The probability of a coin toss landing heads is mathematically 50/50 - 1 in 2. It doesn't matter if, experimentally, after a billon tosses it's 49/51 because the pure mathematics is not influenced by real-time experimentation due to the fact that it is impossible to rule out every single random factor that might, in any given situation, affect an actual coin toss.
