First - I would like to point out - not everything on the bingo card are things I think will happen. Some actually conflict with others. However, these are the top rumors out there leading into the 9.9.2014 event.  And no there is no Apple TV listed - it actually just missed the cut.
 
For those items I think are most likely to happen they are:
 
- 4.7" iPhone 
- 5.5" iPhone
- A8 Processor with M8 Motion Processor
- Sapphire Glass - even if just for one or two specific options of the iPhone.
- 13 MP rear Camera
- iWatch - announced - and it being available in Dec 2014.
And
- 128 GB Version of the iPhone finally.
 
Those are the ones I think are the most likely to happen - and if they did - we get an X on the bingo card.
 
Others likely to happen.
 
- iPhone 4S killed off.  But I think the 5C and 5S remain active and for sale.
- iPhone Power button moves to the side of the iPhone from the top.
- 4.7" iPhone available on Sept 19th.
- 5.5" iPhone not available until the end of October.
- iPhone 6 and iPhone Air are the names for the 4.7" and 5.5" respectively.
- a Barometer is added to the sensors 
- Camera Sticks out of the iPhone and is not flush with the back.
- 2 GHz clock speed for the A8 - but not actually announced at the event.  
And
- Apple introduces a reversible USB cable.
 
 
Others that might happen listed are:
 
- Light up rear Apple logo
- Wifi 802.11.AC - hold over from last years bingo card.
- 4k Video recording and 4k video out - also hold overs from last year
- NFC - again a holdover from last year and the year before.
- 12 Hr 3G talk time - Yup Hold over from last year as well. 
- 2 GB Ram - You guessed it hold over from last year. 
And finally
- iPhone 6 and 6L are the names used (I don't think that will happen)
 
Again Definitely not all these rumor will come to pass and if history repeats itself most will not.  But some will. 

 
 
For those sight impared here is the actual layout of the bingo card going left to right.
 
Top Row:
4.7" iPhone
iPhone 4S killed off
iPhone Power Button moved to side
iPhone 4.7" available September 19th
128 GB Version
 
Second Row:
Camera sticks out - not flush with back of iPhone
A8 Processor with M8 Motion Processor
iPhone 5.5" Available End of October
iWatch Available December 2014
2 GHz Clock Speed for A8
 
Third Row:
Barometer
12 Hour 3G talk time
Free spot
2 GB RAM
Reversible USB Cable
 
Fourth Row:
Near Field Communication - NFC
13 MP Rear Camera
iPhone 6 and iPhone Air for names
Sapphire Glass
Wifi - 802.11.AC
 
Fifth Row:
iWatch
4k Video recording and 4K Video out
Light up Rear Apple Logo
iPhone 6 and iPhone 6L for names
5.5" iPhone
