If he fails to grab this great opportunity and loses a 50-50 bet...you know.

This ようじゃ is a colloquial way of saying ようでは ("if something/someone is like ~"). ね is a filler particle, but it's probably working like "you know (what I mean)" here. It depends on the context, but usually something like "he was doomed to fail in the first place" is implied.
