Meanwhile, Jon Snow's chances continue to fall
Heading into the very last episode of Game of Thrones, it looks like Las Vegas is now completely convinced that Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) will become the ruler of Westeros by the time the final credits roll.
Throughout the season, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) popped into favor for a bit, but it was his little brother-slash-cousin who came into the season the odds-on favorite, and the Three-Eyed Raven will bookend the season by looming high atop the charts as well.

Bran has now skyrocketed from +200 odds to -500, according to the experts at OddsShark, which may be a result of the ~visions~ (read: spoilers/leaks) that have been lurking around the internet lately. Meanwhile, Jon has dropped from +300 all the way to +800, putting him behind Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner), who also dipped from +300 to +400 and Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), who increased slightly from +900 to +750.
Surprisingly, Bran didn't even appear in the most recent episode that inspired this drastic shift. In "The Bells," he and Sansa Stark were at home in Winterfell while Jon was busy fighting for his new queen to gain control of the Iron Throne. Of course, by being far, far away from that script-flipping action, they both missed out on witnessing the Mother of Dragons (Emilia Clarke) become the Mad Queen at hyperspeed, but they are also not going to be guilty by association for Daenerys Targaryen's razing of King's Landing.

However, Jon does have a bloodright to rule the kingdom, and no matter how many times he declares his disinterest, others around him really seem to want him to take the lead, so it's still surprising to see him fall so far.
Meanwhile, Dany's odds have positively plummeted as a result of her decision to rule with fire and blood instead of love, dropping from +900 to an abysmal +1500. Looks like no one's counting on the Khaleesi to keep her crown in the end.
As for the rest of the surviving contenders, well, they've all been relegated to longshots by now. He might be the newly-minted Lord of Storm's End, but Gendry Baratheon's chances of ruling the seven kingdoms have bottomed out from +600 to +3000, where Arya Stark (Maisie Williams) has also fallen -- although, don't count her out of having an interesting finish, no matter what the numbers say.

Taking up the rear are Dany and Jon's hypothetical love child, who probably doesn't and won't exist, at +3300, Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) at +5000, and Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) at +15000 odds to rule. Looks like very, very few people are willing to wager that they'll see an onion sigil on King's Landing next week, but you never know.
Game of Thrones' series finale airs on Sunday, May 19 at 9/8c.
