More Reliable Than A League 2 Octopus? (2/2/18)

More Reliable Than A League 2 Octopus? (2/2/18)

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 most sides have played 29 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 at least 28 games in League 2 in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Luton Town with 89 points, followed by Notts County on 82 and Lincoln City on 82.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Wycombe Wanderers, Exeter City, Coventry City and Mansfield Town. Wycombe miss out on automatic promotion by goal difference, as do Exeter, but Lincoln City miss out on the Play Offs by six clear points.

At the other end of the table it's also pretty nailed on with Forest Green Rovers and Chesterfield 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 even though we find ourselves in February and sides that have started well may fade away and others could 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 day could cause wholescale changes to the table.
