A LP Gold member posting 25 predictions for all states on the LP Predictions Pick-3 board for Midday and Evening, how many would be expected to be winners regardless of method, in other words, what should the average number of hits be?

Thanks BobP

Whatever the odds for each number are. Straight=1 in 1000. Boxed= depends on 6 way or 3 way.

However, only 1 number can be the winner for each respective state.

CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

Thanks but not exactly what I was looking for.

Let's try it another way.   Post 25 pick-3 numbers daily to the LP prediction board for midday and evening all states.

See yesterday's winners you're averaging 12 winners altogether for each day.  Is that better, worse or the same as expected just playing random numbers?

Thanks BobP
