Regarded as the world’s most famous hot dog eating contest, Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest is held annually on July 4 in Coney Island, New York. Last year, over 40,000 spectators attended the event and an over 1.5 million viewers watched the contest live on ESPN.

This year, oddsmakers from online sports book Bodog have made Joey Chestnut the clear favorite to win at –400 on the money line, while the Field (which consists of any other eater) is +250. For the prop, “Who will eat more hot dogs?” Chestnut is –9.5 (-105) against the Field, which is +9.5 with –135 juice.

For the total number of hot dogs eaten by Chestnut, Bodog lists an over/under of 60.5, with juice of –120 on both the over and the under. Last year, Chestnut successfully defended his title for the fourth year in a row by consuming 54 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes.

Last year also marked one of the stranger incidents in the history of the event, as Takeru Kobayashi was arrested for crashing the stage. He had previously announced that he would not compete in the event due to a labor impasse with Major League Eating over the ability to compete in contests not sanctioned by MLE. But he showed up to the 2010 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating contest sporting a black T-shirt that red “Free Kobi.” After the competition had ended, he slipped up the stage stairs and crashed the stage.

That resulted in Kobayashi being handcuffed by police. He as charged with resisting arrest, trespassing and obstructing governmental administration. He spent the rest of the day in jail awaiting an appearance in Brooklyn Criminal Court, although the charges against him were dismissed on August 5.

This year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest doesn’t figure to be as dramatic as it was last year, although you can never tell. Maybe Kobayashi has plans to crash the party once again.
