Using 0' s and 1's like the sample below does not give an accurate representation of an odd/even distribution.






Pick 5 Odd/Even Distribution 
All Odd

All Even

  Combinations    By Percentage
All Odd13.125
All Even13.125
1-Odd & 4-Even515.625
4-Odd & 1-Even515.625
2-Odd & 3 Even1031.250
3-Odd & 2-Even1031.250
Total =32100.0



When actually calculated against Fantasy 5 (5/39 game), the following actual results are obtained:



ODD/EVEN DISTRIBUTION
COMB'S%
ALL ODD=155042.693
ALL EVEN=116282.020
4-ODD/1-EVEN=9205515.989
1-ODD/4-EVEN=7752013.464
3-ODD/2-EVEN=19494033.858
2-ODD/3-EVEN=18411031.977
575757



COMB'S=amount of combinations

Note the differences in percentages and the balances of odd and even. Since 5/39 has more odd numbers, there a misbalance between odd and even being equal.

    Agreed. There will always be an imbalance between odd and even numbers in any game where there are an odd number of choices to be made regardless of the amount of numbers drawn no matter how many numbers are drawn. The same holds true, for instance, in a 6/49 game, albeit with slightly different percentages. And, unless 0 (zero) is used as a starting point, the imbalance will always be favoring the odd numbers. Good start.
