Nathan's Hot Dog Contest

  • Geoffrey Esper has -125 odds to win the 2024 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest held on July 4.
  • Nathan’s banned 16-time champion Joey Chestnut from competing this year due to a conflicting sponsorship with Impossible Foods.
  • Matt Stonie (+1100) is the only competitive eater to beat Chestnut in a hot dog eating contest since 2006.

BROOKLYN, N.Y. – This year’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest won’t hit the same without 16-time champion Joey Chestnut, but there’s still good betting value for the annual Fourth of July eating event. Geoffrey Esper is the legal sports betting favorite to win the 2024 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in a field without eight-time defending champion Chestnut.
