    While it’s true you can’t better your long term odds, if you are picking multiple squares – you can invoke a strategy.

    Pick squares along a diagonal or so that each square has a unique row and column – this maximizes the chance you’ll win a single square.

    Pick squares in the column or row preferentially in the direction of the underdog/visiting team. You’ll maximize the chance that you’ll be the big winner – winning two or more squares.

    Typically both the team and the numbers are assigned after, so utilizing those strategies does not improve your chance.

    It’s just random. I did two squares pools and got terrible numbers in both (one I had five squares, none good numbers).

    Thanks for the details and hopefully you have good #s for Super Bowl 48.

    I have been tracking the scores for all games from 1-47 with number pairs by quarter so you can see if they have ever paid and how often as well as Coin Toss stats for those prop bettors.

    Good luck to all especially those with 2&2, 5&5, 8&8 and 9&9.
