Posh at long odds for the title
Posh are 18/1 to win the 2016 -17 League One title with Sky Bet. They are 10th favourites. That’s the longest odds Posh have been at the start of a season in this division since their relegation from the Championship at the end of the 201213 campaign.

Grant McCann’s men are 9/4 to finish in the top six and 40/1 to finish bottom.
You can get 16/1 on Posh winning the League One playoffs before a competitive ball has been kicked!
