The NBA Faces a New Betting Scandal

Betting Scandals in Major League Baseball and NBA: Unveiling the Reality of Influencing Single-Game Props”.

Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are both facing their own betting scandals, although they are not directly related to betting on games. The NBA is currently investigating a potential betting scandal involving Raptors forward Jontay Porter. According to ESPN.com, the league is looking into prop bets involving Porter from games played on January 26 and March 20.

During the January 26 game against the Clippers, Porter left the game due to an eye injury and there was an increase in bets on the under for his points, rebounds, assists, and three-pointer props. His under hit in each category. Similarly, on March 20, Porter left a game against the Kings with an illness after only three minutes. Once again, the under hit on his various props. An unnamed source from a sportsbook told ESPN.com that people were trying to bet on Porter props during the game against the Clippers.

Porter has missed Toronto’s last two games for personal reasons. While it may be challenging for one player to influence the outcome of a bet on the final score of a game, individual players can have significant influence on their individual props, especially in regards to hitting the unders. This situation could be just the beginning of a larger issue that may lead to widespread federal regulation of professional and college sports as more states legalize sports betting. It is crucial to maintain the integrity of both the games and the bets being placed in order to prevent any potential issues that may arise from this new trend in gambling laws.
