On the 72.5 line, bettors can take the under and enjoy a nice payout when betting on the entertainment props. However, for the 73.5 line, bettors should be also taking the under as well, as it is the favorite for a reason.

Other Hot Dog Contest Props

There are two other prop bets on the contests as well. There is one asking if there will be a recount needed with the odds in favor of there not being one with -1200 odds while the odds of there being one are at +600.

The second prop is if there will be an eat off. The odds of there not being an eat off are heavily favored as well with -5000 odds while the odds for an eat off are at +1000.

Both Joey Chestnut and Miki Sudo have separated themselves far from the competition.

Chestnut has won the last four contests by 10 or more hot dogs in each of his wins. Sudo has won the contest by five or more hot dogs in three of her last four wins.

As for the recount, it is more common. There have been recounts in the past two hot dog eating contests which have bumped up both of Chestnuts numbers.

If bettors want to take the risk, betting in favor of a recount could help their pockets grow.
