Mar 19: Junior Football Betting Tips

MRF_SPFL_Hibs_Ball
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 £206.48 to Paul’s £95.54. Last week both tackled the Junior Cup quarter-finals and it was Owen who was closest with two winners at evens and a draw at Kilwinning – so they replay at Camelon today.
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, Pollok, Bo’ness 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: I predicted  four home wins in the Junior Cup quarter-finals last weekend and there were three.

Unfortunately the one that wasn’t beat my treble with Kilwinning being held 3-3 at home to Camelon. I’m back on Rangers to win in Saturday’s replay and they are 6-4.

Troon (13-10) are on a fantastic run in the West Super League Premier and can continue a good run against a Pollok side who could be now concentrating on the Scottish Cup after reaching the semi-finals.

Complete the treble with Shotts at 10-11 at home to Ardrossan in the First Division.

Paul writes: First up I am backing Bonnyrigg at 19-20 to beat Bo’ness in the East Region. Rose were backed at 25-1 to win the title so it’s going to be a terrible result for us and if they can pick up three points in this game it might just seal our fate.

They have been impressive in all the big league games this season and haven’t looked nervous at all. Bo’ness have dropped right out of the title betting so it really is a must-win game for them if they are going to win the league.

In the North Region I am backing Banks o’ Dee to beat Hermes at 4-6. Banks o’ Dee are well clear at the top of the table but have played more games than their rivals. However, this gives them a great chance to pull further clear and make them difficult to catch. Hermes had a midweek game to contend with as well so the home side should be more fresh.

Finally, I am backing Shettleston to beat Arthurlie at 23-20. By all accounts Arthurlie were unlucky in their Scottish Cup defeat last week but they struggled to get past Irvine Meadow a couple of weeks ago. Shettleston were poor last time out against Troon but have been playing decent stuff before that and can make home advantage count.

    How are we supposed to back these teams I’ve tried all online bookmakers and nobody has bets for the leagues that low
