Daggers as short as 9-1 to return to Football League by winning division this term
Dagenham & Redbridge will be among the favourites to win the National League this season – if the bookmakers’ odds are anything to go by.
After a strong start to their summer business, signing four players from National League rivals and tying two defenders down to longer deals, Daggers are ranked by many bookies as second favourites, with odds as short as 9-1.
Last year’s beaten play-off finalists Tranmere Rovers unsurprisingly start as favourites for the title, with odds as short as 3-1.
Others tipped to be in the mix at the top of the table, according to comparison site oddschecker.com, include Eastleigh, Aldershot Town, newly-promoted Fylde, Hartlepool United and Wrexham.
At the other end, the likes of Solihull Moors, Torquay United, newly-promoted Maidenhead United and Guiseley are all tipped to have a difficult season.

1. Tranmere Rovers
2. Dagenham & Redbridge
4. Aldershot Town
