No one can tell you whether u have a chance or not. there are people with higher scores not getting matched, and also there are people with lower scores who got matched.
Alot of other factors also play a role such as USCE, and showing your level of interest in the field you're applying for.
Do as much USCE as you can in a hospital setting such as an externship to increase your chances. keep options open for family medicine as well.
get experience in both fields, that will greatly increase your chances for either one.
