OK this is my attempt at the League One promotion and relegation races. Looks like it's going to take a particularly high number of points to get into the Championship this year. I believe the divisional promotion winning average is 87 points this century. Does seem to be two leagues forming at the top (although this has actually been pretty evident for a while), with the top 5 breaking pretty clear from the rest.

AFC Wimbledon certainly making this thread much longer than it needs to be. Certainly a lot closer at the bottom of the division than it is at the top. At the moment there are 4 teams that are projected to get 49 points based on PPG and would be scraping to escape that final relegation place.

Update 24 Feb 2019

Really interesting day and week as a lot of the games in the hand at the top have evened themselves out - disastrous for the bottom four as they all lost, with those above them winning away from home. It does appear a bit more spread out down there than it was a week ago.

Sunderland push the promotion line up after a really good week for them. Right now, both Barnsley and Sunderland are projected to get 91 with Luton to get 99 (playing tomorrow). Portsmouth are now 8 games without a win. It looks increasingly like a three horse race for 2 positions but a team with a lot of points going home disappointed into the play off lottery.

Meanwhile with no one really wanting that 6th place, it could be one of the lower points totals that gets into that play offs this season; it is now projected that Luton will make the play offs even if they lose their last 13 games.

Update 2 Mar 2019

All the lines are moving up, with the most stark increase the relegation line, with 50 points may not proving enough this year. A lot of teams are suddenly having their tails chased in the bottom half, but it looks pretty desperate for Bradford and AFC Wimbledon.

At the top, Portsmouth are just about hanging on to make it a 4 horse race for 2 spots, but they can really only drop a handful of points for the remainder of the season to get in there - looks pretty improbable on recent form, bar today. The top 3 just keep winning games. I'm sure one of those are going to do everything to deserve promotion but just miss out.
