Bet365 cancel a bet

Cancelling a bet is a common occurrence in a sportsbook such as Bet365. This may be because the player has lost confidence in the expected outcome for several reasons, such as a last-minute lineup change. It may also be a mistake made unknowingly. The good news is that there is a way to cancel the bet and protect the stake if the bet slip is not yet live.

How to Avoid Cancelling a Bet on Bet365

After I explained how we can cancel a bet on Bet365, it is crucial to look at measures we can take to avoid putting ourselves in such a scenario:

1. Do Extensive Research

Proper research is critical in deciding which events/markets/odds we wish to wager on. This will let us know what to expect during the match and prepare for any outcome. Some things worth considering when researching include the team formation, the lineup, the injured players, and weather conditions.

2. Financially Capable to Wager the Bet

To avoid any regrets, it is key that we evaluate our finances and ensure we are okay to place the bet. If we realise the wager is too high, we should change the amount and stake what we are comfortable with in case the bet is incorrect.

3. Confirm The Bet

Before submitting the bet or making the bet slip live, pause and go through the details for one last time. We must ensure the amount is correct and the prediction is exactly what we intend to gamble on. Once we have confirmed the bet details, we can proceed to submit the bet slip.
