<2.15> <3.20> <2.85> Match code: 0307

Now this is a match that could go either way. Pompey haven't scored a lot, but they also have not conceded much. Newcastle were the team to bet against until 3 weeks ago, where they registered their first win under Keegan and proceeded to demolish Spurs and Reading. I'm banking on Newcastle's momentum to carry them through and defeat Portsmouth at Fratton Park. Reasons? Expect Newcastle's midfield trio of Butt, Barton and Geremi to keep the creative talents of Kranjcar shut, as well as the power of Muntari. Geremi is Cameroonian, nuff said. Butt has tonnes of experience which will effectively render Kranjcar useless. Without the supply line, Defoe will be effectively kept quiet. As for Newcastle's attack, the combination of pace (martins and owen), power (viduka) and experience (viduka and owen) will prove too lethal to a strong but ageing Portsmouth defence.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Newcastle @ 2.85 = $28.50
