More Reliable Than A League 2 Octopus? (4/12/17)
Time for the special computer that crunches the numbers to determine the final League Two positions for the season of 2017/18.
Last season the Octopus feature was a late arrival for League Two - 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 2 predictions for the season of 2017/18 after all sides have played 20 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 all playing 20 games in League 2 in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Luton Town with 102 points, followed by Notts County on 91 and Accrington Stanley on 83.
The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Exeter City, Wycombe Wanderers, Mansfield Town and Coventry City. Lincoln City miss out by a single point.
At the other end of the table it's also pretty nailed on with Port Vale and Barnet set for relegation.
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! Nearing the halfway mark though, the table will soon take on a more real shape.
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 give how tight the predicted points are.
