A sporting chance

不错的机会

A: Do you think we can make this deal?

B: It’s not definite that they’ll accept our offer, but there’s a sporting chance.

Note: If there is a sporting chance that something good will happen, it is possible that it will happen. “Sporting” is closely associated with gambling, or taking a risk in the hope of winning big. A sporting chance by definition means a fair chance, an opportunity. As in betting on a racing horse, so long as you’re given a chance to make a bet, there’s always a chance of winning, however slim. And since sporting competitions are usually fair competitions, that chance is a fair chance, and even a fairly good chance.
