OWEN SCOTT and Paul Petrie were let down by the same teams last week – Owen backed Arthurlie to beat Irvine Meadow and Paul was on the Ayrshire men and of course it ended all square with Lie winning on penalties.
In the season-long standings McBookie.com man Petrie has won £286.91 to £10 stakes while William Hill’s Owen is on £72.25 and remember he’s chasing a big win to catch his rival. Here are Saturday’s tips from the duo as we count down to the end of the season.
Owen writes: “One more week before its the Cup Final and I really need to get a win or its a scorecast for me next week.
I’m starting off with the West of Scotland Cup Final and I’m on the Ayrshire side Kilwinning Rangers at 11-5 to cause an upset and beat Premier Division Arthurlie.
The Buffs have had an excellent season and I feel this match will cap it off and Arthurlie might even have one ear on the crucial league match taking elsewhere today as if the result goes against them they will be in the promotion/relegation play-off.
Dundee North End (11-10) have two games left to try and stay in the East Premier League and need maximum points from those games to do so. I reckon they will kick it off with a win at home to a Dundonald side with nothing to play for.
To complete the treble I’m taking in the North Region Final which will take place on Sunday. I reckon Dyce are a big price for this match against champions Hermes but I’m going to sit on the fence go draw at 10-3.”

Paul writes: “First up I am backing Hermes to beat Dyce in the North Regional Cup Final tomorrow at 8-15. This will complete the league and cup double and there is no doubt they have been the best team in the region this year.
“I have heard a few players might be leaving so this gives them a great opportunity to go out on a high.
“In the West I am taking Blantyre at 8-11 to wrap up the league title when they face Wishaw. They need two points from their last two games and while this wont be an easy fixture I suspect they will want to get the job done as quickly as possible.
“Finally, in the East I am going for a draw in the Carnoustie v Linlthgow game at 4-1. My only fear is the Gowfers might rest players in the hope they have a better chance of picking up three points against Camelon in midweek which will take them out of the play-off spot. It is a meaningless game for Rose but with their quality Carnoustie might still struggle to break them down meaning the draw is a value bet.”
