Owen writes: My good start to the new year definitely didn’t continue as two of my teams were hammered last week so I’m hoping to get back on track this week.
I’m starting with Cumbernauld at 10-11 at home to Ardrossan in the West First Division. Cumbernauld beat Ardrossan in the Cup a few weeks ago and I expect them to do the same.
Linlithgow at 10-11 away to Irvine Meadow in the Scottish Junior Cup is my next pick. After getting a draw last week at home Rose followed up with a marathon match in midweek against Forfar in the senior Scottish Cup.
They won after extra time and while many will expect Meadow to come good I reckon the adrenaline and return of a few players including skipper Mark Tyrrell will see the favourites through.
Finally I’m on Petershill at 1-1 to win away to Shettleston. The Peasies are on a bit of a run winning their last three matches and proved me wrong last week when I went against them so I reckon they can get all three points today.

Paul writes: First up in the West Region I am backing Largs to beat Yoker at 4-5. Largs are still top of the table but have dropped back to third favourites after a disappointing start to 2016. They need to get back to winning ways if they are serious title contenders. They beat Yoker back in November and this looks a winnable match.
In the East Region I am going for Edinburgh Utd to beat Dundee Violet at 11-5. Edinburgh have played five games more than Violet which is why they are ahead of them in the league. Violet also had a great result against Jeanfield Swifts last weekend. However, I don’t think there is much between the two teams. That is why I think the value lies with the capital side.
Finally, in the North Region I am backing Banks o’ Dee to beat Culter at 3-4. Dee are the favourites for the league and have managed to pick up two wins in 2016. Culter’s game last week was their first since December 12 and I think the extra game time for Banks o’ Dee will see them being too strong for the home side.
