hmmmmmmmm this would be a real challenge with only 3 draws of information.
Just for fun ... don't mortgage the house
... but lets look a what has not happened yet. Not what numbers have not occurred but what group of numbers may be deficit. Now in a mature lottery one measures trends and in a very overly simplified statement one measures what is hot. In the special circumstances of a lottery that is just starting one should look at what has not yet happened knowing that "on average" all numbers in a 6/49 have a tendence to appear within approx 25 draws.
For your lottery luckyfish, our only "hot number" so far is 3 .. so include 3 in your pool. When we look at the last three draws there is an emerging pattern in the tens group hits ie:
Draw one has one number <10 #3, two numbers in the 10's group #12 and #11(bonus) and I am including the bonus number because we are starved for analysis information .. do not include the bonus number for analysis in a mature lottery, one number in the 30's # 38 group and one number in the 40's group. We can see from the next draws 10's grouping patterns that there appears to be clumping in the 30's group, 40's group and 10's group.
So far in total we have 4 representatives of the <10's group, 6 from the tens group, only 2 from the 20's group, 4 from the 30's group and 5 from the 40's group.
Again ..just for fun.. why not try numbers 20 to 29, add the number 3 because it has occured twice, throw in the number 11 because it has appeared twice (once as a bonus), add the other two bonus numbers because they have not yet shown up as regular numbers and select 3 numbers each from the hotest groups of 10's and 40's.
ie: 10, 14 and 15 have not yet appeared and 40, 41 and 49 have also not yet shown up.
This gives us a 20 number pool to wheel:
These would be the Top 20 predictons for the South African 6/49
Put them in the wheel and then filter the bets for unusual sums and combinations..particularily more than 3 sequential numbers when we are using so many 20's in our pool. Let us know the results from your next draw and good luck.
