Why does santiago believe his luck may change on the eighty fifth day

Santiago is superstitious with numbers. Manolin reminds Santiago that he had missed similar number of days before he broke his last bad luck streak.
"But remember how you went eighty-seven days without fish and then we caught big ones every day for three weeks." "I remember," the old man said. "I know you did not leave me because you doubted."
