    Yep, everyone should create $1 parlays on the upcoming NFL playoff weekend.
    There will be more parlay winners than lottery winners for sure.

    I only wasted 10 bucks instead of 20 so I figure I got another 10 to burn. Got 2 of 5 earlier in the week so I'm due.

    700 mil now. Don't care about the odds I'm playing this one. One time, that's all I need.

    Hit the 17 last drawing, so won $4 on a $6 ticket. Put $2 back in so in for another $6 this round.

    Bad thing is, I would probably be dead in 5 years if I hit it.

    Dream the dream because that's all it is.. Lotto spends alot on advertising that gives you false hope..

    When the jackpot was around 500 million before.... awhile back... I decided to play. I was behind this one guy in line... dude spent $200 in tickets on the Powerball. Kept on saying I feel lucky! I feel lucky. I just smiled because the dude was all geeked and excited.

    My question is... if you feel lucky... why are you spending $200 worth?

    If avg person spends 40 per week pm scratch offs n tickets..it's 2k year..on 5 yrs that 10k could pay for 65 percent if a new Toyota prius. It's hard enough to win one number let alone all of the numbers....more go broke chasing it then winning at it. Sports betting last 6 months..I'm slightly ahead

    I can do you one better. The real idiot tax are the people who have been trained to go out drinking every weekend. And an even bigger idiot tax than that are the people who pay to smoke cancer sticks; those are the real idiots.

    According to Dr. Min Su Kim, who teaches statistics at Southern University, a close examination of Powerball winning numbers over a period of 10 years revealed a pattern.

    The Powerball drawing consists of five white balls and one red Powerball. Dr. Kim went back 10 years and found the top 5 numbers that have won millions of dollars for thousands of people. Dr. Kim says the most frequently drawn Powerball number for the past 10 years is number 20. It is followed by 37, 2, 31, and 35.
    As for those white balls, the most popular is number 42. It is closely followed by 16, 35, 26, and 19.
    “If you pick these numbers, there’s probably more probability to win the grand prize,” Dr. Kim says.

    This seems like a bizarre and patently false claim for a statistician to make, but then again, if you’re hoping against hope that you might win the lottery, odds are that you probably don’t mind a little bit of “science” that goes against the grain.
    Interestingly, other studies which claim to chart the most frequently drawn Powerball numbers have reached different conclusions, in part because the Powerball rules changed slightly in 2012.
    For instance, LottoNumbers’ own study found that the most frequently picked Powerball numbers are 20 and 6. The most frequently picked white ball numbers are 26, 41, 16, 22, 42, 35, and 39. So there is some interesting overlap there, specifically with numbers 16, 35, and 26.
