I've never been a big doubles player because they only hit 27% of the time, plus I could never decide how to pick the numbers to double. I was looking at my skip and hit charts when I started to notice something. A lot of the doubles were a digit that hit the day before. So I broke out my old charts going back to February 2005 and started counting and here is what I found. What I did was, I looked at the winning doubles number and counted back the number of misses /days until the last time the doubled number hit as a single or double. This may apply to other states also.
This is based on Maryland for both the mid. and eve. drawings. This is the number of misses right before a double.
number of misses / times a double hit after / % number of misses / times a double hit after / %
0 - 179 28% 0 - 186 28.6%
1 122 19% 1 -139 21.4%
2 - 96 15% 2 - 90 13.8%
3 - 67 3 - 51
4 - 42 4 - 58
5 - 35 5 - 28
6 - 26 6 - 31
7 - 18 7 - 19
8 - 12 8 - 8
9 - 4 9 - 12
10 - 7 10 - 7
over 10 - 32 over 10 - 20
TOTAL 640 TOTAL 649
There is a 47% chance on mid. and a 50% chance on eve. a double will come from a prior digit drawn after 0 or 1 misses. Zero misses is when a double comes from a number drawn the day before. One miss is when there is 1 day between the double and the number drawn. Two misses is when there is 2 days between the double and the number drawn etc.
I hope this can help LP members determine which numbers to double. GOOD LUCK!!!!

The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.
