Even knowing the complete pointlessness of this, we just can't pass on the chance to make this wild guess, right? I'll start:
4. Denis Ten
5. Van Der Perren
1. Pang & Tong
2. Bazarova & Larionov
3. Denney & Barrett
4. Hausch & Wende
5. Zhang & Wang
1. Davis & White
2. Cappellini & Lanotte
3. Shibutani & Shibutani
4. Reed & Reed
5. Ilinykh & Kastapalov (low prediction due to some ot TT's criticism of their training)
6. Weaver & Poje
They are having a prediction contest over at FSUniverse. Here are my entries.
( Cut-and-paste is our friend. )
1. Qing PANG / Jian TONG (CHN)
2. Caydee DENNEY / Jeremy BARRETT (USA)
3. Vera BAZAROVA / Yuri LARIONOV (RUS)
4. Narumi TAKAHASHI / Mervin TRAN (JPN)
5. Maylin HAUSCH / Daniel WENDE (GER)
6. Stefania BERTON / Ondrej HOTAREK (ITA)
I'm not sure who other than Meryl and Charlie can win.
1. Meryl DAVIS / Charlie WHITE (USA)
2. Maia SHIBUTANI / Alex SHIBUTANI (USA)
3. Elena ILINYKH / Nikita KATSALAPOV (RUS)
4. Kaitlyn WEAVER / Andrew POJE (CAN)
5. Cathy REED / Chris REED (JPN)
6. Anna CAPPELLINI / Luca LANOTTE (ITA)
Jeremy Abbott and Daisuke have both won the Final before.
1. Jeremy ABBOTT (USA)
2. Daisuke TAKAHASHI (JPN)
3. Kevin VAN DER PERREN (BEL)
4. Jeremy TEN (CAN)
5. Florent AMODIO (FRA)
6. Ross MINER (USA)
Mao is fairly certain to win. Caroline is usually top U.S. lady in ISU competition, the question is where to put her. I think the U.S. girls will finish above the Europeans, who have been struggling the past few years.
1. Mao ASADA (JPN)
2. Caroline ZHANG (USA)
3. Ashley WAGNER (USA)
4. Rachael FLATT (USA)
5. Carolina KOSTNER (ITA)
6. Kanako MURAKAMI (JPN)
Denis Ten 195
Pang Qing / Tong Jian
Vera Bazarova / Yuri Larionov
Caydee Denney / Jeremy Barrett
Narumi Takahashi / Mervin Tran
Caitlin Yankowskas / John Coughlin
Meryl Davis / Charlie White
Anna Cappellini / Luca Lanotte
Elena Ilinykh / Nikita Katsalapov
Maia Shibutani / Alex Shibutani
Kaitlyn Weaver / Andrew Poje
Addicted to handsome, artistic male skaters ;-)
This is my guess for the men's podium:
I have a soft spot for Sawyer, so all I ask is that he finishes in the Top 5.
In Ice Dance, I expect Davis & White will win gold, and Weaver & Poje will be on the podium.
ETA: Lol, I ended up being totally wrong about Schultheiss!

The only sure prediction I can make is for Gold: Dance-D/W and Pairs-P/T.
Dai and Mao IMO are front-runners for Gold but Silver or Bronze is a possibility.
Just a few more days to go. Can't wait!
Yeah! Lets get this party started.
1.) Mao Asada 176.56
2.) Kanako Murakami 163.22
3.) Carolina Kostner 160.00
4.) Rachael Flatt 158.00
5.) Kiira Korpi 157.65
6.) Ashley Wagner 154.33
7.) Caroline Zhang 152.89
8.)Jenna McCorkell 145.88
9.) Elene Gedevanishvilli 142.45
10.) Viktoria Helgesson 140.63
11.) Lena Marrocco 135.00
12.) Diane Szmiett 133.67
1.) Daisuke Takahashi 231.05
2.) Jeremy Abbott 226.34
3.) Takahiko Mura 212.34
4.) Yuzuru Hanyu 210.76
5.) Florent Amodio 208.36
6.) Ross Miner 200.06
7.) Denis Ten 198.34
8.) Adrian Schultheiss 195.44
9.) Kevin Van Der Perren 192.37
10.) Shawn Sawyer 189.43
11.) Jeremy Ten 187.66
12.) Jialiang Wu 185.00
If Yuzuru land all his jump I think he will likely at least get bronze , but his jump is not really stable now. And I'm sure he will include quad in his routine even he hasn't master it.
There's no "stable" jumper in men's. If Hanyu lands all jumps he can possibly win this competition. As long as he doesn't fall behind in the SP, he will be given a medal anyway. It's quite apparent the JSF has aranged this field for Hanyu to win a medal.

For pairs & ice dance, I can guess only the winners (Pang/Tong and Davis/White)
As far as girls go-prediction is this, flatt only way will win is if 1) mao blows program, 2)they cheat for her by overlooking her ur’s and edge calls , her lack of speed and her mule kick. I have yet to see her skate fast.-slow, deliberate—not even medium.
Ashley and Zhang can medal but has to skate clean and no falls. Stiff competition from Mao, Caroline Kostner, Kiira Korpi, Kanako Murakami, Victoria Helgesson .
U.S. girls has to fight for it instead of walzing through and no fight because of competition.
I am wondering if they won’t cheat because the U.sf.sa. tells them to just because they want Rachel up there , just because they can, won’t tell them to overlook Rachel, Ashley mistakes and Nail Zhang’s just because they can and have been doing it for years and just because that is the way it has been done since skating began.
I also can tell you don’t like zhang of how you don’t want her up there and by how you state “her bad season”because of being told ahead of time to watch out her mistakes and not Ashley and rachels. How they told them to do it as 14 year old and didn’t mention her injury at all last year.
Figure skating is if nothing else repetitive or doing them the same why just because we always did.
Prediction only favor the skaters you want up there not necessarily who skates better –cause they all can skate well. And you keep the skaters you don’t want up there low and crucify them—like zhang.
