This year’s Conference Play-Off final is a fixture that has traditionally been contested by in the football league.
Hard times have befallen both Luton Town and York City on and off the pitch in recent years but Sunday’s showdown is a chance for one of them to return to the ranks of exclusively professional teams where both sets of supporters believe their club belong.
Just two points separated the two sides in the final Conference table, yet despite Luton finishing behind York they are marignal favourites ahead of the match.
Looking back at recent results between these two sides, York’s excellent record makes them a tempting proposition.
The Hatters are priced at 13/10 to win in normal time in bwin’s 3Way football betting market, while York are offered at 37/20 and the draw is available at 21/10.
Yet looking back at recent results between these two sides, York’s excellent record makes them a tempting proposition.
They have won six out of the last eight meetings, including three this season, losing only once.
Backing York at an attractive looking price therefore looks like a shrewd investment, especially when you consider their decent run of form – they are unbeaten in nine matches and have just claimed the FA Trophy with a victory over Newport County.
Also worthy of consideration is investing in over 2.5 goals offered at 19/20.
This bet has paid out in three of the last six meetings between the sides, and both sides comfortably averaged over 2.5 goals a game during the Conference season.
To this end it could also be worth backing both teams to score at 18/25, with York having scored in 15 of their last 16 games, and Luton finding the net in nine of their previous 11 matches.
York to win in normal time @ 37/20
Over 2.5 goals @ 19/20
Both sides to score @ 18/25
