Ben Roethlisberger said it best. The Steelers have no chance. Yes, Roethlisberger was being sarcastic during his press conference, but it ultimately showed exactly what the Steelers were thinking. It's going to be extremely hard to beat the Chiefs in tonight's football game as heavy underdogs.

Do the MGM bettors agree? Here are the most popular bets for the Steelers vs Chiefs Wild Card match-up via Bet MGM.

Chiefs -12.5 (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

The public is starting to back the Steelers. The Steelers went 9-7-1 and found their way into the playoffs after some incredible wins late in the season. Still, the Chiefs have played extremely well on the defensive end throughout the second half of the season and even with JuJu Smith-Schuster returning, the Pittsburgh offense just doesn't have an appeal right now. 55 percent of the bets are on +12.5 for the Steelers but only 50 percent of the handle is on the Steelers.

Under 46.5 (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

Most bettors don't believe in the Steelers scoring enough points. With the way the Chiefs have played in the second half of the season on the defensive end, I don't blame them. But it's always hard to rely on an under when the Kansas City Chiefs are playing on the offensive end. The offense for the Chiefs hasn't been brilliant like years past, but it's still good enough and should show up in tonight's game.

71 percent of the bets are on the under but 85 percent of the handle is on the under. The sportsbooks are rooting for the over big-time tonight, especially over at MGM.

Top Prop Bets for Steelers vs Chiefs

Travis Kelce to score 1st Touchdown (+650) (Bet $100 to Win $650)

Travis Kelce to score Anytime Touchdown (-110) (Bet $110 to Win $100)

Ben Roethlisberger Over 226.5 Passing Yards (-115) (Bet $115 to Win $100)

Everyone loves to back Travis Kelce in these spots. The Steelers haven't been great defensively this year and have actually had the worst statistical season under Mike Tomlin on the defensive side of the ball. Yet, here the Steelers are. Back in the playoffs again. It's really incredible. Kelce has done a great job this year for the Chiefs and should be able to take advantage against a poor secondary for the Steelers. On the other hand, most bettors basically believe that the Chiefs will be ahead early in this game. With that, Ben Roethlisberger would be throwing the ball a lot in the second half of the season knowing this could be his final career game. I don't hate this bet at all.
