Raptors Jontay Porter ‘bet millions of dollars across thousands of wagers as VIP member of FanDuel


Toronto Raptors center Jontay Porter owned and operated a VIP account at FanDuel in Colorado that wagered millions of dollars in total from 2021 to 2023, multiple sources with direct knowledge told the Action Network.

One of those sources said FanDuel did not accept any wagers on the NBA or college basketball from Porter, whose brother, Michael Porter Jr., is a pivotal member of the Denver Nuggets team that won the NBA championship in 2023.

Porter allegedly placed over 1,000 wagers at the sportsbook. “He was firing all of the time,” a source said.

Porter was a member of three different NBA G League teams during these alleged wagering activities. Porter’s FanDuel account activity ceased a few weeks before he signed a two-way contract with the Toronto Raptors, a source said.

ESPN reported in March that Jontay was under investigation by the NBA due to irregular betting activity on his prop bets. During two games earlier this season, wagers on Porter to underperform were the most profitable bets of the day, according to data from DraftKings. Porter played but left early in both games with reported ailments. Each time, anyone who bet the under on Porter’s props profited.

A request for comment made to Jontay Porter’s agent was not returned.

Last Thursday, Colorado gaming regulators requested sportsbooks in the state to report any accounts that Jontay may have operated.

“We are requesting that you review all patron accounts thoroughly to identify if Jontay Porter has ever had an account with your sportsbook,” the letter, sent to all Colorado operators, read. “If so, please review Mr. Porter’s account for wagering activities on NBA-affiliated games. Note that all wagering activities by Mr. Porter on NBA-affiliated games shall be reported to the Division immediately.”
