Martin Adams is a single man that lives in a small East Texas town. He is an IT professional (information technology) - a computer expert. He works at four different banks by contract - three or four days a week. That is his first passion. His second passion is gambling on college and professional football. He started betting in the early 1980's and has not stopped. Not only did he bet with bookies from his home, but he has been to Las Vegas many times in 20 years. He has bet at sports books in Vegas and played all the casino games. He finally quit going to Las Vegas and just concentrated on betting from his home. Some years he would win and some years he would lose. Martin fully explains the basics of football and betting. On opening day of the professional fooball season one year, he discovered an incredible secret advantage that enabled him to win any pro game he bet on. A secret so powerful, that he could not bet with any of his usual bookies - they would eventually cut off. His only choice was to return to the gambling capitols of the world - Las Vegas and Reno. He would increase his bets to the extent that could make him a multi-millionaire in one season. And that is what he did. What he did not know, that there were the many problems he would face with this choice. He also includes some history of Las Vegas, the dam, and how the 'strip' started. After several weeks, he got on the casino's 'black list', because he always won. Due to the transparency of the Internet, he came to be known as 'the man who never loses'. They could not figure it out. Word got out to casinos all over the state of Nevada. Consequently, he was banned from many casinos. He was accused of cheating and knowing the scores of games in advance (they were getting close). They would throw many roadblocks in his way, but he was able to sidestep them almost every time, due to disguising himself and the help of his friends, who would make his bets.
