I seem to be suffering from that dreaded illness, "one-off-itis". Last 5 days, I have been picking 10 numbers for Cash 3 and Cash 4 in Georgia. Each time, one of my picks will be one digit off. The last two days, I said to myself, " Self, let's go ahead and go up or down one digit from each pick and see if we can stop this "one-off" syndrome". So what happens? Those picks are one off. I just want to say "ERRRRRRRRGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!!". Thank you, I feel better.
Any cure for "oneoffitis"?

Example, I had started playing "441" as a combo in the Cash 3. $3 for each pick since Friday noon. Guess what fell in the last few days, 551 and 331. I had tried my cure, but went for 412, 431, 541, etc.
Should we start a "oneoffitis" foundation or just be glad its not "two-off-itis"?

                I see stavros has checked in, was waiting on him over here,haha! Yes, I have case of it too. The only way to remedy it is to play more numbers to cover all your bases but I'm too cheap most of the time! There's really no reason to be off a digit if you do that. Maybe we suffer from "cheap-itis" too. LOL

                  I' m sure that 441 will be coming down pretty soon. No longer than a week. Plus if you use todd's deflate system you can check to see if that number is even present at all for the next coming 7 days. If it is listed, I would keep playing it.

                  Good Luck!

                    I think anyone who has been playing lottery games for awhile feel your pain (note:  congrats to those who win the jackpot the very first time you play...but it sux 4 us who have been playing a long time and only winning the bottom two or three tier prizes like $1 - $7...having the winning combo and not playing it for that draw doesn't count...really sux!).  But don't feel so hurt...sure winning a pick 3 or pick 4 top prize is still cool but there is a lottery group (I for one don't really understand the concept of forming a lottery pool...yeah, when I win, I want the WHOLE jackpot...cash value that is...all to myself and of course Uncle Sam and charities will get their share) in Minnesota that billed themselves as "1 Away From Retirement" in which their Powerball number was exactly one digit away from the winning powerball number...oh well, $200,000 divided among 21 people...sux (that's why I don't understand lottery pools)...but it could have been $120M (annuity) divided among 21 people...I guess the number 21 is the aim in a particular card game, but it apparently didn't bring them any luck!  Keep hope alive though...that couple in Nevada who won a recent $15M Powerball prize had the week prior just come in to claim a third tier $10K win...I wonder if that happened to them what would they change their lottery pool name to?  Anyway, lottery pools and verbal agreement pool sharing is just bad business sense in my opinion...just look at most of the lawsuits related to jackpot winnings...they usually involve people who participate in lottery pools.  Plus one should be suspect of such an arrangement if it is heavily pushed and marketed by the lottery commissions.  Combine extremely high odds with a suspect legal arrangement...not good.  I like to believe my chance of winning as well as my luck of winning is better playing all by myself.  Plus with a lottery pool, you really can't keep your winning a secret...by the very nature of most lottery pools, MANY people are going to KNOW you have come into some serious loot.  Anyway, let me get off my anti-lottery pool soap box.  As I say in signing off, don't overthink your playing strategy because...

                    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                      You could start a Foundation for One-Off-Itis:

                      However you started with a Combination that had Two-Off-Itis, and after applying your Cure:

                      Although the Cure didn't Cure the Two-Off-Itis, it did improve the condition to One-Off-Itis.

                      Each Combination (ABC) is made up of three Pairs AB AC BC:

                      Maybe you could apply the Cure to a Pair at a time instead of a Digit at a time.

                      The Cure:
                      1-Plus, Plus
                      2-Plus, Minus
                      3-Minus, Plus
                      4-Minus, Minus

                      A mind once stretched by a new idea never returns to its original dimensions!

                          THAT'S IT!! NO MORE. Georgia midday was Cash 3- 442, Cash 4- 1273. Well, I was playing 441 again (among other numbers) , and 1283, 1173, 1272. So I concede, I'm beat. Not worth the anger and frustration. And my Cash 4 numbers were one-ups and one-downs on my original picks which were 1293, 1293, 1073, and 1271. Too much aggravation and second guessing. Mad

                            I feel your pain demdude ... it will eat at you until you feel sick inside ..chasing it day after day, week after week ... siphoning hard earned cash out of your pockets. It's like someones signature reads " To win a small fortune, You need to start with a large one" ..so true.

                            Dont get upset, take a break from it for a week. Don't even look at the numbers at all... you will feel refreshed after a week when you can get back into it with a fresh start.

                              take it from the master of being one off.stick with your numbers and they will come.patience is the key.everyone has seen me get down and out with oneoffitis but then when i get that pick 4 hit for 2,500 dollars it clears up.
