Predictions are a weird thing. No one knows what’s actually going to happen (or they wouldn’t have to even play the games), and predictions don’t affect the outcome or even add value to the viewing experience. Yet everyone does them, because fans can’t get enough of them, and they’re harmless fun. But the real danger in making predictions is that someone will remember them.
