BIRMINGHAM CITY are set for an instant return to the Championship, with Blackpool also joining them in the second tier in 2025 - but Wrexham will struggle in League One.

That is according to the Grosvenor Sport SuperComputer, a model created by a specifically curated code, which works as a probability model to predict the outcome of every single League One match and then simulates every fixture 1,000 times.

And the SuperComputer believes Birmingham are in line to almost reach a century of points, with Blackpool swiftly following them behind.

Lincoln City, Bolton Wanderers, Huddersfield Town and Peterborough United are all set to clinch Play-Off places as a result of strong seasons, with Wycombe Wanderers missing out by a single point.

At the other end of the table, Burton Albion have flirted with relegation from the third tier consistently, with the SuperComputer predicting their luck will finally run out this season and they will finish bottom of the pile.


As for Wrexham, they are being tipped to stay up but struggle as they finish in 19th spot in the table.

How does the SuperComputer work?

The SuperComputer is a probability model, not determined by human predictions or bias. What happens is the SuperComputer estimates the outcome of each remaining fixture based on a team’s current strength (based on factors such as league position and form) and betting market odds.

The machine then simulates the remaining games in a season 1,000 times and constructs an average league table from the 1,000 simulations, to rule out anomalous results.
