Raptors Player Jontay Porter Under Investigation for Betting Anomalies in NBA Prop Betting

NBA Investigating Suspicious Betting Activities Involving Jontay Porter of Toronto Raptors

Jontay Porter, a player for the Toronto Raptors, has been under investigation by the NBA for potential betting anomalies. Despite being inactive for the team’s last two games due to personal reasons, there have been reports of two games in which 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 prop bettors were also the biggest winners for that day’s NBA betting. In both instances, Porter exited the game early.

Despite his limited playing time – averaging close to 14 minutes per game – these incidents raise concerns about suspicious activity related to his performance. He 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, scoring zero points before leaving the game due to illness.

The Raptors have not commented on the situation and Porter’s representatives have not responded to requests for comment. However, legal and regulated sports betting can help identify and report suspicious activity to protect the integrity of sports, which is not possible in illegal markets such as unregulated online gambling platforms.
