Sunderland will be celebrating promotion at Wembley on May 30 - if the bookmakers odds are anything to go by.

The Black Cats have been installed as 15/8 favourites to come through the League One play-offs and return to the Championship.

Lee Johnson's men are ahead of current third-placed side Blackpool in the betting, with the Tangerines priced at 11/4 for promotion.

Lincoln, the third side to have guaranteed a play-off spot are priced at 3/1.

Everything rests on Sunday's final-day results, with each of Sunderland, Blackpool or Lincoln capable of finishing in third, fourth or fifth, depending on who fares better in their games with Northampton, Bristol Rovers and AFC Wimbledon respectively.

Whoever finishes third will face either Portsmouth, Oxford or Charlton in the play-off semi-final, with the remaining two sides playing each other over two legs.

Pompey currently hold sixth place, and as a result are 9/2 to win promotion, with Oxford 12/1 and Charlton outsiders at around 40/1.

That reflects the fact the Addicks must beat champions Hull and hope neither Oxford nor Portsmouth beat Burton or Accrington respectively.

It promises to be an enthralling final day, but the bookies are backing the Black Cats to be a Championship side next term.
