To do that, you have to write in the empty Cells the number of Sets each team will win in that particular match. Possible outcomes are 3-0, 3-1 or 3-2.

If your prediction is that Team 1 is going to win, you should type number "3" in appropriate Cell of T1 Column. If your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win a set or two or will end the match without winning a set, then type the number "1" or "2" or "0" in appropriate Cell of T2 Column. Do the opposite if your prediction is that Team 2 is going to win.
