2016-2017 Legaue Two Profit & Loss League Tables

League Two concluded on Sunday with Blackpool beating Exeter 2-1 at Wembley to gain promotion to League One next season and joining title winners Portsmouth and runners up Plymouth in the process.

Meanwhile, Leyton Orient who finished rock bottom, Hartlepool and Newport were all relegated and will be playing in the National League in August.

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

2016/2017 League Two 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 Two 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, Championship and League One too.

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, Plymouth yielded the biggest profit overall this season (around £181 from £10 takes) and it’s no surprise considering Derek Adams’ side were not expected to gain promotion by many and so were over-priced for a large part of the campaign.

Leyton Orient Yielded the least profit overall (-£156) and at home (-£127) after managing just 4 wins at Brisbane Road while Yeovil yielded the least profit away (-£120) after a league-low of just 3 wins on the road.

With a league-high of 14 wins on their own patch, Colchester would have made you the most profit at home (£111) by some distance too with Stevenage the second most profitable team to back at home (£48).

Exeter accumulated 13 wins on the the road (matched only by Plymouth) and yielded the highest return (£181).
