Plenty Of Bluebird Smiles Predicted At Season End

Plenty Of Bluebird Smiles Predicted At Season End

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

Last season the Octopus feature was a late arrival for the Championship - 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 Championship predictions for the season of 2017/18 after all sides have played 33 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 some playing 34 games in the Championship in the season of 2017/18, the current favourite to lift the title are Wolverhampton Wanderers with 99 points. Cardiff City sit in second place on 87.

The Play Off spots are also pretty nailed on if the predictions are to be believed - Aston Villa, Derby County, Fulham and Bristol City. Middlesbrough lose out by two points.

At the other end of the table it's also pretty nailed on with Burton Albion, Birmingham City and Sunderland all predicted for the drop. Barnsley in 21st place escape by four points.

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 almost in March 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.

For Cardiff City specifically, a late surge in the remaining games in the Championship sees them move from fourth into second place in the table, with a return of four more points in their predicted tally which rises to 87 for the season of 2017/18.

Cardiff take the second automatic spot by a point from Aston Villa to return to the top flight and avoid the lottery that is the Play Offs according to the Octopus.

And the live by the match predictions, how do we stand now?
