Ex-private dancer Beth aspires to be a Las Vegas cocktail waitress, when she falls in with Dink, a sports gambler. Sparks fly as she proves to be something of a gambling prodigy--much to the ire of Dink's wife, Tulip.
Dink wears a t-shirt for the Little Brown Jug, a harness race for standardbreds held each year at the Delaware County Fair in Delaware, Ohio. Ohio State athletics are featured prominently several times, and Beth references a period of time she spent in Ohio.
...you don't take the favorite, you lay the favorite.
During the televised basketball game in the closing minutes of the film, the storyline is that the game is down to no time left on the clock, and the NJ player, Reedmore, has the chance to make 2 foul shots to beat LA. When the baseline camera focuses on the player's face, though, the time clock over the hoop at the other end of the court is visible, and the clock plainly reads 6:40 left in the game.
