Reminds me of something Ben Mayhew (e361) used to do, though he hasn't produced a similar graphic for this season. Dunno if your friend is using similar xG/based probabilities but Mayhew did the same thing with running thousands of simulations to see which was the most common outcome.

We stand out like a sore thumb. At the end of January we are given the probability of automatic promotion as 80%, with Cambridge on 50.6% being the only other club given a greater likelihood than 50/50; and As recently as the 21st of Feb still given 80% probability of making the top 7. Now it gives us 0% of automatic promotion and 10% of top 7.

2021 can suck a bag of dicks.

The outcome by points is an interesting way of showing how many points might be needed for survival promotion etc

After our last two shit results our chance of promotion is down to a measly 4.8%. Looking forward to try another year in this forsaken division.

so we're up to 21st at present - but it's predicting we end up 15-16th. We'll take that.
It's also saying if we win all our remaining games we have an almost 50% chance of making the play offs..... i'll comment on that if we get to 15 wins on the trot, lol....

1.7% chance of relegation is a bit more positive after recent weeks.
