How do you decide what order to play a straight number? Do you use the history of that number(how far back would you go), weak or strong digits, etc???? Thanks and have a good weekend.

Most of the time straight hits come in ascending and descending order. Also when I play I research the number and see which one is out longest. Good luck!

When I was warming my car up on Friday night I noticed the trip odometer was exactly 300 miles so I played 300 for a \$1.50 straight and a \$1.50 super straight.

Lucky me, 303 was drawn and I've been kicking myself all day.

Good question. You should get a lot of responses to this since everyone deals with it.  I noticed you are in GA so I pulled out a Georgia database going back to August, 1993.

10546 draws should give us good numbers to work with. The database shows 120 triples (1.1%), 2823 doubles (26.7%), and 7603 unmatched/singles (72%).  Good splits.

I'm going to use just the unmatched/singles, that is, those draws that contain 3 unique digits like 1, 0, 3 and 4, 9, 6, or  8, 7, 4, to give you some idea of the ascending and descending combinations.

In Georgia, ASCENDING STRAIGHTS, combinations like 1, 2, 3 or  4, 7, 9, or 3, 5, 6  (lowest number first position/highest number third position) have occurred 1268 times. That is 16.69% of the 7603 combinations.

The DESCENDING STRAIGHTS, combinations like 9, 7, 4 or 6, 5, 1, or 8, 3, 2 (highest number in first position/lowest number in third position) have occurred 1287 times. That is 16.9% of the 7603 combinations.

The LOW MIDDLE, combinations like 9, 4, 7 or 3, 2, 5 (combinations with a LOW MIDDLE number (second position number)) have occurred 2547 times. That is 33.49% of the 7603 combinations.

The HIGH MIDDLE, combinations like 3, 5, 2 or 5, 6, 1 or 7, 9, 4 (combinations with a HIGH MIDDLE number (second position number)) have occurred 2501 times. That is 32.89% of the 7603 combinations.

What that tells us:

In Georgia the unmatched/singles, combinations with 3 unique digits, will hit 66% of the time with the HIGHEST or LOWEST digit in the SECOND POSITION.

Although there is no hard and fast rules, 2 out of 3 is pretty good odds in this case. Take 3 digits...... 9, 6, 3 (since those are the ones I'm looking at in Excel).***

The last time 9, 3, 6 hit, draw 10537, the LOW NUMBER was in the second position.  The time before that, draw 10436, it was an ASCENDING STRAIGHT 3, 6, 9.

Now might be a good time to play 9 in the second position (the HIGH MIDDLE) as 6, 9, 3, and 3, 9, 6.  You might even want to play your DESCENDING STRAIGHT 9, 6, 3.

Just some thoughts to get your started.

***(This is an example. Since I haven't followed GA CASH 3, I'm not suggesting anyone should play the digits 3, 6, 9 unless, of course, your workout points them out.)

I track the positions of the first, second and third digits as separate numbers, I usually pick the 5 hottest numbers from each position and make a list, the number that appears the most will be my wheeled pick or I play it str8 and boxed most others are just boxed, I am on a budget and unless I win I only play 10 numbers.

good luck to you.

I missed this post, but there is no argument. What danyo says may be true over the short term in Ohio but here are the 18 recent draws for Georgia. Check those:

1,14,2011,Midday,2,7,0 High Middle
1,14,2011,Evening,7,8,2 High Middle
1,15,2011,Midday,0,3,4 Ascending
1,15,2011,Evening,4,2,0 Descending
1,16,2011,Midday,9,4,1 Descending
1,16,2011,Evening,5,6,3 High Middle
1,17,2011,Midday,9,4,5 Low Middle
1,17,2011,Evening,7,7,3
1,18,2011,Midday,9,3,6 Low Middle
1,18,2011,Evening,3,3,5
1,19,2011,Midday,1,7,5 High Middle
1,19,2011,Evening,1,6,8 Ascending
1,20,2011,Midday,4,4,6
1,20,2011,Evening,8,1,9 Low Middle
1,21,2011,Midday,4,6,4
1,21,2011,Evening,9,3,4 Low Middle
1,22,2011,Midday,6,6,7
1,22,2011,Evening,1,5,0 High Middle

In 18 draws we see 2 ascending, 2 descending, 4 high middle, 4 low middle.

2 of 12 is 16%. 4 of 12 is 33%

About consecutive numbers (1,2,3 or 6,5,4  or 7,9,8). Those are all included in the tabulations above but we can break those into a subset.

Ascending consecutive numbers (1,2,3 or 2,3,4, etc) occur 93 times in 10546 draws, roughly 1 per 1000.

Descending consecutive numbers (9,8,7 or 7,6,5, or 3,2,1, etc) occur 92 times in 10546 draws.

Random consecutive numbers (1,3,2 or 6,5,7 or 8,7,9, etc) occur 367 times in 10546 draws, about 4% of the time.

If you have a number that you feel strongly about

Simply arrange it 6 different ways

123 <--(# expected)

132

213

231

312

321

If you're sure a certain single digit will return from the previous hit,

then take that digit and move it once to the left or right!

Hope that is what you meant....

Thanks

Went back and checked data from four states on playing ascending and descending straights.

Looking at the data below, it appears better to play the highest or lowest digit in the second position.

Ascending singles, such as 2,7,8 or 0,4,9 etc., occur 16% to 17% of the time.

Descending singles, such as 8,7,2 or 7,5,0, etc., occur about 16% to 17% of the time.

High Middles, highest number in the second position, occurs about 33% of the time.

Low Middles, lowest number in the second position, occurs about 33% of the time.

Texas          Georgia           PICK 3 Games         Pennsylvania        Ohio
5399            10546              Drawings                   11735          2929
55               120               Triples                        137              25
1447             2823               Doubles                     2823            779
3897             7603               Singles                      8433           2125
667              1268             Ascending                   1440             364
647              1287             Descending                 1338             332
1266              2501             High Middle                  2833             714
1317              2547             Low Middle                  2822             715

Under certain conditions, it might be favorable to play straights in an ascending or descending or, but the numbers say 66% of the time, the SECOND DIGIT WILL BE THE HIGHEST OR THE LOWEST OF THE THREE.

I think it should be noted that "low middle" and "high Middle" consists of 4 unique numbers which is why the percentage is higher. I have this up loaded in my spreadsheet. Each number (single) would have %16.4 chance of falling.
