DON’T MISS: “Game of Thrones” – After seven tumultuous seasons jam-packed with political intrigue, dragon fire, cold wintry dread and gore galore, the wildly popular fantasy series is homing in on what is expected to be an epic conclusion. In the first of six remaining episodes, viewers will be reunited with Jon Snow (Kit Harington), Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) and their various allies, all of whom are bracing for a hellacious showdown with the Night King and his vast army of reanimated corpses. (Shudder.) And you thought the Red Wedding was bloody. (9 p.m. Sunday, HBO).

Other bets
