The Football season gets into full swing on Saturday afternoon as the SkyBet Football Leagues open the season with the first set of matches.

Sheffield United officially kicked off the new campaign as they defeated Notts County 2-1 in League One on Friday night and on Saturday 88 other sides begin their competitive seasons.

SkyBet Championship

The first match of the day tomorrow is an all-Lancashire affair as Burnley face Bolton Wanderers live on Sky Sports 1 at lunchtime. Bolton narrowly missed out on a play-off spot last season but the betting forecasts for this game are extremely close.

The bookies can’t seem to pick a favourite with a Burnley win being available at 7/4 with Stan James whilst the best odds on a Bolton win is also 7/4, with Bet Victor amongst others.

Other notable games on Saturday see Wigan Athletic travel to Burnley for their first Championship game since 2005. They are favourites to win this one and are at 13/10 with Paddy Power, whilst Bet 365 offer the best odds on a Barnsley win at 5/2.

Reading make their return to the Championship with a home match against Ipswich and are favourites to take the win at 10/11 with Ladbrokes. Bet 365 are offering odds of 15/4 for an Ipswich win.

Yeovil face an intimidating crowd for their first ever Championship game away at Millwall and are available at 7/2 with Bet 365. Millwall will be confident of a win and are best priced with Ladbrokes at 19/20.

QPR are the bookies early season favourites to win the Championship this season and are at home to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and are favourite to win, being priced at 4/5 with Paddy Power.

In terms of the title outright, Rangers are available at 13/2 with Bet Victor. After the pain of the final day last season, Bolton seem well placed to challenge for the title and are priced at 9/1 with Paddy Power, whilst Reading are available at the same price with Ladbrokes.

Other teams to look out for include play-off semi-finalists Watford, who are priced at 10/1 with Stan James whilst Nottingham Forest are available at 11/1 with Paddy Power.

SkyBet League One

Following their double-relegation, Wolves are tipped to finally taste success this season and are the early favourites to win the League One title this season. They are priced at 7/2 with Paddy Power.

Relegated Peterborough are available at 9/1 with Paddy Power whilst play-off finalists Brentford are also priced at 9/1 with Betfred to take the title.

Sheffield United, who were defeated in the play-off semi-finals by Yeovil in May, are currently priced at 10/1 with Ladbrokes.

SkyBet League Two

There are currently three teams who are significantly short-priced with the bookies, with Portsmouth the favourites to take the title. The club have endured a disastrous few seasons through financial issues but finally exited administration in April after being bought out by the Supporters Trust and are currently priced at 5/1 with Stan James.

Relegated Chesterfield are available at 7/1 with Bet Victor whilst big-spending Fleetwood Town are also priced at 7/1, with Betfred.
