Here's the big question: Will Phelps get another 8 gold in London or will he settle for a couple of silvers? Lochte can beat him in the 100 free. Their trial races were epic, both decided by a fraction of a fraction of a second.
Phelps dropped the individual 200 free, so 7 gold is the most that is possible. I think Lochte will beat him in the 400im. Phelps is too old to do that race. I also think that he will not win the 100 fly. That said, we didn't see phelps at 100% at trials, and being the greatest swimmer (arguably athlete) of all time I wouldn't be surprised to see 7 gold.
