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 £278.48 to Paul's £95.54 after there were no winners last week. Paul had two out of three and it was the same story for Owen.
They are hoping to go one better this weekend and here are Paul's and Owen's tips.
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 is this weekend's tips from Paul and Owen.

Paul writes: “First up in the West Region, I am backing Kilwinning to beat Clydebank at 5-6. The Buffs are evens for the title after a thumping 5-1 victory over Cumnock in midweek.

“They will go into the game on Saturday with massive confidence and can enhance their title chances with another win over a team who also hold aspirations of finishing first.

“However, Clydebank could be feeling the effects of a marathon schedule and several key players missing.

“My next pick is Lochee Utd to beat Jeanfield Swifts at 17-10 and win the GA Engineering Cup. After being pre-season title favourites it looks like Lochee will be missing out on the title with Jeanfield now in pole position.

“However, there has been little between the two sides in the games this season and that means in a one-off game I am happy to side with the underdog and hope for the value.

“My final pick is Newtongrange to beat Dundonald at 4-7. Although this is the quarter-final of the Cup I suspect Dundonald might have their eyes on the league fixture next week and could look to rest some players. They have dropped points in their last two league games and after looking good things for the title have dropped back to second favourites. Newtongrange are in good form so I expect a home win.”

Owen says: “Not long to go this season so I'm determined to get another winner before it ends.

“This week I'm starting with Auchinleck at 1-2 at home to Pollok. Talbot are closing in on retaining the West Premier title and I'm sure they will get all three points.
“Ardrossan (1-1) have given themselves a fighting chance to stay up with recent results in the West First and I reckon they can get another win this week when they host Blantyre Vics.
“Kilwinning meet Clydebank in a crucial match in the West First and neither of the sides can afford to drop points. I'm on the draw at 3-1 in a match that will go a long to deciding who goes up.”
