Opening weekend League 2 betting preview

Who are you backing on the opening weekend?

Following the announcement of the Sky Bet Football League fixtures on Wednesday morning, Football League title sponsor Sky Bet is on the mark with match prices for the opening day clashes.

The Grecians are hosting Portsmouth at St James Park on the opening weekend and Sky Bet are offering odds of 13/8 for a home win, with Portsmouth at 11/8 to take the three points.

New boys to the Sky Bet Football League Luton Town will not be thanking the fixture computer for a long trip on the opening day to Brunton Park, but fans can get great value on an away win at 6/4

Fellow promoted side Cambridge United host Plymouth Argyle and go in to the match as narrow favourites (5/4) on their return to League football.

After the disappointment of defeat at Wembley in late May, Burton Albion (13/8) will be looking to start well but have been handed a tough trip to Oxford United (11/8).

Not only are Sky Bet the first place to get your bets on, if you open an account with Sky Bet, you get a £30 free bet and Exeter City will benefit with a share of revenue.  Sign up by heading to
