Unless he has some really shitty luck, Wiggins should win. Evans and Menchov and MAYBE Gesink will be there or there abouts.
Green Jersey: Sagan, Goss, Kittel or Greipel. Probably Sagan as he'll be able to pick up points in stages that the pure sprinters will not.(Cavendish has stated that its not his aim and with his recent weight loss, even he has said he doesnt expect to be as dominant in flat bunch sprints now.)
Polka Dot Jersey: Dan Martin or someone from a french team whose sponsors demand some media coverage.
White Jersey: Van Garderen or Stephen Kreusjwik (sp?)
That's certainly a possibility (one that hopefully wont happen!).
But you've also got to think of all the riders there going for yellow who dont have as strong a TT as Wiggins, Evans or Menchov, they NEED to go for broke in the mountains to make up as much time on the stronger TT guys as possible. Whether they can make enough time to defend depends on how aggresive they want to be.
That said, Wiggins has looked like a world class climber in the last ten months or so and i'd be surprised to see him getting dropped that often (especially with the unbelievably strong team he has with him), who knows, he might even try something himself!
I'm calling Wiggins, Froome, Porte and Rogers to team up and do something like this:
