We do everything big in the US, and that includes the sport of Competitive Eating where scores will gather at Coney Island this Fourth of July in an effort to stuff about 70 wet Nathan’s hot dogs down their trained throats—with the clock ticking of course—in an effort to win The Mustard Belt.

<h2 style="font-style:italic">Tuesday, July 4, 2017</h2><h2 style="text-align:center">Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest · Brooklyn, NY · ESPN, 12 pm ET/9 am PT</h2><p>You’re saying you bet on Hot Dog eating? Well there’s nothing wrong with that. George Washington may have been a gambler, fellow President Warren is said to have gambled away a set of White House china and we all know that Fred Flintstone liked to bet, bet, bet, bet, bet. So wagering on a man named Chestnut to try to eat over 70 strips of animal preservatives and buns on a pier on a Tuesday afternoon isn’t that big a thing. Well, come to think of it, maybe it is a bit on the freaky side...</p><p>On Tuesday, in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, the <a href="https://nathansfamous.com/promos-and-fanfare/hot-dog-eating-contest/" rel="nofollow" title="Nathan's Hot Dogs">Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest</a> will be held on the corner of Surf and Stillwell Avenues in the Coney Island neighborhood at the site of the original Nathan’s restaurant.</p><p>Defending Men’s Champion Joey “Jaws” Chestnut (70 in 2016) has W9 of the L10 years with Matt “Megatoad” Stonie (2015) the lone other winner in the Men’s division while Miki Sudo has W3 on the Women’s side and may be on the verge of creating her own little Nathan’s dynasty, ala Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas who won the pink belt the first three years in the Women’s competition (2011 to 2013), woofing down 40 hot dogs, a Women's record in this competition of 45 (in 2012) and then 36¾ in 2013 in the 10-minute “eating” period. This year the two will go head-to-head again with defending champ Sudo a prohibitive -435 favorite (Field +325, 5Dimes) with Thomas +360 to win this year (Field -495, 5Dimes). Offshore sportsbook 5Dimes has the Total (Over/Under) of hot dogs eaten by Sudo at 38½u -145 (Over +105) with Thomas’s Total currently (Sunday) at 35½. Sudo and Thomas combined vs. “The Field” is a pricey with <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds" title="Live Betting Odds for Most Sports">betting odds</a> at -7500 (Field +2500, 5Dimes) while the Women’s Winner Total can be found at 37½o -175 (Under +135, 5Dimes); 38½u -115 (Over -115, 5Dimes); 39½u -185 (Over +145, 5Dimes); and, at 41½u -320 (Over +240, 5Dimes). Last year in 2016, Sudo ate 38½ after eating 38 hot dogs in 2015 and 34 in 2014 en route to victory, so expect the 32-year-old—who entered Competitive Eating in 2013 in a Ph?-eating contest—to look to top that mark and aim for 40 this time, meaning the oddsmakers look spot on with their Women’s Total.</p><p style="text-align:left"> You can "lay" the 2/12 hot dog spread for your <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/" title="Free Picks Home Page">sports picks</a> with the 3-time defending Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Women’s champ and chalk Sodu (-2½ -145, 5Dimes), or just take her head-to-head on the moneyline against Thomas (Sodu is -460, Thomas +335).</p><h3 style="text-align:center">Here are all of the Men’s markets available for <a
