<4.80> <3.30> <1.62>

portsmouth come into this game on the back of a horrible 4-match losing streak in the epl. however, the epl had ended a long time ago for them, and really they were just going through the motions, in preparation for their first fa cup final in 69 years. they have to win this, not only because it would be a major embarrassment if they didn't, but also because they have to win this to qualify for the uefa cup, or redknapp would be left red-faced, as he totally eased off in the epl when he could have had a go at securing a uefa cup spot through league placing. i see pompey coming out on top in this final.

- Eddy's prediction: $5 on portsmouth @ 1.62 = $8.10
$10 on portsmouth to lift the fa cup @ 1.28 = $12.80

Portsmouth have the better quality. David James and Sol Campbell are set to return. While Jermain Defoe is cup tied, I still fancy the likes of Kranjcar, Muntari, Utaka to beat Cardiff, who haven't really been impressive. Furthermore, history is on Pompey's side - for the last 5 years every team that beat Manchester United won the FA cup.

- Roland's prediction: $10 on Portsmouth @ 1.62 = $16.20
$10 on Portsmouth to lift the fa cup @ 1.28 = $12.80
