Would Sex with a Robot Be Infidelity?

As I venture more into artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics, I will encounter a lot of issues for which there are no clear or right answers.

What’s the Vegas Odds the Patriots Will Cheat for Super Bowl XLIX?

The Super Bowl is the biggest betting day of the year. There are bets and odds available for just about everything, including some really ridiculous things!

Given that premise, I want to know the odds being offered for something far less ridiculous, which is the New England Patriots cheating. Seriously, they are serial cheaters. When they get caught, it’s not for an instance, but a long running scheme they had been running to the point of getting caught. They know the NFL marketing machine well that big penalties aren’t going to be handed out so that the crime is well worth the risks. No wins forfeited. No Super Bowl trips retracted. But also no big prizes if they don’t cheat either cause have they won any Super Bowls since Spy Gate?

So yes, very seriously, what’s the Vegas line for the Patriots cheating this Super Bowl XLIX???

I’d bet on more than even. Question is will the Pats get caught, not would they do it. 🙂
