Collective intuition and wisdom of the crowds in full effect.

The top 25 single combo boxes for the Texas Pick 3 as of 6/18/13 are...

028 126 048 145 013 015 389 127 034 157

169 159 125 239 047 345 279 347 378 026

017 268 148 569 678

25 combos once a day for 6 days at 50 cents each = a \$75 risk. The set of 25 combos would have to hit at least twice to even make a \$5 profit. The name of the game is to be accurate and profitable. In texas we can play the pick 3 twice a day. \$75 x 2 = risking \$150 a week for maybe one or 2 hits and of course would need at least 4 hits to make a \$10 profit....nahhhh I'll pass. If I'm missing the whole point or looking at this in the wrong way feel free to inform me of your views.

I can't say that I would play one specific set of combinations all week especially only 25 combos and still expect to be profitable at the end of the week. So here are 35 combos I feel will hit only for tonight in Texas.

019 028 029 039 046 047 048 049 056 057

058 067 069 128 136 137 138 145 146 147

148 156 157 168 238 245 246 247 258 267

345 346 348 357 456

35 Combos. Play any order for 50 cents.

Cost \$17.5

Win \$40

Profit \$22.50

Doubles are over due so it would be wise to play a few. My 49 double combos.

889 557 668 223 355 004 266 116 122 677

599 299 115 224 144 088 566 344 588 009

033 002 227 099 233 055 005 228 446 669

077 339 334 011 119 388 377 899 448 166

799 466 337 044 003 277 499 118 199

49 combos. Play any order for 50 cents.

Cost \$24.5

Win \$80

Profit \$55.5

If we break it down in terms of ODDS...... how many numbers must we play....... to win at least once a week in pick- 3 ?

If..... we playone single box number each day we will win on average........ every 166 days.

So, if you want to win around once a week how many should we play each day?       At least25 box singles a day.

P.S. * That's if you consider hitting a box number a win.     Win Money \$\$ wise ...you have to figure that separately.

Ok.....remember for right now (NO PROFIT Strategies yet ).  Let's keep it simple and easy to follow.  Just the number of HITS can be the focus for now.

We just need to be EFFECTIVE  right now.......... we can be EFFECENT.......(with profit) ........ latter.

We're just interested in the number of "Hits" we must have per week using X number of picks....... box numbers.

Odds say..... no matter what numbers we use every day.... even if we use the same numbers each day......the  results will be the same.

Let's do a little"Speed Testing" using ALL of the state games .......Mid and Eve.

I'm going to use a little more ammunition than the 25 boxes .......we might need just a few more picks to see more clearly usingALL of the states games.   I'm going to use Box numbers that are easy to pick out of the  dozens of state games each day.  Everyone can remember these groups and it will be easy for everyone to see as well.

Using an additional 5 box numbers for a total of 30 boxes ....... this should give us at least one hit per week. If no....then we will know even 30 is not enough.

The 10 ALL Evens ............ 024, 026, 028, 046, 048, 068, 246, 248, 268, 468

The 10 All Odds ............ 135, 137, 139, 157, 159, 179, 357, 359, 379, 579

The 10 All HIGH.............567, 568, 569, 578, 579, 589, 678, 679, 689, 789     we will compensate for the 579 over lap.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Luck is a very rare thing....... Odds not so much.

Odds never change .....but probability does.

Ok....results using the 30 boxes up there.......actually 29 box numbers we have the following totals for Monday and Tuesday games ALL States.

Of the 69 Monday games ...... we had 5 All evens........ + 6 All odds.......and 2 ALL High boxes   Total + 13 Hits

Of the 68 Tuesday games ....................1 all even ........+ 0 all odds.......and  6 All High boxes    Total + 7 Hits

Odds say..... using those 29 boxes every day .....for ALL games we should expect a hit rate of around .......12 hits per day.  Except perhaps for Sundays.

Whats the total games we have per week mid and eve ....7 days a week?

*****     That would translate to a normal  ONE STATE PICK 3 Game .......to around1 hitper every ....5.7 draws.  Call it 6 draws or ......once a week.  Using 29 boxes.

If you beat that rate for a year.....your running above expectations.

** If... you're not getting at least ONE hit per week using 29 boxes... you stink... and should reevaluate your life. LOL

P.S. ...again cause someone always forgets to read these post..... we are just counting HITS right now ...and seeing how many Boxes we need to average a hit once a week.  We will do profits later.

Profit is a whole different ball game and it depends on the individual .....everything.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

Way too many tickets to buy.  I use keys and or hot digits ,recent history,and my programs, and get maybe 5 max.  This leaves money for pb and other games.

Of the 69Thursday games................3 all even ............+3 all odds..........and 4 All High boxes ...Total + 10  Hits

Remember......we  expected an average of around 12 hits.....per ALL the Daily Pick 3 games.

No big surprise... with 1 day to go we are already at the  11+ plus so far.

Stand by for Friday results but...we already know its gonna round out to the EXPECTED 12 hits

This is using the same static group of numbers each day too. Using them on every state's draw.......but we still get the same results!

This pretty much proves that no one could do any better in his own state...with his own Pick 3 system during the year.

It all comes down to the ODDS.

The only real failure .....is the failure to try.

How can you say, "This proves no one can do any better."   All this proves is that the game functions

as designed.  The outcome of your test faired exactly as one would expect given the number of games

played, odds, etc....  Using static lines in this manner should not produce any differently then randomly

selecting new lines for each game.

What you should have said is "That unless a system or method shows a significant number of hits greater

than the results acheived by this test then your system is mearly functioning at or near the levels of chance."

I for one am not surprised by the results of this test.  IMHO it's true value would be to provide a benchmark

for systems or methods testing, not as proof that "no one can do better than the odds."

I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else
