Jan 23: Scottish Junior Football Betting Tips

EVERY Saturday William Hill‘s Owen Scott and McBookie‘s Paul Petrie do battle in the junior football challenge and their back after a festive break.
The dynamic duo will be putting up trebles every weekend and Owen extended his lead last week with a nice double – his other pick was void. Two even-money shots takes his winnings to £186.39 with Paul is on £14.44.
Last week all games they picked were postponed and they’re sticking with their cup selections which have been rescheduled for this weekend.
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.

Owen writes: It’s the Scottish Junior Cup again this week and match of the day is surely Auchinleck v Cumnock where William Hill have supplied correct scores, half-time/full-time and first-scorer odds for the Ayrshire derby.

I’m going to stick to the Cup to pick my treble but once again it’s a fight against the weather. I’m starting my treble by taking Hill of Beath at 5-4 at home to Petershill. The Peasies have had a couple of really difficult ties against East Super League clubs and have come through them but I reckon this will be a game too far.

Next up I’m taking a draw in the Rossvale v Stonehaven tie at 14-5. Rossvale are doing great in their league but Stonehaven lead the North Super League and I reckon they’ll get another tie to play next week at home.

To complete the treble I’m on Kilwinning at 8-13 to beat Arniston. The Buffs have hit form and I reckon they can win this game with ease.

Paul writes: It is the last 32 of the Scottish Junior Cup again so I am going to stick to that competition for my three selections this weekend.

First up I am backing Troon to beat Darvel at 2-5. Darvel are flying high in the Ayrshire League and there is no doubt they will be well up for this game. However, Troon have had a solid season and will be confident of a decent cup run in the big one.

Next I am going for Kilwinning Rangers to beat Arniston at 8-15. After a terrible start to the season Kilwinning have finally got back on track and more importantly are scoring plenty of goals. A few people have backed them at 50-1 to win the competition and while that might be a step too far they should be too strong for Arniston.

Finally, I am making it a West Region clean sweep by backing Rossvale to beat Stonehaven at 7-10. We have Rossvale as the favourites to win the Central First Division which suggests they are capable of playing at a higher level. While the North Region has improved in recent years I always like to back teams from the West or East when they meet, especially when at home. It should be a close game but hopefully the home side will come out on top.
