More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

More Reliable Than A League 1 Octopus? (20/9/17)

Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League One positions for the season of 2017/18.

Last season the Octopus feature was a late arrival for League 1 - it was off having its tentacles given a Brazilian for all I know.

Then again I still don't know why I call a number crunching supercomputer an Octopus but some things are probably best left unasked.

In any event here are the updated League 1 predictions for the season of 2017/18 after most sides have played at least eight games of the campaign.

Who goes down?! Who is the current favourite to lift the title this year?

Well you don't have to guess.

With most playing eight games in League 1 in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Wigan Athletic, but they are followed by Shrewsbury Town who trail by 13 points.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Peterborough United, Blackburn Rovers, Bradford City and Blackpool are all comfortable.

At the other end of the table it also pretty nailed on with Rochdale, Oldham Athletic, Bury and Plymouth Argyle predicted to go down. Rochdale are five points shy of Wimbledon in the safety spots.

The one thing that can't be ignored though is there is a hell of a lot of football still to be played and sides start well and fade away and others find form as the months tick by, but this is a bit of fun - I wouldn't bet your house on it!

The predictions are a reflection on the season so far, and absolutely nothing more, and in most cases the next fixture weekend could cause wholescale changes to the table.
