Liverpool hold down the top spot on the table, followed closely by Chelsea and Manchester City, with the latter still having two games in hand. Let's take a look at the full EPL table and go over the odds for each of the teams still vying for the title:

Manchester City hold the best odds of all the teams remaining in the hunt, courtesy of two games in hand and the top spot waiting for the Citizens if both games are won.

The way the schedule looks doesn't hurt either, as shared by FansAllStar Football:

City and Liverpool will play each other on Sunday, with the winner of that match taking a very strong option on the EPL title. In case of a draw, the odds should change slightly in City's favour, as the rest of the schedule looks very manageable for the club.

The most difficult matchup remaining is a trip to Goodison Park to take on Everton, who still have a chance of ending the season ranked fourth and qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

The Toffees have looked very strong in recent weeks, culminating in the dominant 3-0 win over Arsenal, but the squad is young and inexperienced and shouldn't pose too many problems for the all-star ensemble that City field.

Liverpool and Chelsea will still play each other, and the Blues will have to win at Anfield and not drop any more points along the way if they are to have any hope of winning the EPL title.

While the schedule may look favourable outside of the matchup with Liverpool, the lack of difficult matches for the Reds and the Citizens makes it unlikely Chelsea will have plenty more opportunities to gain ground on both teams, with their best chance coming this Sunday.

As for Liverpool, the team have won seven straight and haven't dropped any points at home since January, and a heavyweight battle with City couldn't come at a better time. You can't win championships without beating the best teams, and the Reds will get the opportunity to prove they deserve to lift the trophy for the first time since 1990 when they face the Citizens.

The final stretch of the EPL title race looks to be fairly straightforward, with the match between Liverpool and City most likely deciding how the rest of the season plays out at the top of the table.

But as the League's official Twitter account shows, nothing has been straightforward in this year's title race:

If Liverpool don't beat City on Sunday, the Citizens will still be the safest bet to go the distance, while Chelsea's odds will greatly improve. But given the kind of form the Reds are in and the fact the game will be played at Anfield, Liverpool are likely the safest bet to emerge victorious from that match.

And if that happens, the title is Liverpool's to lose.
