OWEN SCOTT of William Hill and Paul Petrie of McBookie.com continue their weekly battle to be crowned top juniors tipster.

It's been a tough campaign for both but Paul just leads with winnings of £21.27.

So can any of them land their treble this weekend? Read on.

Owen writes: “Now it’s getting embarrassing. That’s seven weeks now and still not a winner.

“I have my principles though and won’t be choosing a treble under 2-1 just to get off the block.

“I was tempted though and Beith 1-14, Irvine Meadow 1-33 and Arthurlie 1-12 and that would surely have given me a 1-5 winner!

“The West of Scotland Cup takes centre stage in that region and despite it being the biggest knockout competition in the West after the Scottish, many sides will be giving a run-out to some fringe players this week so be careful when placing your bets.

“I’ll start in this cup with Whitletts (2-5) at home to Annbank in a local derby. These clubs are at opposite sides of the First Division and I reckon that form will see the Ayr side progress to the second round.

“My next selection may raise a few eyebrows as I take Thornton at 5-4 to beat Broxburn. Thornton have only one league win to their name but that came last weekend away to Broughty and I believe it has come just at the right time as Thornton will play their first home game of the season this week as their ground was undergoing some improvements all summer.

“Broxburn won their first three league games but have only picked up one point from their last four games so Thornton will be confident of returning to their home and picking up three points.

“My final selection is Shotts at 11-10 against their Premier League opponents Lanark. Shotts beat Lanark last midweek in the Central League Cup Final and will be confident of doing the double against them and knocking them out the West of Scotland Cup.”

Owen's treble

  • Whitletts 2-5
  • Thornton 5-4
  • Shotts 11-10
  • Treble pays 11-2 with William Hill

Paul Petrie writes: “There are plenty of short -priced favourites in the West this weekend but I am leaving that alone as there could always be shocks in the opening rounds of cup competitions.

“First up I'm going for Carnoustie who are 4-7 to beat Kinnoull. The Gowfers sit top of the league thanks to their home form and should beat Kinnoull with a bit in hand.

“Linlithgow let me down a few weeks ago and they could only manage a draw last week but I think they will get back on track against Newtongrange at 8-13.

“Finally, I am moving North for the first time this season and going for Banchory to win at Fraserburgh (8-13).”

Paul's treble

  • Carnoustie 4-7
  • Linlithgow 8-13
  • Banchory 8-13
  • Treble pays £41.01 to a tenner
