The bookies are predicting a struggle against relegation for the Bulls, just like they did 12 months ago.
Leicester are 4/1 favourites in the first list to be compiled by BlueSq, with Leeds 9/2 second favourites. The Bulls are 40/1, along with Crewe, Bristol Rovers, Yeovil, and Hartlepool, with only Cheltenham behind them at 66/1.
Beaten play-off semi-finalists Carlisle and Southend are expected to challenge at 10/1 and 12/1 with relegated Colchester (11/1) and Scunthorpe (12/1). Peterboro are 14/1 seventh favourites, with MK Dons joint 8th at 16/1 along with Brighton and Tranmere.
Last summer, the Bulls were also a 40/1 shot with both relegated teams ahead of them in the betting at 25/1 and 33/1. The previous season they were 20/1 shots.
