Online gambling news in the UK reported that the last season will kick off with Queen Cersei at wars with Jon Snow, Daenerys Targaryen and many others around King’s Landing. Before Game of Thrones season 8 airs in early 2019, we should plan ahead and bet on who will kill Cersei Lannister.
Killer of Cersei Lannister
Who Kills Cersei in the Books?
The honest answer is nobody knows. Game of Thrones’ Season 8 will go beyond what was written in the books. For the purpose of betting on Cersei Lannister’s killer, we can examine Maggy the Frog’s full prophecy.
All of Maggy’s prophecy about Cersei has come true. She did wed the King, became Queen and had three children with Jamie Lannister. But what the prophecy in season 5 fails to mention is Cersei’s death. So we turn to the book:
“and when your tears have drowned you, the valonqar shall wrap his hands about your pale white throat, and choke the life from you.”
Tyrion Lannister (12/1)
After we have deciphered the prophecy, it came as no surprise that Tyrion Lannister has one of the best odds to kill Cersei Lannister. Valonqar is high valerian for little brother. That’s why online gambling sites in the UK estimate 12/1 odds for Tyrion to end his big sister’s life.
Considering the mutual hatred between the siblings, Tyrion killing Cersei is very plausible. After all, he killed his father for charging him with a crime he didn’t commit. We know that Tyrion is capable of murdering his own family.
Jamie Lannister (43/125)
Don’t forget that Cersei technically has another sibling. Even though Jamie Lannister is Cersei’s twin brother, he is younger than her by the minutes. The best online betting sites in the United Kingdom predict that Jamie (43/125) is the best bet to kill Cersei Lannister.
We believe that Jamie loves his sister but he would kill her if he had to; just like he did the Mad King. If the queen’s power hunt gets out of control, Jamie would kill Cersei to do the right thing. It wouldn’t come without a price though and a murder-suicide situation is highly possible.
Bet on the Killer of Cersei Lannister Apart from the Prophecy
It’s not called Game of Thrones without a twist. Hard-core fans are betting on Cersei Lannister’s killer to be Arya Stark (2/1). The theory is that Arya would disguise herself as Cersei’s little brother and kill her as a revenge for the Stark family. Of course for the Faceless Men method to work, Jamie or Tyrion Lannister has to die first.
At 1xBet Sportsbook, you can also bet on Cersei’s cause of death to be something else (13/2). It was revealed in season 7 that Cersei is pregnant with a fourth child. This throws Maggy’s prophecy off. However, the prophecy could still come true if Cersei died from miscarriage or during childbirth.
