Look for pomegranates that feel heavy for their size. The heavier they feel, the more juice they will contain, so take a moment to choose good specimens. Don't worry about split or cracked fruit, splits and cracks can, in fact, be a sign of supremely ripe and juicy pomegranates! Avoid pomegranates with soft spots or any oozing (that really should go without saying, shouldn't it?).

I find that a medium-sized pomegranate results in about 1/2 to 3/4 cup of fresh pomegranate juice. Larger fruits can yield a cup or more.
