A prediction or educated-guess based on current evidence that is yet to be tested.
I hypothesize that my pants will decend.

An educated guess. Yup, it's that simple. No need to spend hours trying to find someone who understands the Wikipedia shit! 😂
Girl #1: ugh! I have this stupid lab report due tomorrow and I don't know what a hypothesis is!! I'm gonna go search it on Wikipedia.
Girl #2: No, no! Don't, you'll waste your time. Just go on urban dictionary😜

A guess made by someone with a PhD.

In common usage, the words hypothesis, model, theory, and law have different interpretations and are at times used without precision, but in science they have very exact meanings. A hypothesis is a limited statement regarding the cause and effect in a specific situation, which can be tested by experimentation and observation or by statistical analysis of the probabilities from the data obtained.
It's not just a guess, it's a hypothesis.

According to Dictionary.com, an hypothesis is "a proposition, or set of propositions, set forth as an explanation for the occurrence of some specified group of phenomena, either asserted merely as a provisional conjecture to guide investigation (working hypothesis) or accepted as highly probable in the light of established facts." Which means that not all hypothesizes are the same. I can hypothesize that the wind might blow a kite I'm holding to the right if the wind starts blowing in that direction but that would be a guess. I can also hypothesize that life arose from nothing but that would be completely speculative and guess-work.
An hypothesis in science can sometimes have some established facts but can otherwise be entirely guess-work like the abiogenesis hypothesis which is fueled entirely by the blind faith of atheists.
