The Lowest Outcome Possible : 01 - 02 - 03 - 04- 05 - 06 = 21
The Highest Outcome Possible : 44 - 45 - 46 - 47 - 48 - 49 = 279
Most winning outcomes are : ((21 + 279)/2) = 150 (+/-) Standard Deviation
I won't bore you with the full statistical breakdowns, but you can see where I'm going with this.
Counting Cards in BlackJack, Poker statistics (odds of a Royal Flush), etc. are all numbers without the emotion. They say that every Lotto Outcome has the same odds of appearing, but I disagree. The odds of 01-02-03-04-05-06 being drawn is highly unlikely.

Ummm..it's been a while since my upper-class college statistics days, but your reasoning strikes me as entirely false. No number is any more or less likely to come up as any other number. The fact that the balls are numbered is irrelevant; they might as well have different pictures on them in terms of their chance of being picked. Therefore no mathematical operation or assumption can help your odds at all.

Improving your odds from 1 in 200 million to 1 in 100 million is not going to help you much in the Lottery. Remember, you need to improve your odds so much that your statistical chances of winning times your expected win exceed your investment or you're wasting your time. E.G. if you can make your odds of winning 1 in 1000 and there's a 1000 dollar reward, you need to spend less than dollar for your reward to be greater than your risk. Good luck with that. :)

The only method of guaranteeing yourself a 100% chance of winning a lottery is to play the same numbers, every single draw, indefinitely. You may win tomorrow or next year or next decade or next millennium.. but eventually your combination of numbers WILL be drawn.
So, if you are immortal, you should get started! There is a good chance that you may outlive the lottery system that you're playing though. :/

The lottery is pure chance. You can't base facts on past results of chance (in this context). No matter what numbers you pick, you will have the same small percentage of chance to win it. Like Headwards said, you want a greater chance to win, buy more...a lot more...

The odds of you winning are always the same. Only way to increase your odds are by buying more tickets.
The reason why there are more winners with winning number totals between 117 and 183 is because there are more possible combinations that could equal that total. Like you said there is only one combination that could equal 21 or 279. The more you go towards the middle the more possible combinations there are.
