Will Bran be the next ruler of Westeros? Will Daenarys perish? Sports betting odds try to answer these questions for the Game of Thrones series finale.
The final episode of the popular TV series Game of Thrones is just a few days away, and the answer to the age-long question of “Who will rule the Westeros?” will soon be revealed.
Amid all speculations of the rightful king or queen, it is still uncertain who will exactly be the new ruler. Odds, however, still point to Bran Stark, as most online sportsbooks had predicted last year. Although, some key characters’ bid for the Throne changed as the episodes of Game of Thrones Season 8 unravel one by one.
Bitcoin-friendly online sportsbooks Bodog, 1xBit, and Betrally all agree that Bran Stark will rule the Seven Kingdoms, with 1.25, 1.256, and 1.25 odds, respectively.
His sister, Sansa, is also poised to be Westeros’ next ruler. Betrally gives her 3.00 odds to succeed, while 1xBit gives 2.995 odds. Bodog, on the other hand, posts 5.00 odds for Sansa Stark.
Jon Snow, however, drops down the list, settling for a 3rd to 5th spot, along with Daenarys Targaryen, who was groomed to be the rightful heir to the Throne in the past seven seasons.
Both Arya and Gendry find themselves with better odds at 5.00 on Betrally, enough to trail behind Bran and Sansa. Bodog and 1xBit, meanwhile, believes Tyrion Lannister has 9.00 odds to rule all of Westeros.
Will the Mother of Dragons Perish?
Despite the build up for Daenarys, it appears that she will face death in the last episode — the first named character to do so in the finale.
1xBit gives her 1.208 odds, while BetOnline.ag gives her 1.22 to be the first one to bid farewell in Episode 6 of Season 8. BetOnline.ag also posts 1.16 odds that Daenarys will not survive by the end of the season.
Bitcoin sports bettors can also wager on the method by which she will perish. Odds on 1xBit hint that either a sword or a dagger will end her life, but the question is whose sword or dagger will it be?
1xBit places Jon Snow with 1.26 odds and Arya Stark with 2.35 odds as the two named characters who will most likely do the deed.
The concluding episode of the epic tale Game of Thrones will air on Sunday, May 19.
