A smart pick is a set of numbers that contain certain elements that will do better over time.

One of the best examples I can give is digit counts.  In a 5-39 game around 75% of all games

will be made up of at least 5 and less than 7.  Example set.  2-3-13-23-32 contains digits 1-2-3.

If a person plays this type of line then on average they have no chance of winning a JP 3 out of

every 4 games played.

The set 1-14-21-26-30 has a 6 digit count, 0-1-2-3-4-6 for 6 total.   This sounds a little weird as

every set has the same exact odds.   Random has no effect on this because the balls drawn will

mimic the population of the pool.  If 75% of all the sets in the matrix have 5 or 6 total digits then

so will 75% of the drawings.   Another example is odd/even counts.  Around 70% of all draws for

the same 5-39 matrix will have either 2 or 3 odd number balls, again this is not a product of random

but one of population.  A QP can have these same types of elements but more often than not they

do not.   This may seem like small stuff but consider this, lets say a person buys 1,000 tickets per

year with digit counts less than 5 or greater than 6.  Around 750 of those will of had no chance of

winning a JP.   I don't say that we should only play these types of sets but that our play should mimic

the matrix.   Most self pick players track this sort of data to try and improve their chances of winning

by putting it to use at the right time.  When is the right time to throw down, I can't say, that's the

random part.

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

Smart pick was coined in Gail Howard's software years ago, it has since been defined by others to mean something different.  You can still check out her website to see what she meant by the term and the software she sells to make those picks.

* you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

I dont know what <snip> smart pick is.

Many people coin the term "smart pick.  Different from Quick Pick or Easy Pick.  It is looking for a particular pattern.  In the case of the the person mentioned in the above posts, those smart picks are looking for mostly three particular patterns. Generally the pattern is either increasing, decreasing or symmetrical.  You can read the book to get an idea of what those patterns look like.

Except, of course, that that's a gross misunderstanding of how things work.  It isn't that they have "no chance of winning" 75% of the time; it's that the digit count of the winning numbers will be higher than the digit count on their tickets 75% of the time. Each and every one of those tickets had exactly the same chance of winning as any other ticket; they just didn't win in those drawings.
