PAUL PETRIE of McBookie.com landed the first blow in the juniors tipster contest last week when he picked a treble worth just over evens.
However, a win's a win as he's been telling William Hill rival Owen Scott all week.
Owen's yet to pick a winning treble this season and has set his sights a bit lower this weekend.
His Saturday selections pay 19-5 and he's confident they will move him ahead of his McBookie.com counterpart.
Next week you can post your own treble and compare it Owen and Paul's. And whoever puts up the biggest winning treble to McBookie.com odds will win a £25 free bet on another junior treble with the Scots internet firm. So start studying the form and see if you can pick a winner.
Owen says: I'm out to break my duck after six trebles and six losing lines.
I’m at a crossroads – do I pick a treble that pays less than 2-1 to get off the mark or do I keep looking for value and increase the possibility of another losing week?
If this one loses you can tell me if I should set my sights lower.
I’m heading North and taking Culter who are 2-5 at home to Maud. Culter are unbeaten in 13 matches this season and have a realistic chance of regaining the title they held on to for four years in a row since 2003.
Maud will be on a downer after crashing out the Junior Cup last weekend so Culter should be too strong for their opponents.
Next up I’m taking Mr Fixit's side Clydebank who are 8-11 as they visit Tollcross to play Vale of Clyde.
The Bankies have recovered well from their opening-day defeat to put together a run of six games unbeaten while their hosts have only one victory to their name in the league. I'm told Bankies strolled to victory against leaders Whitletts so they look dead certs.
Finally, I’m taking a side I had said I wouldn’t choose again as they've let me down a few times.
But I'm giving Whitburn (evens) another chance at home to Armadale in a local derby.
Both sides have been inconsistent so far but I reckon the home side can edge this match and climb the table.
Tomorrow sees Irvine Meadow and Auchinleck Talbot square up at Beith in the Ayrshire League Cup Final. Meadow are favourites at evens to win in 90 minutes with Auchinleck
To win the Cup outright you can back Meadow at 8-15 with Auchinleck 11-8.
Last weekend there weren't many shocks in the Scottish Cup but my side, Cumnock were held at home to Benburb and have it all to do today in Govan.
The draw for the second round takes place in Linlithgow tomorrow so if you are planning on backing your side to win do do before the odds change.
Latest outright: Irvine Meadow 8-1, Linlithgow 9-1, Bo'ness 12-1, Auchinleck, Beith 14-1, Arthurlie, Bathgate, Lochee Utd, Pollok, Tayport 16-1, Clydebank, Kilbirnie, Largs, Bonnyrigg, Newtongrange 25-1, 33-1 bar.
A lot of the leagues are beginning to take shape with the current favourites for the five Super Leagues being Irvine Meadow 15-8, Clydebank 7-2, Linlithgow
2-1, Glenrothes 10-3 and Sunnybank 5-1. A £1 accer on those fives pays £378.
Pays 19-5 at William Hill
Paul's treble pays just over 4-1 as he tries to move further ahead in the race.
He writes: Rob Roy will be kicking themselves that they even needed a replay but should win their Scottish Cup clash against East Kilbride with a bit in hand. They are 4-7.
Lochee United were unlucky to lose last week against Linlithgow and I fancy them to beat Musselburgh at 8-13.
Finally, Glenrothes proved last week in the Scottish Cup that if they click they are a good team. I fancy them to win the local derby (21-20).
