‘Game of Thrones’ Fans Can Now Bet On How the Series Will End

Fans can bet on how the “Game of Thrones” series finale will go down, and Daenerys Targaryen isn’t the favorite to claim the Iron Throne

Do you think you’re on the same wavelength as George R.R. Martin and the “Game of Thrones” writing team? If so, you can now use your carefully constructed fan theories to win big in Vegas.

The Bovada betting firm has released its odds for several bets on the new season of the hit HBO series, including one on who will become the ruler of Westeros at the end of the series. Surprisingly, the odds-on favorite is not Daenerys Targaryen. Instead, it’s the recently departed Lord Commander Jon Snow, who tops the list with 5/2 odds. Daenerys is second on the list with 3/1 odds.

It would certainly be a dramatic turn of fate for Ned Stark’s illegitimate son, who has spent the whole series excluded from the war for the Iron Throne by his oath to the Night’s Watch. A popular fan theory claims that Jon is not Ned’s son, but rather the child of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen, making him the true blood successor to the throne. Fans who believe in the theory not only think Jon will be brought back from the dead this season, but that he will become a dragon rider and use his new power to overcome all those who have been fighting for control of the realm since the series began.

Or if you’re hunting for a Cinderella pick, you could pick Hodor to claim the Iron Throne. He’s a 500/1 longshot.

The other major prop bet is more immediate and obvious: Who will be the next character to get killed off? Daenerys’ erstwhile ally, Jorah Mormont, is the current favorite with 4/1 odds. Behind him is a character that many fans would love to see killed off: Ser Alliser Thorne. After staging a mutiny in the Night’s Watch that resulted in Jon Snow’s death and a battle to fill the power vacuum left behind, Thorne’s odds of dying have jumped to 15/2.

Behind them are Sansa, Theon and Ramsay, all listed at 8/1. Sansa and Theon are on the run from House Bolton’s most infamous son, and Ramsay has vowed to find them and bring them back. Given the violent nature of both Ramsay and the series as a whole, the only way this conflict can be resolved is if at least one of the three die. So putting your money on this plot thread might be a safe bet.
