i like your answer to guesser. I personally choose not to think so much of how the odds are against me, I like to feel that I'm beating the lottery at its own game no matter how random the #'s are....dunno, I have more confidence and I win more money when I look at things that way...heck, life in general that way

    I look at it kinda like a stock car race:

     

    Educate yourself a teeny bit, and you won't bet on certain individuals winning from the last 5 rows - depending on who they are of course.

     

    I don't think I'm betting the farm on Kyle Petty to win anything anytime soon, even though he IS a great guy.

     

    Educate yourself, and you can rule out X amount of numbers hitting, and that X may be 5, or 25, or anything in-between, I think the BEST we can do is narrow our selection down to about 25 numbers (on a regular basis), and then, we GUESS, based on our criteria.

      I like that answer, Pretty much says everything i had in mind. Definitly don't come into the game blindfolded, if you can narrow the odds down then go for it....be creative. I've managed to narrow it down to 22 numbers i had to play in the past to just 11 and I'm still figuring out ways to lower those odds to which time of the day one of those 11 are going to come out.

        What I do is pick three of my numbers that are a 'for sure' - those are a given - those are in play for every game on draw night.

        That leaves two other numbers to choose, so I wheel a predetermined set of numbers for one, and a predetermined set of numbers for the last number, and those are my games.

         

        My 10 games will look like this

        1-2-3-4-5

        1-2-3-4-8

        1-2-3-4-9

        1-2-3-4-10

        1-2-3-4-11

        1-2-3-20-5

        1-2-3-20-8

        1-2-3-20-9

        1-2-3-20-10

        1-2-3-20-11

         

        1-2-3 are obviously my 'for sure' picks, and I wheel the other numbers.

        I do have variations of the above.

          guesser

          What I do is pick three of my numbers that are a 'for sure' 

           

          A man woke up at midnight doubled over in pain. He goes to the emergency room, a doctor examines him and tells him he was born woith three testicles, and the third one just descended, no big deal, simple operation. 

          The guy is a player and tells the doctor, "No way", he says, "I've been looking for something like this all my life Doc."

          He heads to the nearest bar - this is Vegas, no closing times - and sees one other guy sitting in the bar. He knows he has a sure thing, so he bets that guy $500 that between him and the bartender they've got 5 testicles. The bartedner tries getting the guy's attention but they guy is all hyped yp because he has a "lock".

          The other guy in the bar says this is so stupid, he'll take the bet, and outs his money on the bar.  

          The bartender looks at the guy just out of the hospital and says, "I hope you were born with four of them....I tried to get your attention." 

          Moral of the story:  There is no such thing as a lock - or "sure thing"

           (This is an old Henny Youngman routine, but it fit here...)

            NO KIDDING !

             

            But I'd venture to say that 'most' people on here feel very strongly towards a couple of numbers every draw - THAT is what I mean by a 'sure thing'.

            I do NOT mean 'sure thing' as in 'guaranteed to win', I mean 'sure thing' as in 'I am playing these X numbers NO MATTER WHAT'. 

             

            Fair enough ?

                    024 50 cents Straight

                    024 $1.00 Straight Box

                     I should venture into the prediction page and say "Go with two of these three........"
