There is math, and then there is gambling.  Math doesn't gamble, math quantifies.  Math gives us interest rates, decay rates, probability, the area of a circle, the speed of a train, the length of a footbal field. It can't predict the future, it may get us close, but it is not absolute, if it was, there would be no lottery. No matter what, every time you make a bet, it is a gamble.

gamble:1 a : to play a game for money or property b : to bet on an uncertain outcome
2 : to stake something on a contingency : take a chance
transitive verb
1 : to risk by gambling : WAGER

You got math and then you got quick picks, oh yeah, they win most of time.

My 2 cents. LOL jarasan US Flag

We have mathamatical equations listed here under many different threads, on basically a gambling website.  No, it's not absolute - mathamatical results are, but picking winning numbers is not, but as you said - and as I have said in the past - it points us in a direction.  But lots of things point us in a direction, ya picks yer poisons.


Math is what it is, it can help you, it can clarify things for you, it can point you in a direction, but it cannot, however, pick numbers for you.

Well, it CAN pick numbers for you, but the results of those numbers remains to be seen.


We can all look at something and say 'do the math', and if we did, none of us in our right minds would waste a penny on the lottery, but we do, we play our games of chance, just the same as a football team calling a play to get them X yards, we take a chance.  


I prefer to think of this as a sport, because I'm trying to make educated guesses, and maybe I will win the Super Bowl one of these days, playing the lottery or buying football tickets: the cost of admission is the same.

      I'd say....Don't worry about all the math being thrown at you until it proves something. Ever run across someone who tries to use alot of big words but doesn't really know what they mean?  Go and grow with your own system, bet reasonably, and improve your system by using elements your comfortable with and that pan out against historical facts. I'm not going to say that I'm absolutely right and that everyone else is wrong......It's just one opinion.....take it or leave it....your choice.

      I play the devil's advocate only because I hate seeing people blow alot of hard earned cash on hyped up systems that don't measure up.

    Best of luck.

    You are a slave to the choices you have made.  jk
