A true story of money, sex, glamour and gambling.
When Beth Raymer arrived in Las Vegas, her dreams didn't extend beyond getting herself a job as a cocktail waitress at a casino on the strip. And then she met Dink, one of the biggest gamblers in town, and found herself seduced by the adrenalin-fuelled, high risk, high reward world of professional sports betting and the obsessive, funny, rule-breaking bookies that run the show.
Lay the Favourite gives a gripping glimpse into a high stakes underworld where the difference between winning big and losing everything you have comes down
