Hot Dog Contest Odds: Joey Chestnut Favorite On Fourth Of July

Hot Dog Contest Odds: Joey Chestnut Favorite On Fourth Of July

This year's championship contest will be held July 4, and it will be televised on the ESPN family of networks.

Interest in the competition has grown in recent years thanks in large part to the rivalry of star eaters like Chestnut. Sudo has won the last four. Per usual, most will be tuning in to see if the current champion - Joey "Jaws" Chestnut - can emerge victorious and defend the crown yet again.

Crowds will flock to Coney Island on Wednesday to watch a time-honored holiday tradition: the Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contest.

Encore presentations of Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog-Eating Contest will air later that day on ESPN2 at 4 p.m. ET and 7:30 pm ET as well as on ESPNEWS at 6 p.m. ET. Today marked Chestnut's 11th win at the annual Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island. Ed Krachie broke his record in 1996 with 22.25 hot dogs, and that was followed by record-setting efforts by Hirofumi Nakajima (24.5 in 1997) and Kazutoyo Arai (25.125 in 2000).

A world record holder in nine other competitive eating categories, including shrimp cocktail, deep fried asparagus and matzah balls, Chestnut likely is to face his stiffest competition from Matt Stonie, who sits as a +350 underdog in head-to-head betting on the hot dog contest odds against the reigning champion. For starters, while a hot dog and its bun have to be eaten, they don't have to be eaten together.

Chestnut consumed 64 hot dogs in 10 minutes Wednesday.

She ate 37 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes, a few shy of the 41 she ate past year.

Chestnut, the current hotdog-eating world record holder from Vallejo, California, downed a whopping 74 weiners, dipping the buns in super-sized plastic cups of water during the 10-minute-long contest.

Since that victory, Chestnut has won 10 of the 11 Nathan's events.

Chestnut said he had "a vision" for this year's win, and seemed to be unfatigued after "10 minutes of work".
