League One is the third tier of competition in the Football League of England. 24 clubs compete for the right to join the Football Championship and the promise of elevation to the Premier League. League One may not be as popular as the other league competitions but the Football League fuels the growth of football in England. This growth is evident in the continued interest and commercial sponsorship.
Like the Championship and League Two, League One has earned a reputation for being difficult to predict. With surprise results most weeks, and with sides fighting against relegation one season and challenging for promotion the next, League One may be tough to bet on but this difficulty can also be exciting for bettors. As well as this, there are some great value odds to be found if you increase your knowledge of how League One works.
League One presents punters with plenty of opportunity to find betting value throughout the football season. The number of League One betting tips that are posted by our community every weekend of the season reflects this passion for English football no matter what division it is. At bettingexpert, you'll find some of the best League One tipsters in the world, posting their League One betting tips and predictions each week to help you with your own betting.

How League One works is as follows. The winners of League One are rewarded with a place in the Championship, England's second tier, the following season. The team which finishes second in the table is also given a place in the Championship, replacing the sides who finish in the bottom two of the second tier.The four sides who finish third, fourth, fifth and sixth enter the League One playoffs, with the eventual winners given the final place in the Championship.
There are four relegation places in League One. The sides which finish 21st, 22nd, 23rd and 24th are all relegated to League Two for the following campaign, and are replaced by the top three of League Two and the League Two playoff winners.
League One is currently home to a number of former Premier League clubs. Oldham Athletic, one of the founder members of the Premier League, currently call League One home, along with Sheffield United, Bolton Wanderers, Bradford City, Swindon Town, Coventry City and Charlton Athletic.
Previous winners and members of the third tier of English football have played or currently play in the Premier League. Manchester City and Leicester City have both played in this division during the last 20 years, with both going on to become Premier League champions. Swansea City and AFC Bournemouth have also been members of this league in recent years, with Swansea and Leicester previous League One Champions.
