Welcome to our Football Advisor review - A tips service offering 10-20 football bets per week for leagues around the world.

Pros

  • Analysis with each selection
  • Bets received well in advance of events
  • Transparent results
  • Impressive long-term results
  • Profit guarantee

Cons

  • Failed to make a profit over the last 10 months
  • High membership costs

After three months reviewing the Football Advisor service, we have failed to make a profit using the advised stakes at the available odds, but our bank has been left almost intact with just a small loss of 1.34 points overall.

Using level stakes the service would have made a profit of 0.98 points, so they have managed to break even over the three month trial, but what does the long-term picture look like?

Well the results that we downloaded from the Football Advisor site show that since the start of 2016 there has been a loss of 11.84 points.

In 2014 there was a profit of 162.73 points and in 2015 they banked a further 104.03 points. In total the service has made 254.93 points profit, but there’s no hiding the fact that it’s been a struggle over the last 10 months.

The service offers a Profit Guarantee, so if they don't deliver a profit during your membership period, they will extend your membership free of charge.


Summary

We feel that given the impressive long term record that the service holds and managing to break even during our review, a neutral rating is fair.

It has been a tricky time of year for the review, with the winter leagues just starting up and pesky international breaks interfering with league fixtures. It would be worth keeping an eye on the service over the coming months to see whether they can get back to their winning ways.

The results are frequently updated on the website so there is the option of seeing how things have been going before jumping in the deep end.


Football Advisor Review: Update Two

13th October 2016

We’ve been reviewing Football Advisor for two months now and it is time for an update. It’s been a poor month with some unfortunate results and losing runs.

We finished the month with a loss of 9.53 points and an ROI of -12.6% at the available odds and advised stakes. At level 1pt stakes we recorded a loss of 12.61 points.

The service lost 7.23 points in one day on an unfortunate Saturday and the tips for the Europa League performed poorly, losing us around 4 points.

On a few occasions we have been advised to bet on a match odds result with a 2nd bet on the handicap market for the same team. This has the potential for a good profit if the match goes the right way, but if it doesn’t the losses soon mount up, which is what has happened this month.

Overall we have only lost 4.65 points from our starting bank since the start of the review, so there’s no major damage done and plenty of time to recover.

Football Advisor Review: Update One

13th September 2016

We have reached the end of month one of our review of the Football Advisor service and it’s been a promising start. So far we have made a profit of 4.88 points and an ROI of 7.6% using the advised stakes at the odds that we were able to obtain.

We were able to get better odds than the ones advised most of the time, so we made 0.53 points extra profit in comparison.

It was a poor start to the month with just 1 winning bet out of 10, but the profit started to climb back up throughout the month before reaching a peak of 5.58 points at the end.

Interestingly, if we had used level 1 point stakes we would have made a profit of 8.32 points with an ROI of 15.7%. We’ll continue to monitor results using flat stakes for the rest of the review so that we can compare the two.

Football Advisor Review: Introduction

16th August 2016

Football Advisor is a betting service run by Jon Roberts that offers tips throughout the week covering major football/soccer leagues worldwide. The service has been running since June 2014 and has made impressive profits of 162.73pts in 2014 and 104.03pts in 2015.

All past results are available to download on the website, along with tons of statistics and graphs. These can also be filtered however you want, for example by market or league. It is always good to see a service that is so transparent with results.

The results for 2016 have been updated up until May and are showing a small loss of -0.59pts after two bad months in Feb/March. April/May were both profitable, so hopefully things are back on the up.

Overall the service has achieved a huge all-time ROI of 26% and a strike rate of 38%.

The service covers a variety of football markets and bet types, including Match Odds, Asian Handicaps, Accumulators, BTTS, Over/Under Goals and more.

There is also a beginner’s guide to Asian Handicaps for those new to these type of bets.

The selections are available in the “Member’s Area” of the website, but they are also emailed out to your inbox. In the Member’s Area there is a set time to advise when the next selections will be posted.

The advice/tips update starts with a summary of the previous day’s bets, followed by in-depth analysis of the upcoming selections.

The tips are then posted underneath with the advised odds and stakes.

Example of advice received from the Football Advisor:

– Rio Ave v Porto

• Porto finished a ‘disappointing’ third last season and have not lifted the championship since 2012-13
• Rio Ave finished 7th in the 18 team league
• Porto won 64.7% of their away games last season
• Their average away odds were priced at 1.60
• Porto won this fixture 3-1 in each of the last two seasons
• Porto have won 4 of the last 5 between them home and away

We have Porto priced at 1.55 to win this. So William Hill’s 1.70 is clear bit of value

1.75u – Porto win at 1.70 with WH (Portugal / Rio Ave)

Pricing
  • £97 for 28 days
  • £197 for 3 months
  • £388 for 6 months

The prices are substantially higher than the average tips services that we have reviewed. However, they do offer a unique “Profit Guarantee” structure.

For example, if you sign up to a 6 month membership and don’t make a profit during that time, the next 6 months membership is extended free of charge.


A straight-forward bank of 100 points is advised, which is our standard size anyway. We will be using £10 per point, which should cover the membership fees if the service can achieve anywhere near the level of profit as the previous two years.

We’ll be back with an update of our results at the advised and available odds next month.

Pros

  • Analysis with each selection
  • Bets received well in advance of events
  • Transparent results
  • Impressive long-term results
  • Profit guarantee

Cons

  • Failed to make a profit over the last 10 months
  • High membership costs
