Created by Anth Rain Cricket Advisor is provided as part of the Betfan stable of tipster services. The creator claims that it takes advantage of mistakes bookies make.
What is the product?
Cricket Advisor is a sports betting tipster service specialises in providing selections for a number of different cricket games. The service is heavily steeped in creator Anth Raine’s time spent working at a bookmakers as a manger where he claims to have found that the oddsmen made frequent mistakes in cricket. Cricket Advisor has been operational for a little under a year during which time selections have been rather here and there, namely down to the fact that cricket isn’t the kind of sport that is played daily. Anth Raine looks at a number of different bet types for Cricket Advisor covering obvious things such as the winner to bets on the top batsman or which team will get the most sixes in a game. The staking system for Cricket Advisor is rather varied with bets ranging from 1 all the way up to 5 points at a time. Unfortunately Anth Raine doesn’t discuss the selection process in detail. As previously mentioned, the service does draw on alleged mistakes made by oddsmen however the only other “evidence” is that Anth Raine spent a year learning everything that he could about cricket before he started betting. What this leaves Cricket Advisor with is a story that unfortunately lacks substance or any real show of knowledge, a fact evidenced in the results where Cricket Advisor has 4 losses in 10 months.
What is the investment vs. the rate of return?
Cricket Advisor is subscription based and is available on a monthly or quarterly offering with these options coming in at £37 and £74 respectively. Both of these options also give you a one month trial period for your first month at the significantly reduced cost of £9.97. As is typical with Betfan products there isn’t a money back guarantee in place however they do review requests. In terms of income, Cricket Advisor has performed far below the standards I would expect for a paid service with just 41.35 points of profit over 10 months. This works out a very paltry £40 per month using £10 stakes.
Does the product provide value for money?
Personally I don’t believe that Cricket Advisor has made nearly enough money to be considered value for money.
The results for Cricket Advisor speak for themselves, however not even they paint a full picture. Consider that of the 41.35 points of profit was a 20/1 long shot that came in and you can’t help but feel even this overall result is possibly down to luck as much as anything else. The problem is that it simply isn’t an attractive investment. Having taken a random month, and presuming 1 point bets at £10 stakes, you would be investing £220 per month, for 10 months for a return of about £40 after you’ve paid your subscription costs. The fact is that there are much better options available if you want to use a tipster service and I would personally give Cricket Advisor a very wide berth.
