NBA Investigating Jontay Porter of the Raptors for Betting Irregularities: Report

NBA Investigates Toronto Raptors Forward Jontay Porter Over Suspected Betting Irregularities

Jontay Porter, a Toronto Raptors forward, is currently under investigation by the NBA for suspected betting irregularities. According to a report by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Porter was withheld from the lineup for the Raptors’ game against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night and it remains uncertain how long he will be out. The league has confirmed that they are actively investigating the situation.

The NBA is specifically looking into two recent games where there was unusual betting activity related to Porter’s prop bets. In a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Jan. 26, Porter played only four minutes and left the game due to an eye injury. He recorded no points, three rebounds, one assist, and did not attempt a 3-pointer, resulting in the under hitting on all four prop bet categories. The under on Porter’s 3-pointers was reportedly a significant win for bettors through DraftKings Sportsbook.

Another game under scrutiny is when the Raptors faced the Phoenix Suns on March 20. Porter played just three minutes before being ruled out due to illness, registering no points, two rebounds, and one missed shot. Once again, the under hit on all prop bet categories for Porter, proving to be a top money earner for bettors that night through DraftKings Sportsbook.

Porter did not participate in the Raptors’ game against the Washington Wizards over the weekend, citing personal reasons. He was also sidelined for the game versus the Nets due to the same undisclosed reasons. NBA regulations strictly prohibit players and all league employees from betting on any NBA games or engaging in any form of prop betting.
