EFL Championship Play-Offs: Coventry & Luton Eyeing the Premier League

The race to win promotion to the Premier League culminates on Saturday as Coventry City and Luton Town go head-to-head in the Championship Play-Off Final.

Dubbed ‘the richest game in football’ due to the lucrative nature of the English top flight, the clash at Wembley Stadium is guaranteed to provide plenty of drama.

The fixture also offers punters a ton of wagering opportunities, with all of the best football betting sites already offering odds on the outcome.

Read on as we take a closer look at Championship Play-Off Final and pick out three betting angles we believe are worth considering.


  • Over 2.5 goals market looks tempting
  • Viktor Gyokeres to score any time
  • Penalty shoot-out on the cards

Attacking Talents Could Buck Recent Trend

Goals have been hard to come by in recent finals, with eight of the last ten matches seeing two or less goals scored during the 90 minutes.

However, both teams have looked threatening in attack over the last few weeks and have plenty of players who can buck that trend.

On that basis, the odds of 13/10 available with Betzone for over 2.5 goals in the match looks an extremely tempting proposition.

Sweltering temperatures are forecast in London on Saturday, which will likely result in plenty of tired legs as the game progresses

In-Form Gyokeres Fancied to Score

Coventry’s Viktor Gyokeres has netted 21 goals in the Championship this season, the second-highest tally of any player in the second tier.

Despite not getting on the scoresheet in the semi-final against Middlesbrough, the Swedish international caused plenty of problems for their defence.

He looks well worth an interest at odds of 5/2 on several UK betting sites to get his name on the scoresheet against Luton this weekend.

Gyokeres scored against the Hatters earlier in the season and will undoubtedly fancy his chances of adding to his tally at Wembley.

Penalties Needed to Split the Two Sides?

There was nothing to separate the two sides in their two regular season meetings, with their games in September and February finishing as draws (2-2 & 1-1).

It is likely to be a similar story this weekend and it would be no surprise to see extra time and penalties needed to separate them on this occasion.

Both sides are priced at 15/2 with 10bet to win via a shoot-out, which could tempt punters looking for a fun wager to keep them interested throughout the game.

A £10 bet on each outcome would deliver a guaranteed £65 profit if the game goes to penalties.
