Share CHELSEA V PORTSMOUTH BETTING TIPS (FA Cup final May 15): I fear for Portsmouth in what may the the most 1 sided FA cup final in recent years. Chelsea have found a new ruthless streak under Ancelotti and they really look like they can score against the 'lesser sides' every time they go forward...

Ancelotti has found a way to play Anelka and Drogba in tandem and Lampard is excelling in his new role. Malouda also looks like a new player after a terrible first season at the Bridge. Malouda looks a value bet to score anytime at 7/4 (Ladbrokes) and serious value to be first goalscorer @ 9.4 on the Betting Exchanges but it's the "Man Of The Match" and the handicaps that get my attention here. 21/10 on sporting bet looks good value on Chelsea to win by 3 or more given the explosive form they are in and the fact they don't sit on a lead anymore. The MOTM market looks fantastic with Paddypower currently going 11/2 both Drogba and Lampard. You can be sure that if all goes to plan, both the aforementioned will have a big say and backing them both could yield a big return. If Jamie Redknapp is in the studio and has an influence, he will do everything he can to give it to his cousin (unknowingly) - a factor I benefited seriously off in seasons past before some firms pulled the plug for the majority of matches on a market they were very vulnerable in.
