Halloween Best Bet

Joey Chestnut -110

Joey Chestnut is the eating G.O.A.T. with how dominant he has been over the last decade in Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest. Now, he is the favorite to win the MLE Halloween candy eating event. It’s hard not to back Chestnut as it feels like you are burning money if you don’t take him. So, we are going to back him.

What is interesting is Matt Stonie has the fifth-highest odds in the event. Stonie has always been great competition for Chestnut in the hot dog eating contest, so he might be someone to take in the DraftKings pool or even sprinkle some money on him to win the contest +1400 odds.

Regardless, it’s Chestnut or goes home.

I fell in love with handicapping right away. Sports betting is a lot more enjoyable when going through advanced data to find an edge on a Vegas line. Situational plays is a focus of mine and study stats and data analytics to go along with certain situations to make myself a more well rounded capper. College football and college basketball are my favorite to bet.
