Odds slashed on Arya Stark’s fate in ‘Game of Thrones’ season 8

Speculation is rife among fans and punters on who might meet their end in the final season

The odds have been slashed on the likelihood that Arya Stark will die in the forthcoming eighth and final season of Game of Thrones following a flurry of bets.

Speculation persists among fans of the fantasy HBO show, which will bow out later this year at the conclusion of the upcoming season (which will premiere on April 14), about which central characters will meet their end.

A number of GoT fans have apparently been putting their money where the mouth is recently, with bookmaker Betway being sufficiently moved to slash their odds on the prospect of Arya’s death in season eight.


 “A number of bets are being placed with little over two weeks to go until the final season of Game Of Thrones,” Betway’s Alan Alger explained in a statement. “Last week, Tyrion Lannister was backed into 1/2 from 6/4 to be killed off before the show draws to a close, but Arya Stark is the big mover in the last 24 hours with her odds slashed to evens from 2/1.

“House Stark could be decimated in this final series, with Sansa just 8/13 to bite the dust, Arya recently very well backed and Bran just 2/1 to be killed off.”

  • Cersei Lannister – 1/30
  • Lord Varys – 1/12
  • Jaime Lannister – 1/7
  • Daenerys Targaryen -2/5
  • Theon Greyjoy -1/2
  • Tyrion Lannister -1/2
  • Sansa Stark -8/13
  • Arya Stark -2/1
  • Jon Snow – 6/4
  • Bran Stark – 2/1
  • Samwell Tarly- 5/2
