look up any word, like tribbing:
 
1.
a possibility, something that can happen, something that won't happen is "not in the cards"
I'm down to get stoned, but I got no money and no grass, so it's just not in the cards

2.
likely to happen, probable (possibly from the cards used by fortune tellers)
Another win for the team is in the cards.
