League One Play-off Final Predictions and Tips Saturday 21 May

League one playoff final 2022

Wycombe Wanderers and Sunderland will meet in the League One play-off final on Saturday 22 May. With the Chairboys having overcome MK Dons in a tight two-legged tussl. While the Black Cats were able to secure a 1-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday before a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough.

It’s obviously a huge game at Wembley Stadium, with a place in the Championship up for grabs. And the expectation levels are bigger at the Stadium of Light. Alex Neil has done well since taking charge at the Wearside club. Although he will lock horns with a manager in Gareth Ainsworth has been in charge for over ten years at Adams Park.

Wycombe Wanderers and Sunderland AFC have already met twice this season:

Saturday 8 January 2022: Wycombe Wanderers 3-3 Sunderland

Saturday 28 August 2021: Sunderland 3-1 Wycombe Wanderers

Ross Stewart was at the double in August as Sunderland romped to a comfortable 3-1 win over Wycombe. And things looked a good deal more positive for Lee Johnson. However, the same manager was coming towards the end of his stint when the two teams played out an entertaining draw.

It was a crazy game which saw both teams score in the 90th minute. And the sides mustered seventeen shots on target between them on that occasion. We’re not sure how open the clash at Wembley will be, with Sunderland trading as strong favourites to get the job done. Why not learn more about how to win an Accumulator bet with the guide.

What Are the Best League One Play-Off Final Tips?

There was only one point separating the two teams in the final League One standings after forty-six games played. Therefore, Sunderland trading as short priced favourites doesn’t initially look like a value bet.

However, since losing at home to MK Dons on Saturday 19 February, the Wearside team have not lost a match. That unbeaten run now spans fifteen games and there have been more wins than draws over the past few months.

Ross Stewart has twenty-five goals to his name this season and looks easy to back to score first in the clash. With the Scot scoring the only goal of the game against Sheffield Wednesday and 21-year-old Jack Clarke looks to be an able foil for his strike partner.

Wycombe are likely to set up a lot more defensively than some of the recent scorelines suggest. With this in mind, a Sunderland win and BTTS No could be the way forward. The Black Cats will be happy to win ugly and a 1-0 correct score bet could be the wager. Why not read the guide on how to open a Paddy Power account for some tips on gaining more value.

What is the Best League One Play-Off Final Bet Builder?

As per the above comments, go for a Sunderland win and Ross Stewart to score to kick things off. We also think that the Black Cats will have a nice amount of corners. So you can go for a lumpy amount to boost up the odds.

Joe Jacobson has made over 300 appearances for the Chairboys. Although the 35-year-old has been booked sixteen times this season. And he’s currently on a run of four yellows including the two play-off matches against MK Dons.
