"When playing 12 numbers in 6/49 the odds of having all the winning numbers fall among any 12 are 1 in 15,134 while still harder to win then Pick-4, 1 in 15,134 is better then 1 in 13.9 million for a chance of winning something. "

You know that even if you beat the 1 in 15,134 odds of having all of the winning numbers come from the 12 you chose from you'd still need to play 924 different combinations to guarantee that you had the winning combination instead of just having a set of numbers that might include some of the winning numbers, right?

Until you can convince the lottery to stop choosing the winning numbers from the entire set choosing your numbers from a smaller subset doesn't do anything to improve your odds.

Since that is never going to happen, you'll just have to pick your own subset and hope for the best.  It can be done, players have been known to win a jackpot once in a while.
