and why....?

Filter would be L/H balanced, 2/3 (e/o) and 3/2 (e/o) only and sum like 78..88 - 112...122  for 5/39 matrixes.

ps. I know that filtering will ruin guarantee, but still...

    I would pick a 4 if 5 wheel in nine tickets. I do not filter because I do not exactly understand it and I just prefer to use insight.

      I chose 4if5 out of 15 filtered.

      First off, you would be lucky to get 5 number hits out of 15 number choices. The filters that you chose to work with are good 5/39 common occurrences, I use o/e 1/4 - 4/1, L/H 2/3 - 3/2, sum range 74 to 128.

      A 3if5, if you had all 5 numbers that were drawn you wouldn't lose all of your $15 but, most likely you wouldn't win any more than you played.

      A 4if5, if you had all 5 numbers that were drawn, you would have a better chance at making a profit from your winning tickets even filtered from 115 tickets to 15 tickets. In Ohio a 4 number win is worth $300 and a 3 number win is worth $10. Where a 3if5 most likely would only produce 1 3 number and maybe a few 2 number wins, the 4if5 even filtered could give you a 4 number win with multiple 3's and 2's or just multiple 3's and 2's. Even if your 4if5in15 filtered didn't catch a 4 number win most likely you would have multiple 3 number wins and giving you more than just break even results if, you have all 5 numbers drawn within your 15 chosen for play.

        Here's how I would play it.  I'd pick my pool of 15 numbers and randomly pick my 13 lines using only those 15 numbers.  The only filtering I would apply is ALL high/low, odd/even.  I think it works as good, or better than a wheel.

        Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

          I like your idea but I would play 15 lines so I could use each of the 15 numbers 5 times and make sure that each number was paired with the other 14 numbers at least one time.

          It's not a 4if5 wheel but neither is a 115 line wheel that is filtered down to 15 lines.
