Portsmouth have lost Harry Redknapp who single handedly masterminded their rise from relegation battling to UEFA Cup challengers and FA cup winners. The players are definitely loyal to Redknapp - Defoe was brought in by Redknapp because he has worked with Defoe before. As such, with a new manager in Tony Adams, who is relatively untested, I fear that the Portsmouth players will not be able to be fully motivated when they step on the pitch. There have been many rumours about Redknapp making a move for some Portsmouth players and I think they will affect the Portsmouth performance. Wigan have lost 4 in a row and Steve Bruce will not let them drop even further down the table, so I think Wigan on the handicap looks good for this match.

Roland's prediction: $5 on Wigan +0.5 @ 1.950 = $9.75

agree with roland here. wigan are a really good side, although their defence is a bit of a weak link. they should be good enough not to lose 5 in a row, and that's why i think the handicap is a solid option to go for tonight. besides, portsmouth do not have sol campbell available, and i think heskey and zaki could prove quite a handful for distin and kaboul.

Eddy's prediction: $5 on Wigan +0.5 @ 1.950 = $9.75
