Sunday July 19,2015 : Entertainment Betting: Is Mormont Next to Die on Game of Thrones?
In 2011, HBO unleashed its TV adaptation of George R. R. Martin's fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire, naming it after the first novel in the series: Game of Thrones. It was a big smash with both viewers and critics, and next April, Season 6 will be hitting the small screen to a rapt audience waiting to find out what everyone wants to know: who dies next?
According to the entertainment odds under the Film/Television Props category, Jorah Mormont is the favorite at 5/1. Mormont, played by Iain Glen, was last seen heading north with Daario Naharis (18/1) to go rescue their queen, Daenerys Targaryen (75/1).
At present, Mormont is still alive in the ongoing book series, but Martin has previously stated that people will die on television who don't die in the books.
The other top favorites to be terminated next are Ramsay Snow (now Bolton) at 7/1 and Alliser Thorne at 15/2. Bolton, portrayed by Iwan Rheon, is a violent bad guy who deserves his comeuppance, while Thorne (played by Owen Teale) recently led a mutiny against Jon Snow, who may or may not have been killed at the end of Season 5.
