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

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