2016-2017 League One Profit & Loss League Tables

League One concluded on Saturday as Millwall beat Bradford at Wembley 1-0 in the play-off final to join Sheffield United (finally) and Bolton in promotion to the Championship next season.

Meanwhile Chesterfield, who finished bottom, Coventry and Swindon will all be playing in League Two after suffering relegation.

But which teams yielded the biggest profit and which teams were the ones to avoid?

2016/2017 League One Profit & Loss League Tables

Below we’ve created three tables:

  • Home & Away Record combined.
  • Home Record only.
  • Away Record only.

The tables rank all 24 League One sides based on who yielded the most profit (1) to who yielded the least profit (20) based on a £10 base stake on teams to win every game.

In case you were wondering, we also have Profit & Loss tables available for the Premier League and Championship and League Two.

Key

  • P/L = Profit/Loss
  • ROI = Total P/L as a % of total stakes if £10 was staked on the team to win every game.

Conclusion

In summary, Fleetwood, who seemed to be over-priced by bookmakers for most of the season, yielded the biggest profit overall and would have pocketed you around £187 if you backed them to win in every game with £10.

Despite winning just 10/23  games at New Meadow, Shrewsbury yielded the biggest profit at home (+£95) while MK Dons were the worst team to back and it’s no surprise after Robbie Neilson’s side managed a joint league-low of just 7 wins on their own patch.

Meanwhile Coventry were the team to avoid overall and would have cost you around £208 had you backed them to win all 46 games this season with £10. Furthermore, with just a single victory on the road in 23 games, The Sky Blues would have had you around £200 in the red had you backed them in every away away. Not good.
