As it turns out, EFL fans fancy Posh to keep their hopes for an immediate return to the Championship alive with play-off finish.
Elsewhere, Sheffield Wednesday narrowly missed out on promotion last season, but the Yorkshire club is predicted to be successful this time around with Derby County also tipped to bounce back after last season’s relegation. Barnsley, who are also dropping down a tier this season, aren’t in fact backed for promotion though with Ipswich, Bolton, Portsmouth and Posh favoured for the play-offs.
Forest Green are in League One for the first time in their history but if EFL fans are correct it won’t be for long as Rovers are tipped for the drop alongside fellow newly-promoted Exeter. Interestingly, fans also see Lancashire sides Fleetwood and Morecambe as favourites for the drop instead of the other two newly-promoted teams, Port Vale and Bristol Rovers.
The predicted table is as follows:
