National League Betting Tips

Free National League Betting Tips

The National League is the fifth tier of English football. Consisting of three divisions – the National League, National League North and National League South – the National League is classed as the fifth tier with the North and South divisions both classed as the sixth tier. The majority of teams making up these divisions are fully professional, though many play at semi-professional level. Confusingly, many refer to this tier as ‘non-league’. Non-league is a phrase used to signify a non-fully professional division, though most sides who partake in this division have been professional in recent seasons.

The National League can be an exciting league to bet on. As with every division in the English football system, any side is capable of beating any other and very often it’s not a surprise. In such a competitive league, many bets can be losing ones which leads many in betting circles to seek out National League betting tips. At bettingexpert, we believe we offer the best free English National League predictions, with a number of our football tipsters posting tips on this eventful division.

The National League provides bettors with plenty of opportunities to make profit throughout the season. Our tipsters post their National League predictions on a regular basis, including tips on the end of season playoffs, title winners and relegation betting. Predictions on individual matches are also commonly posted, with many of our members posting tips on betting favourites such as Match Result, Anytime Goalscorer and Asian Handicap.

If you want inspiration for your English National League betting, give our tipsters a try. You can see which of our tipsters have proven track records as we rank our tipsters in order of success. On each tipster’s profile, you will see the total profit and yield that tipster has made, allowing you to follow only the best tipsters around!

Many bettors new to wagering on this division often ask how the National League works, in particular how do National League playoffs work. Let’s take a look at this division in more detail.

The National League consists of 24 teams, with 22 teams each in the North and South divisions. The winners of the National League win promotion to League Two, and are replaced by the bottom side of that division. The teams that finish between Second and Fifth qualify for the National League playoffs, with the overall winners earning the second promotion place, replaced by the League Two side that finishes second from bottom. The playoffs involve two two-legged semi-finals, with second place playing fifth and third playing fourth. The two winners from those semi-finals play each other in the Final, with the winner of that match earning promotion.

The bottom four sides in the National League at the end of the season are relegated to either the National League North or National League South, depending on their location geographically. The winners of the National Leagues North and South are promoted to the National League, with the other two available promotion places decided by a playoff competition.

Recent previous National League winners have gone on to perform well and retain their place in the professional game, most notably Burton Albion. Burton won this division in 2009 and have most recently plyed their trade in the second tier of English football, the Championship.
