Swindon Town’s hard-fought win over Bury has seen their odds of winning League One cut to 11/2, while top three sides, Tranmere Rovers, Stevenage and Sheffield United, have also been trimmed after picking up weekend victories.
Paolo Di Canio’s men were 1-0 winners at Gigg Lane thanks to a first-minute Matt Ritchie strike and are now up to fourth place in the table after four victories in their past five outings.
The Blades remain favourites to win the title at 11/4 despite sitting in third – six points behind leaders Tranmere – after beating Leyton Orient, with Nick Blackman scoring the only goal of the game.
Like Danny Wilson’s men and Stevenage, Tranmere are still unbeaten this season after substitute Joe Thompson gave them a narrow 1-0 triumph over much-fancied Notts County and Rovers are now 15/2 to win the title.

Boro, for their part, beat struggling Scunthorpe United, also by a 1-0 scoreline, to stay in second place and their title odds have shortened to 11/1.
Despite coming back from 2-0 down to salvage a draw at home to Portsmouth, MK Dons’ have drifted out to 5/1 to win the league after the weekend’s result saw them slip to fifth place.
Before the weekend’s matches, the Dons were favourites to be promoted but now it is Sheffield United who head the market at 6/5, with Karl Robinson’s men now priced at 6/4. Swindon and Tranmere are just behind at 8/5 and 5/2 respectively.
Brentford’s promotion odds have shortened to 5/1 after an impressive 2-1 victory over Crawley Town – their fifth game unbeaten – with Clayton Donaldson scoring both goals.
That result at Griffin Park, where the two sides meet again in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy on Tuesday, saw Town’s odds of reaching the Championship slide from 7/2 to 9/2.
