I have same stats. I've noticed that the most frequent 5-letter sequences don't repeat with enough frequency to make a good prediction. I use my "Pairs-Due lists" to choose the first 2 letters, and then building further using Due lists for P2-3, P3-4, P4-5. When you do this, the choices are narrowed down to only a few pairs.
When I built the sets for 1/16 I chose BB in P1-2. BC was a good possibility. Had I chose BC, I would have had to choose a C. in P2-3. If I had picked CE, then I would have probably added an EE in P4-5, or EF. But, I probably would have rejected EF and came up with BCEEE. I would have assigned numbers according to other Due lists for individual numbers, positions, or the X-Y charts. No way to know if i would have picked 41.44.49 in P3-5!!!
That's the major challenge - choosing the right numbers!! BB or BC. It was a flip of the coin situation since they were back to back in my Due list!!
If you plan on using alpha-numeric substitution in future, you will need more than just 5-letter sequences! It's a chore logging the numbers, but once you have a full set, its easy - if you do it after each draw!!
