#PickYourPunt @ 7/1
Under 2.5 total goals (90 mins)
With just 113 goals scored between them in 92 combined matches, Coventry and Luton are the two lowest-scoring sides in the Championship top six, and seven of their last eight combined games have produced fewer than three goals.
In fact, eight of the last 10 Championship playoff finals have produced fewer that three goals, suggesting a low-scoring affair could be on the cards here.
Coventry edged past Middlesbrough in the semi-finals with a single goal scored across 180 minutes of football and defensive resilience will be key once again when they meet a Luton side with the joint second-best defensive record in the division this season.
The most recent encounter between the two sides, back in February, ended 1-1 in the West Midlands so I don’t think there will be a great deal to split the teams on Saturday.
Over 39.5 booking points (90 mins)
Both sides picked up six cautions across both legs of their semi-final clashes and with this being a game of such high magnitude, I can see there being a number of fouls here in order to break up the game.
Coventry picked up 87 yellow cards, and three red cards over the course of the Championship season, while Luton received 81 cautions and four dismissals.
If you’re unfamiliar with booking points, essentially, one yellow card is worth 10 booking points and one red card is worth 25 booking points.
Viktor Gyokeres to score anytime (90 mins)
The 24-year-old has scored 22 goals in 49 appearances across all competitions for Coventry this season.
His importance to Coventry can’t be understated and he undoubtedly holds the keys to victory and any chance of promotion to the Premier League on Saturday against Luton – the Sky Blues are heavily reliant on him in attack, despite a relatively poor run of form in front of goal in recent weeks.
