The odds when you flip a coin are more like 51-49

There’s a slightly better chance a coin will land in the same orientation it was thrown in. A flipping coin that was initially heads-up will always have been heads-up for at least as long as it will have been tails-up — and usually slightly longer. So there’s a better chance it will be stopped in the heads-up state.
