Jan 30: Scottish Junior Football 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 leads the way with winnings of £186.39 to Paul’s £14.44.
Last week both trebles were beaten but Paul was unlucky with Darvel stunning Troon in the Scottish Cup.
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: 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.
