Do some number combinations have better odds?

Interesting mirror image picks on your MM and PB tickets Ronnie316.

Looking at your lines I see that they all have at least one number delta of 4 or less. Is that an intentional part of your number selection method or just a coincidence?  The reason I ask is that I also do this for the 5/40 +1 type games that I play as one piece of my overall strategy. If you do pick your numbers this way how is it working for you in the bigger number field jackpot games? Do you find you win more often than the overall odds would indicate? I'm guessing that you also work in some sort of drawings skipped component as well.

I've only usually played PB when the JP's got massive but lately I've been inclined to play more often and I'm curious to see if my 5/40 game strategy translates well for a 5/59 game. You've already given me a good tip for bonus ball selection in the bigger games and I'd be appreciative of any other insights that you may have.

Also congratulations on your successful and long lived thread. I've found it to be one of the more informative, and often times entertaining, threads on LP.

    I didn't know where to post this, so I'll just post it here since it kinda relates to the topic.

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 40 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56 57 58 59 (Powerball game) 

    Trends with the numbers: 

    3 low, 2 high
    3 high, 2 low

    3 odds, 2 evens
    2 evens, 3 odds

    1 3 5 7 9 11 13 15 17 19 21 23 25 27 29 31 33 35 37 39 41 43 45 47 49 51 53 55 57 59 (30 odds)

    2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 32 34 36 38 40 42 44 46 48 50 52 54 56 58 (29 evens)

    Example of a possible winning combination:

    5 - 10 - 21 - 30 - 39 

    This is how the PB draws usually looks like. I noticed however that odd numbers are more likely to draw, especially low odd numbers. It's just a matter of picking the right combinations, and in my opinion, picking the numbers that are very frequent from past results. Can't wait to win this Wed. If not Wed., then on Sat... when the PB goes to $143 Million. Cool

        Thanks msharkey2001, just coincidence. I collected these lines over time as opportunity permitted. I consider them "pool" numbers that anyone can play, and that's why I post them. I'm working on the idea (among others) that groups of people playing the lottery have BETTER ODDS because of positive energy.

        Your work sounds awesome too, and thanks for posting. Lets see if we hit a big winner soon.

                The winning numbers were 35 numbers deep in the previous results. How often does this happened?

                  It happened eleven times in the 804 MM drawings since its last matrix change but 640 drawings had all winning numbers even less than 35 numbers deep during that same period.

                      640? Are you trying to say 64 drawings had the winning numbers 35 numbers deep or less? Can we please see the list again so I don't have to search for it?

                        Speaking of "What happens most is most likely to happen again",here is a group of 28 MM numbers that matched 5 thirty-six times in the last 799 draws.  That's an average of once ever 22 draws.

                        02 03 04 05 09 10 11 12 13 14 16 17 18 20 24 27 29 31 35 36 38 39 40 46 48 51 52 53

                        I'm still watching this set RJOh posted. Once every 22 draws is way BETTER than probability would dictate.

                            This will be like cracking the "Mercury Rising" super code. Out of the 35 numbers listed below 15 regular numbers can be chosen and 1 bonus number. Choose wisely.
