The Football Guru Review – Does It Make Money?

I have been testing out the betting gods tipster The Football Guru since the 8th of February. A total of 549 bets have be sent in this time. This is a tipster service from betting gods which focuses unsurprisingly on football.

The Football Guru focuses on the top European leagues along with English leagues. The service tips in many secondary markets alongside the more popular match odds markets.

Updated 29/05/2018

Since the original review the Football Guru has made a few changes and has continued to make impressive profits. In the original Football Guru review it was noted that they were including the Bet365 in-play offer. On a positive note this is no longer the case.

The last Bet365 offer included in results was in April 2017.

I have continued to follow the Football Guru service after the initial review as it was a service that showed promise.

The Football Guru is a service that requires a long term approach but its overall results speak for themselves.

The Football Guru Review

With the positive changes made to the service and its consistent profits over a two year period. I am increasing The Football Guru to a recommended rating.

Original Football Guru Review

Lets take a look at the most important aspect of any review, the results. Results are recorded using £10 per point with the recommended 100 point betting bank.

Key Stats

Bets 549
Total Staked £9,557.40
P/L £480.00
ROI 5%

Results have ended on a good note with a decent profit being made. You can see from the graph above however that this is a fairly volatile service. There are some quite large swings in the profit and loss graph.  

After a profitable start with the service reaching +£371 after 260 bets. It a hit a low of -£268 by 453 bets before sharply recovering and going on to record a profit of £480 by the end of the trial.

The Football Guru advises a lot of accumulator bets. Ranging from standard trebles or fourfolds to goliath bets. You can see that this creates a lot of spikes in the profit and loss column.

I have never been a fan of high variance betting so I also recorded results without any of the high selection accumulators. Doubles were the largest combination bet included.

Although you still see the same graph shape as the initial one, it didn’t suffer from as large a drawdown. Its a much smoother looking graph.

Also removing any selections above a double resulted in increased profits, as a total of £539 was made. It does seem that should you want to, you could remove some of the volatility involved in following this service. And the service would continue to be profitable.

My plan is to continue following this service using this method.

The Football Guru Review – Conclusion

I like the Football Guru. It’s a service that I initially had doubts about but its results speak for itself.

The service is well run. Odds are relatively easy to achieve and often you can match or better them with betting exchanges. You receive an email everyday to inform you of the selections. One thing that I feel could be improved is the timing of these emails. Emails are not sent at a specific time so you don’t really know when to expect them. 

It would be good if selections could be sent at specific time frames. Having said that odds don’t get crushed as soon as emails are sent out which is a positive. 

The Football Guru tips at UK orientated bookmakers such as Bet365, William Hill, Betway etc. One bookmaker that seemed to be used very often was Betstars so it is beneficial if you have them available. However you can also follow the majority of his selections with the betting exchanges. For those people that are limited from most bookmakers.

Does The Football Guru Offer Good Value?

In my opinion at £30 a month you get your value for money. The service is a high volume one with an average of 110-130 selections a month being sent out. The in-play part of the service is also a good addition. This is in the form of a chat room where selections are sent out for live games. Normally on a Saturday when there is a busy schedule.

To conclude I will be looking to add the Football Guru to my betting portfolio. If it can continue to provide solid profits. Its relatively easy to follow, has a historic return on investment of 11% over 2000 bets and I have found the odds quoted attainable.

Having looked the Football Guru’s historic results however they do include the Bet365 bet £50 get £50 in play offer. This is the one negative point I should make about this service. As this does boost the stated roi quite a lot.

However if you remove profit made from this offer. Which was £1074 there is still a healthy profit of £2697 since the service started.

You can trial this service yourself for 30 days at the cost of £1. If you are looking for a football service that makes money long term this is one you should consider.

ROI 1.4%

The Football Guru is a high volume service. At the weekend you might get as many as 10 pre match selections. Alongside the pre match selections there is also an in play part of the service. Where you might another 10-15 selections.

This means that you are staking a lot of money and the swings in your profit and loss can be quite high. I have found that the odds given out in emails are quite easy to achieve. Often also the odds given for in play selections can be bettered by using the betting exchanges.

The ROI is very small after the first month. However you really need a large amount of bets before the variance evens out.

Starting Bank

After the first month of results now stands at.

£1066.8

I have enjoyed following this service so far. It is quite unlike any other tipster service that I have followed.

Given the large amount of bets sent out. I should be able to get a large sample size of bets after only a few months. We should be able to get a good indication of how profitable this service is by then.

The next update will be around the 8th of April.
