THE romance of the Cup will be well and truly alive this weekend as minnows dream of booking a dream date with Rangers or Celtic.

All SPL teams plus some from the First Division who received a bye join the tournament in the next round and there could be a couple of interesting ties.

There are four junior sides left but the only one I expect to progress is Auchinleck Talbot at home to Vale of Leithen.

It's tough for Irvine Meadow v Livingston, Bo'ness v Cowdenbeath and Culter v Partick Thistle.

Tournament sponsors William Hill make all four 100-1 to reach the fourth round while none is 7-1, one 1-2, two 11-4 and three 12-1.

Talbot are 10-11 to be the longest surviving non-league side and again should bring up that bet. You can have Inverurie 5-1, Bo'ness 13-2, Irvine Meadow, Keith 10-1, Deveronvale 14-1, Vale of Leithen 16-1, Culter, Gala Fairydean 20-1.

Looking further ahead it's 1-2 either half of the Old Firm win the Cup and 6-4 anyone else.

A non-SPL winner is 10-1 and a non-SPL to reach the final is 9-2. William Hill reckon and Old Firm is 5-1.

Any non-league side to reach the fifth round pays 4-1 and a non-league outfit to beat an SPL side is 33-1.

Not all bookies will have a lot of markets on today's ties but if you can get them did out some big overs.

There will be goals galore in many of the matches and for example you can have 9-2 with bet365 over five at Culter and 11-2 with the same firm over five at Irvine Meadow.

Stranraer and Forfar both drew 4-4 last weekend and over 4.5 goals in their clash at Stair Park pays 11-4 with


Auchinleck to be longest surviving non-league side

(10-11, William Hill)

Over 4-5 goals at Stranraer


Over five goals at Culter

(9-2, bet365)
