Other mistake: When DeNiro is discussing a bet on a future (7 weeks away) game between the Eagles and Cowboys, DeNiro points out that the Eagles are favored by 1.5 points. In fact, betting lines are not set on games until the previous week's games are played, because there may be a major injury which would affect the line. As a bookmaker, DeNiro would certainly know this. And bookmakers are rarely fans of teams, and it would be unusual for a bookie to be such a rabid fan as DeNiro is in the movie.
