You’re damn right I’m going to be betting on Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest! A tradition unlike any other, pregaming for a Fourth of July party while watching the replay of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
On the degenerate gambling rankings, this feels slightly less insane than betting on the Puppy Bowl. So here are my picks, odds courtesy of MyBookie.ag.
Men’s 2019 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – To Win
Give me the field +700!
Chestnut is a beast, but +700! Stonie won in 2015 and I think he steals one again.
Men’s Winner of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – Total
U 73.5 +110.
In the history of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, the total has only gone over 73.5 once! Granted, they usually beat the previous year, but I like fading recency bias here.
Women’s 2019 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – To Win
Miki Sudo -1200.
They’re* calling her the female Kobayashi! She’s too dominant not to take even at -1200.
*they’re = me.
Women’s Winner of Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – Total
Give me O38.5 (+100).
Miki Sudo has eaten 38.5 or higher in two out of the last three years. She’s coming off a down year of 37. Hopefully, she gets hot and breaks 40.
Men’s 2019 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – Will There Be A Recount?
Give me no recount for an easy -400.
Replay is destroying sports.
Men’s 2019 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest – Will There Be An Eat-Off?
I have no idea what an eat off is. But at +750 you know I’m gonna be betting it and rooting for it.
