Position tracking ....6 ways
1. ABC 123 ascending 1
2. ACB 132 Mixed 2
3. BAC 213 Mixed 3
4. BCA 231 Mixed 4
5. CAB 312 Mixed 5
6. CBA 321 descending 6
There will be 6 columns and each column will have 120 regular 6 way numbers under each heading. Column 1,2,3,4,5,6, .... We will end up with 3 odd and 3 even columns...3 high and 3 low columns.
120 numbers each column is 120 x 6 columns = 720 total straights.
During the year or 365 draws there will average around 100 doubles. This will leave us about 265 days for Six way numbers to hit. That's it.
If there are only 120 box numbers available then:
265 days / divided by 120 is = 2.2 Hits per year on each of the 120 box numbers per year.
Some will hit more or less but most will average 2 hits per year.
Each one of the six positional columns listed above will average 44 hits each per year. Because.... 265 days /divided by 6 columns is = 44.16 each.
If you want to track the entire group of Positional Columns you can. Perhaps you can anticipate a straight this way. If you think its to much for you to do then try this. Follow just the Ascending and Descending columns.
Since each column averages 44 hits per year....... that means we can expect about 44 ascending hits and 44 descending hits per year. (6 way only)
Just tracking this kind of group alone might be worth while for a straight catcher.
We should expect that 44+44 = 88 ascending and decending 6 ways per year. This means that we can expect one of these two columns to hit around24% of the time. Almost like doubles( a little less).
Another way to look at it is ..... 12% of the time to look for an ASCENDING number or order. ......or every 8. 3 days.
Bottom line is .....each group or each of the 6 columns should average a hit every 8.3 days ! Yes sirree ....
