Are You Surprised People Place Bets on Eating Competitions?


Competitive eaters have been competing in Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest since 1916 for the ultimate Mustard Yellow Belt Prize. Although it's a popular televised event that is tradition, I was initially surprised to learn that online sports gambling sites take bets for the competition.

The Fourth makes me think of barbecue, friends, and fireworks, not competitive eating odds! Are you surprised that there were bets placed on pros like Kobayashi and Joey Chestnut, or is it no different than gambling on another sport?
