'Game of Thrones' fans place their bets on Jaime Lannister to die first

It looks like Jaime Lannister is not going to be in 'Game of Thrones' for much longer — at least if we go with what Oddsmakers say.

According to SportsBetting.ag, a cyber-gambling website, Jaime Lannister is most favored to die first in the eighth and the final season of 'Game of Thrones' with the odds at 5/1. The odds for Nikolaj Coster-Waldau's character of Jaime has changed a lot over the course of two weeks having opened the season with a long shot at 50/1.

While bets are placed on the Kingslayer, it can't be said who will kill the greatest swordsman in the kingdom.

What cements the bet further is that Jaime is also the new favorite to be Arya Stark's first kill in the season with a 2/1 odd. Arya had a surprise in store for fans of the series with her scene with Gendry, but she hasn't killed anyone yet.


Jaime really needs to be careful about his next steps in 'Game of Thrones' since Arya is not the only threat looming over his head. He also has to contend with the Night King and the army of the dead who are on their way to Winterfell. And to make matters worse, his twin sister Cersei Lannister has hired Ser Bronn to kill him.

As a result, Jaime's odds to sit on the Iron Throne keep getting bleak. He is now far away from the throne with a long shot at 33/1 since entering the eighth season with odds at 14/1.

Speaking of the Iron Throne, Daenerys Targaryen, who until now seemed like one of the most likely people to rule Westeros, having 3/1 odds last week, now has 5/1 odds. This is following the big reveal by Jon Snow that he's the rightful heir of House Targaryen.
