Luton Town vs Sunderland prediction, betting odds
Both sides ended the regular season in strong form, as Luton missed out on an automatic promotion spot, and Sunderland hit the playoffs on a nine-game unbeaten run.
Momentum is always crucial in the EFL Championship playoffs, and that favours Sunderland, with a third 1-1 draw between the pair this season enough to see Mowbray's side into the final.
