LEM’s LINE: Legendary sports bettor Banker likes the Cardinals


  Today’s Morning Line has been replaced by Lem’s Line in honor of my pal Lem Banker.

  Take them early, take them often, Lem says. The best values on the board for Sunday’s Super Bowl have Arizona’s name on it.

  Banker’s problem is simple. He’s almost never wrong on the Super Bowl, but I like the Cardinals, too.

  And I’m almost never right.

  How terrible am I?

  I once missed a proposition bet on the number of quarters in the game.

  I bet “no” on the possibility of seeing a beer commercial during the telecast.

  And in simplest terms that’s my problem with Lem’s opinion.

  If I share it, it has to be suspect.
