El Condicional Simple vs. El Futuro for uncertain events

Hi - In your topic on El Condicional Simple, the description reads as follows : "El Condicional Simple expresses hypothetical actions that would or might happen in the past and in the future. It is also used to express wishes, to give advice and suggestions or to invite and ask in a polite way."

How does one differentiate between this description and the use of El Futuro Simple for the use in prediction, probability and speculation? Seems quite confusing and overlapping.

Hola Dhruv

can you be a bit more precise on where you see the overlapping? We have different lessons on uses of the conditional and the future.

I have the same question. For speculation or future probability, how does one decide when to use condicional simple or futuro simple?
