<2.25> <3.10> <2.77>

West Ham have had a dreadful 2008 - consecutive 4-0 losses to 10 man Chelsea, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspurs. With the longest injury list in the EPL, West Ham haven't been at their best recently. Even with a resurgent Dean Ashton, Portsmouth have too much confidence going into this game. With an in form Jermain Defoe and the 2nd meanest defence in the EPL outside of the top 4 (thanks to David James), together with a healthy squad with very few injuries, I'm very sure that the African Nations will be able to win at Upton Park.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Portsmouth @ 2.77 = $27.70

Well well i see roland has cast his first bet of the challenge. usually this is not a match I would touch, but since he's thrown the challenge down to me, i will express my views on this match. This is one of those matches where all 3 outcomes wouldn't really surprise anyone. West Ham will point to their recent 2-1 victory at home to blackburn rovers, while portsmouth have despatched both wigan and west brom convincingly in the past 2 matches. however, i fancy this one to end in a draw, with an almighty tussle in midfield with muntari and diarra against parker and mullins meaning that both teams will not be able to build up any rhythm.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on Draw @ 3.10 = $15.50
