Jontay Porter Under Investigation For Prop Betting

Jontay Porter was removed from the lineup Monday after he became the subject of an NBA gambling investigation.

ESPN’s David Purdum reported that the Raptor’s player is being investigated into some irregularities in prop betting involving him on January 26th and March 20th.

On January 26th, the Toronto Raptors and the LA Clippers played a game in which Porter only played for four minutes. He stated that he had reaggravated an eye injury. Before the game, Porter’s props were set at 5.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 1.5 assists, with over/under one made three-pointer. However, he did not score in the game, grabbed three rebounds and one assist before exiting the game. As a result, all of the total bets on Porter’s unders hit across the board. The next day, DraftKings Sportsbook reported to its users that Porter’s props were the number one winner on the platform the night before.

Sports betting has become something that the Association has monitored heavily as Sports Gambling is growing and being integrated more and more into the game. Porter was finally given an NBA chance this year with the Toronto Raptors after not playing the last two years after leaving Missouri University.

After tearing his ACL and struggling to find a team that suited him, it was encouraging to see Porter perform well, averaging four points, two assists, and three rebounds in just 14 minutes per game. Unfortunately, his time in the NBA was short-lived, and it is almost certain that he will not play again unless he is able to clear his name of any wrongdoing.
