NBA Investigating Suspicious Betting Activities Involving Jontay Porter of Toronto Raptors

The Toronto Raptors are currently under investigation by the NBA for potential betting anomalies related to Jontay Porter, their player. Porter has been inactive for the team’s last two games due to personal reasons, and the Raptors have not commented on the situation.

On January 26, DraftKings Sportsbook flagged prop bets involving Porter in their daily betting insights. Users betting the under on Porter’s three-pointers were the biggest moneymakers for NBA player prop betting that day. On March 20, prop bettors who wagered on Porter were also the biggest winners for that day’s NBA betting. In both instances, Porter exited the game early.

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

A spokesperson from DraftKings 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 illegal markets.
