IN A STUNNING turn of events, newly promoted side Wrexham has emerged as the clear favorite to win the upcoming League Two season. The team, which is making its return to the English Football League (EFL), has instantly become the top pick with odds of 4/1, according to the talkSPORT BET outright odds.
Wrexham’s rise to prominence can be credited to the efforts of its owners, Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. The duo took over the club in 2021 and has since orchestrated a massive transformation, aiming for two successive promotions.
The prospect of marquee signings joining the ranks of Wrexham has captured the attention of football enthusiasts, as Reynolds and McElhenney’s involvement injects a touch of glamour and excitement into the club. With their backing, Wrexham is poised to make a strong push for League Two glory.
However, they will face tough competition from Stockport, who narrowly missed out on promotion in the play-off final against Carlisle. Finishing fourth in the previous season, Stockport has demonstrated resilience and determination, making them serious contenders for the title. Their odds currently stand at 6/1, keeping them hot on Wrexham’s heels.
While Wrexham and Stockport steal the spotlight, other teams have also positioned themselves as formidable challengers. Notts County, Mansfield, Bradford, Gillingham, and MK Dons are all in the mix, each carrying odds of 10/1 or higher. These teams have demonstrated their abilities and will be vying for a shot at promotion and the ultimate prize of lifting the League Two trophy.
Among the teams in the mix, Bradford stands out with an impressive sixth-place finish in the previous season. Despite their strong performance, they currently carry odds of 12/1, making them a potentially lucrative bet for those looking to wager on an underdog.

- Wrexham – 4/1
