Luton to beat Birmingham
Birmingham City are starting the season with plenty of questions hanging over them.
The Blues are in the middle of a takeover, have a new manager and have done unremarkable business in the transfer market.
They finished last season winless in six and, against a Luton side who look good for another play-off tilt, should see that become seven.
MK Dons to beat Cambridge
Cambridge start this season in worse shape than they finished the last, having lost full back Jack Iredale and playmaker Wes Hoolahan.
The U’s have lost all four of their competitive meetings with MK Dons, who will arrive full of confidence after an impressive 2021/22 campaign.
MK were beaten in the play-off semi-final last season and after a productive summer of incomings are justifiably considered among the promotion favourites.
Peterborough to beat Cheltenham
Peterborough return to League One stacked with firepower including Mo Eisa, Jack Marriott and Jonson Clarke-Harris, who netted 31 league goals in his last season at this level in 2020/21.
Posh are also managed by Grant McCann, who won the 2020/21 League One title with Hull.
Cheltenham, meanwhile, have lost manager Michael Duff, who was largely responsible for their rise to League One, while their summer transfer business looks uninspiring.
Fleetwood to beat Port Vale
This feels like a massive price for Port Vale to lose considering that they look underprepared for the coming season.
Last season’s League Two play-off winners made five of their six summer signings in the last four days, none of which are especially eye-catching.
Fleetwood start this season with new manager Scott Brown and look in a good place to put a disappointing 2021/22 campaign behind them.
Northampton to beat Colchester
Northampton look well placed to get over last season’s play-off semi-final defeat this term.
The arrivals of goalkeeper Lee Burge, midfielder Ben Fox and striker Danny Hylton, who has scored 50 goals in his last two seasons at this level, are worth getting excited about.
Colchester look to have gone backwards since finishing 15th last season and will struggle to get anything out of this one.
