How one sportsbook comes up with gambling odds for ‘Game of Thrones’

When you think about popular events people like to gamble on, you typically think of March Madness, the Super Bowl, or presidential elections. These are tailor-made for gambling because they’re high-viewership events with a clear winner and loser.

You might not think you could bet on a TV show that has already wrapped filming. But you can, including on the upcoming season of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”

It’s strange to think about people betting real money on the outcome of a dramatic TV show, but people love gambling — 30 states have some version of legalized gambling. Some sportsbooks are allowing people to make various Game of Thrones bets before the eighth and final season, which debuts on Sunday, April 14.
