~Statistical Distributions

Missing 2 cards, expect a 1-1 split 52% of the time.

Missing 3 cards, expect a 2-1 split 78% of the time.

Missing 4 cards, expect a 3-1 split 50% of the time.

Missing 5 cards, expect a 3-2 split 68% of the time.

Missing 6 cards, expect a 4-2 split 48% of the time.

Missing 7 cards, expect a 4-3 split 62% of the time.

Said another way,
~missing an even number of cards, they will not split evenly, but otherwise, will tend to split as close to evenly as possible.
~Missing an odd number of cards, they will tend to split as evenly as possible.
