Only Sheffield United and Wigan Athletic have a better chance of promotion this season than Millwall, according to bookmakers .

Both the Blades and the Latics have spent big in their pursuit of Championship football this summer, with Millwall choosing to stick largely with the nucleus of last year’s squad.

But the Lions are said to be more likely for promotion than big guns such as Bradford City and Peterborough, with odds as short as 3-1 on Paddy Power for Neil Harris’s men to go up.

A title-win comes at a reasonable 10-1 on Ladbrokes.

With a mass summer exodus, losing likes of Alan Dunne and Danny Shittu, as well as having a relatively inexperienced manager, some punters may be more likely to back the Lions for relegation, especially with Totesport offering 20-1.

The top scorers market is worth a gander too. Striker Lee Gregory ended last season strongly and has a good striking record lower down the football pyramid. You can get 20-1 on him as League One’s top scorer on Bet 365.
