The 2017 Atlantic 10 projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Atlantic 10 tournament.

A team's relative odds to win the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship depend only partly on their Atlantic 10 bracket seed. Winning the Atlantic 10 Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2017 Atlantic 10 bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Atlantic 10 Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Atlantic 10 Championship championship than a team with a worse Atlantic 10 tournament seed.

In addition, because Atlantic 10 tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Atlantic 10 conference games, Atlantic 10 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 Atlantic 10 bracket can have better odds to win the 2017 Atlantic 10 Championship than lower seeded teams in the Atlantic 10 bracket.
