England National League North Odds
Back in 2004, the English lower leagues had a major restructuring and this was where the 'Conference North' was created. The first team to win the competition was Southport and the most recent team to win the competition were AFC Flyde, both teams are the only two sides to have won the division more than once, with AFC Flyde's first win coming in 2016-17.
In this division only one team gets promoted automatically and that is the title winner. However, similar to the other English leagues, there is a play-off round that determines which team will be promoted to the National League. This happens alongside the team that gets promoted from the National League South as well.
At the other end of the table, four teams are relegated and are subsequently relegated to the Northern Premier League or the Southern Football League, depending on the location of the teams across the two leagues.

National League North Promotion Odds
The promotion betting market for the National League North is harder to predict than it is for most leagues. Every section of the National League follows the same format but the Football League is completely different, with only two teams achieving promotion in each National League season across the main league and the North/South divisions.

National League North Relegation Odds
The National Leagues have four spots dedicated to relegation, which most of the time leads to an exciting battle to avoid relegation at the end of the season. However, if you're looking to back teams either to be relegated or avoid relegation, you'll often find that the teams who remained in the division are more likely to sit in the relegation spots than teams who were promoted or relegated from the divisions around them.
Often, teams that come-up perform well and push for the top positions due to the difficulty of getting out of the lower leagues, many teams get promoted 1-2 years after they should just due to the competitiveness of the league. Then when teams get relegated from the National League, they are often at least mid-table quality, there are exceptions to this but for the most part, these teams sit above the drop zone and it is the clubs positioned in the previous years bottom half that are at the biggest risk of relegation.
