Luton Town are favourites to beat Coventry City in Saturday's play-off final at Wembley according to a supercomputer.

Mark Robins' side will be looking to earn promotion to the Premier League when they face the Hatters in the match which is often labelled as 'the richest game in football' with around £140 million on the line.

Victory would seal a remarkable transformation at the CBS Arena from Robins since his arrival at the club in 2017. The former Manchester United striker will have taken them from the fourth tier of English football to the Premier League if they win.

But Luton finished ten points clear of the Sky Blues in the regular season and the supercomputer at Fivethirtyeight seems to have taken that into account when assessing who will come out on top at Wembley.

The number crunchers have given Coventry a 44% chance of earning promotion whilst Luton have been given a 56% chance of coming out on top.

A win on Saturday would see the Sky Blues return to the Premier League for the first time in 22 years, having played in the top-flight for 34 consecutive years between 1967 and 2001.
