From having watched thousands of balls rolled and hitting the pins, I know what you mean about subconsciously being able to extrapolate the path of the ball, and the likelihood it will strike.

After watching a bowler roll a few balls, I can usually fairly well estimate their average. And, on a given day, after rolling a few balls myself, I can usually get a good idea of my own scoring potential for that day.

That said, my approach to getting lined up is more about having a methodical system. Start here, release there, hit that mark. What happened? Move here, or move there, change balls, releases, etc. While other may have success with an intuitive approach, in my mind, it is more like a giant flowchart with decision boxes at various junctures.
