Default Chances of Match?

Hi everyone!
I graduated in 2012 and am an IMG. I will be applying for my residency this year but I am really scared about the match. My scores are not that good, but I have some articles in an international journal and some in my journals back home. I also have 8 weeks of USCE and 4 weeks of observership in a top hosp in the US. I have cleared step 1(219) step 2(236) and CS(1st attempt)
I am planning to give my step 3 after the match of 2016.
I know that there are many others who are well qualified than I am.
What are my chances in the match?
Thanks a ton!
