Game of Thrones’ end game is a complete mystery – at the moment.
As a plethora of armies begin to form for the final season, fans are convinced they will see one final victor to come out on top.
However that person’s identity is yet to be revealed, fans are hoping for the favoured underdog Jon Snow (played by Kit Harington) to take the Iron Throne.
But realistically he may not have the best chance at winning, as he does not have a sizeable army like his new beau Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke).
BoyleSports has now provided odds on who could be the true victor of the show after the imminent conflicts.
And the top hits are surprising, as Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) is supposedly the most likely to become a leader in Westeros.
But further down the list sits Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), with 8/1.
Although this may seem unlikely, he is currently straddling the loyalty of a number of parties, including Jon and Danaerys, as well as his estranged sister Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey).
Spokesperson for BoyleSports Lawrence Lyons explained: “The patience of Game Of Thrones fans is being tested to the full and this week we saw a rush of money for Tyrion Lannister to rule Westeros come the finale.
“We can only take clues from the betting patterns because we’re as in the dark as everyone else and we’ll be glued to our screens like everyone else come the Spring to see if the gamble was merited.”
Could this surge be hinting at fans’ thoughts on the finale, and who they believe should come out on top?
Alternatively, BoyleSports have also placed Lyanna Targaryen as a potential ruler.
However Lyanna – Jon and Dany’s supposed daughter – has not even been mentioned yet.
Could this extra piece of information reveal that Tyrion could be involved in Jon’s daughter’s life as Hand of the Queen?
Meanwhile, The Night King has been given 12/1 to win the upcoming war, and it is easy to see why.
With the Night King’s power slowly but steadily growing, he may be too powerful for Jon and Danaerys to defeat.
But does this mean he will be able to overthrow all of the human forces ready to take him on?
Earlier this week Euron Greyjoy star Pilou Asbaek spoke out about filming the last season.
Speaking to ShortList he explained: “I was just happy to be part of it.
“I can’t say anything, because I’m not allowed to, but normally it takes six months to shoot ten episodes, and this time we spent ten months shooting six episodes.
“A lot of people made a lot of effort to create the best final season possible.”
Game of Thrones season 8 will return to HBO and Sky Atlantic in 2019. Seasons 1-7 are currently streaming on NOW TV.
