Cricket Advisor – Final Review
Well it has been a longer than usual trial period for the Cricket Advisor, with a low volume of bets it took 4 months to get to the minimum 100 bets required to judge the service.
Unfortunately, as you can see from the results above, it hasn’t been a very successful trial and has finished 18 points down in the end.
That wasn’t a disaster, as it represented a loss of just 18% of the advised 100 point bank, so we have certainly had worse trials.
But on the other hand, looking back at the past results published on the website, the Cricket Advisor has been a long-term decline since September 2014, when he peaked at 45 points profit, down to his current level of -9 points.
So it is tough to recommend any service that hasn’t made a profit in over a year and is actually down over its lifespan.
Here are the results for the trial in graph format:
Ease of use: Good – tips are sent out well in advance of the events and there are a variety of bookmakers you can use, or Betfair.
Availability of prices: Good – we found the prices were generally available and there was no real downward pressure on prices after the tips were released. Tips are generally in markets with good liquidity such as international matches, IPL and T20/county matches, which generally have very strong liquidity on Betfair too.
Strike rate: The strike rate for the trial was 36%, which in itself sounds good but in reality needs to be a little higher to make a profit at the odds they are tipping at.
Advised Betting Bank: The bank advised for the trial was 100 points, which seems more than adequate and was never in danger of being lost during the trial.
Subscription costs: The subscription costs are quite high given the results, at £37 per month = VAT or £74 + VAT per quarter.
OVERALL VERDICT: FAILED
Sadly there are very few good cricket tipsters out there and this one didn’t quite produce the results we were hoping for.
The trial wasn’t a complete disaster by any means though and our bank ended up 18% down over the course of the trial.
Taken in the context of the longer-term results however, which show no profit has been made over the last year means the only verdict we can give this is a failed one and 2.5 stars overall.
So our search for a winning cricket tipster goes on…
