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.

Rossvale v Stonehaven draw
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.
