Coventry haven't been in amazing form of late having won just two of their last five matches but we fancy them to take a point here. The Sky Blues are unbeaten in four games at home winning two and drawing two. Luton meanwhile aren't in bad form on the road either; they've lost two of their last three on the road but, longer term, they've won three of their last five. The Hatters thrashed Coventry earlier in the season but two of their last three visits to Coventry have ended in a share of the spoils.
A low scoring match
This tip is all about trying to find the value in the betting odds, which is why we're going for an under 2.5 total goals bet. Luton are the team that bring the doubt with four of their last five away games going north of the 2.5 mark. Countering that though is Coventry's home form; their last four at home have all gone south of 2.5. Three of the last five meetings between these sides where Coventry have been the home side have gone under 2.5 whilst averaging a total of just 1.8 goals per game.

Coventry vs Luton: It's predicted lineup time
If you were asked a few months ago what team were most likely to make the top six there would probably have been a fair few leaning towards the Sky Blues. Coventry have dropped off in the second half of the campaign though whilst Luton have quietly gone about their business. Both though could force their way into the playoff conversation though.
Coventry Predicted Lineup
Coventry started this season really well but they've not been good enough lately and, whilst still possible, it feels like their chances of making the playoffs are done and dusted. That said. if they beat Luton they'll move level on points with the Hatters who sit in eighth.
Predicted lineup – Moore, Clarke-Salter, McFazdean, Rose, Kane, Bidwell, Hamer, Sheaf, Maatsen, Allen, Gyokeres
Luton Predicted Lineup
Luton are only three points above Coventry but the whole playoff picture feels very different for them. They're only one point behind sixth and, importantly, they have showed the ability to string wins together in recent weeks. Another win here would all but kill any hope Coventry have of making the top six whilst strengthening their own hand.
Predicted lineup – Palmer, Burke, Lockyer, Naismith, Bell, Campbell, Osho, Bree, Hylton, Adebayo, Cornick
