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.

MIDDAY                                                      EVENING

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!!!!

In a nutshell, 50% of the time the digit that is the double, will be one of the digits from the drawing the day before or the day before that, at least in Maryland. Good Luck!!

Agree. 100% of the time the double will contain a number thru 0-9.

Thanks, grwurston!

You're welcome. Reducing the numbers to play, from 1 out of 10 to 1 out of 6 or less, makes sense to me.
