    a hunch vs. a feeling

    A. I had a hunch that the masked bank robber would be thrown into prison soon.
    B. I had a feeling that the masked bank robber would be thrown into prison soon.

    My dictionary says that a feeling about something means an opinion, thought, or idea about it that is based on your intuition, rather than on things you know.

    I need to know whether A is synonymous with B in meaning. Thank you.
