probability

noun anticipation, appearance of truth, believability, chance, conceivability, credibility, expectation, fair chance, fair expectation, favorable chance, liability, liableness, likelihood, likeliness, odds, plausibility, possibility, presumption, promise, prospect, reasonable chance, reasonableness, tendency, veri similitudo, verisimilitude

PROBABILITY. That which is likely to happen; that which is most consonant to reason; for example, there is a strong probability that a man of a good moral character, and who has heretofore been remarkable for truth, will, when examined as a witness under oath, tell the truth; and, on the contrary, that a man who has been guilty of perjury, will not, under the same circumstances, tell the truth; the former will, therefore, be entitled to credit, while the latter will not.
