This would fall under the category of “wacky things you can bet on,” but I am not sure anyone is surprised at this point at the number of things you can bet on these days. HBO’s Game of Thrones is an international hit. Showrunners have confirmed that they have about 13 hours or episodes left to end the saga.
For now, anyway, Bovada.lv is taking bets on who will be on the Iron Throne by the end of the upcoming season, Season 7. Currently, that would be Cersei Lannister, who is the odds-on favorite with current betting odds. The new season begins on July 16, 2017.
We all remember how Cersei ended last season – roasting her enemies in a wildfire, including the Sept of Baelor. Her son, Tommen, committed suicide and even her incestuous brother, Jamie Lannister, did not seem thrilled to see her on the Iron Throne.
Watchers on the Wall, a GoT blog, is reporting that a Cersei and Euron Greyjoy alliance may be in the making. Let’s remember that Euron usurped Yara Greyjoy’s birthright to the throne and promised to marry Daenerys. However, Yara, along with Theon Greyjoy, have already made an alliance with the Breaker of Chains herself and Tyrion Lannister.
This sets the stage for a battle between the two queens. One that likely isn’t going to conclude this season and will stretch into the final round of episodes. Cersei was plus (+) money when the odds opened. She has slowly moved into the spot of heavy favorite in recent weeks.
Bovada’s market appears sharp on who will end the season on the Iron Throne. Most European sportsbooks have also adjusted. However, if you check out the U.S-focused offshore sportsbooks – there may be a few bookmakers that haven’t adjusted.
