The 2015 Horizon League projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2015 Horizon League Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Horizon League tournament.
A team's relative odds to win the 2015 Horizon League Championship depend only partly on their Horizon League bracket seed. Winning the Horizon League Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 Horizon League bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Horizon League Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Horizon League Championship championship than a team with a worse Horizon League tournament seed.
In addition, because Horizon League tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Horizon League conference games, Horizon League 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 Horizon League bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 Horizon League Championship than lower seeded teams in the Horizon League bracket.
