I'm just stepping outside of the norm this week. What I mean is, we all seem to be coming up with simular numbers and they aren't the numbers that are being pulled by Powerball. I'm just covering the outside line I guess.

Litebets27,

Your prediction of a number lower than the 12 could very well be correct. I saw many odds-on favorites beaten when I used to play horses. The interpretation of odds can be a tricky thing. Even though the odds against a lower number than 12 hitting are roughly 3 to 1, that simply means that on average a lower number than 12 will be drawn one out of four times. Since hypersoniq has pointed out that the higher numbers have  followed the 12 in the three instances in the history of the current matrix, this next draw could very well be the one in four where a number lower than 12 shows.

Truthfully, I don't know what kind of number will come up. I think the draw dynamic of the 1/42 matrix is very different from that of the 5/53 for some reason. Most predictors pick a disproportionately greater amount of numbers to try to predict the red Powerball than they pick to predict the white balls from the 5/53 matrix. In spite of being only a 1 in 42 shot, the red Powerball seems to defy any attempts to accurately predict it with reasonable consistency. I generally go with only one number selection for the red Powerball (usually a straight-up guess), and I'm usually wrong. I'd like to find some rational, mathematical method of selecting just one number for play. I think that's basically what hypersoniq is shooting for with this thread.

The most popular repeat rates for the PB are 3,12,15,8 and 36 drawings, so I pick 38,18,23,37 or 17 as Wednesday's PB.

Powerball number was 2 which was far below what I expected.   It will probably be in the upper 20's or low 30's on Saturday.  Good luck everyone.

Sounds like it, doesn't it?

My thoughts maybe affected by the temps here in Maryland.
