A system is only better at predicting numbers than randomly picking them if the results are better than what you would get with the random numbers. The system is not just automatically better because it is a system.
Love the Packers of course.
I don't know that the analogy is that great though. The relationship between the quarterback and the receivers is completely different than the relationship between the lottery and us players. The lottery is not making every effort to match up its numbers with our numbers, like a quarterback trying to make his pass match where the receivers run.
More like: Instead of a quarterback, the receivers have a ball throwing machine, which will throw the ball completely randomly. Different locations, speeds, trajectories, all over the field. Now, would it matter if the receiver runs a set route each time based on where the last ball ended up? Or just as good a chance running around all over the place like you state?
You would probably guess that I'd be the lazy receiver just standing sort of out in the middle waiting for the machine to send one my way, rather than moving all over the place for no apparent reason? Maybe that's what I would do idk. Maybe if I did I'd catch the same number of balls as any of the other receivers.
