With the world cup coming up, our office/yard is having an office sweep. Each person who buys a ticket randomly draws a team out of a hat/box. Because we don't have 32 people in these locations, generally the office people buy two random tickets then the people in the yard buy a single random ticket.
Let's assume 8 teams are more likely to win than the others, is there any difference in the odds of winning if:
A) The office people buy two tickets than the yard buy the remaining.
B) The office people buy a single ticket, than the yard people buy a single ticket, than the office buy another ticket.
I feel like the odds should change, because there is then less choices for the yards people in A.
I understand obviously the office staff have an advantage because they are buying two tickets. But does the order of buying them affect chances?
