    College football bowl season rolls along on Saturday with six games between NCAA Division I FBS teams. 

    The Wasabi Fenway Bowl pits the 9-3 Cincinnati Bearcats against the 7-5 Louisville Cardinals in a game with two interim coaches. There's added intrigue, however, as Cardinals coach Scott Satterfield left to accept the Bearcats job after Luke Fickell bolted to Wisconsin. Caesars Sportsbook has Louisville as a 1-point favorite with the over/under at 41.5

    The SRS Las Vegas Bowl plays host to its first ever SEC team as the 6-6 Florida Gators take on the No. 14 Oregon State Beavers, who enter at 9-3. Caesars lists Oregon State as a 10-point favorite with the total set at 52.5.

    Mountain West Conference winners Fresno State meet Pac-12 representative Washington State in the Jimmy Kimmel LA Bowl Presented by Stifel. Fresno State is a 3-point favorite according to Caesars and the over/under is 54.5.

    The LendingTree Bowl features two teams with the worst combined records in any bowl game, as the 5-7 Rice Owls face the 6-6 Southern Miss Golden Eagles. The Golden Eagles have been installed as a 6.5-point favorite by Caesars with the total at 46.5.

    Two 7-5 teams meet in the New Mexico Bowl, the SMU Mustangs and BYU Cougars. SMU is listed as a 5.5-point favorite against the spread by Caesars with the total at 64.

    Finally, te 7-6 North Texas Mean Green play close to home in the Frisco Bowl against the 9-4 Boise State Broncos. North Texas, which fired coach Seth Littrell after losing to UTSA several weeks ago, is a 10.5-point underdog with the total at 57 per Caesars.

    Before you submit your parlays for these games, check out what the SportsLine Projection Model and SportsLine college football analyst Eric Cohen recommend for this Friday's games.

    The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every FBS college football game 10,000 times. Over the past six-plus years, the proprietary computer model has generated a stunning profit of almost $2,500 for $100 players on its top-rated college football picks against the spread. Anyone who has followed it has seen HUGE returns.

    Cohen finished one game above .500 with his picks on the season, including an impressive 17-8 run over the final two weeks of the season. His SEC conference parlays generated more than 11 units of profit for bettors who followed his selections.

    One of the bowl picks the model is high on: the over 64 in the New Mexico Bowl. SMU averaged 38.4 points per game in the regular season and BYU was nearly a touchdown behind with a 31.9 PPG average. With the weather being clear on Saturday, it's likely a shootout will be in store.

    Another prediction: Cohen is taking Under 52.5 in the Last Vegas Bowl. "Oregon State surrendered an average of 21.4 points per game during the regular season and Florida's fairly potent offense will be without quarterback Anthony Richardson, who opted out to declare for the NFL Draft. It's likely the Gators will struggle to move the ball with backup QB Jack Miller at the helm."

    You ABSOLUTELY need to see their Friday bowl parlays before locking in any of your own.
