Game of Thrones Season 7 Betting Specials

July 20th 2017, 1:13am, By: andyrosos

With the most popular TV Show of the generation returning to TV this week, many fans were signing up to Foxtel just so they could get the new season of Game of Thrones direct from the U.S. The first six seasons of the show have been littered with surprising and at times heartbreakingly unexpected deaths amd Season 7 promises to be no different. 

With the popularity of the show and the fact that is has now surpassed the plot set out by the George R.R Martin books, many betting agencies have opened markets on things such as who will rule Westeros by the end of Season 7 and who will die next!

Incestuous red head and one of the show’s key antagonists, Cersei Lannister, currently sits atop the Iron Throne. She claimed the title of queen for herself when her son, King Tommen, flung himself out of a window to end Season 6.

She is favourite with Sportsbet to retain the throne through the end of the season at the low price of $1.35. They are probably on the right track, we doubt that one of the key battles that we have been leading up to for six seasons would be over and done in just one season. 

However, Game of Thrones is only signed on for the rest of this season (eight episodes) and then a final season of six episodes next year. There’s a high chance that they use the rest of this season to pay-off the battle for Westeros and then use Season 8 to payoff the battle with the coming White Walkers.

A bet on the Dragon Queen Daenerys Targaryen would be the likely pick if they decide to go this route.

 

Another really smokey chance we like to sit atop the Iron Throne at some stage is Euron Greyjoy. Euron has just been denied the opportunity to wed Cersei and become the King by marriage so it’s likely he’ll make a play for the throne in anger... Or if Cersei does come around to the marriage proposal there’s a chance he’ll backstab her like he did his brother.

This would set up a massive clash with himself and his nephew and niece, Theon and Yara who side with Daenerys.

Another big market at Sportsbet is their ‘next to die’ outright and head to heads. It’s always a toss up as to who will meet their maker next in Game of Thrones, none except the book readers would have predicted Robb Stark and his mother to be slain all the way back in season three nor Jon Snow to be betrayed at the end of season five. 

In saying that, there are a few favourites who we like to meet a sticky end in the coming episodes. Daenerys looks to already have the backing of the Martells now regardless of what happens, and Euron’s promise that he will return to Cersei with a gift has us thinking that it could be the head of Ellaria Sand, who killed Cersei’s daughter.

Sportsbet also offer some head to heads on who will die next, Gregor Clegane seems the obvious choice in the head to head against his brother Sandor. He has already died once and been revived so it’s unlikely that he will last long moving forward. 

The Greyjoy head to head is an interesting one. Theon has regained the love of the fans after some bad times so its odd to see him the heavy favourite to die before his sister Yara. However, a likely scenario is that he makes one final sacrificeto make up for betraying the Starks, which would be a fitting end for him.
