Dec 5: Scottish Junior Football Tips

EVERY Saturday William Hill‘s Owen Scott and McBookie‘s Paul Petrie do battle in the junior football challenge.
The dynamic duo will be putting up trebles every weekend and Owen has the bragging rights after four wins this season. A single on Bonnyrigg at Kelty earned him £26 to take his winnings to £146.39 with Paul still to get off the mark.
Owen’s other two matches were off and at this time of year picking games that are on is tougher than predicting results.
For those who don’t know anything about junior football the level of the top clubs is equivalent or in some cases better than Scottish League 2 outfits and we can gauge that easier now with the champions of the three regions – North, East and West – qualifying to play in the William Hill Scottish Cup along with the Junior Cup winners.
The term “junior” has nothing to do with players’ ages and it often confuses people outside Scotland. Some of the top clubs such as Auchinleck, Hurlford, Irvine Meadow and Linlithgow pay bigger wages than most League 1 and League 2 teams and therefore attract players who could be plying their trade at a higher level.
McBookie list all games online and take bets on every junior match while William Hill only take bets in shops.
Here are this weekend’s tips from Owen and Paul and once again they could be weather-hit.

Owen writes: Another winner for me last week albeit only one team due to the other two matches being postponed but it’s enough for a profit for so I’ll take it.

The weather could once again play a major part on which games will take place and for my first selection I’m taking Troon at 4-5 away to Petershill on the Glasgow side’s plastic pitch.

Troon seem to be hitting some of the form that was expected of them this season and I believe they can leave Petershill with all three Super League Premier points.

My next selection is Newtongrange at 10-11 away to Fauldhouse. Newtongrange are having a difficult season compared to last time but on their day are still a difficult team to play against and this weekend they can beat Fauldhouse.

Auchinleck (1-2) at home to Pollok completes the treble. The Ayrshire side are the team to beat once again in the Super League and I reckon they can dispose of their Glasgow rivals. A win for Talbot would see them sit a point behind leaders Pollok and still have five games in hand.

Paul writes: First up in the West Region I am backing Troon at 19-20 to beat Petershill. Troon were well supported in the eachway market at the start of the season and there is every chance they can secure a top-three finish. Their victory over Bo’ness in the Scottish Cup a few weeks ago was impressive and if they can put in a similar performance on Saturday they should pick up all three points.

In the East Region I am going for Dundee Violet to beat Blairgowrie at 10-11. Violet aren’t having the best of seasons in the league but have picked up form in recent weeks, with just one defeat in their last six league games. Too many draws has been their main problem though and this game gives them a chance to pick up a victory against a team from the lower division.

In the North I am backing Hermes at 4-9 to beat Inverness. I was impressed with their Scottish Cup win over Coupar Angus last weekend and after losing their last two league games they can get their title challenge back on track.
