NBA Investigates Raptors’ Jontay Porter Amid Betting Irregularities Allegations

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

The NBA has launched an investigation into Toronto Raptors forward Jontay Porter following reports of suspected betting irregularities by Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Porter was held out of the lineup for the Raptors’ game against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night and it remains unclear when he will return.

The league has confirmed that they are actively investigating the situation, 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. Despite not playing, 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 his 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 Washington Wizards over the weekend citing personal reasons and was also sidelined for their game versus Brooklyn Nets due to 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.
