A future is a derivative on an underlying, if the underlying is doing what you claim it does then the future will follow that underlying.

But futures also have a term structure. So you can't say Natural Gas prices are higher in the winter than summer, so I'm going buy at the end of the summer and make money, because the term structure already reflects that, and the rolls will eat all your expected profit.
