🌭 July 4th Weekend Betting Preview

Euros, Wimbledon and of course, all-you-can-eat hot dogs. What more could you ask for over the next five days? Before you start soaking up the sun, here's the latest on 4th of July weekend's can't-miss action 😎 (3 min read)

What to Watch

Here’s hoping everybody has the pleasure of reading this poolside. 4th of July week/weekend is officially upon us, and that means plenty of relaxation, plenty of fireworks, and plenty of sports to bet on 🤑

  • As unpatriotic as it may be, let’s start off by checking in on the Euros. And first things first, you gotta see this game-clinching save yesterday that sent Turkey to the quarterfinals 👇

Down to just eight teams left, England remains the favorite (+350) to win their first ever European Championship…despite just narrowly escaping elimination the last time they took the field 😬

Euros action resumes on Friday and Saturday with the quarterfinal round; take a look at the matchups ⬇️

  • 6/5 12PM: Spain (-115 to advance) vs. Germany (-105)

  • 6/5 3PM: Portugal (+122) vs. France (-150)

  • 6/6 12PM: England (-172) vs. Switzerland (+140)

  • 6/6 3PM: Netherlands (-375) vs. Turkey (+285)

Next up, let’s stay on that side of the pond but head over to London for some tennis, where the 137th edition of Wimbledon is in the midst of its first couple rounds 🎾

  • We’ve already been treated to one of the biggest upsets you’ll see all year, with the reigning champ on the women’s side going down in her first match 🤯

On the men’s side, the winners of the last two Grand Slam tournaments find themselves neck-and-neck at the top of the odds board once again, and there’s another familiar face right behind them. Take a look at this year’s top contenders (Wimbledon schedule here) 👇

  • Carlos Alcaraz: +220

  • Jannik Sinner: +220

  • Novak Djokovic: +330

  • Hubert Hurkacz: +1600

  • Alexander Zverev: +1900

  • Alex De Minaur: +2600

Back over here on U.S. soil, we’ve got a loaded slate of MLB action going down all week long. But it’s no secret that on the 4th, America’s pastime takes a backseat to another competition, which also features some of the world’s finest athletes. Let’s talk dogs 🌭

  • Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island is back, but this year’s event comes with an unfortunate disclaimer. Joey Chestnut, the 16x champ and world record holder, won’t be participating 😭

An absolute travesty; the 4th just won’t be the same without Chestnut defying the basic laws of human anatomy. But while the GOAT will be sorely missed, his absence does mean that the field is as wide open as its been in a while. Take a look at this year’s favorites 😋

  • Geoffrey Esper: -120

  • James Webb: +200

  • Nick Wehry: +550

  • Patrick Bertoletti: +800

Trivia Question: Since 2007, who is the only person to beat Joey Chestnut in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest?
