Significado de "Most Likely"

45 1
Hello, guys! What is the meaning of the expression "most likely"?

I've seen this on Facebook page of Jimmy Fallon's TV show, where he puts some pictures of athletes with a subtitle as "most likely to be the eyes behind the paintings at the old mansion". I can understand the whole idea of the joke, I even laugh sometimes, :lol: but I still didn't pick up this expression. Could you guys help me?

Thanks a lot!
