New Year’s Six College Football Bowl Previews And Picks

We continue our season long Top 25 college football coverage that included some of the big rivalry games and college conference championship games. Now it’s the biggest games of the bowl season with the New Year’s Six Bowl games in our bowl previews and picks to close the 2023 college football season.

I provide my New Year’s Six bowl previews and picks for Offshore Gaming Association as I did throughout the season, along with more odds, insight and information you can bet on.

Get the picks, insight and analysis in my coverage at OSGA, and more New Year’s Six bowl games picks and updates in my coverage in Forbes.

With so many changes and factors to consider and review in college bowls, I reduce wagers and recommendations hoping you understand the college bowl landscape has changed dramatically. If you’re not totally in tune with all the changes and factors, then reducing your wagers or passing on more games is the prudent play.
