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

In addition, because Big South tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Big South conference games, Big South 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 South bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 Big South Conference Championship than lower seeded teams in the Big South bracket.
