Shaw, the injured defensive back who was banned by the league on Friday through at least through the 2020 season for betting on multiple NFL games, wagered against the Cardinals as part of a three-team parlay at Caesars sportsbook in Las Vegas on November 10, ESPN reported.
Tampa Bay led 17-13 at halftime but didn't cover the second-half spread en route to a 30-27 win. The Buccaneers were 1-point favorites for the second half.
He placed the bet at Caesars sportsbook in Las Vegas on November 10, and they are part of the reason the National Football League suspended him.
It was not disclosed if Shaw bet on the Cardinals, how much he wagered and where he bet.
According to a statement from the NFL, Shaw did not benefit from any inside information and did not compromise the outcome of any game.
The gambling lesson learned by Josh Shaw should be twofold. At the core of this responsibility is the longstanding principle that betting on National Football League games, or on any element of a game, puts at risk the integrity of the game, damages public confidence in the National Football League, and is forbidden under all circumstances. The former fourth-round draft pick is on injured reserve and hasn't played for Arizona this season.
Shaw didn't appear to try very hard to hide his gambling. Nevada sportsbooks are required by law to try and prevent accepting paying out bets to anyone who might be directly involved with any of the teams in the wager (owners, players, coaches).
ESPN reports that Caesars contacted the Nevada State Gaming Control Board the same day Shaw placed the bet.
