Ok. First, wheeling doesn't reduce your odds. There are 324,632 possible lines in a 5/35 game, and nothing can be done to change that. However, wheeling can be helpful if you have a favorite number, or a key number that you think is going to appear.
Regarding your question, I believe you want a 4/5 guarantee if 4 numbers show up in that set; to do so you would need to play 30 lines (Wheel used: Abbreviated 4 if 4 of 9) to cover all possible 4/5 matches.
30 lines for the first nine numbers....30 for the second nine (10-18)....30 for the third nine (19-27).
You would have to play 90 lines to guarantee hitting 4 numbers in one of your three wheels, provided that just one wheel contains all four numbers.
Grouping all 90 lines together, your odds of matching 4/5 on one of the lines are 1 in 3607. This is not an improvement in the odds of winning. On any given line, the odds will always be 1 in 324,632.
You will spend 90 times as much money, therefore your chances of winning as a whole get 90 times greater. I hope this helps! Main thing to remember....wheeling does not reduce the odds.
