‘Game of Thrones’ Bets Point to Bran Stark Sitting on the Iron Throne
WARNING: Major Game of Thrones spoilers ahead.
As we brace ourselves for the final episode of Game of Thrones, we're able to check off a few names that are no longer contenders for the Iron Throne. Cersei and Jaime met their demise in the penultimate episode, and Daenerys Targaryen has officially gone full Mad Queen, making her chances of obtaining the throne (and surviving, quite honestly) slim to none. So who's now the frontrunner to sit on that incredibly uncomfortable chair at the end of the series? According to betting site SportsBetting.ag (via TMZ) it's...Bran Stark.
While we really hope the betting gods are incorrect (he's not really even a functional human anymore), the odds are definitely in his favor—though the same can't be said for those who bet on him, or the house. Bran is at 1/1 odds for sitting on the Iron Throne, meaning you get your money back if you bet on him and win.
As for who lives and who dies, gamblers have Jon Snow as the odds-on favorite to survive the whole thing at 2/5. Arya has the highest survival odds at 1/1, and people have their money on Dany dying by sword/dagger with 1/2 odds.
We'll have to wait and see how it all pans out. Game of Thrones' series finale airs May 19 at 9pm EST/PST on HBO.
