This is in another thread, but I just noticed that thread is already 7 pages long, so I will copy it here.
I have just started a new way of picking the Pick 4, so it isn't proven yet, but I will share some of it for you to consider.
I looked at the last 10 draws for Midday and Evening for all states and looked for something common. What I found that amazed me was that the fourth digit in the previous draw was very often the digit that repeated. So, right now I'm trying an 8-digit wheel with a Key #. That Key # is, of course, the last digit of the previous draw. So, you will notice my Pick 4 predictions on the Predictions Page have the same first digit in all the picks for that particular draw.
What I am trying is keeping the same last digit (as my first digit in the wheel), and adding one to the other digits. I stay away from doubles because it requires me to go through after the wheel has done its job and delete duplicates. Way too much work!!
So, an example or two. GA Midday on Saturday was 8147. I move right to left keeping the first digit and adding one to the rest: 7529. That's only 4 digits! The other four, I do like this:
I have the 7529 and I pick the corresponding digit for each one to get the 8 digits.
I still don't want doubles, so I can't have the 2 in the bottom row. I look at all the numbers to see which ones are missing. Starting from 0 and working up. Well, 1 is missing so I will change the 2 in the bottom row to 1:
Now the only problem is the 7. The number 3 is not used, so I change the 7 in the bottom row to 3:
Now I have 8 digits with no doubles to put into my wheel.
I will post the wheel in the next post...
