Multiple sportsbooks are offering odds for this year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. SI Gambling analyst Ben Heisler goes through the available list of bets.
There may not be fans cheering on the best competitive eaters in the world this July 4 due to COVID-19 restrictions, but that won’t stop the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest from once again taking place in Coney Island.
On the men’s side, Joey Chestnut is the unstoppable force; winner of 12 of the last 13 events in a field of six. The last time he was upset was in the 2015 competition, where Matt Stonie, AKA “The Jordan Spieth of Tubed Beef” brought him down with a 62-60 hot dog advantage.
For the women’s competition, Miki Sudo will be looking to capture her seventh title in the Nathan’s Famous contest.
Television coverage on ESPN will begin at 12 pm ET, starting
