Investigation Underway by NBA Regarding Betting Anomalies Involving Toronto Raptors Player Jontay Porter

Jontay Porter, a player for the Toronto Raptors, has been at the center of an NBA investigation into betting anomalies. League spokesperson Tim Frank confirmed to CNN that prop bets related to Porter are being looked into. Despite not playing in the last two games due to personal reasons, as stated by the team, the Raptors have declined to comment on the situation. Porter’s representatives have also not responded to requests for comment.

According to reports, two specific games involving prop bets concerning Porter were flagged by DraftKings Sportsbook in its daily betting insights. On January 26, users betting the under on Porter’s three-pointers were the biggest money-makers for NBA player prop betting that day. Similarly, on March 20, Porter prop bettors were also the biggest winners of the day in NBA betting. In both cases, Porter exited the game early.

Porter usually plays nearly 14 minutes per game but only logged four minutes on January 26 without attempting a three-pointer due to a reaggravation of an eye injury. On March 20, Porter played just three minutes and scored zero points before leaving the game due to illness.

DraftKings declined to comment on the situation, emphasizing the importance of legal and regulated sports betting in identifying and reporting suspicious activity to protect the integrity of the sport. The NBA is currently investigating these incidents and will take appropriate action if necessary to maintain fair play and protect players from any potential harm or advantage gained through illegal activities.
