We all know that LP has its share of good predictors, wanted to get some opinions on

the thread predictors vs the prediction board predictors. On one end we have BA who

will talk you thru his methods as he posts winners daily and the other end someone

like geos hardly says a word but has won a couple 5/39 games. I used those two just

as examples because they are total opposites but both respected among our community

What do you all think...

      Each place has its fine points there are some who post on the prediction boards for individual states. These posters are dedicated to their work, as i have tried it and it takes some doing to get predictions together for all states individually. And those posters should be commended as i know they sacrifice a lot of time and effort.

      People who post on the forums boards might find it easier and more rewarding as they have gathered followers. Many of them do a great job.  

      In by gone days we have had contest to see who could come up with winning predictions for individual states pick 3 mostly using the forums. Bragring rights all around for the winners.

      And we still do with mega and powerball as Maddog's challenge is an ongoing work.

        I appreciate the comments emilyg and four4me and anyone who voted

        I see pros and cons for both sides and I know myself I have tried to do both

        and I also notice that some never post a prediction on the board and some

        that do, the predictions in the threads differ from what is on the board.

        I am a bottom line type of person so the board allows me to see just how much

        I am winning or in most cases loosing in terms of dollars

          Prediction board because it's easier to follow and compare predictions and results are tabulated.

              I don't think there's any comparison -- the boards are a much better place to post predictions.  But that doesn't mean the forums are something separate and detached.  The ultimate way is to post the predictions on the board and discuss them in the forums.

                I understand  what you are saying Todd but alot of people post different numbers in the threads than

                they do on the prediction board. I remember when I use to check the threads a while ago before I did

                things myself and I would put money on some picks and not win but I would see that same predictor

                with a win for that draw on the board. The stats shows dollars and cents which I like but if you dont

                post in the threads then your rank will never increase. geos has a lower rank than his ability to pick

                numbers

                  Hopefully people are not posting their numbers in the forums in order to increase their rank -- BECAUSE IT DOESN'T WORK THAT WAY.

                  It is a completely automated forumula -- and a fairly complex on at that -- the details of which I keep secret so that people cannot artifically increase their rank.  Posting your predictions in the forums will NOT increase your rank.

                      I voted Thread predictor but I really like the board. I just wish there was a way to view those who only post for individual states. I voted Thread because they are usually for the individual states. I myself, will post on both if I have time.

                        Since I use no software or program

                        other than Todd's and Paurth's free

                        tool my paper workouts have a reference

                        on the Pick3 forum side.

                        Pinpointing patterns or misfires

                        are constant...so my energies

                        will be at the forum readily allowing thus.

                             For me it's the threads and for the same reason Black Apple stated, at least until I can get it more automated. There is a lot of paper shuffling, pinpointing pattern movements and "misfires"... I like that term. No matter how automated I get this system it will always be about looking back at the patterns, that's a lot of work for multiple states. I just don't think I'm fast enough or good enough yet.
