From TheRinger.com:

Increasingly, Thrones also lends itself to speculation in the financial sense of the word. As Thrones has ascended to its singular place in the splintered TV firmament, it’s not only come to be covered like the Oscars and the Super Bowl, but it’s started to support a similar secondary market of rumors and wagers. Thanks to the series’ big built-in audience, large (if shrinking) cast of characters, and uncertain endgame, Game of Thrones and gambling go together like lovestruck Lannister (or Targaryen) twins.

Some Thrones-related betting contests, like The Ringer’s Thrones Mortality Pool, are just for fun. But in recent years, a number of ostensible sportsbooks have gotten in on the action, with prominent sites such as Sportsbet, MyBookie.ag, and Pinnacle (which debuted its Thrones odds this year) trying to capture a piece of the (hot) pie. 

“We have seen some action on “Game of Thrones”, mostly small $10 bets,” Irene Harmony of MyBookie.com tells Gambling911.com.  “Most of the bets thus far have been on the next character to die but method of death is also seeing some action.”

“Game of Thrones” Season 7 starts this Sunday July 23 at 9 pm EST on HBO.
