Other possible definitions for the glossary

A few definitions that could be added:

A - Odd / Even ratio: the ratio of odd numbers and even numbers in a draw. For a draw with numbers 02, 11, 19, 24, 35 and 47, the ratio would be 4 / 2. The reverse ratio (Even / Odd) can also be considered.

B - Spread or width of a draw: The difference between the highest number and the lowest one. For a draw with numbers 02, 11, 19, 24, 35 and 47, the spread is 45 (47 - 02).

C - Consecutive numbers: Same definition as for adjacent numbers. The combination 1-2-3-4-5-6 has 6 consecutive numbers.

Whenever possible, a brief example should be included in the definition.

Also, Neighboring numbers

D - Gap; (spacing) The number of missing numbers when the numbers drawn are listed in numeric order, similar: Delta numbers
ex. : 1-2-6-----Gap: 0-3

E - Companion (friend) numbers drawn together often
ex. ; 20-43 hit 67 times

Whenever possible, a brief example should be included in the definition.

Skip = The number of draws missed before a number hits again
Due = (1)A number that is expected to fall because of various statistics, gut feel, expectation. (2) Long-shot numbers (those which have skipped 15 or more draws) are sometimes said to be "due" to hit.

Could be covered by "Skip and Hit Pattern" and "Overdue"
