I have looked at the data for the 48-49 (with one as the bonus number) combination. You are right: one of these numbers often repeat in the next draw. and if you consider 48-49 coming out as regular numbers (22 times), in 55% of the cases, one of the two did it repeat in the next draw. But I do not have time to check the other 1175 2-number combinations to verify if the 48-49 combination is the best (it should be at least near the top) in that matter.

By the way, could provide some information on how you came out with number 32 as a great announcer for 2 double LD (when considering the 7 numbers). I checked all 49 numbers and the worst announcer is number 33 with 35.6%; Number 32 is better with 42.9% but it is still the 8th worst performer in this matter. How could you pass the 41 other numbers, especially the five numbers with over 60% announcing 2 double LD or better. The best number in that matter is 13 with 64.4%. As mentioned already, over 50% of the draws had 2 double LD or better.

And, Dennis, if you bother answering this posting (and I know you will), could you please leave out the name calling, innuendos and other side remarks. Stick to the facts.
