The 2016 Big 12 projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2016 Big 12 Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Big 12 tournament.
A team's relative odds to win the 2016 Big 12 Championship depend only partly on their Big 12 bracket seed. Winning the Big 12 Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2016 Big 12 bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Big 12 Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Big 12 Championship championship than a team with a worse Big 12 tournament seed.
In addition, because Big 12 tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Big 12 conference games, Big 12 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 12 bracket can have better odds to win the 2016 Big 12 Championship than lower seeded teams in the Big 12 bracket.
