NBA Investigating Jontay Porter of Raptors for Betting Irregularities

The NBA is currently investigating Toronto Raptors forward Jontay Porter for possible betting irregularities, as reported by ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The league issued a statement to ESPN, confirming that they are looking into the matter.

Reports suggest that the NBA is specifically looking into two games where there was suspicious betting activity surrounding Porter’s prop bets. On January 26 against the Los Angeles Clippers, Porter played only four minutes before leaving due to an eye injury. Despite playing such a short time, all of his prop bets hit under on DraftKings Sportsbook, making it an unprofitable day for bettors through the platform.

On March 20, in a game against the Phoenix Suns, Porter played just three minutes before being ruled out due to an illness. Once again, all of his prop bets hit under on DraftKings Sportsbook, attracting significant betting interest through the platform. However, it is worth noting that while he missed the game against the Washington Wizards on Saturday for personal reasons, he did not play in any games during this season due to injury or other reasons.

It is important to note that NBA players and all league employees are prohibited from betting on any NBA games, including prop bets. Porter, who is in his first season with the Raptors on a two-way deal, averages 4.4 points and 3.2 rebounds in 26 games this season. While he made his debut with the Memphis Grizzlies in 2020 and had some success there before sitting out for two seasons due to injury and other reasons.
