Make a Balanced Odd and Even Numbers in Your Combination:

 

Did you know that odd and even numbers in your combination matters?

When you fail to count the odd and even numbers in your combination, it hurts your chances of winning.

To understand the probability of a combination based on odd and even numbers, we need to take it from the context of number patterns.

In this case, we need to find the many ways odd and even numbers are combined to form a combination.

In the Daily Million 6/39 system, there are 7 ways you can combine numbers with odd and even numbers.

The next question now is which of these odd-even patterns is the best to play in the Daily Millions.

And the way to find out the answer is using probability theory.

To find the probability, we need to find the number of favourable combinations we can produce out of each pattern. Again, we use the binomial coefficient formula to determine the number of favourable combinations for each pattern.

 

Pattern Number of Combinations
6 odd and 0 even  38,760
5 odd and 1 even  294,576
4 odd and 2 even  828,495
3 odd and 3 even  1,104,660
2 odd and 4 even  736,440
1 odd and 5 even  232,560
0 odd and 6 even  27,132

 

 

 

 

To get the probability of each pattern, we use the probability formula. Therefore, the probability of these odd-even patterns are as follows:

Pattern Probability Calculus
6 odd and 0 even 0.011880012 1.19%
5 odd and 1 even 0.09028809 9.03%
4 odd and 2 even 0.253935254 25.39%
3 odd and 3 even 0.338580339 33.86%
2 odd and 4 even 0.225720226 22.57%
1 odd and 5 even 0.071280071 7.13%
0 odd and 6 even 0.008316008 0.83%

 

Based on the probability we can calculate the number of expected occurrences of odd and even patterns. We then match the expected occurrences with the actual occurrences using historical information over (100) Draws as follows:

Pattern Expected Occurrence (100 Draws) Actual Occurrence (100 Draws) Group
6 odd and 0 even 1 0 worst
5 odd and 1 even 9 9 bad
4 odd and 2 even 25 22 best
3 odd and 3 even 34 39 best
2 odd and 4 even 23 23 best
1 odd and 5 even 7 5 bad
0 odd and 6 even 1 2 worst

 

“To give you the best possible chances of winning, make a balanced mixture of odd and even pattern. When you fail to count the odd and even numbers in your combination, it hurts your chances of winning. As I said, probability calculations differ from one lottery to another, so you better visit the guide for each of the lottery draws.”

 

Make a Balanced Mix of Low and High Numbers in Your Combination:

The same thing with odd and even numbers, you must make sure that you have balanced low and high numbers in your combinations.

Again, to be able to calculate the probability, we must take everything from the context of number patterns.

Let’s make use of a 6/39 Daily Million game. A popular example of a 6/39 game in Ireland.

To start off, let’s divide the 39 numbers into two sets:

Low numbers = {1,2,3,4,5, 6…,20}

High numbers = {21,22,23,24, 25…,39}

We must know the number of ways by which we combine low and high numbers.

So here are the possible patterns, we also determined the number of favourable combinations for each pattern which is as follows:

Pattern Number of Combinations
6 low and 0 high  38,760
5 low and 1 high  294,576
4 low and 2 high  828,495
3 low and 3 high  1,104,660
2 low and 4 high  736,440
1 low and 5 high  232,560
0 low and 6 high  27,132

 

Next, we need to calculate the probability.

Some lottery system requires no extra ball but some system such as the EuroMillions requires two (2) extra balls to win the jackpot.

In both cases, we will only use the primary balls which are the 39 balls from the first drum. Therefore, the total number of possible combinations in a 6/39 game is 3,262,623.

Here’s the table of probability of low-high number combinations for a 6/39 game.

Pattern Probability Calculus
6 low and 0 high 0.011880012 1.19%
5 low and 1 high 0.09028809 9.03%
4 low and 2 high 0.253935254 25.39%
3 low and 3 high 0.338580339 33.86%
2 low and 4 high 0.225720226 22.57%
1 low and 5 high 0.071280071 7.13%
0 low and 6 high 0.008316008 0.83%

 

Again, based on the probability we can calculate the number of expected occurrences of low and high patterns. We then match the expected occurrences with the actual occurrences using historical information over (100) Draws as follows:

Pattern Expected Occurrence (100 Draws) Actual Occurrence (100 Draws) Group
6 low and 0 high 1 2 worst
5 low and 1 high 9 12 bad
4 low and 2 high 25 23 best
3 low and 3 high 34 31 best
2 low and 4 high 23 19 best
1 low and 5 high 7 11 bad
0 low and 6 high 1 2 worst

 

 

Based on our mathematical estimation, we now know that two patterns in the Daily Millions come out better than the rest of the patterns.

Again, it doesn’t make sense to choose your numbers based on the bad / worst patterns.

And that is why it’s important that you know how to pick good lottery numbers based on the combination that appears more frequently.

In this case, the best low-high number patterns in the Daily Millions are the 3-low-and-3-high, 4-low-and-2-high and the 2-low-and-4-high number patterns.

But most of the lottery players are not aware of these number patterns.

It pays to know the probability of your combinations.

“When you play the Daily Million, aside from getting the right odd-even pattern, make sure that you also get the right low-high pattern in your combination. Do your homework, check the past winning numbers of any 6/39 lotto system in the last 100 draws. The 3-odd-and-3-even and the 3-low-and-3-high number combination will always occur frequently. It’s a mathematical certainty. You just need to see it for yourself to believe it.”
