Way to go and good results.  Did you have a strategy for picking your numbers?

I'm still working on it.  I tried to go down to 25 numbers and 25 MBs but to no avail.  If I were to wheel an play all 32 wb's and 22 mb's This is what I would have had (as far as best combination) in the last 35 draws.....still to many combos:

 5+1 4 5+0 0 4+1 2 4+0 4 3+1 5 3+0 4 2+1 7 2+0 6 1+1 0 1+0 3 0+0 0

I know that you mentioned that one of your filters is the sum, have you looked at a pattern in regards to the sum?  Such as if the last sum was 176 the next sum would be a plus or minus of 20 or 30....for instance if the sum is 176 the next sum might be a 196-206 or 156-146.

This looks quite promising until you see how many combos are at each sum. Ever getting the exact sum right, in most cases, won't guarantee a prize.
Having said that, if you were willing to only play a certain range (like the way some people stick with a certain set of numbers), it could make a fine filter ... for the patient.

Sums can be an important part of the filtering process but they have their limits.  MegaMillions sum of 142 is the most popular sum since the last matrix change 450 drawings ago but it has only happened 10 times.  MM sums range from 54 to 238 with 80% of them in the 95 to 190 range.  I also pay attention to the range of a combinations and count its number of matches with numbers in previous drawings.

Yes, they can be limiting, yet, you can also filter out the high sums if you can guess that the next sum will probably fall in a particular range.

I am going to guess that tonight's sum will fall within 135-160 range, yes, I know that it is low.

30% of the last 450 winning combinations had sums within 135-160 range.  I'm picking combinations with sums of 95-190 which cover 80% of past winning combinations.  I'm pretty much going with 80% with every parameter I set.  I use a lot of different parameters so sometime I end up accepting a few combinations outside of 1 or 2 of them.

Matched previous 450 combinations is also one of my parameters.
0 =  261-294
1 =  132-160
2 =  18-30
3 =  0-3
4 =  0
5 =  0

Good luck on your picks.

With the MM jackpot at \$200M, I had to play a few lines even if my system isn't picking winners but no QPs for me.  These are the combinations I picked for tonight's drawing.  I posted the first 10 on the prediction board earlier.

11 19 22 32 39 +05
08 09 26 41 42 +15

01 05 18 35 38 +01
02 12 25 29 30 +36
03 16 45 47 50 +41
19 29 48 49 54 +16
07 20 33 35 45 +12
15 21 22 46 55 +40
27 28 30 37 56 +35

Well, the sum was 125, it was even lower than I predicted it would be.
