  • Goal Profits Rating
  • Rated 4 stars

Welcome to our The Football Formula review - A betting tips service from The Betting Gods site that sends out 45-50 bets per month for worldwide leagues.


  • Very simple to follow with clear emails
  • Able to get the same or close to advised odds
  • Full results available and updated regularly


  • Will need to use stakes higher than £10 to make the profit worthwhile after deducting membership fees

We have reached the end of our review of The Football Formula and our advised 25 point bank has grown to 36.9 points – a profit of 11.9 points. We set our starting bank at £1250 and stakes at £50 per point, which gives us a total profit of £595 at an ROI of 5.5%.

The service is very easy to follow and offers a low risk way to profit from football betting. There’s no fancy staking systems, just 1 point level stakes, and we haven’t had trouble getting similar odds to those advised.

Since the service started in May 2016, it has delivered a profit of 81.62 points with an ROI of 16.9%. The longest winning run is 14 in a row, which we were fortunate enough to witness during the 1st part of our review. The longest losing run is 7 bets.

It is run by tipster Ricardo on the Betting Gods site, so you can be sure of regularly updated & transparent results and excellent customer service.

The service costs £1.00 for the first 30 days and then:

  • £29.95 per month
  • £69.95 per quarter
  • £249.95 for a lifetime membership

Betting Gods also offer a 60 day moneyback guarantee.


The leagues covered have mostly been among the most popular in the world, so it’s interesting that Ricardo has managed to find an edge betting on markets at short odds, that bookies are sure to have put a lot of work into analysing. We don’t know how his system works but it is doing a fine job so far.

Overall it has been a sucessful review for Ricardo and his Football Formula with our bank increasing by a respectable 47.6% over a three month period. Although betting at low prices is never going to give massive profits, it does offer a lower risk method of betting.

At the average odds of 1.61 during our review, we would have liked to see a slightly higher strike rate than 66%, as we are just about breaking even at 62%. To be fair though, the service has achieved an overall strike rate of 72.7% since launching, so hopefully Ricardo can maintain this.

We are happy to award the service with a pass rating and we think it would be useful as part of a balanced portfolio of systems.

The Football Formula Update Two

31st December 2016

Month two of our review of The Football Formula started well and the profit was building nicely, reaching over 6 points for the month. Unfortunately, the service hit a bad run of losing bets towards the end, which set us back again. We finished month two with a small loss of 0.26 points.

Overall, we have still made a profit of 3.58 points, but the ROI has now dropped down to 2.3%. Hopefully the service can get back on track in month three to put us in a better position.

The Football Formula Update One

22nd November 2016

At the end of our first month following The Football Formula tips we have made a profit of 3.84 points with an ROI of 6%. We are using a bank of £1250 divided into the recommended 25 points, so we’ve made a profit of £192 to £50 stakes.

There have been 64 bets so far with 43 winning to give a strike rate of 67.2%. All except 2 of the selections have been at odds less than 2.00, averaging at 1.59.

For the majority of the month we have been playing a kind of “keepy-uppy” after hitting a series of losing bets early on. It’s been difficult to recover the loss with the selections being odds on, as you need a decent run to get back on track.

Towards the end of the month, the service did manage to hit a streak of winning bets to finish with a profit.

There were 11 successive wins up until the end of the 1st review update, but it has carried on afterwards to make it 14 in a row.

The Football Formula Introduction

23rd October 2016

The Football Formula is a new betting service run by tipster Ricardo on the Betting Gods site. It has been running since May 2016 and to date has made a profit of 67.37 points, £673.70 to £10 stakes, with an ROI of 26.84%.

As with all Betting Gods tipsters, the full results are available to download from the website.

The majority of the bets are odds on to win, so we would expect to see a lot of winners and there certainly has been so far, with a high strike rate of 78.7% and a recent winning streak of 14 bets.

The tips are mainly for Over/Under Goals markets and Match Odds, with occasional Draw No Bets and Asian Handicaps.

There are approximately 45-50 bets per month, so around 2 per day, and they are emailed out every day at noon.

A starting bank of 25 points is recommended and stakes are simple flat 1 point for each bet.

The service has three pricing options, £1.00 for 30 days and then either:

  • £29.95 per month
  • £69.95 per quarter
  • £249.95 for a lifetime membership

We will be following the tips over the next three months and will be recording the results for the advised odds and the odds that we were able to get.

It’ll be interesting to see if the service can keep these fantastic results coming, but realistically there might be a correction at some point.

We will report back in a month’s time with our first results.
