"I think it's 50/50 whether the Democrats filibuster," Cruz said on CBS's "Face The Nation," adding that a Democratic filibuster will not succeed.
"They don't have any good arguments against Gorsuch, but they're furious that we're going to have a conservative nominated and confirmed."
Cruz said, though, that one way or another, Gorsuch will be confirmed to the Supreme Court.
"I'll tell you this, Judge Gorsuch will be confirmed," he said.
"He will either get 60 votes and be confirmed or otherwise, whatever procedural steps are necessary."
Gorsuch's confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee has been scheduled to start on Monday.
