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 £14.44.
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.
And Linlithgow proved their ability this season with a run to the last 16 of the senior Scottish Cup where they lost 4-2 at Ross County.
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 – and you can't win on both because they taken opposite views on the big East v West Scottish Cup tie between Bonnyrigg and Pollok.

Owen writes: Another blank weekend as the weather put paid to my treble last week.

This weekend sees the Scottish Junior Cup take centre stage and all the cash has been for East Super League leaders Bonnyrigg to win the trophy.  They face a tough tie against West leaders Pollok this week with a quarter-final spot at stake.

I'm going to stick with the Junior Cup this week as I aim for another winning treble.

My first selection is Kelty Hearts at 8-13 at Camelon. Kelty are going well in the league once again and have already beaten Camelon this season so I reckon they will win this and book their place in the last eight.

Bonnyrigg (5-6) have been the best-backed team this season apart from favourites Auchinleck to win the trophy and I reckon the bets will still be going after this weekend as I expect them to beat Pollok with home advantage.

Finally to complete my treble I'm once again going to oppose Petershill which will be music to their fans ears as I have done so in the last two rounds of the cup.  They travel to Beith (7-5) this time and it will be a tough tie but I reckon the home side will progress.

Paul writes: It is the last 16 of the Junior Scottish Cup this weekend so I am going to concentrate on those ties for my selections.

First up I am backing Kelty Hearts at 8-13 to beat Camelon. Kelty have added two new signings in recent weeks to suggest they mean business. David Banjo and Archie Campbell have both played senior and should fit into the squad without any issues. Banjo hit a debut goal last weekend and I suspect the club are going all out to win the big one.

Next I am taking a punt on Pollok at 85-40 to beat Bonnyrigg. Both teams are sitting at the top of their respective Super Leagues and this is all set to be a cracking tie.

Pollok have played more games in the West so perhaps their position is a bit deceiving but they are a difficult team to break down and could just spring a surprise at a decent price.

Finally, I am adding Auchinleck to beat Carnoustie at 1-3. It is obviously a short price but I just can’t see them slipping up. The Gowfers' pitch is one of the best in the junior game and will be right up Talbot’s street.

We have first-scorer markets for five of the games and still running our competition to win hospitality to the Final. Check out the site for full details.
