I hadn't read the books, I just managed to watch all episodes in 60 days. After some discussions here goes my comment.

Jon: 9/4

Cliché option. Hero archetype again? Come on! GoT already proved it is better than this.

Daenerys: 4/1

Although she's my favorite one, I don't believe she will survive much longer. She is slowly getting nuts and living a too cute love story with Jon. I believe she will burn Sansa after the latter denies bend the knee and then everybody will know she is crazy - as her father, BTW.

Cersei: 7/1

A mere antagonist who is losing strength, even with the Golden Company - without elephants!

The Night King: 8/1

Too nihilist option. A meteor would be a better one.

Tyrion: 10/1

Clever guy, but too Lannister and too anti-Lannister. He is a bohemian and cult guy, everybody know that this people does not want power.

Bran: 12/1

Being a three-eyed raven is far more interesting for him. It is clear he believes he has a superior and far more honorable duty.

Gendry: 12/1

Simply realistic. This is my official guess. "For things to remain the same, everything must change." The power is back to a Baratheon, just to keep the things stable.

Samwell Tarly: 12/1

This is another guy who won't fight for the Iron Throne. He wants to be a meister. But there's is something big waiting for him. Maybe he will kill the dragons after Daenerys got crazy. Although he did not have a good relationship with his father Randyll Tarly, he was sad for him and this brother Dickon burned alive by the dragons.

Sansa: 12/1

She is useful to prove that Daenerys is irreversibly crazy. Sansa won't bend the knee and then... Dracarys! Just like Randyll and Dickon Tarly.

Arya: 14/1

The Future Lady Baratheon!

Euron Greyjoy: 20/1

Yara will kill him, IMO. Idiots like him are not well-accepted anymore in 2019.

Jaime Lannister: 25/1

IMO, Cersei will send Mountain to kill him.

Varys: 50/1

If Littlefinger, Pycelle and other skilled sycophants are dead, why Varys could survive?

Theon Greyjoy: 66/1

Too ashamed and weak for the mission.

Ser Davos Seaworth: 80/1

Too honorable for the position.

Yara Greyjoy: 80/1

She kill Euron and probably will die 5 minutes later.

Brienne of Tarth: 100/1

Too honorable for the position.

Jaqen H’ghar: 100/1

(Wait... what if Gendry is actually... O_O)

Melisandre: 100/1

There are not so many believers in the Lord of Light anymore.

Gilly: 250/1

Wow. I've never considered this one! Seriously?
