Not that I'm aware of. But who knows there may be some kind of third party software out there. There isn't much you can't find these days. But that's not something apple itself has for computers.

Not quite predictive - but an expander
Typinator - the fastest text expander in town
Typinator can do something similar once you get it set up.

Hey there,
actually there is a predictive function in Macs... see: Predictive Text in OS X - YouTube... pressing the key ESC and the arrow down shows you the list of the words to choose from...

I hope that is what you need...
