Chestnut is a hot dog eating machine, literally. Any betting market being +1000 for “the field” against one competitor is absurd, but in this case it is almost a lock that he wins. The last time Chestnut lost was in 2015, eating 60 hot dogs to Matt Stonie’s 62. Since then, Chestnut has eaten 70, 72, 74, 71, and 75 hot dogs.
For the women’s contest, Michelle Lasco is the heavy favorite as well. Here’s a look at the odds for that contest as well, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
