Crystal Palace v Leeds United latest odds, news and free bets

Crystal Palace fans were ‘glad all over’ on Tuesday night after a Carling Cup semi-final win over Cardiff City, with the two teams playing the second leg on 24 January to determine who will reach the Wembley final

In the meantime, Dougie Freedman will be trying to get the Eagles focused on league matters, with Palace stationed in 12th place and looking to mount a challenge for the play-offs. You can get odds of 6/4 (Ladbrokes – £50 free bets) that the home side claim victory to climb up the Championship table.

Palace can certainly attack with menace and Wilfried Zaha will surely be back among the goals soon for his team, although perhaps the evergreen Darren Ambrose rates as a better bet at 9/1 (Victor Chandler – £50 free betting) to score the first goal of the game.

Leeds United played reasonably well at Arsenal in the FA Cup on Monday, with Simon Grayson’s team heading for a replay before Thierry Henry produced a fairytale moment at the Emirates.

The visitors sit just a point off the play-off places and can be backed at 15/8 to claim their sixth away win of the season, with 42 goals being scored in their 13 away games to date.

Ross McCormack is having an excellent campaign in front of goal and the 5/4 available about Over 2.5 Goals looks tempting when you consider there might be some tired legs amidst the Palace defence.
