The official 2013 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating contest thread

Postby JS© on Thu Jul 04, 2013 10:53 am

Live on ESPN2 at 12 Eastern

Joey Chestnut is the odds-on favorite to win his 7th mustard belt at 1-10 odds. You would have to bet 1000 dollars to win $100. If you bet on the field, 100 will win you 700.

Other prop bets include:
- Will Chestnut go over or under the line of 64.5? $125 will win you $100

- Chestnut's margin of victory. Last year, he was 16 dogs ahead of second place Eater X. This year's line? 11.5 dogs. 110 dollars will win you 100 on this one.

- Total hot dog and buns consumed by the top three: Line is at 169.5 HDB. No line mentioned, so I'm assuming an even money bet.

I think the Over of 64.5 is a no brainer.

I'm saying under, but not by much. 62.5

Margin of victory: I'll go with 12

The big 3? That's an under. 157.5 (62.5-50-44.5)

Black Widow is tough. I'm still going with Chestnut, but taking the overs.

One woman still had pieces of hot dog bun on her forehead during the interview.

144 hooters wings is ridiculous. That's 800 calories per 5 wings....or 23040 calories.

and Stoney is way off the pace. Chestnut is walking away with this one, now up by 10 dogs with 3 minutes left.

Total consumed was Chestnut (69) + Stonie (51) + Eater X (50) = 170

The fix was in the entire time. Thats why Chestnut powered through that last dog in the last 5 seconds. :pop:
