Second card: one of 12 remaining cards of the same suit (12/51)

third card: one of 11 remaining cards of the same suit (11/50)

fourth card: one of 39 cards of any other suit (39/49)

Since all these are required events, use the multiplication rule to get the combined probability of all four events happening.

Odds are P(E)/(1-P(E)) where P(E) is the probability of an event taking place.
