    Can Joey Chestnut extend his winning streak to a record eight straight titles in Nathan's Famous 4th of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest? How many hot dogs will the winner eat? Odds and prop bets courtesy of Bovada.lv.



    Nathan's Famous International Hot Dog Eating Contest has been held each July 4th in Coney Island, NY since 1916, the year Nathan Handwerker opened the legendary restaurant. Major League Eating sanctions the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Circuit and ensures the contests are judged professionally and that safety standards are in place at each event.

    Defending champion Joey Chestnut broke former rival Takeru Kobayashi's record of six straight wins by capturing his seventh title in the 2013 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. "Jaws" Chestnut is an overwhelming favorite to extend his record to eight straight titles in 2014. At 1/12 odds, one would have to be 92.3%+ confident Chestnut will win to justify a wager.

    Chestnut broke his own hot dog eating record of 68 hot dogs by consuming 69 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes in last year's contest. The over/under for total hot dogs eaten by the winner last year was 63.5. After Chestnut demonstrated that he could top 68 hot dogs for a second year in a row, the over/under for this year's contest has been set at 67.5 hot dogs.

    Hot dogs, prop bets, and the Fourth of July, nothing could be more American.

    • Matt Stonie: 9/1

    05/10/2017 Highlight: The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
