    I always choose from the hottest half.  Take the whole list of numbers, from hottest to coldest, take the top half, the top third, or the top quarter, and choose anything from that list.

        I have 58 sets of numbers that I tag and score....each set of numbers is given a megaball at the begining.....i play my top 10 or 15 regardless of what mega ball is attached.

          I watch the flow of decades, not a hard and fast rule, but powerballs tend to cluster in decades... usually for 2 or 3 draws, sometimes as high as 5 or 6 draws in a row from the same decade (1-10...11-20...21-30...31-40...41-42, this is 5 decades, plot history with decade value beside PB number...)

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

            So If I choose 2 decades ,which are 20 numbers.Then I only have 1/20 of chance to have it match with straight balls.What could I do to reduce the numbers to 10?

              Try this. Take your list of Bonus numbers and take the difference between each chonologically. Then count the the differences. This combined with something else might work for you. In the sample below, zero means the same bonus number occurred two times in a row. 

               




              -103
              -96
              -86
              -75
              -67
              -53
              -47
              -37
              -28
              -18
              010
              13
              26
              38
              410
              57
              64
              75
              86
              93
              106
