The NBA is currently investigating betting anomalies related to Jontay Porter, a player for the Toronto Raptors. Prop bets concerning Porter are being looked into, as stated by league spokesperson Tim Frank in a recent interview with CNN.

Two specific games involving prop bets on Porter were flagged by DraftKings Sportsbook in its daily betting insights. On January 26th, users betting the under on Porter’s three-pointers made the biggest money-makers for NBA player prop betting that day. Similarly, on March 20th, Porter’s prop bettors were also the biggest winners of the day in NBA betting. In both cases, Porter exited the game early.

Porter usually plays nearly 14 minutes per game but only logged four minutes on January 26th without attempting a three-pointer due to a reaggravation of an eye injury. On March 20th, he played just three minutes and scored zero points before leaving the game due to illness.
