  1. To be at odds with someone means to be at enmity with them. You could also use the word odds to say, “Odds are we might experience some slight turbulence and then…explode.” The exploding part is from Firefly.

  2. The odds are extremely low of winning the lottery. Most lotteries have odds of 18 million to one to 120 million to one. Extremely low.

  3. What are my odds? Not good I’d bet, if I were a betting man. Today looks good though, maybe my luck has changed. Today, for once maybe the odds are in my favor. Today I’ll take a chance, just this once.

  6. The odds never seem to be in ones favor. It’s like the whole world just sits back and laughs as you struggle through the endless maze of questions. Odds are many never find the end. The answers. Maybe that’s not the point though.

  7. Odds are you are writing this from a nice laptop, in a nice neighborhood, in a nice town. The odds are you have never had to fight for the things that you needed- the bare necessities of life. The chances are that you sleep in a warm bed every night and never think about the ones that sleep under bridges. Spare them a thought.

  8. As much as I would like to be at odds with no one, I am at odds with some people. Certainly all those who voted for Newt I am at odds with. I just don’t get what people see in him. I am at odds with bosses who make dumb choices.

  9. The chances of that ever happening again? Unlikely. Infact, let’s just note it as HIGHLY unlikely. I don’t believe that the odds are in my favor, it’s about having as much hope for winning the lottery. Something close to nearly impossible.

  10. Sitting on the tallest brick wall in town, and swinging combat-booted foot feet from naked calves–yeah, we were rebels. We’d sit there for hours, watching all the other girls and women slave in drying fields underneath a dying sun, and we’d all be like, “Yeah, we’re all very, very odd.”

  11. I’m an odd person
    The age I will be turning is even
    What are the odds?

    My initials are EEG
    I have seizures
    Again, what are the odds?

    Does ODDS stand for something?
    Occasional Dancing Destructibly Syndrome?
    Because I definitely have that
    These are odd thoughts

  12. The odds were certainly against him. For one, he was what some would call a loser. He wasn’t exactly a social butterfly, although he could usually hold his own when it was required of him. And, just look at her. she was gorgeous, no, more than that. He couldn’t put to words the way he made her feel. All he had to do was talk to her.

  13. Odds are, if you’re reading this, you’ve never had to sleep on the street in winter. Odds are, you have a favorite caffeinated drink.
    Odds are, you enjoy words.

  14. It’s a funny thing, what happens in that swift moment you toss the quarter into the air, and time slows as I watch it rotate in the air. The odds are even- fifty fifty, but I know it is more than just luck that we’re each betting on to turn that coin into either your or my favour. And really, which face of that silver cylinder holds the best outcome for me anyways? It’s a precarious thing, betting on something when you’re not entirely sure it’s what you want. I had called tails. But as gravity wins and spirals the quarter down to your open palm, I realize I desperately wanted to be wrong.
