Joey Chestnut Is Playing Hurt

In the days leading up to the July 4 hot dog eating contest, Chestnut has been walking around town wearing a boot on his right foot and utilizing crutches. He has suffered a tendon injury.

Chestnut was quick to point out that he doesn’t eat with his foot. While that’s true, he does stand while powering down all of those weiners. Might the injured foot inhibit his ability to stand for the entire 10 minutes of the competition?

The king of competitive eating is also grieving the loss of his mother. Could these combination of factors make Chestnut ripe for an upset, something that’s happened just once in the past 15 years? Matt Stonie beat him in 2015.

That seems unlikely. Chestnut won last year’s event by a 26 hot-dog margin. He’d need to hit a horrific slump to be toppled from the title. That being the case, betting Chestnut at -3000 simply isn’t worth it.

Mom Miki Making Comeback

The women’s competition is offering a little bit more betting intrigue. Miki Sudo had won every event since 2014. However, she sat out last year because she was pregnant.

The new mom is coming back to regain her crown this year. Sudo doesn’t appear to have lost any bite from her game. She easily won egg roll and donut hole eating titles already this year, consuming close to double the second-place finisher in each event.

I know y’all wanna see what @joeyjaws is going to do this year. It will be a show for sure.

BUT I’m super excited for the Miki Sudo – Michelle Lesco showdown in the female competition! #MikiFor50 ?#WomenInSports #SupportWomenInSports @eatingcontest

— Emily Van Buskirk (@Emilnem) July 1, 2022

Michelle Lesco won last year in Sudo’s absence. Her winning total, though, was a paltry 30.75 hot dogs. Sudo consumed 48.5 weiners and buns in her 2020 triumph. Again, though, as is the case with Chestnut, betting Sudo at -1800 doesn’t present a reward worth the risk.

Total Plays Will Rule The Day

Chestnut, 38, frankly admits that his days of dominating the frankfurter-eating fraternity are nearing an end. That being said, he’s driven to try and break his world record for the third year in succession. He at 75 hot dogs in 2020 and 76 last year.

Question for y’all…….

Usain Bolt vs Joey Chestnut 100 meter dash.

Both have to eat a hot dog and finish before they start running.

Who wins?

— Hunter Renfrow (@renfrowhunter) July 2, 2022

Chestnut has established as his objective to get to 80 hot dogs in 10 minutes. He’s someone who’s proven to possess the ability to back up his boasts. Play the over on the winning total of 74.5 hot dogs.

Sudo, on the other hand, isn’t downing dogs with similar authority. While the 48 total in 2020 was impressive, she’s averaging 38 hot dogs per year during her title runs. Sudo has gone under the set total of 44.5 hot dogs in six of her seven wins.

Picks: Men over 74.5 hot dogs (-130); Women under 44.5 hot dogs (-150).
