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

The NBA is currently investigating betting anomalies related to Jontay Porter, a player for the Toronto Raptors. Prop bets concerning Porter are being looked into by league spokesperson Tim Frank, who told CNN that the situation is being closely monitored.

On January 26 and March 20, two specific games involved prop bets concerning Porter that 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 due to personal reasons.

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, he played just three minutes and scored zero points before leaving the game due to illness. Despite this, DraftKings declined to comment on the situation and instead emphasized the importance of legal and regulated sports betting in identifying and reporting suspicious activity to protect the integrity of the sport.
