Powerball has only had 4 draws below 5 as well (since the beginning of the year) out of 49 draws, or 8.2% of the time. However 1-4 is only 4 balls out of 42, which is 9.5% of the balls. You could say that on average 9.5% of the draws will be 1-4, which is close to what the actual is. I don't think that will really help us much.
The same will show true for any selections within the same size range. If you look at PB's 31-34, there have only been 5 drawn in the 49 drawings this year. That's 10.2%, which is right around the 'expected' 9.5%.
