It may not be the best way, but one way is to:

$ sb_server.py -b

Then in the 'word query' box at the bottom of the web page that opens,
type your word and press enter, and there you go.

It would be easy enough to copy out the code that does this if you
wanted a script that would do it.  Something like (untested):

>>> from spambayes.storage import open_storage
>>> db = open_storage(filename[, use_db, mode])
>>> wordinfo = db._wordinfoget(word)
>>> if wordinfo: print "%s\t%d\t%d\t%d" % (word, wordinfo.spamcount,
wordinfo.hamcount, db.probability(wordinfo)
