A team's relative odds to win the 2014 Big West Tournament depend only partly on their Big West bracket seed. Winning the Big West Tournament also depends on the dynamics of the 2014 Big West bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Big West Tournament seed may actually face a harder path to the Big West Tournament championship than a team with a worse Big West tournament seed.
In addition, because Big West tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Big West conference games, Big West 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 West bracket can have better odds to win the 2014 Big West Tournament than lower seeded teams in the Big West bracket.
