Game Of Thrones Odds: Who Will Rule Westeros?

Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow discuss matters during an episode of Game of Thrones.

Spoiler Alert: This article features several spoilers  I mean a lot of spoilers. If you have not watched the newest season of Game of Thrones, I would strongly suggest doing so before reading this article.

For seven seasons, we have been speculating as to who would sit atop the Iron Throne come the finale of HBO’s epic Game of Thrones. Now with season 8 in the not-too-distant future – depending on how you define “not-too-distant” – the ruling parties of Westeros are starting to take shape.

Online sportsbook Bovada has set odds on who will be the ruler of Westeros come the end of the season – and to the surprise of nobody, the top odds are held by Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow (+200).

After years of speculation about Snow’s parentage, it was confirmed that he was born to Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen. This revelation makes Snow the rightful heir to the Iron Throne despite the fact that he and Dany are both unaware of this fact. If they were aware of the fact that they were related, then maybe they would not have had some very uncomfortable alone time aboard a boat at the end of season 7.

As far as most people are concerned, the only proper ending to the series will see either Jon or Daenerys ruling over Westeros. Both have true royal lineage and rights to the throne and both are beloved by the viewing audiences.

But if we know one thing about Game of Thrones, it is that they have little problem killing off major characters. With both Snow and Daenerys currently heading north and the White Walkers marching south, I would be surprised if both the Targaryens manage to survive until the end of the series.

Could Bran Be The Three-Eyed Raven And King?

However, on the chance that Snow or Targaryen don’t end up ruling the kingdom, the next best odds belong to Bran Stark. Bran has gone from lovable kid to annoying side character to incredibly important character in the universe thanks to his new role as the three-eyed raven. And though he may actually make the most sense to be the king – having a logic-driven person who can literally see all time is not a bad person to vote for – it seems unlikely that he would ever take up the mantle considering his new role.

The Night King Cometh? 

If you are expecting the writers to go with the full-blown, depressing, “the world sucks” ending, you can also bet on The Night King at +1000. The Night King is marching south with a horde of the dead and a wicked CGI dragon that fires ice beams like lasers. That sounds pretty much unstoppable. However, the fact that White Walkers are susceptible to fire and Daenerys still has two fire-breathing dragons does make the idea of The Night King making it all the way to King’s Landing seem unlikely.
