    Welcome to the forum.

    Where did you find these idioms? Have you looked them up on Google? Have you checked the Idioms section of this forum?

    If it's any help:

    1) I have never heard of "be laid flush with".
    2) "To beat the odds" (no "in" at the end)
    3) "To feed the meter".
    4) I have never heard of "bits and bites".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
