I want to say this about someone:

"I know he is one of the winners." I'm not 100% sure , but some 80-90%".

If I say just "I know he is one of the winners", that means "I am sure that he is one of the winners". Right?

What verb should I use instead of 'know'?

"I guess he is...",
"I think he is ..."

You can say that you are "fairly sure", "fairly certain", or "nearly certain" that he is one of the winners, or if you want a verb, you can use "I think" or "I believe", which both express some uncertainty.
