I have a very specific question about the standards, and I really hope someone can help me!

7.SP.5, to the best of my understanding, is about the concept of probability but not actually calculating anything. 7.SP.7a is about theoretical probability (P=desired outcomes/ total outcomes). But I'm confused about 7.SP.6: How can students make predictions before learning how to calculate probability? Or am I wrong about standard 5? And is standard 6 supposed to be about theoretical or experimental probability- or both? I haven't found answers on any online resources, so I'm hoping to find a math teacher who can clear this up for me.
