SPOILER ALERT! This post discusses the latest odds on Game of Thrones, so turn away now if you are not yet up to date with developments in Westeros.

<p>The odds on Sansa Stark ruling Westeros by the end of Game of Thrones have been cut to 3/1 after she survived the Battle of Winterfell. Younger sibling Bran, also known as The Three-Eyed Raven, remains the favourite, but he has drifted from odds-on out to 5/2 with <a href=";a=b4150791-892f-469b-9b6a-7dfc6df0fb07&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="Ladbrokes">Ladbrokes</a>. Sansa is now just behind on 3/1 after emerging as a strong, pragmatic leader following years of tribulations. Gendry is third in the betting at 5/1 and he has a claim to the throne due to his status as Robert Baratheon’s bastard, while Jon Snow is out at 11/2 with Sky Bet.</p><p>Arya Stark, who sparked scenes of jubilation among Game of Thrones fans across the globe when she vanquished the Night King, is 10/1 with Ladbrokes. Quick-witted dwarf Tyrion Lannister is best priced at 12/1 with <a href=";a=a710bfac-73c1-4a57-b441-2caf1b9f397b&amp;f=1" target="_blank" title="William Hill">William Hill</a>, and you can now get 16/1 on his queen, Daenerys Targaryen, who is no longer seen as quite such a strong and stable leader. The bumbling Samwell Tarly, who spent most of the last episode on his back screaming – RIP Dolorous Edd – is 33/1 and Peter Baelish is 50/1 to return from the dead and seize the throne.</p><p>Cersei Lannister, who currently sits on it, is out at 80/1 as many think she is a goner, particularly if Arya gets anywhere near her. Her brother Jaime is also 80/1. If you are looking for a longer shot, the legendary Hot Pie is priced at 500/1 to rule Westeros. You can no longer bet on Ed Sheeran, after his character was revealed to have died during the war.</p>
