The 2021 Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating contest is set for this Sunday afternoon on its traditional date of the Fourth of July. After holding the event at an indoor location in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it moves back to Coney Island once again in 2021.

Joey Chestnut looks to break his record from last year of 75 hot dogs eaten, and looks to be the winner for the 14th time in the last 15 years. He’s a massive -3335 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the rest of the 18-member field combined a +900 underdog.
