With the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones less than two months away, it seems everyone is wagering to guess who will end up ruling Westeros. But there are some that are wagering money on who will end up ruling Westeros.
Vegas has released odds on who will end up seated on the Iron Throne—or metaphorical Iron Throne if it ends up being devoured by wildfire or dragonfire—and the odds on the favorite may surprise you. It’s not Jon Snow. It’s not Daenerys Targaryen. It’s not Tyrion Lannister, Cersei Lannister or Jaime Lannister.
It’s the Three-Eyed Raven: Bran Stark.
And Bran isn’t just the favorite. He’s a heavy favorite according to Las Vegas. To put this into a little perspective, the second most likely ruler according to Vegas is Jon Snow. If you bet $100 on Jon, you’d end up winning $600. If you bet $100 on Bran, you’d only end up winning $66.
