This would be Chestnut's eighth straight win in the gobbling competition, and he's the only competitor favored to win, with DraftKings putting him at -4000 (bet $4,000 to win $100). History also favors Chestnut, who's taken 15 out of 16 Mustard Belts.
Only once was Jaws defeated, when Matt Stonie ate 62 hot dogs to Chestnut's 60. In total, though, Chestnut's downed 1,152 hot dogs across his competition appearances, and I don't see any of us posting those kind of numbers to compete.
In the first competition, a very close race, Miki Sudo won with 39 and 1/2 hot dogs. She was listed as a -5000 favorite.
The forecast for Coney Island today calls for partly sunny weather at 83 degrees Fahrenheit, with humidity expected to reach 75 percent.
