Sportsbook betting doesn’t have to be all about sports, despite what the name implies. In the new age of entertainment that we live in, US sportsbook fans can now wager on a wide array of events from political elections to electronic gaming. But one of the newer types of lines, that are gaining popularity with every passing season, is betting on television. In particular, the madness that is Game of Thrones.
Game of Thrones betting has become extremely popular over the last couple of years. Granted, an online leak during season 7 forced US sportsbooks to take the lines down earlier than anticipated. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be some great betting options for the final series.
Season 7’s finale helped answer some burning questions that fans had built up but it also set the landscape for an epic conclusion to the series. It also opened the door for the best sportsbooks on the internet to put out some appealing prop bets for Game of Thrones fans who are looking to wager on one of their favorite shows.
Let’s take a look at some of the lines that have come out for the upcoming season 8 of Game of Thrones.
Who Will Rule Westeros when it’s all Said ‘n’ Done?
This is the bet at the heart of it all. Last year’s version was a preliminary version, or who would be sitting on the Iron Throne while we await the start of the final season.
Jon Snow –150
Daenerys Targaryen +200
Jaime Lannister +1000
Tyrion Lannister +2000
Cersei Lannister +2500
Sansa Stark +2500

Who Will Kill Cersei Lannister?
A good portion of the Game of Thrones fan base feels that Cersei’s time is up. She’s ruthless, beautiful and a fan favorite, but some US sportsbook players just can’t shake the feeling that her time is up.
Sure, Queen Cersei has been able to find a way out of every sticky situation she encounters, but at this point she’s burned so many bridges that there aren’t many outs or options remaining.
So, the question lingers: who will kill the mother of dragons?
Jaime Lannister -200
Arya Stark +750
Tyrion Lannister +750
Someone/Something Else +250
Cleganebowl – Who Will Fall First?
This line revolves around a fan theory that believes that two hateful brothers; the Hound and the Mountain, are fated to clash and ultimately fall at the hands of each other.
The Hound +300
The Mountain -500
Will Another Dragon Die?
Watching Khaleesi lose one of her offspring was one of the telling moments of season 7. But it also left fans wondering whether we had seen the last of dragon bloodshed.
What Kind of Viewership Will Season’s 8 Premiere Receive?
As previously mentioned, online sportsbook betting players nowadays have the ability to bet on whatever comes to mind. And that includes just how many viewers season 8’s premiere will have.
