The Football Guru Review: Betting Tips Service

Written by Laura Turner

The Football Guru Review

The Football Guru is a tips service which claims to have had three successful years tipping over at Betting Gods.

They have reported a profit of £5,593.82 to £10 stakes at an ROI of 6.4% to date and there is a full history of results to view starting from 2015.

The service is now offered through the Tipping Gurus platform and covers worldwide football leagues.

The Football Guru seems to focus on the more popular leagues rather than anything too obscure. The markets include Match Odds, Both Teams to Score, handicaps and Over/Under Goals, plus there are occasional accumulators thrown into the mix.

Selections are sent out via email between 10pm and midnight the evening before the matches and they can also be accessed via a private member's area.

We tracked results at the advised odds as well as the actual odds available.

Please feel free to continue reading the full review below, though we recommend checking out some of the betting system reviews which ended in a pass instead. There's a small selection below or you can click here for the full list.

Each Way Value Tips Review: Horse Racing Betting Service
We reviewed Each Way Value Tips for four months and they achieved an impressive 108.69 points profit hitting an ROI of 12.4%. Read our full review here.

Wadster Bet Bots Review: Pay When You Profit Betting Tips
Wadster Bet Bots is a tips service platform with a difference, as rather than paying a monthly subscription for them, you only pay when the tips make a profit.

Month One Results

We had a pretty horrendous start to our Football Guru review, losing almost half of our bank in one month. At the available odds, we recorded a total loss of 71.2 points from 107 bets.

It was going to take some doing to get back on track from here, but hitting a winning accumulator bet would certainly help.

Month Two Results

It was a better month for The Football Guru service in comparison to our first update, but we still only just managed to break even at the available odds. With still just under 71 points to recover, it seemed like a long road ahead.

Month Three Results

It was a positive month for The Football Guru with 19.58 points profit at an ROI of 15.7% at the available odds. Our bank was still down by 34% overall, but a recovery was starting to seem doable. We decided to continue our review to see whether the good results would continue with the new football season ahead.

Month Four Results

Month four was an almost break even month with just a small loss of 1.68 points. Despite the big returns from two winning Super Yankee and Goliath bets, it was disappointing not to finish with an overall profit.

Review Summary

We tracked almost 400 bets over a four month period in our review of The Football Guru, but unfortunately due to a terrible start at the beginning of our trial, we were unable to finish with an overall profit.

Month set us back with a loss of 71.2 points, so we spent the rest of the trial hoping for a dramatic recovery. The service did make some headway following this with two winning months in a row, but it wasn't nearly enough to get back on track.

Overall we finished with a total loss of 53 points which worked out as a 35.3% decrease to our 150 point starting bank.

It's notoriously difficult to make a profit from betting on football, especially top flight leagues that the bookmaker's traders will have put a lot of work into analysing and ensuring that they have the edge.

Based on the results of our trial, sadly this service has to go down as a fail.
