The NBA Investigates Suspicious Betting Irregularities on Jontay Porter: What You Need to Know

NBA Investigating Suspicious Betting Activities Involving Jontay Porter of Toronto Raptors

The NBA is currently investigating potential betting irregularities related to Jontay Porter, a player for the Toronto Raptors. Despite being inactive for the team’s last two games due to personal reasons, there have been reports of suspicious activity involving Porter and prop bets on DraftKings Sportsbook.

On January 26, users who placed bets on the under for Porter’s three-pointers were the largest winners of NBA player prop betting. On March 20, DraftKings flagged Porter as a prop bet winner again, with no attempts at three-pointers before leaving the game due to illness.

Despite these incidents, Porter averages close to 14 minutes per game and only played four minutes on January 26 and three minutes on March 20 before exiting each game early. His representatives have not responded to requests for comment on the matter.

A DraftKings spokesperson declined to comment on any specifics regarding this investigation but emphasized that legal and regulated sports betting is crucial in maintaining the integrity of sports by identifying and reporting any suspicious activity.
