Powerball: How do you pick your numbers?

Posted: Updated:

There are 175,223,510 possible combinations of numbers in the Powerball drawing. Tonight millions will drop their two dollars on counters across the country in search of their piece of the pie.

When you hold your ticket in your hand absolutely sure you are going to win, remember you actually have a better chance of being struck by lightning.

Better odds than winning the jackpot:
Becoming president of the United States
Becoming a movie star
Selecting a perfect NCAA bracket
Becoming an astronaut
Drowning in a bathtub
Dying in an asteroid apocalypse

How people who play the Powerball select their numbers is quite a different story. While prior winners have won selecting their numbers and by allowing the computer to pick, there really isn't a science. Everyone goes with their hunch, usually with the same result.
