on his CV.

Relegated from League One last season, MK Dons have the quality edge over the other three I think, led by the exciting duo of Max Dean and Alex Gilbey.

If anyone can keep them quiet, then that really harms the chances of MK Dons, Dean has 16 goals while Gilbey has 14, alongside 10 assists.

Doncaster Promotion Odds

Forget League Two, Doncaster are the in form playoff team from any division, and should be full of confidence.

There was talks of relegation in February, but thanks to some work from boss Grant McCann, some good January signings and the return to fitness of other players, Rovers have been on the up ever since.

They’ve ended the season on an 11 game unbeaten run, winning 10 in a row and then drawing their final game of the season on Saturday. That kind of momentum, and the belief this team must have right now, is like gold dust in the playoffs.

Joe Ironside has 22 goals this season, but is the only player to hit double figures, away from him, it is a real team effort.

Crewe Promotion Odds

Crewe arrive in the playoffs completely out of form, and were lucky to get in really, given how many other teams were involved. They have won just two of their last 12 games, and have not won any of their last three, scoring just one goal in those games.

It’s going to be interesting to see how they set up here, will this be a clean slate, or will we see them continue to struggle, especially with the ball, and fail to make this opportunity count?

Elliott Nevitt has top scored for Alex this season, with 18 goals, Courtney Baker-Richardson has 10 and is the only other player in double figures.

Crawley Promotion Odds

A win on the final day of the season saw Crawley pull themselves into the playoffs at the last minute, but prior to that, they struggled for form.

No win in four during that period, two defeats and two draws, so things aren’t perfect right now. But like Crewe, they have the chance to view this as a clean slate and start over again, with a fresh mindset.

Danilo Orsi has been excellent all season, and leads them with 21 goals to his name. Klaidi Lolos has 14, but Adam Campbell is the only other player to score more than five, so there isn’t too much scoring depth in behind.
