Leeds are predicted to meet Cardiff City in the play-off semi-finals while Villa will clash with Bristol City.
Runaway leaders Wolves are expected to romp to the Championship table, according to the predictor, which is based on a system called Elo.

Wolves are given a 95 per cent chance of winning the title, despite there still being 20 league fixtures left to play.
Derby County are predicted to finish second and end their nine-year exile from the Premier League.
Elsewhere, Birmingham are tipped to finish bottom of the table, with Sunderland and Burton joining them in League One.
Blues, who currently sit 23rd in the table, are given a 56 per cent chance of ending up in the bottom three.
Hull, Burton and Barnsley will avoid relegation by the skin of their teeth.
Other predictions include Middlesbrough, Sheffield United, Fulham and Preston falling short in their bid for a play-off spot, and Ipswich beating East Anglia rivals Norwich to a top-half finish.
