As shown in Table SLP1a, 65.3% of the 5 number combinations are made of either 3 even balls and 2 odd balls, or vice versa. The next most common is 4 even and 1 odd or 1 even and 4 even. The rarest numerical combinations are those where the white balls are all even or all odd. In these cases, there is only a 2.2% chance of all even balls and a 2.8% chance of all odd balls occuring. So starting off, try to avoid combinations containing all odd or all even numbers. This may increase your chances of having a winning combination.
