Cade McNamara threw four touchdown passes and ran for another in a relief role, Hassan Haskins scored on a 1-yard plunge in the third overtime, and Michigan ended a three-game losing streak with a 48-42 victory over Rutgers at Piscataway, N.J. on Saturday.

McNamara completed 27 of 36 passes for 260 yards. Starting quarterback Joe Milton was benched late in the first half after completing just five of 12 pass attempts.

Haskins rushed for 112 yards on 23 carries for the Wolverines (2-3, 2-3 Big Ten).

Noah Vedral passed for 378 yards and three touchdowns for Rutgers (1-4, 1-4) and forced overtime by running in a two-point conversion in the final minute.

Michigan's Quinn Nordin missed a 35-yard field-goal try in the first overtime but Valentino Ambrosio pulled a 45-yard try on Rutgers' possession.

Jovani Haskins then hauled in a 25-yard scoring pass from Vedral on the next play to put the Scarlet Knights on top. McNamara scored from two yards out as the Wolverines forced a third overtime.

After Haskins put Michigan in front with his scoring run, the two-point conversion pass failed. But the Scarlet Knights failed to pick up a first down on their possession, which ended up with a fourth-down interception.

Michigan's Giles Jackson returned the third-quarter kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown. He raced along the left sideline as the Wolverines immediately cut the Scarlet Knights' 10-point halftime advantage to 17-14.

Rutgers got those points back just over a minute later when Vedral found Bo Melton behind the defense on a 61-yard scoring pass.

The Wolverines responded with McNamara's 8-yard touchdown pass to Nick Eubanks.

Ambrosio's 42-yard field goal with 6:00 left in the third quarter nudged Rutgers' lead to 27-21.

The Wolverines took the lead for the first time when wideout Mike Sainristil cut toward the hashmarks and caught a 6-yard pass from McNamara with 13:38 remaining.

McNamara's fourth scoring toss, a 9-yard hookup with Cornelius Johnson, increased the Wolverines' lead to 35-27.

Vedral hit Aron Cruickshank with an 11-yard touchdown pass on fourth down with 27 seconds left. Vedral's run for the two-point conversion tied the game at 35-all.

Rutgers held a 17-7 halftime lead.

How Our Computer Picks System Works

Our software doesn't simulate sports results like our competitors, we track real bets.

We have exclusive access to a database with 10,000+ real bettors. Our software tracks all of these players in real-time.

Our proprietary algorithms then rank every handicapper in the database based on how well they perform by sport and bet type.

When our system identifies multiple sharps betting on the same outcome, our software automatically publishes the AI pick above.

We have zero control on the picks released by our software. It's simply using algorithms to generate the sharpest sports picks with the most value (+EV).

Why Are There No Computer Picks?

Our AI system generates quality picks with a proven return on investment (ROI).

We believe in quality over quantity.

Some days, there may be zero AI picks, as our algorithms haven't generated any picks with enough value to be released .

We recommend not looking at the volume of bets released by our AI software, but look at the results and profits generated.

If there are no computer picks listed here, we still have daily sports picks from the pros.
