More Reliable Than A League 2 Octopus? (18/10/17)

More Reliable Than A League 2 Octopus? (18/10/17)

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 14 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 14 games in League 2 in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Luton Town with 106 points, followed by Exeter City on 88 and Notts County on 87.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Wycombe Wanderers, Newport County, Swindon Town and Accrington Stanley all sneak in. Stevenage miss out by three points.

At the other end of the table it also pretty nailed on with Chesterfield and Forest Green Rovers predicted to go down, and Chesterfield are 12 points shy of Port Vale 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 give how tight the predicted points are.
