I know numbers repeat, but we're mostly talking of box (when it comes to p/3).  Sometimes straights repeat, but seldom over a period of 6 month.  When you go back a year, you'll see them pop-up fairly often.  So what would happen if you were to play str. only, but eliminate all the numbers over the last six months that have been played?

Then when picking numbers you look at your high and low, as well as the even and odd.  For instance, looking at Mo. your'll see that over the last 6 mos. that 39% of the picks were HHL, and 37%  EOO.

Now if your playing q/p's, you could do away with any number picked within that 6 mo. span, and only  play the HHL and EOO.  Wouldn't this cut your odds and increase your winnings.  What do you think?

Pick-3 probability is usually right on the mark, not wandering off so far as to suggest an advantage playing the other way.  Usually that opportunity is the next draw with a glance back in time to make sure things are as they should be.  I suggest you google the "Birthday Paradox".
