The 2015 Big East projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2015 Big East Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Big East tournament.

A team's relative odds to win the 2015 Big East Championship depend only partly on their Big East bracket seed. Winning the Big East Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 Big East bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Big East Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Big East Championship championship than a team with a worse Big East tournament seed.

In addition, because Big East tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Big East conference games, Big East tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the Big East bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 Big East Championship than lower seeded teams in the Big East bracket.
