sure - each number will be drawn 11-12 times ON AVERAGE, but here's the problem:
1) That's on average - some are drawn twice that, some 2.5 times that, and some 1/4th of that. I know, I tracked them.
2) 11-12 times what, a year? a calendar year? Since the number was drawn last? starting LAST May? I have seen numbers hit 3 of the last 4 games, and then not again for 71 games.
3) Adding to 2), you don't know when to start the 'timer'.
4) A handful of numbers hit A LOT (8-10 of them), a handful hit RARELY (6-8 of them), and the rest hit anywhere in between so is it any number regardless of what that number is hits on an average of 11-12 times? That's not a good enough answer for me.
Numbers 43 and 46 - neither has hit in precisely 31 games. In my own little system, that is almost a record - where TWO numbers have not hit in that long. I would be playing 43 OR 46 in every game from here on out. It's COMMON to see a single number not hit in 40-50-60-70 games, but very rare for TWO numbers to drop that far, I think my record is 38 games, and almost all 'twosies' hit by game 28. We are at 31 now.
