WATCH: Steve Freeth's EFL play-off predictions

We caught up with Steve Freeth to get his thoughts on which teams will earn promotion in the EFL play-offs.

It's a time for agony and ecstasy for fans of EFL clubs, as four teams battle it out for promotion in the Championship, League One and League Two.

Some teams will have to quickly forget their failure to seal automatic promotion, while others will have to build on the momentum gained by sealing their play-off spots on the final day.

It promises to be a thrilling end to the EFL season, and Steve Freeth is on hand to talk us through those looking to end their season in style at Wembley.

Who will go up in the Championship play-offs?

Middlesbrough - 13/8
Luton - 11/4
Sunderland - 11/4
Coventry - 7/2

Steve Freeth's Championship verdict

Middlesbrough are clear favourites at 13/8 to win the play-offs, who would have thought that when Michael Carrick came in?

I just feel with a few injuries that they are gettable at that price and they're far too short. Coventry City are the 7/2 outsiders and for me that could be the value play in the Championship play-offs.

Who will go up in the League One play-offs?

Sheff Wed - 6/4
Barnsley - 5/2
Bolton - 7/2
Peterborough - 4/1

Steve Freeth's League One verdict

Let's be honest, 96 points is enough to win the title normally.

24 clean sheets, unbeaten at home since September, it was just that spell from mid-March where they failed to win in six games. They were 1/33 to be promoted then, they’re now 6/4 favourites. I think it's going to be Sheffield Wednesday's time.

Who will go up in the League Two play-offs?

Stockport - 7/4
Carlisle - 11/4
Bradford - 3/1
Salford - 10/3

Steve Freeth's League Two verdict

It's Stockport who start favourites at 7/4, one defeat since January, defensively sound, and I'm a big fan of Fraser Horsfall from a set-piece so look out for him. Carlisle at second favourites are a little bit too short for me.

I just think that favourites Stockport will continue their rise up the football league and will be playing League One football next season.
