My references have been checked after attending a second round job interview. Do you think there is an offer on the way if my references check out? Would they bother otherwise?

I went to a first round interview for a large non-profit organization. They were interviewing all day to fill two positions, so I anticipate the interviewed about 6 candidates. I was then called back for a second round interview, and I anticipate 2 other candidates were as well as it appeared that they were only interviewing during the afternoon. Within an hour after completing the second interview my references were being called. After the second interview, do employers usually make a decision before checking references, or can references be a deciding factor? Do you think I will get an offer?
