Game-tracking site BetOnline has released its odds for the 2021 NFL season, and — surprise! — the Bengals probably don't have a chance in hell.

The Super Bowl happens in just a few days, and you know who isn’t in it?

The Cincinnati Bengals.

Yes, again.

And oddsmakers aren’t placing their bets on the team for next season, either.

BetOnline, a leading game-tracking site, sets the Bengals’ chances of a Super Bowl run at 75 to 1 for the 2021 season. The Bengals are tied for last place in BetOnline’s NFL rankings with the Denver Broncos, Detroit Lions, Jacksonville Jaguars and New York Jets.

The Kansas City Chiefs, who are headed to Super Bowl LV this Sunday to take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, are the favorite for 2021, with 5 to 1 odds.

The Bengals have seen Super Bowl action only twice — in 1982 and 1989, losing both times.

Cincinnati's team ended its 2020 season 4-11-1.

But the Bengals are getting new uniforms soon, so maybe something magical will happen for 2021?

Super Bowl LV takes place on Sunday, Feb. 7, with kickoff at 6:30 p.m.
