    Predict = to say that an event or action will happen in the future, especially as a result of knowledge or experience:

    Forecast = a statement of what is judged likely to happen in the future, especially in connection with a particular situation

    Estimate = a guess of what the size, value, amount, cost, etc. of something might be

    Foresee = to know about something before it happens
