What goes around
Perhaps karma can be explained by simple armchair psychology. People who do good things will eventually tend to develop a positive attitude toward the world after seeing the happiness that their works produce. In this positive state of mind, they will tend to focus more on positive aspects of things and pay less attention to the negative aspects. So, it seems that luck is in their favor. In contrast, people who do selfish things will trend toward a negative attitude after experiencing how people treat them in return. In this negative state of mind, they may perceive the same event in a totally different light, seeming as if luck is against them.
