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

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