Sunderland and Sheffield Wednesday are among the favourites with the bookmakers at present, despite both clubs being relatively quiet in the transfer market.
Following last season’s dreadful collapse, Doncaster Rovers are rebuilding under new boss Richie Wellens and, once again, this summer has seen a high turnover of players.
So with that in mind, where do the experts think that Rovers will finish this season?
Experts at BonusBetCodes have put together their predicted table for the new League One season, using an algorithm that analysed informative betting markets including title winner, top six, top half finish and relegation.
But what do they mean for Doncaster? Will it be a season of consolidation or can they push for a top six finish?
5. 20th - Accrington Stanley
Usually well clear of relegation danger, Accrington were in contention for a play-off place for much of last year. The experts, however, feel this season could be a different affair for the North West side.

6. 19th - Crewe Alexandra
Having seen some of their talented academy graduates depart over recent months, may this be a slightly more difficult campaign for Crewe? The experts believe that may be the case.

7. 18th - Shrewsbury Town
The Shrews have made some eye-catching signings this summer and were much-improved under Steve Cotterill last season - but the experts don't feel that will be enough to lift them higher in the League One table.

8. 17th - Plymouth Argyle
Plymouth beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light last season, but struggled for consistency. That may be the case again with a bottom half finish forecast by the experts.
