    Obviously it depends upon how you play, what the house rules are, and what you consider as a push. 

    If you play "no bust" blackjack (never hitting a 12 or higher) the probability is zero.

    If a dealer hits soft 17 the odds are lower than if the dealer stays on on soft 17.

    If you consider splitting a pair and winning one hand and losing the other a push, the odds are higher.

    In general the odds are about 5%.
