    Can't help you with what's left after filtering.

    Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    Lep

    There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

        I guess we would need know what other kinds of sets you are trying to filter out? Or only numbers in a row like you showed above? There wouldn't be that many to eliminate just sticking to 

        5,6,7,8,9

        6,7,8,9,10  etc.

        so that leads me to believe you may have other kinds of sets you are trying to get rid of.
