Hatters League 2 Favourites

In our League 2 preview last month we said our preference from the top two in the ante-post betting was for Luton at 7/1 and although the Hatters are 5 points behind leaders Exeter after the first five games, they have really caught the eye of odds compilers – who now make them a best price of just 9/4.

Mansfield were title favourites after some impressive early transfer activity, but Luton last week clinched the best deal of the window when they signed Luke Berry (pictured above) from Cambridge. Berry scored 22 goals from midfield last season and could have gone to a higher level, but instead will link up James Collins and Danny Hylton, who guarantee goals.

Luton have drawn their last two games, away at Mansfield and Lincoln, but have scored 11 goals in their two home matches so far and they will take some stopping – those best odds of 9/4 on them to win the League 2 title are at Sky Bet or BetVictor.
