NBA Investigating Suspicious Betting Activities Involving Jontay Porter of Toronto Raptors

The NBA is currently investigating potential betting anomalies related to Toronto Raptors player Jontay Porter. In the last two games, Porter has been inactive due to personal reasons and the team has not made any comments on the matter. His representatives have also not responded to requests for comment.

According to reports, there have been two instances where DraftKings Sportsbook flagged prop bets involving Porter in their daily betting insights. On January 26, users betting the under on Porter’s three-pointers were the biggest moneymakers for NBA player prop betting. On March 20, Porter’s prop bettors were also the biggest winners for that day’s NBA betting. However, in both cases, Porter left the game early.

Despite his limited playing time – averaging close to 14 minutes per game – Porter only played four minutes on January 26 and did not attempt a three-pointer before leaving due to a reaggravation of a previous eye injury. On March 20, he played only three minutes and scored zero points before leaving due to illness.

A DraftKings spokesperson declined to comment on the situation but emphasized that legal and regulated sports betting helps identify and report suspicious activity to protect the integrity of sports, which is impossible in the illegal market.
