I make sure to vary how quickly I ask the dog to finish after a front. Sometimes I'll give the finish command immediatey, and other times I'll wait several seconds. My dog knows it's probably coming, but has learned he has to wait for the command.
If I had a dog anticipating finishes, I would also get him to make the mistake so I could tell him he's wrong. Do several rapid fire front-finish, front-finish, front-finish, and then do a front and wait several seconds to see if he'll finish on his own. If so, say nope, side step to block him, and reset at front.
