This weekend’s baseball action will feature two different series’ among the six divisional leaders as the Dodgers host the Phillies in the National League and the Rangers visit Boston in the American League. Elsewhere, two surging playoff contenders will go head-to-head when defending A.L. Champion Rays head to New York to take on the Yankees. These matchups are all part of a full first June weekend of baseball. Read on as we look at those series’ and a few more, plus deliver our weekly feature highlighting some of the Top StatFox Power Trends for you to consider on your betting tickets over the next few days.

This is an unusual weekend in the junior circuit, as it seems that most of the best teams will be playing one another, while all of the sub-.500 clubs will be looking to improve their records against their own counterparts. The only series that matches a winning club vs. a losing club is in Toronto, where the Royals will be taking on the Jays. In Detroit, the division leading Tigers host the Angels, who are finally showing some signs of breaking out. The Halos are on a 3-1 run in which they’ve 27 runs. Detroit still maintains a 2-1/2 game lead in the Central Division despite being swept by Boston.

Meanwhile, in New York, the Rays visit brand new Yankees Stadium for the second time, hoping to duplicate the two wins they had a month ago. They have won five of six games to finally reach .500 again and are showing signs of what made them the league champs last year. However, New York is playing very well itself, having reached 10-games over .500 for the second time in 2009. Finally, in Boston, the Rangers and Red Sox will get together for a 3-game set. Boston has had its way with Texas of late winning 15 of the last 20 games overall and nine of 11 at Fenway Park.

In the National League, the big series pits the Phillies and Dodgers in a rematch of the 2008 Championship Series. Los Angeles has been the league’s best team all season long despite losing Manny Ramirez to the 50-game suspension last month. Still, they are catching the Phillies at the wrong time, as Philadelphia has won seven straight games, including the series opener between the teams on Thursday night. For the Dodgers, it was just their seventh loss at home this season against 20 wins, a set that has produced 10.1 units of profit for bettors. Elsewhere, the Cubs & Reds meet in the Queen City in a series of teams trying to keep up with the leaders in the Central Division, Milwaukee and St. Louis. Both Cincinnati and Chicago are playing plus-.500 baseball this year but neither seems to be able to put a long enough stretch together to make a run at the division lead.
