Let's get the ball rollin' with a pick on the general direction of movement...

Please explain WHY you pick one of the above... (not looking for an exact number, just keep it basic for now)

Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

I will say "Higher than 12" using past history as a guideline...

in the current matrix, 12 has been drawn 4 times, the last 3 times were as follows

10/30/02 PB 12
11/02/02 PB 34

12/18/04 PB 12
12/22/04 PB 18

01/01/05 PB 12
01/05/05 PB 37

based on this, I would begin choosing a powerball by picking a Higher number than 12, knowing full well that ANY number from 1-42 could come up... it's at least a starting point...

I said above mainly because there are more numbers above 12 than below or equal to, so I think the odds are better it will be higher.

hypersoniq,

I have to agree with plnwebguy. I'd say that the next red Powerball number will be higher than twelve simply because it's odds-on (2 to 5) in favor of it. You're entirely right that any number can come up, but the mathematical odds are the only realistic insight for me. I can't see any real law or logic in simply relying on what has happened in the past. It would seem that the only explanation for those higher numbers following the 12 is the fact that there are simply more numbers which are higher. As I said, it's an odds-on bet. There are only twelve numbers equal or lower (against), but there are thirty numbers higher (for). An immediate repeat of the 12 would be a 41 to 1 longshot. The odds of a lower number showing would be a little less than a modest 3 to 1.

I didn't vote because I didn't want my vote to be misunderstood...

In the future when I say I think the PB Number will be "higher" I am saying that the next PB will a (larger) number. Like the #12 "hit" last game. I'm saying it will be a (larger) number than #12 this next drawing. ie: EXAMPLE = #18

-Here's my predictions for Wednesday 02-02-05-

I see (3) things that could happen next Wednesday.

1.) There is (two) possibilities in the upper range. #11 has a chance, and, #20 has a chance of "hitting."

2.) This area is where I have the most confidence of the PB Number "hitting" the next draw. That is between #28 and #34.

3.) The last area of consideration is #41.

i too think the pb will be higher , not only for the mathmatical odds that do favor this but also for the trend that follows. i'm thinking the range will be somewhere in the 20's

Hi all,

I can respect the odds that the next number will be higher than 12. But, I'm going to go against the odds, (mainly because I can, Although I maybe wrong). I see that the powerball has been running in the double digits since 1/12/05. I just think it may dip down under 12 for at least one game then go back up even higher. But as I said, I have been know to be wrong.

Litebets27:

What "range" do you think it will be in? #1 to #12? or can you narrow it down any? #6 to #12? Or do you have a "specific" one or two numbers in mind?

I too have (2) probablities in the 20's. That's #20 and #28. Do you have other's in mind?

Kbcherokee,

I am looking at the 6-12 range. Specifically the 6, 9 and maybe 10 or 11. I'm also coming up with some higher numbers, two to be exact, but i'm still working on it.

Litebets27:

I just finished looking at my Spreadsheet that I track the numbers on including the Powerball Number and I just don't see the PB Number "hitting" above #11 this coming game. #11 has a chance of "hitting" though.

You could be right on the #06, to me, that would be a long shot.

All things are possible as well know...

I have to "stick" with the #28, 30, 31, 32 or 34 as my best choices...

*** Watch #41 "hit"

"Good luck"

100% Guaranteed to possibly hit:

I'm going to play 29 and 30 as my PBs.

32, 34, 36 also looking good.

Chief, looks like we're on the same wavelength this time around.

JAG331:

I hope I'm on the right track... I would like to out-guess this "pesky" little PB Number a few times in a row instead of being one or two off all the time...

I played on each side of #29, so that's probably where it will "hit." (wink)

-Good luck-
